    I'm going to have to second ebay alot of the surplus stuff I see on the net is really just built to mil spec but never mil issued and not by a company that deals with the military

    and it took me a second your title didn't match your topic, then I realized you meant sites like websites and not sights like gun sights.

    I think someone in the yardsale was selling surplus gear a couple months back. Wonder if he still has it for sale
    I remember him having Korean War US issue wool pants

    Thanks for the recommendations guy, I've already checked all those usual suspects. It looks like I just missed the boat on the German pants I'm looking for, only small sizes are available everywhere.

    Post title fixed also...oops

    well, if its authentic .mil issue, it probably wont come in ultra-large sizes, the german army probably does not buy their sizes for oversized keyboard commandos.
    not calling you fat, just saying that there may be a limited selection of sizes given the general expectation of a solider to be healthy and fit.

    I'm not talking 48" waist. I need a 38" I can wear US issue Large pants no problem. I've found the inventory running low as most places only have S and M in stock. I see you're not calling me fat, but are you calling me a Keyboard commando? If only you knew...:rofl:

    of course not!
    i think WMD is actually more active in training and practice than most larger gun forums out there.
