  1. It's a little unfortunate that the terminology is so similar but your legion id that we're looking for is 32492. https://501st.com/members/displaymember.php?userID=32492&costumeID=124
  2. You should put this in the gallery for long term storage/accessibility.
  3. Best match so far is RAL 7034 I think. @R2Dan made this match. Maybe he has found an even better match by now.
  4. A fair question, but worth asking them about. Since it's not functional and they should be able to see that with a simple inspection - it should be fine, as long as it's deactivated to italian spec. You may need a collector license or similar. If it's just parts of a prop and not an actual deactivated sterling it should 0 issues even if they take a look at it.
  5. I'm sure you know better, but all I've heard is that Italy has pretty liberal gun laws, so getting a deactivaded sterling might not be so difficult after all in your case. It might be worth looking up.
  6. +60% in 5 years. But I was indeed joking, because all that needs to be said about the MR E-11 has already been said. Clearly you you still want one and we won't stop you. To get good advise you need to be open about what you intend on using it as, because for trooping it's pretty terrible. The only thing it's good for is as a display piece, and even for that, there are more accurate options for less money.
  7. If you're buying metal for for the purpose of increased value over time, I would recommend gold.
  8. Yeah, we're averaging about 1200 new posts a month.
  9. I wouldn't worry about it.
  10. Almost anything can be made good enough to be approved. Question is how much effort you need to put in and how you value your time and effort. It's a bit like trying to make a race car out of an old Volvo. It can be done, but by the time you're finished you've probably spent more time and money than it would cost to buy a good used Porsche to begin with.
  11. I kind of like having the snaps able to rotate. And not even once has any of my snaps failed. But I use heavy duty snaps so that might help.
  12. Personally I find that just folding the elastic over itself at each end where the snap sits works just as well and uses half the amount of snaps.
  13. Most of the forum is open to anyone, no login required.
