The Under 600 Club

This thread for Loadouts/Guns that cost less than $600. Let's see your budget aeg's, sensible gear, and home made projects/innovations.

Hopefully members can post approximate prices of their loadouts. This thread could also serve as a resource for Newbies and cost-concious persons alike.

I will start this thread off with a stock JG M733, surplus woodland BDU's, surplus webbing kit, a china made dump pouch, and 7 MAG midcaps. Total cost: approx. $560 (gear from Army Issue, mags/pouch from ehobbyasia)

My sniper rifle's outer barrel and some barrel spacers!

... I can't enter this... Jesus is that an eye opener... Every time I go play I'm basically wearing over 600 dollars worth of gear (not counting guns)

If I were to throw BB's, I could enter this.... My boots and my GBB alone would disqualify me. Wow. Is this an addiction?

I think so

I did the same thing... I put down all my bare gear... and GBB thinking "This should be just under the limit"

turns out my vest, uniform, boots and hydration pack break the limit

HAHAHAHA!

I am not a geardo/gear-head/gear-savy in any way. Don't know what button should go where, what rig has an extra smoke pouch on the weak side shoulder vs. which one has a pouch that'll hold a nalgene bottle...

But I had to sort out all my gear because we renovated the basement and here's the damage...

Full BDU's, hats, other:
- DPM
- Flecktarn
- Multicam
- Woodland
- DCU
- PMC?...don't know if you'd count that..
- 4!!!! (how that'd happen) sets of gloves
- 4 shemags
- 2 helmets
- 3 goggles, 2 shooting glasses
- 3 shooting/trainer belts
- 3 slings
- kneepads
- misc rags/hankys/etc...
- and a good old pair of Danner boots

Rigs:
- simple M4 chest rig
- craptastic useless HK knockoff rig
- Arktis DPM rig
- Flectarn rig (LOL...haven't even had a chance to use this one....sad)
- CIRAS
- Wasatch
- nice hydration pack
- 2 226 serpas
- dropleg holster
- m4 subload leg rig
- 226 6004
- an extra rubbermaid bin of misc pouches, straps, buckles, etc....

So...under $600? Not even close....but if you want the bare essentials get the best that you can afford of the following:
- goggles
- gloves
- boots

Go with the PMC look and load out with a Pantac or Eagle RRV (although the Pantac Wasatch is really quite nice).

Spend the rest of your money on guns, ammo and fun times with your friends.

I don't even have half my kit with me right now (it's in my locker), but here's a small spread of some day-to-day kit I use...



CPGear GenIII 64' pack - $320
CPGear Kidney Pouches - $50
Everything else...issued

There's the odd thing like nametapes and kit mods that were bought, but all those items fell under $5 each.

I own way more gear than my first post, actually have an eagle pc on the way. I just assembled a package to give people an idea of what they can put together for under $600. If you're coming into the sport while in University (like I was) this would have been really valuable information to have when trying to get workable gear setup without breaking the bank.

For example, another under $600 kit of mine would be the new Gen.3 SRC G36c, a 3 point sling, and a pair of issued Marpat BDU's. (You don't need any additional gear because the SRC comes with 2 linkable 500rnd highcaps)

I won't be able to enter my VSR or CA but you get the idea...

I'm under as long as I only include boots, BDU, and vest and nothing else. God damn I've sunk a lot into this hobby.

Can it be done?

HMM could I build an "under $600" loadout that would be decent..

Ground up

Surplus boots $60
Surplus BDU (includes hat ) - $100
Cheap backpack ( food water ammo carry all ) $30
Mechanic gloves $30
Shemag $14
Googles ( PB) $45
Chest rig ( Eagle universal rig .. should be eveyone's first rig) $90
= 369 so I have $230 for a gun

lets get Kraken!
