Hey all! I think I know the answer to this already but thought id see what you guys think! I am restoring a M16 model helmet to its proper WW1 config as originally I restored it as a transitional. Now I am not as well clued up on WW1 parts & repros seem hard to find! So to my point... I have just received a repro early model chinstrap with brass fittings but the ends are riveted which immediately raised concerns! Now I am not 100% sure but are they not all supposed to be hand stitched the chinstraps? Just hoping one of you can confirm this is junk like I suspect it to be so I can celebrate wasting more money and go buy a new one! Cheers! Sean.
