I have been a member for a year and a half, I lost my old accounts password. Also da vinci I am proud that you are doing better with grammer and pounctition, compared to when I first joined. If you don't belive me that I have been on here awhile just ask knief.
Have you toyed with the idea of moving the triple shingle to the front of your rig, and the double over to your weak side? It's an idea I stole from Mosin way back when he posted his real-life battle rattle, and it's INCREDIBLY practical (I rock an eagle scalable and its ridiculously similar to your vest). You're a righty, so you're mostly doing reloads with your left hand. Having that double there instead of the shingle is fast access to 4 mags, and having the one row of 3 up front will let you go prone easily (without mashing a radio in a pouch, either).
If I were you, I'd have the pistol and its mags on the first line (belt kit). My first line is: Holster and pistol, IFAK, dump pouch, and my 3 pistol mags. That way, my vest has rifle mags, radio and related stuffs, frags, bangs, water, and my belt has lifesaver and emergency stuffs.

Double post for content, and opinions.
This is how the AR sits:
As previously said, I want to turn it into a MK18 MOD 1. I have an outer barrel+FH coming in, but here's the breakdown on price for what it'll all cost:
DD MK18 RIS II - Madbull ~$110 (If I can find it anywhere) ACM ~$60+shipping
Crane stock ~$30-$90
Crane stock battery ~$30
Low total would be around $120 High total would be around $230
I doubt I'll be buying all of these brand new, but would it be more worth it to buy these and turn my existing AEG into a MK18, or to sell mine and simply buy a new AEG that's close to being a MK18 and converting it?
I am building a MK18 (parts are ordered, awaiting shipping) but trust me: Go with your current set up and convert it. It is far easier, and costs about the same in the long run. AirsoftCarolina, Ebay, and Ehobby have the RIS II, but its almost more trouble than its worth. The only real reason to get a RIS II is to make an authentic MOD-1, in which case you also need the Colt body, which is also really hard to come buy. I was anal enough to go for the authentic build, but you may be better off going for a MK18 style instead of a legit MK18. Its WAY cheaper and much easier to find parts.
The Archangel Gabriel will sound Judgement with a blast from his trumpet. I kind of do the same thing with my rifle.
The Mod 0 is certainly cheaper. Do the same a that picture above, but throw on a peq 2, a KAC can, and a surefire 951 and it would look sweet. Or you can always do a block 1.5ish build with the KAC RAS like above, but with the new accessories like a specter DR and m3X and peq 15 like this i55.tinypic.com/35me688.jpg
