Our Type 1 M38 Paratrooper Helmet chinstrap buckles are factory made in Germany. These chinstrap buckles were the first version to be worn on the M38 Helmet early WW2. It is also known as the 'sliding gate' version buckle.
These are made from 2 part steel just like the originals and are the correct size and weight. They are 4 grams in weight and are approx. 26mm wide and 20mm tall. These are the buckles we use on all of our Type 1 M38 chinstraps.
All specifications are taken from the original drawings, real wartime photographs from the Bundesarchiv and original chinstraps. We started production from the ground up without using replica’s as samples, as we wanted to offer 100% accuracy.
The features are:
- The correct weight and strength.
- The correct zinc plating & nickel plating.
- Made from steel.
- The correct colour & finish.
- Will fit ET66, ET68, ET71 & ET73 chinstrap versions.
These are perfect if you want to restore an old M38 chinstrap or upgrade your replica M38 chinstrap.
