Used Military Items

When shopping used gear online, what on earth are you really buying? In order to avoid the hazzle of returns for both you and us, we gave it some thought, how to manage this in the best possible way. Below you will find our gradings that offer you a clear idea of what to expect. IThis same system has proven it’s worth in the world of vinyl records where the condition of the item is absolutely essential.

Mint (M)
Absolutely perfect in every way. Never been used and often sealed.
Near Mint (NM)
The item has been moved around, it looks new and may have been used a few times. There are no marks and is in general in very good condition. The whole package is complete.
Very Good Plus (VG+)
A few further faults are acceptable, but nothing that really compromises the item visually or functionally. A little rub and light marks.
Very Good (VG)
It’s seen a bit of life, but is still usable. Light visible scratches may appear or vague color change due to UV, washing or wear and tear. You can still use it and enjoy looking at it, but it is visually and functionally USED.
Good (G)
To be honest you’re making trouble for yourself here, as Good means Bad. We only sell something really desirable in this condition, with a bargain price and a full, no holds barred description to match.
Fair (F) / Poor (P)
These items will be a disturbing experience. Expect major issues, wear or tear. The item itself is beaten, badly worn and has deep scratches and maybe even holes or rips. The item is approaching death.
