I've been "cruising" the auction sites looking for Italian LBE for my Carcano. Don't really need it, just want it to help round out the
presentation. I've noticed that while slings, ammo pouches, and bayonet frogs can be found, not much else of the Italian Soldiers LBE seems to be available
that's not reproduction (and a tad on the spendy side for me).
So, have any of you others noticed this or had a problem? What books, if any, are "the thing to read" regarding an Italian, and maybe even a Japanese soldiers fighting gear?
What other LBE (Load Bearing Equipment) are any of you collecting? Anybody into a Re-enacting unit?
I've almost assembeled the entire East German set to include a field pack. Might make a nice picture with my MPI AK74N clone.
