    Default AK & WH dust goggles

    I've been looking to get a pair of the universal celluloid dust goggles to mount on my AK pith helmet and there seems to be no shortage of them on ebay. Now I know ebay is generally to be avoided becuase of the amount of fakes but i wonder if anybody is going to the bother of faking these? Many of the sellers claim to have found them in surplus stores which sounds reasonable to me.

    Here is a couple of shots of a pair available for $15 that I might get, its not the biggest investment in the world but i'd still rather a genuine pair over a copy.

    Hi Glenn, these are plentyfull.
    However copys are starting to appear in force. From what i have learned on these, the trick is in the stitches between the lens.
    All i can say from these photos, they appear good but nothing more.

    Cheers
    Nuno

    They're fine Glenn. Check out ebay as well, here's a set going for pennies that finish in a couple of hours, and there's links to others that are cheap too.

    Thank you gentlemen!

    Nuno, what is it about the stitching that needs to be looked at?

    This may help mate, Jerry B is a mod there and there's a good pic of his dust goggles on it, plus loads of other different sorts.
