Does anyone know where I can get a list of Military Surplus (or non-surplus ) that is restricted for civilians to have? I'm a collector and I'm starting to find out that I am not supposed to have things like a Kevlar helmet, gas mask and post 94 mags. I want to know what else I'm not legally supposed to have. Thanks for any info....

Not that i want or need a kevlar helmet (but i am not a collector), there are at least 50-60 of these on ebay at any given time, are you sure they are restricted ?

I don't have a need for a Kevlar either but I've been told they were restricted. Kevlar's have to be de-militarized by removing all the straps and support assembly. My local surplus dealer won't touch them because he doesn't want to get busted. I was wondering if there was an official list of these restricted items.

In the Cheaper Than Dirt catalog I'm looking at right now: Original US military current helmet with Kevlar PASG1 protection system. Complete with suspension system and chin strap. Rare, hard to find in original military condition. OD Green, your choice of size $119.97 - 149.97

Never heard of Kevlar helmets being restricted. Though things like de-milled grenades are a no-no in certain states like Kalifornia (who didn't see that a mile down the road?).

Hmm, that gives me a funny idea. Does someone have the balls to submit a form 1 for a Thermonuclear "Desctructive Device" to the ATF? I'd love to see the reaction.

Pretty cool huh. You have already paid for the stuff once with your tax dollars and now you can't buy them again for any price..[BD] Thanks for reminding me..I got to send off my monthly check to Uncle Sugar as he didn't steal enough from me last year!
