    Please tell me in your opinion trusty British military surplus shops who run an internet shop.

    (You may off course write in here little shops in Britain too, which don't run internet shops, but please tell it me, if I can't order there via homepage.)

    Thank you!

    Endicotts for sure.

    Smaller surplus shop is Pools Surplus in Hartlepool, had great service from them more than once. Their web shop is all the air soft type gear, best to message them if your looking for a specific surplus item though, they have loads they haven’t got online

    It's very interesting for me, because they buy and sell quiet different stuff than the Germans.
    And if I want to recommend German equipment to somebody, it isn't so easy to find in Britain.

    People really seem to buy mainly what they know without thinking about if perhaps something else would be the better choice for their purpose.
