For the folks doing the Hawkeye SHIELD uniform, Clint carries a H&K P30. They just so happen to make a decent airsoft version. This one is the electric version, personally I'd rock the springer, it has a metal slide.
For the 'V1' black uniform, my shopping list is (edited 5/28/12):
HK p30 (airsoft)
Safariland 6004 thigh shroud
Blackhawk CQC holster (drill new holes in the shroud and screw directly to the holster)
Blackhawk HPU performance vest (rip off the Velcro strips, alter the collar)
Tight, very short sleeved black t-shirt
Bianchi 7210 belt (or 8100?)
Black Crye G3 pants (ideal) or Emerson Gen2 (close) pants
Black Crye AirFlex (ideal) or G3-style (close) kneepads
Black tactical boots tba, until we find the right ones
Bow tba, pending a buildup by someone here
For the V0 jacket, the Blackhawk Ops Jacket (pull off the brand logos) and a patch from graphicjordan or similar. Glue it on with Goop Outdoor or Amazing Goop adhesive (I then put a few stitches around the edge to reinforce).

I do like the jacket. I'm trying to find a bigger/better picture
Crud! I think I was wrong on the pistol. The silver topside ejector port is wrong for the p30. However the port and the wedge sight are dead on for the Sig Sauer p226 Classic 22. Anybody else have a better picture from the opening scene?

Nah I think you're right about the P30, despite the silver ejection port. Let's face it for the gun enthusits we know that there are a hundred different versions/models/variations of one type of gun. I owned a Walther P99 with a silver ejection port which they don't typically have. Also according to imfdb.org says its a P30 Avengers, The (2012) - imfdb :. guns in movies :. movie guns :. the internet movie firearms database
Here is a bigger shot of the belt. I'm working on trying to find the correct buckle
*Update: It appears to be Bianchi PatrolTek 8100

So is Hawkeye's black tac quiver something that was made for the movie or can we purchase that as well? Also, I cant find good res pics of the black tac quiver. Can anybody find pics to post?
i guarantee you have to make one. no real quiver is round. i'd put some servos in it to rotate it around and put the wireless transmitter in the bow. lol
Anybody have any leads on the jacket?
These are the two I have experience with:
Condor Phantom -
This one runs at about 80 bucks.
Vertx Soft Shell -
This one is about 300. I have this one, it's made by Arc'teryx and branded under Vertx, and slightly cheaper then Arc'teryx's normal price range. The quality is outstanding, and blows the Condor out of the water, which is expected. The Condor I have isn't the Phantom, but a slightly older version (The Summit). For 80 dollars you can't do wrong with it. It's probably the cheapest functional soft shell on the market.
Those two are the closest I've seen. Look at REI and TAD GEAR too. I'm sure they have similar stuff.

The pants are G3 but has anyone found a cheaper substitute? Maybe just a straight black BDU? Modified with a "pocket" for the knee pads: Or are there bigger differences between the G3 and BDUs?

Those look pretty good. I'm going to get pretty close but not crazy. This get up will double for my paintball/airsoft gear. Not including the bow I put myself at a $100 cap for the V1 costume, which is very "do able".
Anybody ID'ed the boots?
I'm still waffling on the pistol, but after examining my p30, I think we can get a match by painting the ejector port. Might still not be 100%, but it'll be damned close.
The boots on the black costume look like work boots with a glue on Vibram sole.
Does anyone know where or how I could get the Shield symbol on Hawkeye's movie custom? Is there an easy way to make it?
Update on the Highlander boots; I would completely agree that they are NOT the base boot, the only 100% match is the sole. The only wayI see it being possible is for the costume group to have completely ripped them apart and re-assembled them adding the gaiters.
Also, found a fabric that color matches the red on the vest; alternating red-blue/purple, however, the weave is smaller than the screen used fabric, more as I have time.
