Here's something that was homemade. Guys on our team were pretty skillful/artsy-crafty. One guy sewed harnesses, another guy is a jeweler and used to make his own sites & trigger shoes, and another guy used to make masks.

I think this one is from about 88 or 89. We'd provide him with the goggles and he'd form the wire screen around it and use hot glue & rivets to mate the parts together. I believe he'd buy the tiger stripe netting from I&I Sports.

Guys using this designer's masks ended up on the cover of multiple APG's, full page ads for Jim Lively Productions, etc.

Very clean IMHO for the times. I put a modern mask in the pictures for a modern historical reference.
