Some collectors are against repros. As a matter of principle, or because they can afford to. I personally think they can be great as a filler in your collection or for re-enactment, as long as they are well made.
These reviews are based on items I have actually bought. I will refrain here from bashing every poor repro in the market (I could dedicate a seperate site to that). Most of my other articles also mention known existing repros, but that’s mainly to show how you can tell they aren’t originals.
