    An offer was made in good faith. If you dont want to sell your rig so be it. No need to do this. Won't forget.
    OK Smith it’s Colonel Decker. I hate it when a plan comes together. You’re surrounded. I want you and Peck and Baracus, to throw out your weapons, all the ration packs you stole and come out with your hands up. You have fifteen seconds.

    DPM Shortback PLCE Bergan, complete with side/rocket pouches (no yoke). This has been my bergan for the last 12 years. Selling because I have a new bergan now. The waist belt has been cut away and there's small hole on the bottom of the exterior front pouch courtesy of an E-Tool. Other than that, it's absolutely solid. My name is written on it, hence the black mark.

    SOLD


    MOLLE ACU First Aid pouch. Ideal utility/LMG pouch. Pretty much brand new, never used. Was going to spray it and add it to my stock of pouches, decided to sell instead.

    €15 ono


    MICH style airsoft helmet. I think it's made of fibre glass. The shape is ideal for wearing peltors/active ear defence/headsets. Heavy enough to pass off as the real thing, not that I'd ever suggest wearing an airsoft helmet for military training because the issued helmet doesn't accommodate peltors and alike.

    €30 ono

    I might have a few more things, will check the shed some other day.

    Prices not inclusive of P&P. Please PM if interested.

    Bergan is gone, the rest is still available if anyone is interested.

    Curious.Did you add the top tensioners on the shoulder straps yourself or did they come fitted.In my time ihad both an OG Sabre(1998) and a DPM one(2003-2007) before the one i am issued now .None of those models had top tensioners. Something the issue model BADLY needs!

    Apod, post edited to reflect adjustments. top tensioners were added after to improve carriage balance. and yes i agree.....issued pack definitely is missing top tensioners. especially when heavily loaded!
