Excellent photo. Nice collection. The picture should help the new guys to see the difference in the clip and spear point cut down M1905's and the difference in the cut down and factory M1 10 inch blades.

I'm want to purchase a bayonet for my son's Christmas gift, he has a1903 Sprigfield, was thinking about a SA cut-down or a UFH cut-down. He would like a 16" bayonet but I don't want to take a chance on not getting one when they come up on the E-store.

I'd go for the SA cut-down. It'd be a nice compliment to the SA rifle.

You can got Lowe's and get a can of "Amazon Silt" color paint which is very, very close to early WW2 OD green. I repainted a helmet liner with it and it matches an untouched helmet I inherited almost perfectly, as well as a couple of unrestored scabbards I have. I think I heard about the tip on G503.com (WW2 Jeep forum). HTH

Hacker- the color is #6010-4 Amazon Silt Green. You can get the color mixed for any paint Lowes carries. I'll go with an exterior flat.t Green (#6010-4)Amazon Silt Green (#6010-4)

Glynn863,

From the later remarks regarding the Lowe's paint on this thread I've deduced that #6010-4 Amazon Silt Green is a mixed color that comes in a can. A few questions -

I assume that minimum quantity for mixed paint at Lowe's is one gallon, correct?

What type of paint did you use on helmet liner? Exterior Enamal?

Did you spray or brush it on? Assuming you sprayed; did you thin it and use a regular auto paint style spray gun? If so, can you give advice on thinning it out for spraying?

I have a number of things that I need to repaint in WWII OD - including the three CMP Bayo scabbards that I ordered and hope I get :D. A nearby surplus store usually has the WWII OD spray cans (Aervoe is the make I think) that I have used for various items including things that go on my jeep, but that stuff is really pricey now. Any help on a more economical, good WWII OD color paint that I can spray is greatly appreciated.

I bought a half-pint sample can of Valspar Auditions, satin finish latex. I assume you can also get an oil-base, but latex was easier for me. Just be sure to ask for the sample-size can. I used a brush in all cases, and the trick is to use a good quality (USA-made) trim brush, about 1-1/2". I did not thin the paint at all, and it looked quite good with no brush marks that I could see on the small items I painted, and I still have over half the can left. Larger items would probably require an obviously larger brush or possible sprayer. Follow the sprayer manufacturer's recommendations for thinning to the proper viscosity. HTH
