    Two clip on genny carriers? You hit the jackpot!

    Rogers is a good one, I've got a Coleman here, most were pretty well build. You could make a collection of M1950 stoves alone, all the manufacturers, Coleman being the best of the lot, and it's a coin toss if SMP or Fiesta was the worst!

    Good thing is parts are available worldwide, the O-ring for the tank cap/pump assembly is off shelf, the pump leather is easy to make if need be, and I've been told that a piece of cork will do yeoman's duty in the NRV spendidly.

    I've tarted mine up, packed in a cut-down P-38 can opener in with the spare genny, and mounted a spark lighter on to the wrench, no looking for a match or trying to open a can of ham and mothers (yea, right!) for this old soldier, no sir!
