Bergmutze found

Postby Lord Elpus » Tue Jan 03, 2017 5:18 pm

I think I've located a bergmutze, I'm told the peak measures 70mm from the buttons, is this about right? I have nothing to compare to, so if someone could measure theirs and post please, many thanks.

Without (properly) measuring mine, it sounds about the right length.

These lubstein ones are good:

eyeballing the picture, the peak looks about 70mm.

as long as the peak is shorter than a normal M43 cap you should be OK.
