You probably will not find exactly what you are looking for, but 907 Surplus on Boniface in Anchorage has several real-deal helmets for sale. You could haggle something cool to a good price. Also, if I remember right they have a bin full of rhino mounts.

Helmets are a big gear item for many.

I myself have a chinese knockoff of the OPS Core FAST style helmet. It does the job to an extent. The NVG Shroud that came with it doesnt fit the standard Rhino mount so im in the process of upgrading to a Team Wendy Exfil helmet (once you get into night vision stuff and need gear that translates over to real steel shooting it starts to get spendy). This particular knockoff helmet has lasted me through several national ops and seen plenty of use so dont be too skeptical about quality. It all depends on what you plan to do with it really.

As for a Rhino Mount and J Arms (if you are running a PVS-14 or other monocular device), I second the thought of going to 907 Surplus. They have fantastic prices on all the US General Issue mounting devices, including single hole NVG shrouds.

I wasnt going to use NVGs at all... those were for possible gopro hero cameras being mounted on there.... as for the picanny rails on the helm... Another option to mount a contour action camera on the side... I already got a helm ordered through Airsoftfix.

Yes - we special ordered a helmet (an OD PJ-style helmet).

We had some other stuff on the order, but I have to see how the shipping breaks down against the cost of the helmet before we decide whether or not we will regularly carry them. The problem with helmets is if you put one in a box, you have about 80% empty air space, and they don't usually nest inside each other all that well (the PJ style ones anyway).

If it works out, we may have PJ-style helmets in a variety of patterns/colors for $75/ea. Not bad when GI/Evike want ~$65-$70 for theirs, but you'd have to pay shipping to order one from them (likely $20 or more for shipping due to the aforementioned volume issue).

How many people would be interested in helmets at AirsoftFix? If so, what color/pattern?

I'd probably be interested if you carried some black MICH 2000s.
