    It does look like it's been there and done that. Probably carried by a 3rd Division Fallschirmjäger in the Falaise Pocket. It will go well with my repro helmet. Now I have to find a holster. It...

    It grows on you. I didn't like the photos of them I've seen either but holding it in person it looks more complete I guess. Everything just looks too "new" which it is.
