I picked this up off the bay the other day, at a great price. It has a little discoloring on the top, but other then that, it appears to have just been sitting. It shows no signs of having ever being fired up.

Based on condition and the cardboard insert, I believe you are correct!  Great score!

Enjoy your stove. Nothing like breaking a new one in.

Thanks guys. I’ve wanted one of these for a long time, the price was just never right. This was such a good price I couldn’t pass it up. And the condition was remarkable!

And trust me, bacon will most certainly be involved. 😁

im glad the instruction book locate with it. I’ve never used one of the gpa stoves like this before. Now, MSR backpacking stoves are a different story.

Be careful, they multiply like lanterns and take up a lot more space!  Best advice for a new stove owner is: Lever Up to Light, Down to Cook!

Oh, don’t I know. Of all my backpacking gear, I have more stoves then I do anything. Hahaha. My wife will tell you, one way or another, we will never go hungry!  I have cooked meals in the house using a backpacking stove during a storm, over hot coals camping, hot coals for dutch oven meals, over an open fire for chili’s and soups; I’ve used hot coals under a griddle; my smoker for delicious meats; my discada for almost anything except baking; twig stoves, et cetera.  Now, I can add Coleman stoves to that list hehehe 😉

A dry stove being fired up for the first time may be kind of tricky. You may need to lube the moving parts. Put some CF in the tank and start the stove up and throw bacon in the cast-iron skillet. Use the baconGrease to loosen any stuck  parts on the stove. You should be good to go after that.
Not looking for anything. I have too much already, my wife says.

JimL,
Earlier you posted that “Proper break-in of a suitcase stove involves bacon”. I am somewhat new to this game and want to make sure I follow the rules, so does this apply only to new stoves, or new-to-me stoves as well? 🙄
