NBC gear - mask, filters, decon kit
I just unearthed these items moments ago from my storage space. I am offering there here before any other forum I belong to or eBay. All prices are "asking" and I am open to offers.
All prices include CONUS USPS shipping costs.
I can take photos of anything you want to see, but most of this stuff is pretty boring and mundane.
The star of the show...only selling because I just got a fresh case of 18 of these, and I want to get rid of the loose ones (I have more elsewhere, just need to get to them)....
A 40mm NATO-threaded (works with all modern US, British, Canadian, German, Soviet, etc. masks) Racal C7 filter, brand new in the sealed foil bag, known as "The Rolls-Royce of NBC Filters", the only filter outside of the Soviet military that can filter out Soviet proprietary chemical agents (like novichok) as well as providing less toxic inhalation of chemicals from the filter (even the US issue C2A1 filter can not compare). Extremely hard to find, never seen on eBay, almost impossible to locate outside of some very specialized military units. Asking $40.
Current issue Soviet infantry mask, brand new, unissued, can drink with US issue canteen caps (I will include one if you need it), includes Soviet steel drinking canteen, spare eye lenses, carrying bag, faceform, and sealed filter (note: at this time I don't know where the filter went, I would include either a US issue sealed filter or the Israeli one below if you want; I will keep searching for it). Asking $50.
US issue M258A1 skin decontamination kit, stored in temperature-controlled environment and all the packets are intact, not "boiling", and ready to go. I just noticed one corner of the lid has a crack. It affects the ability to seal the container but it holds in all of the contents. I can get you an M58 replacement container if you want. Asking $20.
Israeli military issue M81 NBC filter, modern, slim, not 1970s vintage junk like you see with the cheap Israeli simplex masks, 40mm NATO-threaded (works with all modern US, British, Canadian, German, Soviet, etc. masks), tested in 2006 with a US Army respirator flow test machine and it tested just as good as a C2A1 filter, otherwise it's been sealed and never used. Asking $15.

I'm very interested. Is this mask one size fits all or does it have a size. I am famililar with the US mask but I don't understand what the "faceform". What does it do?. What is the price for the whole package and will you throw in another filter? I would need the canteen and drinking adapter.

The mask is about equal to a US size medium to large. I have a large head (hat size 7 5/8 to 7 3/4) and my Army-issue size mask is a medium, but I prefer a large for comfort. The Soviet one fits me a little better than a medium, but is not as large as a US large.
The faceform is just to hold the shape of the mask while it is in storage. You may remember the white (older) and black (newer) ones that came with US M40 series masks.
Yes I can throw in a modern US issue C2A1 filter, new and sealed, as well as a drinking-capable canteen cap (replaces existing cap on US military issue canteens). The Soviet canteen is kind of lame, but it works. I don't know what happened to the Soviet filter that was in the bag with the mask, I have not found it yet.
I will also throw in some skin decontamination "extra special gifts" if you want the whole lot
Hmm I guess for everything here, plus another filter and canteen cap, I would ask $120...how does that sound? Saving a little money off the prices below, and account for shipping charges and the extra filter and canteen cap.
