  1. thank you sir! was the sleeve piping possibly used for some rescue purpose in an overboard situation,..or?
  2. Not sure what I have here and who (all ?) it would have been issued to. Im mostly curious about the piping that runs full length of the sleeves and why it was designed that way. Very heavy jacket.
  3. Good decision. The likely hood that you'll find another, is slim at the very best.
  4. The helmet in the top right hand corner of the photo montage belonged to (then) Lt. K W Johnson USNR. There were some other pieces listed from that collection as well that I missed out on, CS/FRP-1, sage green SV-1, etc.. Still trying to find some history on the helmet .
  5. no replies confirm my thoughts on this. Appears that the Navys use of leather edgeroll for the APH6 was limited to in house mods by either Protection or Sierra which clearly relied on stitched on rather than snap on material.
  6. Hey Group, I've installed several of these edge rolls from Sierra over the years and although they're listed on the install instruction sheet that it was designed for the Sierra "modified" APH-6 - (APH-6E ?), but I have never seen evidence of a snap on roll, on a US Navy helmet that was actually worn/used for flight ops. Evertything I've encountered has been Protection modified with a sewn on roll. Anyone here have any documentation or photos that would verify that this edge roll was in fact installed on US Navy helmet(s).
  7. Pm me your address and I'll send it to you for postage reimbursement.
  8. This info is for anyone who might not know, altho Im sure everyone on this thread probably do... Here are a couple of mods from push button locs to screw locks. Neither of the loc "T"s have been filed to fit on mine and they are too tight to be acceptable for use beyond where they are shown positioned in the photos. A couple of many projects, currently on the bench. ?
  9. quote ; I wonder if that would be easier than trying to locate another one of these! I've seen push button locs show up for sale from time to time, but very rarely. Some of these were 86'd (while still current) for the better designed, screw lock that's still on everything today. I've replaced a couple of damaged push locks with blue "Sierra Eng" screw locks from the 60s era, which I personally like better. True, not 100% "as issued" correct, but safe to say 100% valid era upgrade from..... One thing to note when installing a screw lock as a replacement on an
  10. I think this is what you need, but it's useless without the retainer spring to keep it all together and functioning. The spring attaches thru the hole (in the photo) and the other end, same into the hole in the bottom of the the "T" visor attachment part that you have. I've never tried to rethread the tiny spring for this but it looks like it would take a chap with s jewelers skill to make it happen. ?
  11. I think I have the detent but the spring will be the holy grail for the project. I'll check my stash. There are probably a million applications for tiny springs (that could be used) but coming across one is the tricky part.
  12. looks like the small spring and detent part are missing?
