I'm on the e-mail list for a military surplus outfit, Uncle Sam's Retail Outlet, and it seems they're going out of business. I received an e-mail that they're offering 50% off online orders Feb 3-4.
Frankly they look kind picked through on their website, but I found one deal if it truly is 50% off.
It's the MSR USMC XGK EX Small Unit Expeditionary Stove Combo Kit. Basically a MSR XGK-EX stove with the fuel bottles painted OD. Their current price is $249.99, but if it truly is 50% off on the 3rd and 4th, it's a good deal with everything it comes with.
The gear junkie in me wants to pick one (or more) up, but I don't see myself needing one anytime soon.
Combo Kit Includes:
MSR XGK EX Multi-Fuel Expedition Stove | 7310015786413 | uncle sam's retail outlet
- (2) 22 oz. Fuel Bottles
- (1) Simmer Plate
- (2) Fuel Jets
- (1) Repair Kit
- (1) Fuel Pump
- (1) Fuel Pump Retention Cap and Plug

- (1) XGK EX Stove
Same stove appears to be $160 on Amazon, without
any fuel bottles, and 20oz fuel bottles on Amazon at $20 a piece.
On Amazon, it states the following fuels can be used, depending on which jet you install:
GK Jet: white gas, kerosene, unleaded auto fuel and aviation gas
X Jet: diesel and jet fuel
