Re: Reproduction Officer Stars

The nuts has different sizes and different thread sizes so it depends on what size u need. They are all in galvanised steel so they are all magnetic.

I spray paint them and use them to secure wappens, rear spine, some base etc.

Baden GR 110

Hi guys,

Need some enlightenment.

I thought Baden units are part of the B. A. XIV armee Corp but this one is stamped GR 110 1916 B. A. XI..

I am confused and the other GR 110 of black liner of mine has the same stamping both on the rear visor and inside the helmet skull.

The beaded ring kugel was gradually replaced in 1887 to the M95 smooth ring that was integrated into the neck. The changes often reached the troops with a certain delay. ...accordingly to Page 419 of The German Artillery.

Hi Jeremy,

The threads for the kugel differs so you must make sure you get a kugel with threads that fixes into the base. Otherwise, buying the base and the kugel will be a better alternative.
