This is possibly the best elaborated loadout (main character after all). And one of the reasons is because 1st line makes sense due to the use of pistol mag pouches.
If we take off our 2nd line (rest, want to play lighter or whatever) we still have a useful 1st line. Imagine a gunfire starts while taking a break: simply grab your MK23 from your holster, start running & shooting. You have 5 spare mags (4 on belt pouches, one on holster pouch) and a knife. 125 Bbs, enogh to be functional for a while (until you grab the rest of your gear, for example)
BHI Harness are a good way to carry lot of things with a well distributed weight (shoulder pads are wide). ALICE Pouchs allow you to carry 6 spare M4 mags. Buttpack has plenty space to carry 3 MRE, and as you don’t need to carry that many MREs, buttpack is big enough for BB bottle, spare batteries, etc
Great loadout for Greenside OPs, but I would complete it with a Blackhawk 3 days pack.
Rifle is easy to build, there are replicas of almost everything. Dummy DBAL (battery case) is made by D-Boys and AFAIK there’s not functional one, ’cause the one G&P mades isn’t same model as carried by Bruce. Aimpoint is made by G&P, with Z Mount been hard to find on stock this days, but you can purchase a King Arms mount. PVS-14 is made by many manufacturers as a 3x magnifier, AABB has a “functional” version for 200$. QD mount has no replica, and real ITT mount has a price of 150$ (and is ITAR restricted)
Next big problem are the knives. Police Utility can be purchased at Emerson’s website (250$). SOG Recondo (discontinued) is on eBay (120$ to 250$). The impossible one is the Kandahar: only 20 were made, and they all are probably on knife collector’s hands.
Throat mic can be made from Element/Emerson TCI Ptt and ACM Throat mic. Astro Saber radio can be found on eBay (yet expensive)
In summary: it’s a great loadout to based your on (very well designed), but a complicated reenactment project.
