Hi

Recently picked up an avenger gmt night mission LE and it came with the deployment and military green strap.

For removing the buckle there appears to be two screws at one end instead of the usual spring bar; do you remove both screws ? If I wanted to fit a new strap and does anybody know if a genuine rubber strap will fit this style of buckle?

Many thanks Image

What are the numbers on the underside of each strap? I'm pretty sure that the "buckle" end is longer on a deployment strap, so you might need to get one specific for that type of buckle.

Hi

Thanks for your reply.

See pics, I believe this strap is standard and can also be used with a regular pin buckle; there are two small screws either side of the deployment and was wondering if you remove one or both to remove it? I don’t have screwdrivers small enough so thought I’d ask advice beforehand.

Thanks Image

You are quite correct - the strap is a standard size.

I'd suggest you may need to move both screws, as they join in the centre. You really don’t need specialist watchmakers screwdrivers, and a jewellers screwdriver set is quite inexpensive to buy at a hardware store.

Really appreciate your help.

I’ll give it a go, and look out for a suitable driver set but Bergeon might be out of reach for this purpose

Will keep you posted,
Many thanks

Hi

You were spot on, used two 1mm drivers and both screws (male/ female)came apart and OE rubber straps fit perfect albeit an additional keeper would be better

Thanks again for your input Image
