Looking for RCW, B Unit, Late Version.

Hi all, Trying to complete a 24 hour set of an RCW ration. I have a late version RCW 4-A. Looking to have a B unit of the same era but not necessarily the matching one which would be the 4-B Chicken Ala King. Can buy, trade or both. For trade: I have a "modern" Food Packet Survival General Purpose f...

Re: EBAY Asshat of the Month Award

Let's keep this going. ALL TIME HIGH - $324.89 for 1 case! Only 27 dollars per meal. Or to put it another way... about 1.9 cents per calorie!


What makes me sad is 4 cases have actually been bought!

I saw someone saying some 1957 b units were korean war era....

Super Neat! I love the chocolate says "reserve" chocolate! Tinned rations are the coolest.

Re: Price Gouging Due to COVID-19

It's nuts out there!!! My jaw is dropping each day with the prices. I have been watching this situation since late January and finally pulled the trigger to get some new cases of MREs for "in case". Went to the local surplus store (the only REAL one left in my area) and they had about a pallet worth...

Re: My first Review video!....and a question

Will be checking this out later... awesome! I've got one of these too in a green pouch that I need to try. I'm about 99% sure they are a commercial ration marketing as military... Like a lot of the Russian rats you see out there. You can browse their website and order them yourself. Here's a transla...
