The shield is well built. The gauge of steel is good, I have not used a micrometer on it. The leather straps are sturdy. The only negative comment I have, would be I can see where the shield was polished on its front.

The actual shield is great, no complaints. The leather straps are old hard and not usable, I will have to replace. Museum replica triple charged, the extra charges eventually dropped off after I called and complained. The poor quality straps and the triple charge is why I can only give 3 out 5 stars.

Man this thing is sturdy! They said it's 18ga, but mine measures .0625~, which is closer to 16 gauge, so no complaints there! Fit and function are great, awesome!

This is the first shield I have ever owned, and I love it! It is made out of a good steel and is a great size for maneuver ability. Comes with decient heavy grade leather straps. I look forward to customizing this wonderful piece of equipment! Thanks for giving me a good start MRL!
