Here's a real pic of him

He is most likely carrying a MK18 with a Aimpont comp m2 with larue mount, PEQ-2 (I think) and a KAC QD suppressor, all painted tan. All of these accesories can be bought cheap from chinese retailers.

If you're going for the movie rifle, it's a different story.

The Mk12 SPR in the film has a Hogue grip so it's gonna have to be a GBBR unless you can mod one to fit a motor somehow...

Don't know about different models of scope so can't help you there but I have a feeling it'll be a Leupold.

Standard looking crane stock. Knight's Armament RIS?

A fairly standard / generic looking suppressor to me, so you could probably get away with any cheap standard ones or anything with the wrong trades on since it's getting painted.

I'm going to go out on a limb here (I'm sure others can confirm or correct me) but from this and other pics of him and his team mates I'd say that's an M4A1 with SOPMOD block 1 parts fitted NOT a MK18.

 

Either way, as you say all the parts are available from the interwebz and the rifle in he uses in the film (which I'm guessing is what the OP was actually asking about) is a MK12 SPR.

In other pics you can see that the barrel is 10.5/.3 inches long when a Block 1 usually has a full length M4A1 barrel.

I could be wrong though.

Matthew Axelson in Lone Survivor carried a Mk12 Mod1 SPR. G&P do a pretty good one, you'll want the one with the sliding stock rather than the fixed stock.

Attachments wise you'll need a 6-9" harris bipod, Leupold Mark 4 scope with a Docter micro red dot mounted on the rear ring, a PEQ2 laser, Knights Armament vertical foregrip, some Knights rail covers and a really good paint job.

I priced one up a few months back and using decent quality reproduction accessories it was about £450-500.

My mistake, couldn't see the end of the barrel in the first shot. Mk18 mod 0.

Here you go a little light reading on the subject http://www.ar15.com/

 

As cheese has said (not that he needs my validation) an accurate MK12 will cost silly money and still be no better than the base gun it was originally, The barrel length, scope and bipod are alomost worthless in airsoft, other than for looks and willy waving rights.

 

I'm in the process of building a MK12 Impression out of the necesity to use some very nice spare parts I have. Even a vague impression is going to cost nearly £200 in parts ontop of your base M4.
