    Hope I do not incur the wrath of some of our members for posting this but I thought the giggle factor was worth it - some may think I am being cavalier but I have a love of the absurd, that's all.

    Neville-the-less, here is an example of what is coming out of the sub-continent at the moment - accurate representations, no?
    NO....... of course I jest, the 'Ancient Craft Store' ( or Ancient Crap Store ) missed the mark with these ones.

    So for the new collector - this is NOT what a M16 or an M40 / M42 ( I don't know what it is trying to be? ) looks like!
    Or to quote a wise man, " These aren't the droids you're looking for "

    Hello Dan,
    Very good, I cant help thinking that the top example looks suspiciously like an inverted bedpan!
    Cheers,

    They look like helmets with platypus bills.

    I am glad the fakers have made such glareing mistakes in their stamping dies.
    Unfortunattely there will be those that buy these things thinking that they are real.
