I'm wanting to go to operation Iron Horse 3 next year but from what I have for my load out I feel I am very ill prepared. So I decided to set a roughly large budget
(what I consider large, Idk about you guys)
I'm estimated somewhere between 600-800 dollars.
-My current load out is a Cyma CM.028S Ak47 with the mag it came with
- I have two 7.4v 1200 mah Venom Lipo batteries
- I have Black Woodland camo cargo pants (I guess that's the type of camo?)
- with a OD green hoodie
-And a 24 hour 5.11 rush pack in coyote brown
- Last but not least I have that cheap pastic face mask and goggles

I've been in at least 10- 15 backyard airsoft games.
In the rain and cold and on hot sunny day in a jungle environment. So I have little to some experience.

BTW if you are new at this sport I highly highly recommend Venom Lipo batteries. If they break or fail for any reason, even if it's your fault the company will replace them.
Also the Cyma AK is mostly metal which is outstanding for 75 bucks and that version 3 gear box won't die.

Anyway....


This load out I am working on is designed to fit the role of a rifle man and suppose to be fairly light weight
I am stuck on a couple things for my load out ..

- I definitely know I want a Krytac Trident CRB, wolf gray from evike for 355 (unless there is a better place?)

Looking at this rifle are some externals I would like to add to it but if it doesn't fit the budget it's not necessary.

1. I want a Magpul UBR Stock
2. I want an Aim Point T1 or T2
3. Magpul Flip up sights
4 Magpul Forgrip
5.An offset flash light
6. Maybe some rail covers for better grip on the hand guard.. but that's not needed.

BTW if I can I will order this stuff off of snitactical.com
(Not paying 300 bucks for a stock lmao)

The things I'm having trouble with

1. Will the color of my cargo pant's work?
2. What chest rig?
3.What color chest rig ?
4. Side arm?
5. What brand for side arm?
6. Grenades?
7. Smoke Grenades?
8. Will a 3s Lipo fit in a UBR Stock? (Stick type)
9.helmet?
10. Radio?

So as you all see I am completely and utterly lost.
Again I would like to fit all that stuff between 600-800 bucks and even cheaper if I can.

As always thanks for your time.
I also apologize for all these question lol

Any and all advice/ Recommendations are appreciated

P.S. I like the OD camo pattern for CoST So I guess I'll join that side. That and that's the type of environment I usually play in.

For a cheap but useful chest rig. A Chicom 3 pocket one. Or. A condor mopc in tan for a plate carrier. For camo just go to your local surplus store and get a woodland bdu set.

I like the Condor MOPC. It's reasonably priced and I can customize it over time.

I'll just make a couple of suggestions.

If you're trying to stick to a budget, I wouldn't bother getting a sidearm, smoke grenades, or "frag" grenades.  If you have your heart set on running with a pistol, I recommend the Elite Force 1911 tac.  As far as holsters go, pick up a Blackhawk SERPA from Amazon--they're priced pretty reasonably.  Also, it might just be my opinion, but I wouldn't invest in a radio either.  Since this is your first Milsim event, I'm assuming that you won't be in a position of authority.  I recon that your radio would go unused.  Also, Avengers makes good quality chest rigs and plate carriers, and Phantom gear makes all sorts of molle pouches.

Gotta disagree with you, a radio is an absolutely essential piece of equipment.

 

A lot of folks use these.  They're cheap, and they get the job done.   https://www.amazon.c...k/dp/B007H4VT7A

Love the recommendations guys!!!

So here's what my future gear list consist of:

- Krytac CRB (It's a 10 mag bundle)
- Elite Force Pistol and I'll buy the extended mag for it
Or the FN Herstal FNX-45 With the extra mag
- with the Blackhawk SERPA holster (nice holster thxs)
- I'll go to a surplus store and spend 100 bucks on different BDUS
- The Condor MOPC plate carrier (still looking into pouches)
- I already have a 5.11 24 hour rush pack
- I already have 922 bates boots that will work
- The UV-R5 Radio
- idk about frags. I might get 1 but that's probably not happening until I feel I'm ready to "upgrade" same with smoke grenades

My only problems now:

1. Helmet?
2. I'm going to use my 2s lips with the krytac will that work? They recommend a 3s

I think that's it.

It roughly adds up to 700-750
Not including shipping :-(
What do you guys think?

P.s. I'm planning on running the krytac completely stock for little while. But if all goes well I'll have it externally customized before iron horse 3

Headgear is all really preference. If you're going on a budget, I recommend a PMC Cap or Boonie. If you want a helmet and you're going for an Operator-style loadout, an OpsCore FAST replica may suit you well. Mine is a PJ Tactical, I snagged it at a local field for around 35$. If you want more of an infantry-themed loadout, MICH 2000 helmets are becoming pretty popular, I've seen them run for around 40$. Helmets are not at all required, and a lot of great players with expensive loadouts run without them. They're mostly cosmetic, but there's some safety value to them as well, just something to keep in mind. JP, Faded Giant 3, anyone?

I already have a good old hiking hat. It's a light tan color.
If I get a helmet it will be a bike helmet and I can spray paint and mount thing's too it but that's not going to happen until I'm ready for a "upgrade"

Also I was scrolling around on YouTube and I found couple cool reviews on battle belts / war belts. Which look awesome and will support the light weight idea behind my load out. I also am attracted to soft taco mags. The only problem is they are 40 bucks a piece. So I have the idea of sewing some up for myself.

Thoughts on a battle belt?

Battle belts are cool. But I just use a Lbt riggers belt and a strap all of my stuff to that which is usually just a pistol a rifle mag and my med blowout pouch and 2 frag pouches. Really any heavy duty Riggers belt will serve you well if you just running a pistol on it

I have a Matrix Mich 2000 helmet.  It's not as "tacticool" as some more expensive helmets out there, but it works perfectly for my needs.

Also, about Blackhawk holsters.  If you do get the EF 1911, make sure you get the "Commander" version 1911 holster.  Blackhawk holsters are awesome imo.  I currently have two; one for my EF 1911 and one for my Beretta  m92a1.
