  1. Ah shoot I think I misread the post in the first place! Didn't realize you were talking about the one I posted being for sale! My bad. And thanks for the extra pics. Sent from my SM-J327V using Tapatalk
  2. Man, she looks to be in good shape too, hopefully someone that knows how to take care of it ended up getting it since you didn't get her. Sent from my SM-J327V using Tapatalk
  3. Seen one outside of a surplus store here, I believe it's got an M60 Rambo ammo chain over the chest etc, and an M16? Sent from my SM-J327V using Tapatalk
  4. I wont lie, that paint around the bails is a little suspect to me with how little rust bleed there is in it compared to the exterior repaint... The rust looks a bit new too, but that could just be explained by storage conditions. Sent from my SM-J327V using Tapatalk
  5. This hurts and confuses me about as much as this does... Sent from my SM-J327V using Tapatalk
  6. Any clue about what that triangle on the center one might be as well as the blue paint around the rims of both the helmets on the outside? Sent from my SM-J327V using Tapatalk
  7. I'm pretty sure its Spanish. The Spanish ones to my knowledge are actually rimless, in the same sense as the early british WW1 helmets. Liner is foreign as well. Sent from my SM-J327V using Tapatalk
  8. It's foreign. The metal on the bails should fold beneath the spot welded sections, not above. This and the "bill" of the helmet has way too much of a steep angle. Probably a German clone by the look of it. Sent from my SM-J327V using Tapatalk
  9. Bit of an older thread but I forgot to add a picture I found of the man. Still wondering about whether or not the pot is from his time on the Iowa or the Twining. Sent from my SM-J327V using Tapatalk
  10. Reminds me of those firing range instructor or who ever M1s that people talk about a lot on the forum, nice steel pot though. Sent from my SM-J327V using Tapatalk
  11. It boggles the mind that someone could see a helmet so rusted on white markings, showing at least age and use (being in the elements etc), yet a helmet that shows no paint loss along the rim (not a dead give away but I've got lots of steel pots that were even lightly used and if it had the stainless rim theres almost always paint gone) and think that's normal. Boggles the mind. Sent from my SM-J327V using Tapatalk
  12. Do you know if these belts were ever used as normal cartridge belts or were they just stored, the unfinished ones anyway. Sent from my SM-J327V using Tapatalk
  13. Yep, probably a nam era blousing band? Or did they use them earlier than nam? Sent from my SM-J327V using Tapatalk
  14. There's a pinned thread about it on the forum here. Sent from my SM-J327V using Tapatalk
  15. Having reenacted before and just wearing M1s for giggles sometimes, the sweatband in that position is FAR more comfortable than it's normal position. You get overall more support on your head too, I will say though you're unable to lean the helmet back like you see in a lot of photos, it sits far more straight, if not more downward so that the brim is close to the eyebrow level. But in general it is way more comfortable long term. Sent from my SM-J327V using Tapatalk
