so im looking on creating a US commando style loadout from the Vietnamese, cold war. and i wanted the primary to be based on the commando from black ops ( http://clansas.webstarts.com/uploads/1714469-commando_super.jpg ) and then use a 1911 variant for a secondary, i also liked the idea of a crossbow..but im not sure that would be allowed?:/ so i need ideas on what guns etc would be best for this style of loadout. thanks:)

If it were me I would go for a late 60s/Early 70s SOG loadout from 'Nam with USMC Tiger Stripe BDU's, Jungle Boots, and just an old surplus/replica Vietnam era webbing system with the Yoke and belt kit. I would also look at the Echo1 CAR-15 or G&P CAR-15 (Old or New style) as the Commandos from this time would've used that kind of weapon.

first off i wouldnt take much factual info from CoD as its more of a fantasy military shooter. But a list of weapons the USMC used in 'Nam and Cold War were CAR-15 (Shortened M16), M16 A1/A2, XM177 (Commando. No airsoft version though), M14, Ingram MAC10, M60 VN (GPMG), M1 Carbine, Colt M1911, .357 Magnum Revolver. Thats just a 'short' list, but they also used weapons from fallen Viet Cong. Just google "Weapons of the Vietnam War" and then when you find one you like just google the airsoft version
