Just acquired an S-10 Respirator (needs the lenses converting to airsoft friendly lenses), but my SAS-style loadout is coming along now!  ^_^

you'll want to put some venting in it, S10s are horrid sweaty things even stationary, let alone running about! :D

Indeed, rip the insides out of the canister and take out the non return valve from the other side too, they're horrid bits of kit and I'm glad they're being replaced (even if I did have to shave off my beard to get fitted for the GSR).

Weeeeeellllllllll... S10's are sweaty bastards certainly, but let's have it right, the way that the air circulates inside them with each breath, as it is designed to, stops the lenses from fogging much / at all. Who knows if that will still work properly if you mess with it?

 

I haven't got around to it yet, but I definitely intend to take the innards out of a filter for mine sometime. Breathing through a proper filter takes some practice when you're running about - deep and steady gets you more oxygen than trying to gasp.

 

I had a look for my receipt for ballistic replacement lenses, so i could pass on the seller to you, but unfortunately it's another victim of early onset dementia, otherwise known as i couldn't fcuking remember where i've left my arse if i didn't have to wipe it periodically...

what is wrong with the std lenses on the S10? We wear them firing real guns so surely they are decent protection still?

I'm sure nobody ever told u that the S10 would protect u from bullets tho, right?

 

The lenses aren't rated for ballistic protection. Once you get them out of the rubber you can feel it - a good thwack would crack/shatter 'em.

"blueangelical" rings a bell, but i can't find him on eBay now.

 

He's on instructibles though.

haha, I wasn't suggesting they would stop a 5.56mm round.... I doubt shooting glasses would either tho. But we don't fire real ammunition at them in airsoft.

Not meaning to be argumentative btw, was just curiosity as to why they wern't suitable for airsoft :-)

I dunno, all the S10 needed to do in it's real function was be gas tight, no point having expensive ballistic lenses if one break in your suit or the rubber area of the mask is going to kill you anyway!

not another person thinking they're bulletproof...

 

Many moons ago, there was a member on this forum and a few others, who was convinced that the standard lenses in his mask (a pre-S10 variant) were bullet proof. 
He got into a bit of a slanging match with various members here (and on the other places) about the topic. He based his entire argument on one fact - "The SAS use(-d) them, so they must be bullet proof".   :rolleyes:

 

I'm pretty miffed, I had the chance to buy an S10 on Saturday for £10, but it was sold just as I returned to the stall with my cash.

 

 

Just picked up 3 more mags for my P229, taking the total to 12. I now carry more ammo for my sidearm than my rifle...

:lol: I'll bet your loadout looks uber though, right?

 

Just to add, I've invited blueangelical to stop by here in person, so you never know, all our replacement ballistic lens needs may be sorted easily. He has just told me he can do custom size requests too, so I'm planning to get one for my C8 torch and my Soviet gas mask too, in the fullness of time.

It's a shame my FBI overt/covert-styled vest only has 5 mag pouches... 
The rest all get stuffed in my suit jacket & trouser pockets  :lol:

I had to give mine back when I left the RN back in May 

I'm pretty miffed, I had the chance to buy an S10 on Saturday for £10, but it was sold just as I returned to the stall with my cash.
