    Private purchase M91

    Another recent acquisition from a Finnish source.

    I cant seem to  find any difference ( besides the labels ) between this set and others in my collection.

    Hiya Rip!

    I missed this one too Smile I have the same exact uniform in my collection. At least 15 years now, I think. It came with a hat too.

    I noticed some very minor differences between this and my genuine m/91 jacket. Minor enough that I don't remember what they are!

    Thanks Alex, was lucky to find this set.  A Viking living in  Minnesota brought it back from Finland  some years ago but never used it.   Right place, right time..

    Hey Steve,


    Very minor...  Plastic draw cord locks are the only difference I can see besides the labels.


    Wanted to use the pants for camping and the top for bumming around ( it has great pockets positioned perfectly for chairborne commandos ), but just cant bring myself to soil the set. Plenty other candidates...

    Note that the smock has lapel rank Velcro as the latter M91s did.
