IMO, either make sure you're primary is reliable as well have at least basic knowledge of how it operates in case you'd need in-field repairs, and/or have a back up weapon. It really sucks to break the gun within first engagement on a long operation (happened to me, luckily my Glock was there).

As far as I am concerned, there are no games of such kind that are NOT MILSIM, however, could be wrong. I'm with the other guys here: get a kit first, play around with it, then start building for a MILSIM. Throughout the process, you'll see what works and what doesn't, and what needs to be added. Just my $0.5.
