My 1st ACH


Recommended Posts


I picked up this helmet cheap because it needed some work (pads, chin strap, repainted). Here is the outcome so far. I basically bought it to play with :D

Cool Matt.

I also have a couple of them for the end of my 'Time-Line' of US helmets. The first on the left is an early PASGT that has the green camo from the early years before almost all fighting is done in the desert of the Middle East. The middle one is a PASGT too with the later 'Desert Storm' cover.


The last one on the right is an Advanced Combat Helmet like yours with a more current pattern cover.


I collected these three because they had the 3rd Inf division symbol on the camo covers. I hope to find one of the WWI us helmets with the third Div painted on the front so that I could show the Third Div at the very start, and the very end of my small collection

Very nice Harlan! I just added some tan velcro patches as well so I can add an IR flag :)

OUTSTANDING, Matt!! Sorry I'm just now responding - I had to go back to the hospital again and it threw me off.

I'd love to find one of those LED lights so I could have one helmet that's completely 'loaded'. Looking forward to seeing yours finished one of these days.
