    Hi all
    ok so finally got my Composite finds from this year all together!!
    mostly Iraqi M80 or South Korean M76.. one M90
    and my PASGT test helmet!!

    so from right to left..

    M76.. this one is in unissued condition... and the paint colour is an unusual olive buff not the usual SK green with Iraqi sand colour paint added!!??!!?? and I added the M80/03 cover that I picked up loose at this years W&Pr show...

    Next is a SK green M76... possible Iraqi.. unissued....and annoyingly has no markings!!

    Then discounting the PASGT for now... a salty relic M80 with Iraqi army marking to the headband... it has painted black round blobs on all four sides,,, and bright green "writing"(unfortunately long since worn and faded!!) to the rear...

    And finally on the Iraqi front... My M90 .. exhibiting the "OIL" residue splatter pattern.... as many of the others members M90 examples on here also show!!

    Lastly we have my PASGT test helmet..."TEST" as in it has been subjected to all manner of small arms fire!!! and each "hit" has beed added with permanent marker details with the bullet size/weight and cartridge load!!... ranging from 5.56 (straight through penetration through the crown of the helmet!!!) to .44 magnum!!!!! (no penetration.... but massive deformation inside encroaching well within the safety zone inside!!!!!) and most common calibres in-between!!!! many bullet fragments are still lodged in the layers of the Kevlar!!!! I added a nice worn USMC woodland cover....

    'didn't really smash the Compo market this year but this one made me smile......

    Lithuanian BK-3 by SB. Said to have been used by Lith SF folk in Afghan. The visor attachment could be described as "agricultural" at best and is possibly a post-combat addition...I doubt camm'd-up specialists would be happy with a chrome topped reflective perspex visor in the heat of conflict. But I liked the paint job........

    'nice piece. The inside suggests limited use (or used by a particularly clean and tidy chap!) but I'm assuming it was used or made ready for use in the Gulf...sadly stock numbers aren't my bag but it must be date-able from there somewhere. And it's really good to have all the internal gumph (that's military technical speak! ;-) ).

    'really nice set.

    Love the camo finish on that one Composite and see what you mean about the visor ,the bolts look quite crude but functional , thanks for sharing
