German WWII M42 Steel Helmet- Stahlhelm 42 (Economy Grade)
New Made Item: We only refer to this fine helmet as economy grade because our other M42 helmet is of such a high quality and authenticity. However, this helmet is still a very nice reproduction German WW2 M1942 helmet.
Germany entered WWII with the M-35 helmet as standard issue (WW1 M-16 & M-18 helmets were also in use). In 1942, Due to wartime demands, the M-42 design was put into production because it was significantly quicker to manufacture. The rolled edge of the M-35 shell was eliminated, creating an unfinished edge along the rim. This edge flared out slightly, along the base of the skirt. The elimination of the rolled edge expedited the manufacturing process and reduced the amount of metal used in each helmet, without sacrificing protection.
Let us explain precisely why it is the very best M42 reproduction helmet available on the market today:
The shell is constructed of thick steel, close to the same thickness used by the Germans in WWII. This means our helmet is heavy and as solid. The shell is large (size 68) and has the correct M1942 flared edge as well as proper pressed steel ventilation holes.
The liner is comprised of tan genuine leather with correct eight-finger configuration with central drawstring and an M1931 aluminum liner and all leather chin strap. Liner size can accommodate head sizes 7 (56cm) up to 7 5/8 (61cm).
This is a very nice helmet and for the money is the best deal available anywhere. However, if you want the very best see our other M42 replica helmet (item code AGG1942).
