    Hi i have a chance to buy a "Special Ops Ballistic Helmet" made by Protective Products Enterprises (http://www.body-armor.com). This is from their website... I can pick up the one in the photos for $75... Should I?!? (you guys know better than me! lol). It was owned by a private security contractor

    SPECIAL OPS BALLISTIC HELMET

    Based upon the US Army's MICH (Modular Integrated Communications Helmet) and ACH (Advanced Combat Helmet)
    It is designed as a lighter and more compact version of the PASGT helmet; with reduced ear coverage, no lip and reduced coverage at the back
    Allows for better vision and hearing, and also allows the wearer to shoot from the prone position
    High ballistic performance with low weight, using high-tenacity ballistic aramid fiber
    NIJ Threat Level IIIA protects against 9mm FMJ and 44 Magnum SJHP, in accordance with NIJ Standard 0101.04. (June 2001). It has a V50 of 610 m/s (2000 ft/s)
    Suspension consists of seven EVA foam pads, with webbing split chin strap and a 4 point chin strap harness, with a quick release buckle and an integrated nape pad
    Available in sizes X-Small through X-Large

    Others may feel differently than I, but I always try to pick up painted lids when they are in the $50-$85 range. Why? There are several reasons. The first being painted lids are being faked right now and the amount of faked helmets is only going to increase as time progresses. That being said, if you know where this one came from and can get some background information from the owner, you will have a provenanced piece. Secondly, I like painted lids. They display well along side other SF type equipment. Just my two cents worth.
