    Default M40 and M42

    Hello Everyone. I have finally found some helmets that I like and that I could afford! I am going to buy them from Germanhelmetsinc.com. First of all I was wondering if any of you have any experiences with the seller, is he credible? Also I am going to post their pictures because I would really appreciate your guy's input, I value any time or opinion you guys put into your comments. The first one I will post is the M40 Heer helmet, it has a painted over decal and I think a bullet hit the front of it. Thank you guys very much for the input ahead of time! have a great day/ night!

    A couple of good honest examples mate, great starter helmets. Ken N is one of the dealers I would put my faith in, he literally wrote the book on German lids. A very well known figure in the field.

    Agree completely, Ken Niewiarowicz is one of the best guys you can deal with.
    Having said that, and certainly nothing against Ken, you should always base your decisions on the helmet(s) in question and not a dealer's reputation.
    Just as you have done, it is a good idea to ask for opinions, especially if you are new to the hobby.
    The lids you have posted look ok to me as well, is the M40 coloured LW blue inside, with a green overpaint?

    Thank you everyone for your input. Brad, it looks like blue paint on the inside to me as well, but I do not have the helmets yet, great observation! I did not notice that.
