ENDS – ORIGINAL M91 KEYED, PAIR (SET): PERFECT TO RESTORE AN ORIGINAL CS FOR A SPIKED OR STEEL HELMET. IT IS INTERESTING TO NOTE THAT WHEN THE M16 HELMET WAS SENT TO THE FRONT THERE WAS NO CHINSTRAP SUPPLIED. THE GERMANS DECIDED TO SAVE MONEY AND TIME BY HAVING THE SOLDIERS MOVE THE CS FROM THEIR SPIKED HELMET OVER TO THEIR NEW STEEL HELMET WHICH MEANS THEY ENDED UP WITH A HUGE VARIETY OF MIXED HARDWARE CHINSTRAPS ON M16 HELMETS. ANYONE WHO COLLECTS M16 HELMETS KNOW HOW POORLY THIS IDEA WORKED. THE M91 POSTS VARIED IN SIZE SO YOU WILL FIND M16 HELMETS WITH THE CHINSTRAPS WIRED, POSTS FLATTENED WITH A HAMMER AND LOOPS ALSO SMASHED TO KEEP THEM IN PLACE. THEY EVENTUALLY WENT TO THE M18 BUCKLE CHINSTRAPS. WE HAVE AVAILABLE THE FOLLOWING PAIRS OF CHINSTRAP ENDS THAT WE HAD KEPT TO RESTORE CHINSTRAPS. THEY VARIED BY MANUFACTURER SO WE MATCHED UP WHAT WE HAD IN STOCK:

(A) NICKEL (SILVER){1}

(B) BRASS {3}

(C) STEEL {3}
