    One is a Model 400 and the other is a Model 400A. Both had the carry bags and the wrench, the 400A even had a windscreen. New fuel and checked the pumps. Both worked great.

    :clap: Great score! No experience with the 400A, but the old original 400 is still one of my favorites. Best stove to actually cook on that ever came down the pike! From frying up a batch of fish, to cooking eggs, pancakes, etc. the 400 gets it done. I've got a couple of 123's, 8rs, MSR whisperlites, the 400 is the one I use the most. Also handles a windy day better than most others. Enjoy your stoves!

    Thanks jrs08,
    I have to admit I don't use these types of stoves. My usual is an old 8R or one of my Trangia stoves. I do plan on taking one with me next time we go camping. Need to find out what the difference is between the 400 and 400A - they look identical except for the color. Think I'll take the 400 as it seems to have the best feedback so far.

    Morning, fyrwokr,

    GREAT stoves, and well done on scoring them both! These are both outstanding stoves, and work very well, from quick boiling, to delicate simmering, and with a proper windscreen (metal folding model), both stoves will do whatever you need done. I would be careful about using the foil screen which came with your 400A. You do NOT want to wrap that completely around your stove, of you will get a nasty surprise!!! :shock: :shock: :doh: :doh: =; =; :thumbdown: :thumbdown: Those stoves, like most others, need "some" air, and should never be fully enclosed, for safety sake!

    Congratulations on scoring two wonderful, powerful, yet delicate stoves!! :thumbup: :clap: :clap: :D Take care, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    P.S. Look in the Reference Section, for photos of the Sigg windscreens that were designed for the Model 400 family of stoves. They work very well, indeed, and if you use a Sigg pot set, pack great, too.

    Markill also made a hanging pot set for these (Markill Stormy, they also made a version for the Campingaz Bleuette). If you search the Paraffinalia section, you'll see one there.

    Best regards,

    Wim

    My wife is RIGHT. ](*,) I have to much stuff. :doh: I do have a Coleman with a Sigg Tourist set but it is a Model 400. I have had this for probably 20 years and have never taken it in the field. This was made in December of '81. It will go with me next time out - might just take all three :lol:
