  • Last call for stateside inventory orders August 9 !!!

    We will be going back to Europe to buy inventory from August 20th. to October 1st.  We will stop accepting new orders and hide all of our US based inventory from August 9th to October 7th.  During our trip, check back with us frequently and keep up with us on facebook as we will be posting new items constantly as we find them.  If you buy from us while we are in Europe you will get a much better price than if we have to ship it all back here first.  If you buy multiple items, you will be able...

  • New German reenacment rifle grenades now available!

    We are ready to release our newest reenactment G.Sprgr.30's.  They are now available for purchase.  All in all, these are our best ones yet with several improvements in appearance and construction with only minor trade offs.  The best improvement is that they come to you basically ready to take into the field without painting or much work of any kind. Another improvement is that you can now fill them with smoke or powder with out worrying about shrapnel.  This new construction also enabled us to drop the price of rifle grenades (down to $18 from $20 for five rounds and...

  • War's End Shop coming soon

    As we expand our manufacturing to include more Allied gear and generally open up to making more than just German stuff we are recognizing the need for an easier to spell web address.  For this reason we will be testing a new name, War's End Shop or warsendshop.com.  For the time being the new address will simply navigate you to our current site so you can use either address.  We will be changing our banner and a few other odds and ends gradually as well as putting up more U.S. gear and pre orders.  One product in particular is very...

  • 8cm Gr.W.34 page renamed

    We have changed our 8cm Gr.W.34 page to Mortar, Artillery, & Anti-Tank.  We changed it because we are expecting to post more items that would fit this category and it seemed better to change this category rather than create a whole new one.  Our focus is still on the 8cm.

  • New items posted

    We have added 6 new items including two US items.  8 and 5cm mortar fuses are finally available.  We also picked up a very beautiful binocular case with the original strap. We are working on several molds for 8 and 5cm rounds along with several other parts.  We will be releasing our 3rd generation of reenactment rifle grenades soon.  We will post again soon.

  • New Tools

    We recently acquired a few new tools; a mini mill and an original German sewing machine. The mill is proving very useful and we are already dreaming up bigger plans.  It might be time for us to bring some of our CNC milling in-house.  It could solve many of our set up cost problems for our bigger projects.  We are waiting on some parts but our sewn projects will all be made on the original pfaff sewing machine very soon;  It may even work for leather and heavy cord, fingers crossed.

  • General update

     The last month or so has been very slow and that has taken a toll on some projects and slowed them down.  As a few more orders come in, we are able to start the ball rolling again on multiple items.  A recent wood box order has given us the opportunity to try out some new manufacturing techniques which produced very nice finger joints much more efficiently than before.  The order also reminded us how much time goes into even the simplest of boxes. Our pricing for the boxes is accurate as quoted in the listings and further discounts aren't...

  • US Pineapple grenade project poll

    We need your help!  How much would you pay for a display quality reproduction WWII US pineapple grenade that actually "worked"? You would pull the pin, pop the spoon and the grenade would make a loud bang sound (about as loud as a blank rifle round.)  If it was easy to use, safe, and cost about $2 to refill?  We need to know because this is a huge project that will cost a lot to set up and we have to know how much we will have to sell them for in the end.  Ask your friends, contact us, please...

  • General update

    Several projects are making steady progress.  There was a little trouble matching the font for the 8cm Range table so now we must go back and create the font ourselves;  that added some time to that project.  Our sunglasses are selling quickly so if you want a pair get them soon before they're gone.  We're going to start making 8cm cleaning brushes shortly, as well as ff33 field phone cranks and 8cm Gr.W.34 sight flags.  In short there are many items in the works and we hope some of them will be finishing up next month some time.

  • 8cm range tables are making progress

    We picked up the steel blanks for the 8cm range tables.  We posted a picture on the schiesstafel page.  The next step is starting the massively expensive metal stamp to press the markings into the blank.  We will keep updating the site as this project progresses.  Reserve a table now to make sure you get one for the $150 quoted price.  The finished tables will likely be slightly more expensive.
