The flash suppressor is orange so people can tell is a fake gun. It a Federal law in the US IIRC.

Very cool uniform techiecl.

Yeaup, G36K, and double yup to it being airsoft. Its a cheap springer by the Eagle Company. They have it numbered as an M41 for some odd reason.

Thanks for the compliments. I'll be updating as it progresses.

They probably called it an ‘M41’ so they don't get sued by H&K. Lots of computer games have real life weapons/cars/and now aircraft with fictional names so the real life makers don't sue over licensing, I don’t see real life being much different.

I made it.

The red vest was constructed from a large t-shirt by removing the sleeves with a stitch ripper, using fabric glue to attach the loops for the metal D-rings and the strips of polyrope. I used vest buckles to fasten the polyrope.

I put in a fake seam to make it seem like a closed vest rather than the open ones Mal, Tracy, and Zoe are shown wearing in the series. Though it doesn't really show up in the pic.

The trousers were suit pants. I cut off the the belt loops and with more fabric glue put on grossgrain ribbon for the stripping.

The suspenders, gun, and helmet (with liner) were purchased. And I commished an artist to put the symbol from the unofficial browncoat flag on it.

*Shrug* I don't come up with the costume design. Look at the screenshots of "Serenity" and "The Message". Its clearly a red vest.

Very nice. Although there's one item missing that you didn't mention... a brown coat.
