    Default M42 Beaded Luftshutz question

    Hello,
    I have attached some photos of my beaded M42 Luftshutz.
    I pick this up about once a year to move it ( outside of dusting of course)
    It seemed so much thicker and more substantial then other helmets I have handled lately ( I don't have a great deal of them on hand)
    Is there a reference available for helmet weights?
    It weighs 2 pounds 13 ounces.
    I weighed my m35 which has its liner and the weights are pretty close.
    I am probably just tricking myself on this one.Click image for larger version.

    Hi, it actually is an M40. Is it a Q shell? Quist helmets tend to be heavier than other manufacturers' helmets in my experience. Yours is a very representative piece. I love the toning of the LS wing. Best regards, Jim G.

    I tried to do just that about 3 years ago.....

    A helmet database and a request for help

    ... but like that lead balloon, it never flew ....

    Yes it is a Quist , the lotnumber with R prefix is unique for Q.

    A database which just adds weights/metal thickness seems irrelevant to me , we can clearly visually establish a helmet is good or bad.
    And I can tell you after having made a database with almost 2100 helmets with description that it takes a lot of time and effort (years)
    + who controls and checks the validity of the data if you let anybody do the input ?
    Letting different people with different skills adding to the data pool will only make it flawed.

    A good Quist Luftschutz shell, no issues that I can see, Leon.

    I may collect the past but I don't live there. ......... based on adverse opinions I moved on.

    Dan your brain will be pleased , believe me you didn't want to go there :-)
    On the other hand instead of making a huge database a sample of every model per maker would have merrit.
    That would be a process you can control.
