It looks exactly like multicam except greener. Makes me wonder if they dyed it to make it work better in jungle or if its a green knockoff variant.

Or are my eyes being fooled and does multicam really blend in this well in a jungle environment?

Wow... just about the only thing that could blend in better is a Ghillie suit.

Anybody see the new season premiere? The Sig P226 they had in 1977....


SPOLIER
Finally isn't out of place. But Hurley can't use it. Great scene.

Yeah they totally disregarded the anachronism and used the same weapons they used in the other seasons. Quite a few continuity errors too.

Hurley yelling:
"I have a gun and I know how to use it!"
While trying to rack the slide unsuccessfully(probably because the safety was on) was the highlight of the entire series so far.

GO HURLEY!

He had a SIG 226, which doesn't have a safety that locks the slide, or any manual safety for that matter. Hurley just sucks with guns hehe.

even funnier, he got the SIG in the early 1970s, and Jack gets a m92fs

Well it is possible they kept their old guns they got from seasons 1-4 when they went time traveling.

I mean, I was surprised that they didn't keep the M4s from the mercs. Imagine M4s in the 70s.

Ruger Mini-14s exists in the 70s right?

I found it stupid in a scene when they were in the 50s, the confiscated M1 Garands and Locke said that theirs look brand new, as in you have to be in the 1950s to get a brand new M1 rifle when you can get on just as new today.

They were shown stealing the guns from the armory. All they traveled through time with was a garand and m1 carbine. The mini 14 had only been ot a year or two during those scenes, so its possible bt not likely theyd have them.
