  2. yeh its called a colt scope but there seems to be some decent replicas but there also seems to be some terrible ones floating about the internet but the ones ive found have always been called 'carry handle scopes' rather than the former as I don't believe they are a exact replica, rather a similar outer appearance with red dot inside instead of the colt scopes reticle. I too was thinking of getting one but Ill keep em peeled until i find a decent one.
  3. Yeh vinyl is the way to go for sure, cheers for the recommendations

  5. Evening all. Recently spent a while creating a MK23 SOCOM Metal Gear Solid patch for my friend now that the hard work is done we are struggling to find out where to go to print. Basically we want a pvc style patch with Velcro on the back, If anyone has any recommendations send them over. Cheers
  6. Hell yes, playing like that is too much fun, I've been thinking about one for a while though with a gbbr akm. But i imagine you missing a key item... a shovel. Though i cant imagine the site owners will be happy to find you've dug a couple of mile long tunnel complex into their site.......or would they.... hmm🤔 And yeh i had the same problem but luckily i bought a tiger stripe shirt from eBay that looked legit, as opposed to some really strange colour and dull copies that are rather bad.So it was a case of matching a top to loads of different trousers, which is strange that there are more tiger stripe trousers available here than shirts that are available, than just a bit strange if you ask me .🤔 wonder who has been collecting them all....... but wish you luck on finding the top hope you keep me updated as it sounds really good and of course who doesn't wanna run a xm177e2 .
  7. My aim with this guide is to help other people either starting a Vietnam era loadout or help with a already existing loadout, I myself don't claim to be a expert in the war, so please give me some leeway if my facts are not 100% but I would like to share what I have learnt whilst making my loadout. I will try to help you decide what clothing, gear and weapons to choose for you loadout. US Army or USMC. You could in theory have a loadout for less that £60 without a gun. Whilst Tiger Stripe (which I'll cover in a future guide on ARVN and US Special forces) and ERDL are more expensive than the standard olive drab uniforms you can find in the UK (with ERDL being the more expensive of the two) A pair of olive drab top and trousers should be less than £50 in most cases some even cheaper. Tiger stripe can be slightly more expensive depending on what type you've chosen but generally your looking at £50 for a set and ERDL coming in at £60 or higher. The tricky part is often getting the webbing right, whilst there are a wide range of different webbing used in the conflict I'm going to talk mainly about M56 or M1967 webbing, which is very hard to find in the UK with some kits often going for the more widely accessible ALICE LC2 system which was implemented after the US had already left the conflict, a ALICE LC2 set should cost around £25 for the suspenders, the pistol belt, two ammo pouches and a canteen cover + canteen. Now whilst this is slightly anarchistic, I myself would go for a LC2 webbing with the steel buckle as opposed to the plastic buckle (pictured above) as this is a bit of a giveaway and generally the steel buckle is better looking, it can save the user a great deal of money. For those looking for a M56 or M1967 webbing set it can be trickier to find but it isn't impossible to locate, for instance I myself found a bargain and got a complete set of M56 webbing for slightly less than £50. But generally both types of webbing can cost upwards of £60 to even £100, some even more. Boots can often be purchased for around £30, typically these would be the Jungle boots that were black and green. A very loose example of a impression could be. US ARMY GRUNT Olive Drab Uniform M56 or 67 webbing, with a assortment of pouches. M1 helmet with cover or your choice of headgear Jungle Boots Weapons M16 M14 XM21 M60 M79 M3A1 Grease Gun XM177E1 or E2 12 Gauge Shotguns, M37 or others M1911A1 USMC GRUNT ERDL or Olive Drab Uniform M56 or 67 webbing, with a assortment of pouches. M1 helmet with cover or your choice of headgear Jungle Boots Weapons M16 M14 M40A1 Model 70 M60 M79 M3A1 Grease Gun 12 Gauge Shotguns, M37 or others M1911A1 Like I said I'm not a certified historian but I thought I'd make a start and hopefully give some ideas or help to someone looking to start a Vietnam loadout or improve a existing one. I aim to put some more details on here and then I'll update this thread with a couple of posts when I find the time for a couple of more factions such as US special forces and the ARVN, as well as a guide on what weapons to buy and how to generally run your kit as these. If you have any requests or anything like that don't hesitate to post them. PrivatePyle Out
