    Cool Repro Tiger Stripe M-1 Camo Cover

    ever since i see pics of this type of cover in use i wanted one but it seems these are very rare as Ive never seen an original come up !!

    normally these days i tend to stay away from repros but in the case of this type of cover i decided to give in the search for an original & pic up a good repro instead not sure how this compare to an original but it does look pretty good

    Looks good to me. Were these just a special forces thing or general issue? I'm the same, I dont like repros in general but if it is something I like that is too expensive to afford, I will live with a repro.

    cheers mate

    to be honest i know very little about these types of covers i think they were a private purchase thing so maybe anyone that wanted one could get one ?

    Oh well, either way, it looks cool. And as the pic shows, they were definitely used. Judging by the M14s being carried, I would say that the guys are Marines, or at least the photo was taken early in the war.
