Hey Para,
Greetings from another Montanan! I just wanted to say thanks for posting this info. I just picked up a used one for $20 and converted it to 12v. Works awesome, will be great for hunting this fall.

Resurrecting this thread because I just bought one. $31 delivered and it arrives tomorrow.

How do you heat water with it? Will a plastic 500 ml water bottle fit inside? How were troops supposed to heat water with it as they don't issue water bottles or bagged water.

Ah so you got that one haha.

I’ve been trying to buy one for a month but keep losing out or the price keeps going stupid high.
All the best, Gents.

Yeah, I've been watching a string of them for a few weeks and some have gone stupidly high and some I forgot to follow-up at auction close time. One more bid would have gotten this one away from me. :lol:
