Self Reliance Outfitters has a reproduction swedish stainless steel M40 kit up for preorder. 80 bucks, ship date is around September for US. Considering the prices for original I immediately grabbed one. Hopefully the quality is solid, been looking for something like this for a long time. Wasn't ready to drop 200 bucks on the originals.

Not to double post but its been a while and I finally received my mess kit. Its pretty shiny and hefty, I don't got a real m40 to compare with but feels like its very durable. Have to wait for a weekend to give it a try. Definitely didn't come with an alcohol burner but I got a tatonka stove that would go with this perfectly.

@ancienttyrael

Thanks for posting that info. I had seen mention of it and was considering purchasing the set. Have you tried it yet? What do you think of the quality? Happy with your purchase still? Thanks!
