    Default M40 Helmet: Your opinions?

    Hello everybody!


    I'm new in this forum but I would like your opinion about a M35 helmet.

    The shell looks good but maybe repainted?

    The liner is very weird! I never seen a liner like this before. Only one hole.. fake?

    Please give me your opinions about it!

    Thank you!

    The shell's original, but that's about it. Looks like an M40 from the pictures

    Yes looks like a M40 ,the liner is no good,I think the paint is not original also but not sure need some clear picture.

    Yes It's a M40! I corrected it in the title.
    I also think the paint is not original but maybe an old repainting.
    The seller tell me it was found in Ukraine. I knew the liner is not good, looks like a very cheap repro!
    Have you an idea of the correct price of an item like it? (forget the liner!)

    Thank you!

    I would pay 40$.but the problem with this you say the helmet is in Ukraine so you are going to pay 35$ for chipping so you are paying 75 $ too high.
    Just look around for a better deal or save your money for a few months to get a very nice helmet.
    I would pass on this.

    40$! I'm very surprised! In Europe, a good M40 reproduction costs 150-200$ and good original 700-3K$. So I thought an original shell...
    But you're certainly right! The seller asked me 140$ without shipping.

    Thank you for your answers!

    140$ that is crasy,save your money for 250 to 450 you can find something nice.

    Chris is correct. Save and buy a good one.

    The helmet shown is not worth the money asked.
    Recent crummy paint job, and the liner is completely wrong..........
