The Israeli and current issue US military masks have the advantage o no having to remove the mask for a filter change.

I had the first one when I was in the Army and when I asked in Basic what happened if your filter had to be changed and you were still in a contaminated area. Drill Sgt said simply, "You're dead private" :lol:

I do like the Israeli mask.. The filters in the east German masks are a pain to install even if you're not in a dangerous situation.

That's not an East German mask, that is a genuine US military surplus M-17 gas mask.

Yep, the early version fo the M-40.

New version shave filter mounting points on either side for left or right handed shooters.

It is an East German/Czech M-10 Mask.. Similar to the M-17. I'm not familiar with the M-17, but the intake diaphragm assembly on the M-10 has a tiny plastic key holding it all together. It breaks easily, and makes the mask pretty much useless.

I have that one as well. It is 'cooler' looking than the Israeli one, and that bag comes in handy.

Then its a copy of the M-17. US military began using that style in 1959 or so.

Terrible design do to the filter placement and inability to change filters on the fly.

AH! One difference I see is that the EG one does not have a drinking tube.

Yup...it's a cheap copy. Literally..paid less than $20 for mine, but did the job during our whiteouts last year. Wouldn't bet my life on one in a chemical attack.

Those are good choices, however there is still a better solution to total dust protection....

Actually, I think I already built that...I just painted mine green. Anyone remember getting greeted by a green astronaut in '06? (We had First Open Gate Shift on Monday night.)

I love my drinking tube, I just wish it was a little longer. Works nicely with a power hitter as well. :oops: Oops, did I say power hitter? Uh, I meant to say.....umm...positive pressure ventilator. Yeah, thats it 8)
Excuse me Ma'am, your going to feel a small prick.
