Article about: Great helmets guys. As I've never handled one of these, is the padding removable? Doesn't seem to be... And what is it made of? I have an M1 with a similar chinstrap to the one used on these
Whoa really!!! I did struggle to find the the chin cup, but it was cheap $20 from a gun dealer in the US via Auction arms Gun Auctions & Guns For Sale at GunAuction.com 8 years ago
The helmet cost a whopping $30 and there where 2 at the time (should have bought the second) at an old second hand shop in the hills down here.
I passed one up about a month ago, they wanted $75 for it, it was in pretty rough shape but the padding was still in place. There is another one at a local shop that I need to go back and look at, I was in a hurry and didn't take the time to ask the price, was not what I was there for.
I also picked up a rusted shell, a couple years ago, had no idea what it was, and posted it on here for identification. I have since cleaned it up and am in the process of restoring it. Did find a chin strap for it as well. I'll post photos if I ever finish it, going to try my hand at aging it so I might end up starting over a few times.
