M. 17 Camouflage

Post by Spiker » Wed May 01, 2013 3:01 am

M. 17 Camouflage
A nice variation of camouflage without the black dividing lines.
Hard to see on the pictures ,but the helmet has dark forest green ,brick red and ochre colors.
Chinstrap is missing but the fixtures are still in place,also with steel band to hold the pad holders . (M16 has a leather band)
It still has the soldier’s name in the neck.

Very nice and salty Ed... :thumb up:

The liner seems in very good shape too. Are the 3 cushion pads still in their pockets underneath?
Cheers!
