M38 German Paratrooper Helmet Liner New Condition Pre & Early War & M36/M37 Rebuilds
These are made to order - please read the details below!
These helmet liners were the very first version of M38 liners used during pre-war and into early WW2. They were also used on M36 and M37 rebuilds.
The schwammgummi (rubber pads), are the correct bright colour which did fade with age due to UV light exposure, these will also fade over the years!
The rubber is covered with 100% cotton cloth. 1 set consists of 1 so called spider with 7 sizing/cushion blocks. The padding and blocks are, just like originals, cut with a clicker press, so the cutting edge has a concave shape. The rubber has the right density and appearance. Once aged you cannot tell the difference between originals. We can make these in shell size 68 or 71. We recommend that you order a liner one or two sizes larger than the indicated size as these were made to exact sizes and therefore tight on most heads!
Shell size (Stahlhelm) 68 = Liner sizes (Kopfweite): 56, 57, 58
Shell size (Stahlhelm) 71 = Liner sizes (Kopfweite): 59, 60, 61
All specifications are taken from the original drawings, real wartime photographs from the Bundesarchiv and original liners. We started production from the ground up without using replica’s as samples, as we wanted to offer 100% accuracy.
These will fit Warhats M38 Shells and Genuine M38 shells - we cannot guarantee they will fit other replica M38 helmets!
The features are:
- The correct weight, strength and technical make up.
- The correct orange rubber padding.
- Leather made from tan lambskin.
- Stitched in Gruschwitz No. 10 thread
- Real cotton rubber reinforcement.
- Aluminium liner ring.
- Correct pre/early war markings - inside and outside.
- Choice of ET68 and ET71 versions of M38 liner.
