to be a German soldier?plan on 2000 dollars to do it right. an American GI? about half as much still quite expensive because of the price of an M1 Rifle 400 to 600 dollars. you can go British for about 5 to 7hundred and you can be a Red army man complete from head to toe including the Rifle for from between three hundred and five hundred unless you want to be Vassil Saitsev himself with a 450 dollar scoped Moisin Nagant 91/30. so do a little research and consider the cost and what really interests you. but the experience is worth the expense. then when you watch the history channel you can say yeah I know what they are talking about after all, I was there.
