    Default Dealing with Hikishop?

    Hello, I'd like to get a WW2 Imperial Japanese uniform to wear when I shoot my Arisakas, and Maybe, eventually join a reenacting group with (if they'd accept a pasty white boy that is, haha). The only source I've been able to find is Hikishop, And due to the fact they are based in China I'm a little hesitant. Anyone have experience buying from them? Are they trustworthy? I'd appreciate any feedback.

    Thanks, -Yardbird

    You could try these fellas in The UK I've never dealt with them though.

    Hi Yardbird, I bought a few items from them a few years ago and I didn't have any problems and their items are very accurate to the real thing but the way things are in the world right now .... ?

    I have not dealt with them personally, but friends from our club have and they did not have any issues. But it was a few years ago now.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I've heard the Hikishop is of.. Dubious quality recently. If it's just for casual shooting? I'd say it's fine. For reenacting? I'd recommend finding a unit and asking where they get their uniforms from. Thehistorybunker is also horrid quality as I've heard from other reenactors.

    I have had ridiculous issues with Chinese sizing. Say what you want about Americans, but a Chinese large is a US small

    Also, never expect decent quality from any Chinese reproduction (as Medicalammocrate says). As one of my good friends says "looks good from afar, but far from good."
