Item #110: M16-M18 Helmet air-vents: If you own an M16 or M18 that is missing one or both of these air-vents, then here is the long-awaited solution to your problem. These are specially machined to the exact specifications as originals. I had these made in two different sizes. Size A has the step-down ring to fit a size 64 helmet. Size B will fit either the 66 or 68 shell size. (the vent sizes are the same for both 66 and 68 shell sizes...see the FAQ page for explanation of the purpose of this step-down)  These are sold in a set of two and are complete with the proper inside washer. Installation is simple. Stick the air-vent (small side first) through the hole in your vent-less helmet. Slip the washer over the stud on the inside of the helmet shell and peen it with a hammer. (Please specify helmet size when ordering) Price $25.00 per set

                Size 64 AVAILABLE                    SIZE 66 AVAILABLE

 

 

Item #111: M16 helmet Helmet M91 chinstrap posts:   Often times helmets are found with the chinstrap posts removed for whatever reason (the Bulgarians reworked a lot of M16 helmets and removed the M91 posts). This is a set of hardware that is easily installed onto a helmet to complete it and allow one to use the original type strap. The set includes two machined 14mm wide Posts with the "arrow" protrusion, two 14mm wide thick spacers and two steel rivets. Simply line up the pieces through the hole in the helmet, slip the rivet through the holes and peen it over with a regular hammer. The rivet is slightly more narrow than the holes but will expand upon peening and the finished chinstrap post will be as sturdy as originals. I have done this many times with this hardware that I had specially made in Europe. Now I am offering this kit for others who may want to complete their "post-less' helmets. price per set (both chinstrap lugs); $25.00   AVAILABLE
