M40s are cool but they are expensive.
I love the old school gas mask.
I actually have a friend who wears his around.
Its quite creepy and its so funny, he just barges into your house wearing the damn thing hugging you.
^_^ I should get one off eBay..
My mum's fiance moved in his stuff the other day and today I found a WWII gasmask made in 1941 for military use. It is British, but I have no idea what make or model it is. I'll try to get pictures.
I've got a Finnish M-61 model.
Here I am wearing it!
I got it for $20 and it came with 2 filters. You have to buy a bag by itself. I got it at American Science and Surplus in Milwaukee.
S10 gas masks for the fucking win.
I bought a Gp-5 and it was a size smaller than my head. :(
Where can a man come across one of these so called 'gas masks' ??
Ones to have just for the sake of looking like a badass?
Military surplus stores, various online retailers.
Honestly, I've never been to a military surplus store that sold quality gas masks. Usually it's just the crappy, outdated GP-5. Not that I'm a "gas mask freak," or anything. I just bought one as part of an airsoft loadout. Don't judge my hobbies.
this is so gay
Anyway, more info on my one;
There is a circle on the left cheek with the following inside it: STR 3/41.
On the right cheek there is a rectangle that says: NORMAL.
Hey, I found out what it is called! It is a Service Respirator MK V.
Although I have no bag or filter.
Why Hello thar
I want one of those gasmasks they used in Call of Duty 4 (training and Ship mission)
Are they for sale and are they cheap?
Man i want one, now!
I don't think a single person who posted a picture of theirselves in this thread is over the age of 15
I'm 16 Hezzy
^ that looks quite heavy. I want one of the SAS type gas masks, they look quite interesting.
Eh, I only have too.
Some form of Soviet Civilian Mask:
And a US Army Field Mask, from I guess the Gulf War, It had sand and shit in the little filters so I had to remove them.
Is it a health hazard to use active-coal filter from 78/83?
Anyone know a good supplier of gas masks? I'm becoming a collector.. heh. I got a few from www.mainemilitary.com but unfortunately, my russian Gp-5 Doesn't go on because of the pain it causes due to my long hair, other than that I have a Basic Finnish and Israeli. By the way, when I got one of my masks, I think it was the israeli one, my filter has tiny tiny particles that you can breathe in, Asbestos?
A box of them? Chemical and Biological Warfare? Brand New? Did you get them after 9/11 or something?
