"Reproine" 509th PIR helmet
« on: January 17, 2017, 04:19:22 AM »
No...I'd never heard the term reproine before either!  Apparently it's a mix of "repro" and "genuine" items. So...what do y'all make of this one?!  :o

Well, that's....interesting. $400 for a rusty shell. Think I'll break out the kids paint and start making some money...

I hope this reproine terminology doesn't catch on!
I'll be very nice and just say that this 310 quid!! rust bucket is not for me.
