USMC Style Shooting Jackets made by Mary

Each jacket that I make is done one at a time, not in some factory that is who knows where.  I make them as your payment is received. 


Current turn around is less that 2 weeks  from when your payment is received, although this is a general estimate.  Order times do vary, and Mary can give you a much better one when you do place your order.


If you have some custom things that you want done, just ask.

My email is on the contact page and here:


I now have a FaceBook page that you can go and "Like" and keep up to date:

  • Overstocked Jackets
    Mary has a few jackets that were made, or started, for customers that never paid.  Our loss is some lucky persons gain!  A few of them do not have the sleeves yet, so they can be cut for your length (noted by "custom sleeve").  If one of the other ones needs the sleeves made longer for you, she will do that, but not shorter. If you send Mary your measurements she can tell you if the jacket would be an ok fit.  However, she will not alter the jacket length or size.

    All sold out!!  Thank you.

    Jackets are $75 each including shipping.  Contact Mary for details:

  • Ordering Updated
    I have updated the Ordering page with how to make your measurements to send in to Mary.  There seems to be a lot of confusion on how best to do it, so I show you with pictures. ~Mark

  • Updated Order Times
    If you were waiting for the order completion times to go down, or were thinking about placing an order, now would be an excellent time.  Mary has caught up on the orders she had, so the times have now come down accordingly.  Heck, she can probably get that jacket out the day after you have paid!!  Ok, maybe not that fast, but very fast.  ~Mark

  • Wounded Warrior Project Donations
    Sad to find this out.  We had been donating a portion of each jacket sold to Wounded Warrior Project.  It has come to our attention that they do not like or accept any donations from anywhere dealing with guns (instructors, ranges, etc...).  I am guessing that we fell through the cracks.. anyway, they are being removed from our donation list.  ~Mark

Isis, the cattle dog, loves that mom is working so hard on all these jackets.  She is so happy that mom is no longer working on the kitchen table, but a carved out space in another room.   She found she can get UP on this table and lay down just to be closer :D

Made by mcron has fantastic service - and their representatives (read - their owners) will actually call you back and do this little thing called communication. And good customer service.

 I love my new shooting jacket.  Jerry L.

"Like many Appleseeders I've been searching for a USMC type shooting jacket in my size for quite a while without any luck.  Then on the forum under Deals and Steals I saw where an Appleseeder's wife has undertaken making reproductions of these much sought after jackets.  Well, I jumped at the opportunity and contacted Mary.  She came back quickly and assured me that the OD color was really OD, as well as answering all my questions.  I sent my check and kept my fingers crossed.  

The day before Christmas my jacket arrived on time as promised.  I am delighted with what I received.  The fit is perfect, quality is great, and I can't tell the difference between an original, and what Mary made for me.  For those of you who are in the quandary of not being able to find one in your correct size and configuration (left or right handed), I heartily recommend Mary's products.  I chose OD as my personal preference, but she offers Khaki as well as different Cami patterns. 

I also like the idea of supporting someone who is in the Appleseed family who apparently shares my values.  Mary, thanks again for a great job!

Just got to use my new "Made by mcron" jacket earlier this week. In a word... it rocked! Was keeping 1" groups slung prone at 50 yards with my AR15. I swear, it had to be the jacket!
PS - as a martial arts guy, I LOVE the heavy duck cotton that the khaki comes in... most comfortable and extremely durable. - Clay Howell

The real deal... I am sure most of you remember the "Old Shooting Jackets we wore." I still do some shooting and had been looking for a shooting jacket. I found Mary on line and took a chance and ordered one from her. She has nailed these jackets every detail is there. Check her out and if you want one I highly recommend ordering it from her. She is easy to work with and her workmanship is second to none.   - Chris Montoya
