Hello all and a happy new year!
I have recently put together my first M1 C.
Nothing special, but I think it's a nice representation of the last M1 before Kevlar. I was hoping to put together a Nam era M1C. The shell is probably good for Nam. Its an INGERSOLL, heat stamp 'I-9456', but have not found the correct liner yet. I could however, create a great early 1980's airborne M1. The woodland cover is dated 1982 and so is the liner. The elastic band, I believe is a Nam era example, that has had the 'cats eyes' sewn on for further service in the 1970's/80's. All the chinstrap hardware is marked with a P. Not quite finished yet, will update with pics when complete. Thanks for looking.
P.S Is it normal for these liners to protrude out of the shell like that? I have not had this issue with any of my WWII or Nam era liners.
Thanks and kind regards,
