My new stove finally arrived from the states. The build quality of these stoves is very good. I had to do a little cleaning and sort out the pip. After that it functioned as it should. However I haven't bought this one to use yet. I have just bought a Coleman made M1942 dated 1945 to use, just waiting for that one to arrive. I really like the fact it's made from stainless steel. Yet so light. It's a robust stove as can be seen from the pictures. The temptation to light it is hard to resist I have to admit. The stove came with matching 1944 canister too which is in good condition. I have a reproduction instruction label but again am in two minds to use it. All in all I'm very pleased. Which is good as I paid slightly over the odds to get this one.
