IMA Repro Artillery rig questions....

OK, I know this is probably a blasphemous question here, but I shall ask anyway in hopes of some input.

I just got a 1914 Erfurt (kind of redundant, huh?) Artillery Luger in a trade deal. Now I would like to get the holster rig and accessories for it. At some point, of course it would be nice to get an original set, but for now I was thinking of buying the repro rig from IMA for $160. It supposedly comes with the holster, cleaning rod, shoulder stock and mounting iron, twin mag pouch, and shoulder straps. I know it comes in black leather, and I gather from Jan's book on Imperial Lugers (which I own, and think it is really excellent, I plan on buying the rest in the series...) it should really be brown.

In any case, I was wondering if any of you have any experience with this set, what kind of quality is it? Does it look good for display? Is it worth it for what it is? Seems like a pretty good deal for everything you get...

Any help or input would be appreciated!

Man, I couldn't have said it better George! You guys are spot on. I have had several of these in my shop for modification because they wouldn't fit. The leather is generally too thick. I have just made a shoulder strap for a client who needed it because the one they sent with it would not thread thru. Too thick and too wide.
Garfield is right, the $160 is not chump change and could be a start on a real investment rig.
Ed is correct, years from now it will be difficult to give away an IMR rig when any money you put into original stuff will increase in value. Plus you will have to look at the piece of crap next to your pistol for all those years with disapointment laying heavy on your heart.
