@John: I asked the shop who was selling them and they say they're sold out. They are making another production run, might take over a month.

Also, can't post them for privacy reasons, but there are pics of MARSOC in Multicam in the field, I've seen some of them.
Basically take SFG, replace COMTACs with Sordins; replace DD Mk18 RIS II (9,5) with a DD M4A1 RIS II (12.5) and you've got the "new" MARSOC lol!

Is that "Ffffffffffffffuuuuuuuuuuuuuu" due to aggravation or excitement at the news that an impression suddenly requires even MORE gear?

Aggravation. MARSOC was fine without all this Crye shit.

I blame you, JSOC, on behalf of Vince of Airsoft Canada.
That's about right.

So whats up with Recon now? Do they even use RRV's, CIRAS', MBSS' anymore? All I see is 1st Recon in A-Stan rocking SPC's w/ FSBE II pouches.

Conker secured a huge batch of 3rd Recon pics and yeah RRV, CIRAS and MBSS are still used.

Also, most Force Recon Platoon of MEU still use all of the FSBE kit

Spend a few months collecting a proper kit for a specific impression: learn that they all changed the gear to newer, more expensive hard to find stuff.

Joy.

Conker: assuming you still can't show the pics (even with faces or backgrounds blotted out), can you at least tell us what KIND of multicam uniform they're wearing? Is it one of. The Crye cuts (field/combat etc.) or ACU cut in multicam?

Sorry, I can't share them. That was a condition.

But sure I can answer your question: they all seem to be wearing the Crye AC set.

Why are these marines using E-mags? I was under the impression they didn't feed properly in north american STANAG compatible weapons.

Magpul through Chris Costa at one of the past SHOT Shows has stated that you shouldn't use EMAGs in standard M4/M16 lower receivers unless it's an emergency. Apparently they're not as optimized to feed as the standard PMAGs.

Those look like regular PMAGs anyway.
