  • Hey there Evelyn! I figured I should ask you about something that's been troubling me with my brand new Gas Mask. It's a M65 Drager, however it's accompanied by a [ MS-4-172 / 92 P2 F ] Filter. It's definitely GOST, It's probably adjustable to the M65, however. Do you think it'd be safe to use?

    • I don't know for sure, but my personal preference is to avoid the use of bloc-manufactured GOST filters. Enough of the filters are known to contain asbestos, and they weren't exactly known for their safety record.

    • I messaged the guy on Ebay that I bought 'em from. He said they are functional and asbestos free. I guess it'd be wise not to risk.

  • Going in circles trying to find out how ever these filters for the russian PBF contain Asbestos or not, so far i havnt been able to get a conclusive answer anywhere. Hoping you know.

  • Hey there! I've looked around for info pertaining to my M17A2 and its M6A2 chemical hood and I have stumbled upon this wiki. I've noticed that many others come to you for help with questions, so I suppose I'll ask.

    My M17A2 is quite old (as expected because of the period of service from '59- about '94) and actually use to belong to my father. He told me that he picked it up at a surplus store in the early 2000s for about 10 dollars. The mask itself has been worn a few times by both him and I, but the chemical hood has never come out of its paper envelope (kind of like an envelope at least). Upon pulling the chemical hood out of its package, I noticed it had a thin layer of powder akin to dust all over it. I recall reading somewhere that the hoods are packed with a powder of sorts to help keep its quality up during years of prolonged storage (my mask in particular is dated back to February 1987 as listed by the paper envelope containing the chemical hood), but I'm not sure entirely. What would you say I do? Would I be wise to wash my chemical hood off, or is it best left alone?

    I know this is kind of a stupid question, but I can't find answers anywhere. :P

    • Should just be rubber preservative. It's worth cleaning off for the sake of appearance, but other than being slightly unhealthy to breathe in, you shouldn't be overly concerned.

      (We get asked about talc a *lot*. We should probably put something together about it, really)

    • Alright, thanks for the help! I will definitely go do that. Putting up a page on talc would be a good idea too, lol.

      Nice mask collection by the way. You even listed your girlfriend's collection too! I've noticed there are a lot of collectors here on this wiki. I'm thinking about collecting more masks down the road once my sitution in life improves.

    • Ah ok and you're welcome. Just happened across that from Googling the filter on mine. I just didn't know anything this morning, completely ignorant and oblivious but that's how you learn I suppose but good to know the risks. Also good to know there's people about in the know so useful to network for advice.

      I'll clean mine tomorrow. It's bagged in my shed at the moment as wasn't sure what else to do with it for safety until I'd got things queried.

      Thanks again SubarrowEvelyn

    • As you say mine could be a clone of that GP-5 canister so I'll pitch the filter and thoroughly clean the mask for safety and keep it. I have noticed my filter has a cap on the bottom to stop the airflow and the filter itself appears intact and charcoal free, so I'll box clever and be safe.

  • Hello , I have one question , can I use S10 hood with FM-12 gas mask? And what about lens for FM-12 ?

      Loading editor
    • The S10 hood doesn't even fit the S10 well, so I'd advise against that.

      Looking on ebay, I can see some FM/CT-12 outserts for sale, similar to those available for the S10. Just remember that the lenses and frames are different sizes, so the outserts won't be interchangeable.
