Not sure why you want Replica stuff, there is plenty of real stuff available out there....
Anyway, I'd try www.tridentmilitary.com
- or else, try ebay.

As I am well aware comrade, but when one only wants it for looks, why spend all that money for authenticity?

I'm not planning to look at it and say "that's part of the Soviet Union."

Thanks for all the suggestions.

Reenactors I know commonly buy the repro stuff so they don't muck up their real deal items while running around.
