they're a bit of a pain but they will fit OK with a bit of adjusting the only problem Ive found is that the liner slips out very easily because of the netting !
no i never checked mate just lined up the holes that were ready made for the chin strap & bunched the net up inside.
nick ,the cover looks great fitted to your m1 ,a nice tight fit ,do they all have the elasticated foliage band around the circumferance also were these maker stamped in any way
the band that's on these aren't elasticated just HBT fabric as with the other type of USMC cover these aren't marked up in anyway either if you would be interested in one Ive got a spare one just let me know.
many thanks nick ,i dont know a lot about these covers ,but i now know a little more ,did this 3rd type have a long service history maybe used in korean war ? oh and many thanks for the offer on the spare one ,i wasnt expecting that cheers james
these can be found still in use during the Vietnam war so you can use them on a display from either WW2, Korea or NAM
