Graham: Your 1 friend is using a tan .45 holster. Should be black as far as I know.
otherwise, what Porkchop said

The Keiichione:
Your uniform is early woodland. NOT ERDL.
Chicom: OK.
AK: Use type 56 or 47. No vert grips or (romanian) wire stocks. No polymer/bakelite mags. Steel only.
M56 gear: Looks OK from what I see.
ALICE Ruck: Did not exist in the 'Nam. Lightweight ruck, CIDG, or ARVN ruck.

You have a general idea but still a-ways to go

Could be using old stock of WWII holsters?

I know some WWII holsters were painted/polished black for Vietnam.

Romanian AK is no go as are the Bakelite mags. It is also false to believe LRRP used AK. SF-SOGs-SEALs yeah, LRRP nope. I've been active for a number of years on the 101st ABN LRRP association board and C Co Rangers and all vets confirmed me they very seldomly used AKs and if so only the pointman would be.

Same situation for N Co Vince. Pointman, sometimes with black PJs for that extra second of "wait that guy isnt asian"

Thank you for all those replies,
I do believe that the Shirt on the Left is ERDL brown dominant (I have a Green dominant pair of trousers to go with that)
The Shirt on the right is most likely Early Woodland (thanks to Mr evolution)
I will work on this kit.

Good eye, Vince.


The original slant-pocket M1967 jungle uniforms were only sanctioned for use by US military personnel deployed to Southeast Asia during the Vietnam War. Once the war ended, the original ERDL uniforms saw only scattered usage, primarily by the US Marine Corps and US special operations community. Beginning in 1979, however, the DOD again reconsidered camouflage uniforms for issue to military personnel, and designed the Hot Weather Uniform (in a slightly varied cut from the Vietnam era jungle uniform) utilizing surplus stocks of green and brown dominant ERDL camouflage. Subsequent textile production for this uniform saw a distinctive color change from the Vietnam era ERDL patterns, creating what has come to be known among some historians as "transitional ERDL" or "ERDL 2nd generation." This pattern features mid-brown & grass green organic shapes with black "branches" on an light olive green background. This 2nd Generation ERDL uniform was primarily distributed to members of the Rapid Deployment Force and the USMC (along with some special operations personnel), but was officially only in production from 1979 to 1981.( thanks to ICUS)
