    Angry Need authenticity check on refurb M18 Cut-Out (SS decals)

    Hi, got this helmet today as a late x-mas present. The liner and the shell look original, as when I checked online; none of the repros look like mine. It looks original except for the fact that the bill is long, however long-billed version were issued to cavalry, right? Need an opinion ASAP

    The entire piece is comprised of repro parts. The shell is a well known fake, the rest is academic, but all are one look fake components. Send it back.

    I can't, bought it in a military shop. It could be an original M18 re-worked into a cut-hole, right?

    Hello Filip,

    I agree 100% with helmet2ids evaluation of this. This is a current repro, I have seen these popping up at gun shows for the lastyear or two.


    Take care,

    Putting this up on You tube is not going to make it authentic.

    I hope you are not out 25K on this one as that is the price of an Original one ;-)
    This one is at best a poor man's re-enactor helmet.

    LOL yeah Cj Campbell
