    That's nice. I have several of the bayonets CMP was selling (when will the 16 inchers be released?). I also have one nondescript old style helmet that I wear while holding my M1 watching Combat reruns.

    Two of those bayonets came From CMP.I've been known to drink beer and watch SPR,or Patton

    PS.the 16 in bayonet release date is a "big secret".

    I spoke to the man who makes the decision yesterday and the 16"ers are still a while out. Next up are the carbine bayos. IIRC he said either Aug or Oct.

    I already know I won't be able to afford a 16"er.

    I've got a helmet I bought as a kid when I used to "play war" in the backyard as a kid. It's a swivel bale/front seam but I'm not sure about the liner. I'll post some pics later to get your opinion of the liner's age.
