Greetings,

As the title states, I need a link or lead on anyone who makes an authentic AZW Overseas Service helmet. Since I have a huge noggin, and would need one made to fit. Looking to start my collection. Being in the States the options are the proverbial needle in a haystack. Thank you in advance!

So Pauli, you’re looking for a replica version of this?

BTW, I am in Washington State also, albeit on the Eastern side.

Your best bet for helmets that side of the pond is Stan Dolan who trades as the Regimental Quartermaster -here's a link to his website https://www.regimental-quartermaster.com/ he stocks Nat Sooy's conversion which are very well done - hope that helps

Got ahold of Stan at Regt QM. Now I'm in touch with Nat Sooy, and will be getting one! Next hill to climb is a Martini Henry.

I got my .450/.577” Martini-Henry Mk.II from IMA and am quite happy with it, given its age.

IMA is sold out of hand picked. Not sure I want to roll the dice with any old MK II. Correction it says in stock now. Weird.

Weird they are still showing the hand picked Mark 2 available on their website as of today - grab them while you can most are a bit dirty bores now as the real minty bore shooters went some time back - for a shooter look to the Mark IV's
