Polish M50 Helmet

Based on the SSh-40 helmet, the Polish M50 helmet is a steel service helmet worn by Polish troops in an attempt to ward off the devastating effects of enemy attacks. These authentic military surplus helmets are great for everything from display and reenactments.

As noted, each Polish M50 helmet offered by Keepshooting.com is an authentic Polish military surplus item. These steel helmets were once standard-issue service helmets and were originally designed for and issued to members of the Polish land forces, which is one of the four service branches that makes up the Siły Zbrojne Rzeczypospolitej Polskiej, or the armed forced of the Republic of Poland. Interestingly enough, these helmets were often reissued to members of the Iraqi armed forces prior to their development of the Iraqi M80 helmet. Today, they can even be found in limited use with the Afghan national army.

Despite the likelihood that each of these helmets was at one point issued, each remains in good condition and ready for display, reenactment or a range of other applications. As such, each helmet is in good working and cosmetic condition, though the steel shells do show some signs of wear and storage. Similarly, the liners are still serviceable, though worn.

The Polish M50 helmet features an outer shell with a steel construction and a years-old coat of olive drab paint that has remained intact throughout its long life. The original leather liner also remains intact and is mounted to the outer shell via a single crown screw. Understand that this helmet, originally manufactured in the mid-20th century, does not feature modern materials and technology. As such, the original six-point leather liner is crudely adjusted by way of a cotton drawstring that provides for an adjustable fit. Similarly the leather chinstrap remains and is also fully adjustable for a number of different configurations.

If the design of the Polish M50 helmet is familiar, you may be surprised to hear that the outer shell was based on that of the SSh-40, sold here at Keepshooting.com as the Russian M40 helmet.

It is time for the Polish M50 helmet to get handed down once more – this time to you. Pull the trigger on this opportunity to own a unique piece of Polish military history. Consider this helmet for:

- Collectors

- Reenactments

- Costumes

- Paintball

Solid Hard Steel
I just love the looks of this helmet, so the looks were very important for me getting this helm. Second the price, great for 15 bucks. Not exactly sure on the year I got, could be from 50's to late 70's. I think mine was 1975. Leather head liner very solid and has held up considering the age. Leather strap a bit worn. The steel is very solid, and there were a few scrapes here and there on the outside.

Mine did not have the eagle emblem. I was thinking about spraying it flat black but decided not to, matched well with the British cold weather vest and German flak vest.

Not an WZ-50, even better!
I got my Polish helmet and I was pleasantly surprised. I actually got a WZ-75 model helmet, which are actually harder to come by than WZ-50s. It was pretty dirty (Even had some dried mud inside it) and needed a good cleaning, and had some scuffing and scratches to the finish (which did include the eagle stencil), but overall Good plus condition, and you can't beat it for the price. Now, to find the proper net for it...

Great value
My helmet was in great condition and had the eagle on the front. Like others said it had several names inked into the liner. I believe the one I got is the model 67 also.
