  • German reissued Italian messkit

    115.00

    The Italian army messkit (Gavetta Modello 1930) was a commonly seen item within the German army. Prior to re-issue in the German army they where mostly painted green by the Germans. This example came out of a small find in Italy just recently and would be hard to upgrade. I have 10 pieces in stock, they are all in the same unissued condition and would be a great addition to any field gear collection! I will always pick a nice example in the same condition as pictured!
