Vietnam Era collection pics

I finally got around to taking some pics of my Vietnam Era collection. It started out as a pistol belt and some magazine pouches for my retro AR15, and then it grew over the years.

It has been a fun process and I have enjoyed the time it took.

Rifles.


M16 belt and a couple of holsters and mess kits.


Pack with the rest of the kit.


M14 belt.


Pack.


Belt for the Thompson I want to get.


Helmet and some gas masks.


Some canteens.


Flak jacket, mattress, poncho, liner.


Radio and law tube.


Some edged items and digging tools and extra bipod.


A few other assorted items.


I forgot a compass and I have a USMC wire cutter to add.

ETA a few more pics.

Some boots.


Some uniform shirts, and some bandoleers.


Compass.


Some other odds and ends.

All I see is heavy, as in too heavy to haul around with that stuff stuck on me, especially when wet and stinky.

Thanks from dwight55

I used to have a collection a lot like that, but they made me turn it all in to Supply before they would let me go home. It seemed like a pretty good trade at the time.

Thanks from CAVman, 2336USMC, nf1e and 3 others
