Z-B-R2-V and "TF-1" filter

As far as I aware, the Z-B-R2-V filter has been used since MF-11 been made. In regards to it, I might have a bit information on it after browsing some online merchant sites like Shopee, Lazada, and AliExpress. I also got some information from dodgy websites too. So, should I make a page on this filter? If so, it'll might take me a while to do so.


Also, on regards on the "TF-1" filter on the hand, there's two sizes of them, of which they are available in "normal" and coffee can style (and the coffee can style is the most common size of it). I punctured one a while ago and there's no asbestos to it. Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo of it. So, once again, if I have enough info on it, which might take a few months more thanks to my inabil…

Common ways of modifying masks



For some, modifying masks is a hobby. It can be done for many reasons, either as art, for cosplay purpouses, or simply for fun. This is especially popular in Eastern Europe, as masks are in abundance there. There is a lot of controversy around this subject, as sometimes, the masks in question are damaged irreparably, and this is unacceptable to most collectors in cases of rare or uncommon masks. These modified masks may sometimes confuse collectors, so lets take a look at some of the most common ways


This is especially popular in eastern europe, due to how masks were standartized there, a common example is taking the I/O assembly from a GP5 mask, and putting in an assembly from a GP4 mask, this is most often done for fun, or to be sold as a…

New rules and updates

Hi everyone,

As you may have noticed, Wikia have updated their policies on Blocks and as such, we have had to update our local policy too.

Most of these changes to the policy are just us putting in writing our current practices and so you're unlikely to see much of a change on how we run our Wiki.

Effective immediately, we have made the following changes to our block policy:

  • Anonymous users may be subject to an immediate block if they break any of our rules
  • Registered users will receive up to two warnings before being blocked (still at the Administrator's discretion)
  • Updated block escalations - first time, 1 week; second time, 2 weeks; third time 1 month; fourth time, 1 year. Depending on how severe the infraction was, we may choose to impose a …

S10 mask designations

Recently i've uncovered the designations for the S10's facepieces themselves, which are the L2A1 and L3A1 the difference between the 2 rests in the lenses, the L2A1 is the normal S10 lenses and also the most common, which is where they sit flush with the rim on the outer side while the L3A1 doesnt as to allow for optical correction inserts to be used.

And a quick fun fact: the drinking cap is called the L9A1

Yes im going to add this to the wiki soon with better photos.

Military Protective Masks Come to the Rescue

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7409952/

Tracheotomy is frequently indicated for patients with COVID-19 suffering from severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). The French Army Biomedical Research Centre provided our hospital with military masks equipped with P3 filter cartridges and an integrated ventilation unit that would allow safe performance of this procedure when faced with a high risk of virus transmission (Figure 1). FFP2 or FFP3 masks can provide proper protection, as these masks have an efficiency of 95%–99% when tested with 0.30 µm particles. However, their efficacy for SARS-CoV-2 protection has not been explored, and the virus has a smaller calibre (0.1–0.15 µm).1 An additional concern is the potential risk of prog…

Rare Class B Goodyear MIAI-I-I with E41 R81 mold


As you can see this Class B Goodyear mask uses a quite interesting E41 R81 mold. Which up until now seemed only to have been made out of black rubber. This face piece is dated 11-40. which was the last month before they switched to the newer E41 R85 mold making this possibly one of the last Goodyear training masks that used this mold.

Is this filter safe?

Hi all, i recently purchased a Pmg Gas Mask and a filter to go with it. However I am unsure about the safety of the filter and if it contains asbestos. I am unsure if it is a Gp-5 filter as it does not show any of the markings. I did use for about 5 minutes though I think I should be safe. Thanks in advance.

Is this an ShM-41M or something else?

I’ve got an SchM-41M but I’m not sure if it’s an exported ShM-41M or some other mask like an Czech M60. I’m bringing this up because the mask I’m showing here has unusual markings on it for an Soviet mask. For one there is no date stamp molded into the rubber of the mask instead it’s been stamped on the inner hood for what I can tell. Though it does still have stamps in Cyrillic on the mask. This is very confusing. I will try to provide pictures.

