New WW2 M1

Recommended Posts

Greetings all

Here is a nice WW2 lid I picked up today. Not sure what I think about the lieutenant bar

and I have no other pics of it than what I've posted here, but Overall,

so far, I like it. That might change when I get it but I like it.

Its got odd looking paint on the outside. Almost cammo looking ?

Thank you Dean! I get the feeling that butter Bar is the work of a faker. But I dont know.

It just looks too fresh. But I like the rest of it. I'l post more pics when I get it in.

Strange Paint ???

Im wondering about the paint. I'l take some pics in the sunlight when it comes in... Anyone can throw a net

on a helmet. Anyone can paint a butterbar on the front. Looks too fresh to me.

But that paint overall... Has anyone seen one like it? it looks like Cammo ?

I would share your concerns. Camo looks very evenly and consistently knocked down to me from those pics. Is that paint on the strap?

JMO,

I'm not sure until I get it in. I'l get some pics in the sunlight  when it comes in.

Yes I noticed that spot that looks like paint on the strap. The liner webbing looks awfully clean as well.

I asked Scott (Bugme) to take a look at this and I thought the butter bar was fake. But scott said the cammo paint job is too.

I didnt spend too much so I dont feel to bad about it. I think the net is real? Hopefully lol and I like the liner.

I think its a not too expensive lesson learned. The net and the cammo paint is what sucked me in.

Rookie mistake. And it was on the cheap side to ! lol
