I'm sure it is called Bravo Two Zero, Frog. Otherwise you're not in the wrong.

 

I must say, such a kit makes me quite jealous. As I have always been a fan of simple belt-line kits that are all about practicality, or at least as practical as the design and technology of the time allowed it to be. Good job, keep it up and good luck.

Haha yep it is Bravo Two Zero! I keep getting it wrong for some reason! It would be nice to see more SAS/SBS recce kits instead of the modern generic SOF kits where every country looks alike.

The nam era 203 vest was used for absolute eons right up until the late eighties at least, mate it's perfectly legit to have one for a GW1 impression imo

We only had UGL's (203's) in the later Iraq war, where they used a bandoleer of 11 40mm shells.

If you are looking at a GW1 SAS/SBS kit though there doesn't appear to be anything specific they used, I imagine 1 or 2 would have pinched a septic 203's vest or would have just put them in pouches they had on their webbing, maybe swapping out 3 mags for a couple of 40mm's.

TBH the 249 feels off with that kit, it screams RPK or PKM, a MAG 58 would work too... Otherwise nice. Be careful which lizard pattern you buy, some are not correct for Africa

Yea, Ideally I'd want a FN MAG but probably going to pick up a Galil and make it into an R4.. I was thinking the Portuguese lizard pattern assuming it could have been picked up from Angola or Mozambique

yeah portuguese is kosher as is french, and danish. DPM is ok for later period like the 90s. let me know how serious you are about R4 parts I'm working on sourcing some right now

 

I have an Ino Mag 58 as well but its a beast and it has been wet and hot, I don't want that much weight while I'm crawling through a swamp, nor do I want to get lipos wet

As you seem to be fairly knowledgeable on this is Belgian okay.. I was thinking it might be due to the Congo.. although I do have a nice source for Portuguese stuff

 

I just saw your pics and very nice loadouts! I would love some 32bn camo but that is way.. way out of budget!

 

I am also going loosely mid 90's due to using a M249 and the trousers are quite modernish also will gradually get it more 80's.. 

 

As for R4 parts it'll be a while before I can afford a new rifle (probably xmas time :() and i'd get it from camocorp.co.za as they ship to the UK although shipping is quite a hit! I'l probably save up and get some more Nutria kit while I'm at it!

 

Also can you recommend any holsters? completely stuck on this!
