As the tittle says, where do you buy them now? Just curious for more shopping references.

Only use original shells, the repros suck.

I prefer to keep original in their original state unless they have already been poorly restored, then I might work on them. I want something I don't care if it gets dinged or stolen.

Limited sizes, but everything from the M16/17 to the M38/35/42.

EDIT: in hindsight, given the ahagreat sizes and the ATF sizes, they appear to be pretty much the same (like the FJ helmet being a 71/59 shell/liner).

Before the chinese earthquake, not sure if it was 2008 or 2010. M35 stahlhelms that came from china were the best copies going, as on a previous thread, it is believed that these originated from Russia have been stored after the war. "Experts" who have seen my M35 said they were either a very clever copy or original. There were no markings inside anywhere. The Chinese supplier i was using had his stock removed by the military as they had no metal helmets for the search and rescue operation. The stalhelms were not returned. While originals are best, i would not use one for re enactment cos once they are damaged thats the value gone. This like all other comments are my own, but i do not see the point in devaluing an original just to 'look good' after all the MOPS wont know the difference anyway.

Agreed. Thanks for the links, but looking for European suppliers.
