Thread: Pics of your US Marine kit

  1. #1

    Default USMC Loadout

    Alright guys, I play airsoft. And I've been admiring the Marine corp ever since I was little. I plan on joining in the near future.

    Now, I need help on exactly what the Marines are loaded out with.

    I already have my digital camoflauge. I already have my helmet (but I still need a cover)

    Now, is this the vest that they're using?

    http://www.entrygear.com/product.asp?id=1060

    Also, I was told the Marines use the Coyote Brown color over their woodland, and desert BDU's. Is that true?

    Also, what pouches should I be getting, and in what color. (I would really appreciate a link.)

    Now, Guns.

    Are marines using the M4A1 at all? or Is it strictly M16A4?

    Would this be a gun they used at all?

    Thanks in advanced.

    the CQB M4 is NO WAY for USMC

    thats the right vest... a coyote brown interceptor... marines use both m4a1 and m16a4 but m16a4 is more widespread, they dont use the CA m15a4 CBQ because its an airsoft rifle... lol.. the pouches they are meant to be using should be coyote brown now... but theres still woodland and other pouches in use... *too slow*

    ^So I shouldn't make the pouches OD? Also, do the marines use ACOG's?

    Gear Wise...

    Gentex Lightweight Helmet (LWH, replaced PASGT costs roughly 300-500.00 even used)

    PASGT Kevlar Helmet (good alternative if you dont wanna pay 500.00 for a helmet, has been with the Corps since the 80's)

    Digital MARPAT Reversable Helmet Cover (Desert to Woodland)

    Desert Digital MARPAT Cammie

    Woodland Digital MARPAT Cammie

    Belleville USMC 550ST Infantry Combat Boots

    USMC Coyote Brown Interceptor Body Armor (IBA)

    SDS MOLLE II FLC (Issue to Marines, isn't used much at all - they generally use there OTV unless they are carrying more pouches)

    SDS Riflemen Pouch Set (Consists of 3 Rifle Mag Pouches - and two Frag)

    USMC Coyote Brown AITES First Aid Pouch (Issue to every field marine)

    Camelbak STORM (Issue)

    ESS NVG Low Profile Goggles (These aren't issue, though they are very popular with Marines & one of the best damn goggles for an afford price out there)

    Boot Blousers

    SDS Patrol Pack

    PolyPro Neck Gatior
    [img]http://www.nexternal.com/useg/images/Poly****eckGaitor.jpg[/img]

    Weapon wise.. M16A4 MWS Is the issue rifle for field Marines. The M4 RIS how ever is getting more popular with the Marine Corps lately. You'll see a few photos of COs/Platoon Sergeants with the M4.

    Marines use the ACOG. It's Woodland, not OD. OD =Olive Drab (Green..).

    The guarder ModII FSBE copies might be better if you're loading down with a bit, that's what I'm using for my SAM-R.

    The color is pretty much whatever you've got, for the older stuff, and if you're using desert tri and woodland interchangeably, the woodland gear is the best choice, but if you're using a MARPAt setup, I'd hunt down some coyote stuff.

    You may want to look into the Wiley SG-1 goggles, also relatively cheap, I <3 mine.

    Barre Army/Navy carries some dumpy old Panama type boots for $25 -- as big a shame as it is for me to reccomend cheap boots, if you're only using them for airsoft, then do that.

    Woodland camo Interceptors are being gradually replaced by coyote brown ones. Most infantry units have received the CB Interceptors by this point.

    USMC0300, I like that you put boot blousers on the list. By the way, sorry to jack the thread, but someone asked this on another forum and never got a straight answer, so I figure I'll ask here. Does the USMC ever wear the FLC without the IBA, or is the IBA always worn?

    i THINK the IBA is always worn in combat zones.. unless the Marine has bought another vest or plate carrier.. but maybe for training excersises they only wear the FLC.. just my guess tho
