From my research on these 'Mil-Shocks' they didn't seem very 'military'. I ended up coming to the conclusion that it was basically just a commercial outfit that did the custom modification and sold them at huge prices as a 'Mil-Shock'.

So whilst it sounded like an amazing special release that Casio made for the US Army (or something like it) it was in fact just a commercial operation making a few bucks.

Hence might as well just do the mod yourself.

Don't know for sure, but I remember reading about the "Mil-Shock" a few years ago and seeing that it had been given a NSN :think:
That would definately make it more 'official' than the conclusions that I reached after my research. Hmmm. My research was just 4 or 5 hours of googling and a few emails so I could easily be wrong.

NSN means very little, in practice. It means it can be ordered by NATO units, but doesn't mean that it ever has been.

My brother actually makes NSN's. He works for the Flushing shipyard, that makes NAVY ships. Every part used in these ships, how small they might be, have or get a NSN. As Tribe says, it actually means not much. I think even a barrel of Heineken or Grolsch beer have a NSN.

Cheers,
