M38 German Paratrooper Helmet Zinc Liner Band Welded - New Condition
We consider this to be the worlds best M38 Paratrooper Helmet zinc liner band, made in Europe from the original specification and original bands.
- Restoring relic or replica helmets.
- Comparing to original liner bands - replica identification.
- Replacing cheap flimsy copies on reenacting helmets.
- Helps to 'finish' a display helmet without liner.
It is made from zinc and is 0.8mm thick and 25mm deep. It is stamped with the shell size and is welded at the front.
The two front tabs are 30mm wide and the rear is 100mm wide. The rubber/leather attachment holes are 3mm in diameter. The top has a curved bevelled edge, which unlike other replicas allows the liner to fit very tightly into the helmet shell just like the originals.
It will fit genuine M38 shells, and WarHats replica shells. It may fit others, either 'as is' or with modifications (drilling or filing the bolt holes so it sits deeper in the helmet), but we cannot guarantee this. Liner bands can only be return in undamaged condition!
Fitting is straightforward. Gently bend the liner to the helmet shape from the attachment with the size marking support. Bend in the two front support tabs to allow them to clear the shell bolt holes and slide into place. This is supposed to be a tight fit so you may have to press firmly and insert one bolt at a time to retain it in position.
