Not surprised, you coulda bought half a dozen Coleman stoves for the same price. Heck, $600 is what our real stove at home cost.

that is retail list. while i'm sure there are some people that paid full retail i'm sure 3-400 is a realistic paid $. Brunton lists the brewfire for 160 and i paid 93. even at the store it's not more than 130 which isn't a sale price.

also the brunton is probably double the btu's of anything coleman has for sale.

So could have only gone with four Coleman stoves and a case of warm Coors. :-)

The burners on standard issue Coleman white gas stoves are 9,000 and 11,000 BTUs and the two on the Wind River Range were 15,000 each on white gas.

Oh, yeah, and you can still get parts for a Coleman 425A (the current classic 2-burner is a 425F I think) from 1948. I got a burner rebuild kit for my 425B from 1952, although the tanks are not available and so once they rust up they are toast. But the current tank works fine in the old stove.

I thought you were the one all about old iron!

Which is the FJC and which is the Cruiser? I'm going with FJC = Wind River, since both are one-and-done models.

Goes to show that all the flash and bling don't get 'er done. It's gonna be Coleman stoves, Hilux trucks and percolator coffee pots that are left when cockroaches and Twinkies are all that's left living on earth.

not true. you don't know if and what they will replace it with.

sure you can buy a new land cruiser but you can't buy an 80 series new anymore.

and the fjc has not been disc (yet)

you can't buy new from coleman old models of stoves

You can so still buy the model 425 stove from Coleman. They added a few bits of plastic for Bakelite, replaced the pump seal with rubber instead of leather and changed the way the lid locks down in the 1970s, but the fundamentals of the pump, generator and burner didn't change.

No question on the rest. If we were only so lucky to have Brunton and Toyota as stuck in the mud as Coleman. ;-) Heck, AFAIK they still make the 425 stove in Wichita for goodness sakes.

BTW, I noticed on their website just now that they list the burners at 6,500 and 7,500 BTU. :-/ I recall them being higher than that, but they might used to have been and they changed them to increase the burn times. Dunno

there is always partner steel stoves. Their site and where they are sold are really lacking info on them. People seem to love em tho...

Last month, I sold all 3 of my Coleman stoves and replaced them with 2 propane Brunton stoves. Got them on clearance at the Sports Authority for $35 each. They are awesome.

Good point, but they are a lot cheaper than the Brunton was. A 2-burner Partner is I think about $250 and a 4-burner about $325. That probably didn't help sales. Partner stoves are very common with outfitters and guides, no doubt about their reputation. I don't think much about them because of the need for propane. Had to once use white gas in an old truck (old F150) to get to a gas station and ever since I've liked the idea that I could burn it in an emergency (idle only in the 22R-E, but probably clean the combustion chambers like crazy) or use unleaded in my stove & lantern. I know it's not necessarily logical or even probably reasonable anymore, but funny how things that happen to you as a kid make such an impact.
