M1 Helmet Chinstrap - Paratrooper - Vietnam War - Reproduction
Reproduction postwar paratrooper helmet chinstrap. Crimp attachment is blackened steel. Buckle and endkeeper are olive drab painted steel. Webbing is a darker shade of olive drab (od7).
In my collection I have original examples of what I have built here. A mix of green and black hardware. I like the look of the crossover parts used.
For a time, we are able to make these with a mix of original and reproduction parts. The helmet crimp attachments, t1 ball/clasp and buckle are NOS original. Webbing, endkeeper, and dot snaps are reproduction.
These install easily with a good set of pliers. No sewing required!
