    Can anyone ID this rig? It is the same one / kind that was worn by Ralph Fiennes and Barrie Rice in The Hurt Locker. It looks a lot like the old BHI M4 chest rig, but isn't.

    Here's a pic from the movie "Route Irish". The actor on the right is wearing the rig in question.



    Thanks.

    Speaking as someone who works in the movie biz , it could be a purchased item , it could also have been made for the movie , I have a Tactical tailor rig very similar , it could be totally custom , I do know this , from my experience in the movie biz , its probably a Chinese airsoft knock off they bought to save money , $25 compared to $100 for the real deal , but this is all just my speculation.

    Looks like a knock off version of this Blackhawk rig :

    Not sure on that one, but there was a lot of OSOE gear in Hurt Locker
