  1. Would like to buy one someday, even got a semi auto Stoner in the works. Well done and thanks for the Military Illustrated article copy!
  2. Looks like the bartacks are holding the web assy together prior to riveting into liner. Perhaps they ran out of the 1pc brass eyelets so used the chinstrap bartacker to hold it together until the work station got more eyelets?
  3. Looks to me like the J hook strap was cut off another helmet, from the underside, some of the warp yarn cut in the process: Bartacks: My own Singer 269W is currently rigged as a 42-stitch bartacker, although you can change the micarta laminate drive disc, worm gear and some other internal parts to change the stitch pattern. I can adjust the stitch pattern length and the width with an Allen wrench. Its a pain to do so I just leave it set for about a 7/8" x 1/8" stitch for laying MOLLE PALS loops.

  6. My experience in Berlin was similar to Leigh's, I was a 5-0-Deuce stationed in city Feb 89-Dec 90, got the Army of Occupation Medal issued by unit supply the first week but couldn't wear it until in city 30 days., Then again when I reenlisted for Germany, and took Outside CONUS Leave to Berlin to visit inlaws, I got orders cut direct back to Berlin instead of going thru 21st Replacement in Frankfurt, Oct 92-June 94, CIF issue could be different according to post.
