    Im sorry to ask the question again, but your post is a bit disturbing, why the continual query regarding the ballistic properties, are you considering using the helmet ,as you state " for personal use", as its been mentioned, no helmet is bullet proof, therefore i cant understand what difference the guage of metal would make, your asking for a repro and a cheap one at that, theres allsorts out there, even googling will give you numerous suppliers and the cheapest, if you intend to dress the helmet as a medics thats fine, but please forget about if its bullet proof, that road can lead to disaster

    As davejb says no helmet of that period was bullet proof, im sure the german helmat was made of mangenese steel harder than normal but still took a bullet; Even the modern helmet will take a 5.56 round but not a 7.62, they go through it like cutting cheese.
