M1874 Meat Can
« on: June 18, 2020, 08:14:59 pm »
Gentlemen,  I just saw where What Price Glory (Who else?!) has a reproduction M1874 Meat Can for sale.  Looks very nice, but not cheap at $85 plus shipping.  Looks like Jerry Lee has done it again!

By the way, it's on e-Bay, but I don't know if it's on his website yet.

Hi

I guess I'll order later tonight.  On the work computer and they get upset by ebaying.  At least it looks useful unlike the 1872 teapot looking deal.

Looking thru their ebay site I'm seeing lots of interesting stuff.  Never thought I'd see a new 100 round krag bandolier.  He really seems to be going all in on "our" era.

Hi Drydock

I have both the tan and blue 100 round bandolier, they're great, but a little hard to wear.  I used them for the long range part of the matches.  I wish he'd do the knife.  I didn't get one of those in the right size.  The one from Kult of Athena is about 2 inches too long and an inch too wide.

You might try searching for the item by name, and when(if) you find it, then go to his Ebay store, or just click on "other items from this seller".

For what it's worth, I asked a while back whether they planned to offer the utensils, too, they said they were planning to.  (Of course, plans can change, but I hope they do it.)  They've got just about everything you need to do an Indian Wars impression, or Span Am for that matter.

HI

Well, got the meat can, its just like the WW1 and WW2 ones, but thinner in how much it will hold.  Guess everybody was thinner then, maybe even here in Oklahoma.