Drager M65

Yeah, I'm one of those folks who got a gas mask because of COVID19. But I had a couple of masks when I was a kid; US civil defense child's mask (second version) and an M17. Anyway, there is a guy on the 'bay selling M65's with the carry cannister and destructions. Mine dates from '73 and is in excellent condition. The fellow thru in a GP5 which was not part of the posting. I texted him and said he needed to reconsider tossing in freebie filters due to the well-document hazards others have discussed ad nauseum. I also ordered one of the Italian brown filters with the 40mm neck (comes in a can). Totally non-related...but here is a photo of my nephew working the Graniteville rail car chlorine accident where several folks died.

Info on MK221 MK212/1

Found an interesting comment about the MK-221 mask on the comment section on this video, a user called 'JejeX' claims to have received an email from Faser themselves.

According to Fasers email:

MK-221 was made from 1976 to 1983

MK-212/1 made from 1983 to 1998

MK -221/2 made from 1998 onwards

Faser themselves say the change from MK-221 to MK-212/1 was made because of a new technical standard called 'PN-78/Z-02006/01'.

I looked up the above technical standard and indeed it looks to be relating to respiratory protection.

However, there is a discrepancy.

This website claims to have an MK-221 made in 1975 which clearly goes against what Faser says.

Asbestos in British filters

Why does literally every article about British civilian masks on this wiki have that 'Crocidolite' warning, but none of the other asbestos containing gas masks do? What's up with the 'bLuE aSbEsToS iS 100 TiMeS MoRe DaNgErOuS' - whilst crocidolite asbestos is known to have finer fibres than white asbestos, all asbestos is more than capable of giving you lung cancer so saying one type is more dangerous than another is fairly redundant.

Making a PH hood

Decided to sew my own PH hood. Originals are a bit too much for me, and the 40E for a low quality replica is overpriced as hell. So why not sew my own, the design is simple enough I guess. Im making it out of a tan colored canvas like fabric, the holder of the flapper will be made out of a non drip plastic bottlecap, the flapper itself probably paper, or actual rubber if I manage to find some. Otherwise lenses are just some thin and cheap plastic out of a plastic fruit container, lens holder will be just for show, being only out of cardboard or some similiar low quality material. All im waiting for now is for someone to reply for my cries for the dimensions

Hungarian masks summary table

NOT COMPLETE! I write this post to give that information to people which I think don’t fit in the articles of individual masks but can be interesting to someone. This is not a too serious post but contains useful pieces of information and nearly all masks used in Hungary before 2000.

  • 1915: The first Hungarian masks were wet hoods. These were steeped with HaOH, NH4NO3 and used with a “lot” success against the phosgene attacks on the Italian front. Very rare mostly because these are canvas bags with glasses.
  • 1916: 1917M mask issued. Only masks with K. u. K. stamp can be 1917M otherwise it is an GM-15. Very rare.
  • 1917: GM-17 issued as 1917K, rare.
  • 1927: Probably Auer 747/G masks used in the industry. Rare.
  • 1928: 27M repaired 1917M masks with the sa…

DISCLAIMER: This article is not meant as a guide to make Russian masks CBRN rated, but a simple procedure to use NATO filters on GOST mask for simple DIY jobs. This tecnique puts stress on the thread, so it's not recommended for long time periods and/or rare masks.

How to SAFELY disassemble GP-5 filter

Now, before we begin, I absolutely do not recommend doing this, and take no responsibility for what you do with this guide, but if you're like me and don't listen, at least do it outside and wear a respirator. You'll thank me later.

Also, this doesn't work for "coffee can" type filters, they're built differently. If I open one of mine, I might make a post on how to disassemble it, but they are far more dangerous than the green civil filters. It's best to keep them sealed up for display only. Actually that goes for all filters, display only. I did this so I could have a safe filter for airsoft games/cosplay.


Materials needed:

Dremel tool/metal file

Container that a filter will fit in

someting that you can hit with a hammer that fits into the top…

Respirators with little information

Many respirators have either mild history or widely known history, but what angers me is lack of info or even a page of an item like the Polish SR-1.  Where there is some info, it just hasn't been compiled into a single source for many to view in a single space.  And it doesn't help when you're buying in the US and keepshooting.com has them listed as Czech Gas Masks.  When most of this info comes out it's understandably in Polish, but it gets blocked out by other headwound and casualty gas masks.
