"WPG militaria asks its customers for reviews butdeletes any review that does not fawn over its (shoddy) products. WPG asked me for feedback, I generously gave it an honest review for its poor quality item. It deleted my review and only shows the 'kiss ass' comments. That dishonest approach to marketing, is a warning to any customer thinking of doing business with WPG. I learned the hard way that its goods are shoddy and very very bad value. Do not get ripped off. Avoid WPG. I will in future."
"What Price Glory (WPG)... a fine purveyor of vintage militaria, apt in name and serious about their wares.I stumbled upon them a little over several years ago, and have been a satisfied, intermittent customer since. It's quality World War II stuff--with a sizable chunk of WWI articles and what have you--guaranteed to fulfill a myriad needs in this realm. (It seems as though if re-enactors are the majority market.) Authenticity and a retro look aren't all you can get out of a purchase; there's also the added benefit of functionality--being military gear in design, granting the degree of ruggedness varies with age and individual use. However, most items are in excellent condition. WPG does stock up on items made in this century, too, but it's usually fashioned in the style of another era. They might branch out into many other things with time.Given that so much of what they offer *isn't* found in random, "anything goes" surplus dumping grounds, prices are a tossup if they aren't already in the Very-High-Yet-Affordable-If-You-NEED-It range. (One could possibly use the individual item's list of customer reviews to gauge popularity, alongside the number of times the stock number reaches "0".) If there's a sale, it might be negated by the shipping rate, but sometimes you do manage to get a great deal; just always be on the lookout and subscribe to the item-stock mailing list. It's better than a ludicrous bidding war on ebay.Although my dealings with customer service are ancient (it was the frazzled owner by his lonesome), Jerry Lee's employed many folks since then, and is ensconced in matters regarding (apparent) massive business expansion and logistics centralization. My last order required international shipping since it came from Dubai... I'm guessing that's why the S&H fee was so friggin' high--the packaging sure didn't warrant that kind of money.Nonetheless... if you're looking for high quality, vintage military wares or have money to blow, just ask yourself, "What Price Glory?"Highly recommended."
