    Hi all
    Here's my latest acquisition... I believe it to be a Korean war era M1... it's a rear seam swivel bale with a 51/52 Westinghouse CAPAC liner,with green webbing (nape strap is missing and suspension is cut) and a replacement 70's sweatband, liner has several thick coats of paint with sand texture added , liner strap in brown leather with a black buckle, chin straps are WW II khaki bar stitched type with brass hardware (with nice patina), it came with a late WW II USMC repro helmet cover...but under this I discovered a non stainless rim repainted shell with a nice hand painted 2ND Rangers lozenge insignia!!
    heat stamp is I think 1246 F (lots of paint have made it very hard to read!!)
    your thoughts please!!

    yes a little research on the originals shows the fabric to be a very good reproduction!!! ....and apart from being a bit too new looking, its also a pity the stitching is so bad(its hidden at the back for display!!)!!! I'm sorry mate I have no idea on the buckle what I'm looking for ...... do you mean the quick detach bar .. this doesn't have one!???
