    Does anyone know where i can source press studs for an N3b ?
    Im wanting to make a small modification by adding these to the wind flap at the very bottom , just to keep it from opening up in the winter and stopping the wind blowing around my nether regions !

    I have line 20, 24 and more in nickel and black but I’ll bet you can find them locally for less than shipping. Too bad you weren’t close. We could have a mod party!

    Would these be the same for the inner pocket of a B10? Is the measurement to outer dimension of female/top half of the stud?

    do U want to add a stud in the white circle shown ?
    For Mash, all-in incl ship should be ard US$65 +- shipped. Advantage is it is mil spec. & matching & is by Scovill

    For Tandy, it is cheaper but just matt black finish is available, size is a bit smaller [1mm small than MASH's] & is ard US$40 shipped

    For idealist, one should hunt for NOS carr snap that pop up in eBay once in a while, but you still need that punch from maybe Tandy
    The last one is the cheapest. Haven't check the details.

    Carl...if I may...dont put two holes in this jacket....may ruin it for ever...
    I would stitch some kind of collar hooks...or velcro strips...but no perforation.IMHO.
