Default M16 Helmet Si66

Hello,

Here's a nice M16 Si66 helmet I acquired recently. Believe it or not, it's my first keeper, non-camo helmet for my collection.

It came as shown, complete with everything except for the little white tie string for the liner which is missing, unfortunately.

Best Regards,

Alan

Nice helmet, Alan. Careful, though, can become addictive.

Excellent first M16 feldgrau Alan. Would love to see a couple shots of this helmet outside in natural light.

Congrats.

Thanks for your very nice comments gentlemen, I appreciate it!

Yes, this is my first "Keeper" Non-Camo M16 Helmet. I have 6-Camo Helmets, and believe all but my newest one have been posted here.

Yes, I can easily understand how they can be Bob, thanks!

Will try to do sometime the last week of July on a day off, when I'm back on 12-hour days for work. Right now I end up sleeping during the good daytime sunlight outdoors. Thanks Chuck!

Hopefully yes, Jerry. Right now I believe that's my scheduled 3-day weekend off work.

Best Regards,

Alan

Great find Alan, the lack of drawstring does not bother me at all, it is for sure a keeper.

Will miss you guy's at the next Minneapolis show, for some reason they always schedule it over opening of Duck Season, and well I cannot miss that.

Best

James
