Back in FR days, it was mostly flight gloves. Not always the sage ones, when the tan CWU was worn they often had the tan gloves too.
Outdoor Research makes stuff for the Marines, not only for FR.

I know a guy who has the Outdoor Research gloves, he just calls them 'FR' gloves.
He gave me a pic as well:
And I might take you up on that woodland MARPAT MICH cover as well, I might end up trading the Multi tool and an IR tab for a custom Condor MICH 2000.

Most of my pics turned out shitty... I tried some post-editing to hide it, lol.
I need better lightning in that damn appartement.
It's pretty much done. Gun config & paint scheme inspired by the Marjah pictures (but I did not replica the exact same thing).
Any suggestions or improvements?
(edit:`actually I'm waiting for the Docter mount which I should get today or maybe tomorrow, but that's it)
Lower is the same on both guns, only the upper changes.
As you can see I modded the fake IR filter of the M3X to instead serve as a red filter.

You've got exactly the reason I don't use Krylon. Their "Khaki" (tan) is way too whiteish and their brown is excessively dark.
Did it with an airbrush. Base color was a mix of Tamiya XF-72 "JSDF Brown" and XF-49 "Khaki" (gives a FDE-ish color), then random spot/lines with Modelmaster FS30117 "Military Brown" as well as some with Modelmaster FS31136 ""Insignia Red". I finished by attenuating the places were it was too red with the first mix.
Due to shitty lightning in my appartement it might not look exactly as it is, but quite close. I'll try to take some at the sand pit in Rawdon this weekend.
On a different note... I'm considering switching to FDE PMAGs as we see them more and more all around the services including MARSOC. what do you guys think?
(Keep in mind that I do my best to follow the current MARSOC trends (with maybe a few months delay based on the availability of the accessories).
WTS: King Arms/Madbull Mk18 Mod1 - VFC Mk17 SCAR-H midcap mags, FDE - VFC Mk17 SCAR-H + PWS rail, FDE
WTB/WTT: CSOR gear, BFG, Tyr, Crye, etc

And apparently they only use the PRR for training since those radios are not encrypted.
That's what has been said on GearSoc.

Well at least here's my belt rig. Received my belt pad and suspenders from Ferro Concepts. Top stuff, very well made. The materials and stitchings are rock solid. I highly recommand you contact him if you guys have some custom projects. He knows his stuff, I told him I wanted some suspenders and he came out with something that is perfect yet very simple. He added a loop of elastic on the upper back part of the Y which takes the sagging of the belt when fully loaded.
SO without further adieu here's the pic
BHI duty belt
SFLCS leg panel (until I can source a decently priced FSBE)
2x '04 FSBE mag pouches
2x '07 FSBE frag pouches
CSM FSBE dumper
'05 FSBE M60
Generous amount of guntape to secure the leg panel in place since it's made to be ran on a MOLLE belt (totally MFR fashion LOL)

I'm sure all sorts of stuff is wrong, but I like the look; I'm sure someone can tell me what's out of place (aside from the M14, it's just what I was using today) and what's needed for a more authentic look.

Hey guys, after creeping this thread for a little while I figured I should come out of the woodwork and start asking questions instead of wondering like an idiot.
So, I decided to do a MARSOC impression, or better yet an inspired loadout, if you will, till I'm not completely broke anymore. This is my current kitlist/plan. Also I am quite sure this will be strange, but its what I got for now and I would like opinions.
(Anything in red I don't have yet)
Camo: Tru-Spec WD Marpat
1st Line: Flyye right angle dropleg x1
Pantac twin single mag shingle x1
Pantac single pistol mag pouch x1
Pantac dump pouch
Pantac or Flyye single pistol mag pouch x3
Safriland 6004 for M1911
Flyye right angle belt - Where can I get that?
FSBE AAV(repro) - Is this okay? I guess it was replaced by the CIRAS and RRV?
Flyye Triple Shingle x2
Flyye Double M4 mag pouch x1
A bunch of very long zipties (being an electrical apprentice has perks)
All other pouches.
Ill use the pouch list from Yanno's previous post later.
Original SWAT Tan's till I figure out where to get issued boots (someone care to enlighten? )
Repro MICH 2000 (OD)
Issued WD Marpat Cover (Waiting on Conker )
WE M4 CQBR
WE 1911 MEU
I'm still building this and since money is tight, its going slow. Anything I'm missing? Also, opinions, ideas, flames, whatever, shoot. I would like to hear.
