The Canadian Rangers are our military arctic specialists up here. They're not like the US Rangers, more like rangers in the traditional sense, and they go on long range arctic patrols, stuff like that. They usually carry WWII vintage Enfield bolt action rifles. Why? I believe the reasons mainly to be durability, reliability, range and calibre/round size. After all, ol' Shippy here would probably be more likely to run into a polar bear than anything else, and he would need something that packed a more powerful punch than a regular assault rifle... But then again, maybe an M-14 would have worked just as well. I think it's the same calibre, though I'm not sure about the bullet length (anyone?).
At any rate, I hated that Stalker came with a German WWII SMG and the Crimson Guard with the Garand rifle, but I can see how this makes sense. It doesn't bother me at all.
Besides, it was an easy kit-bash considering they already had his head with a knit cap on it.
I'm by no means any kind of arctic (or infantry) specialist, but I have used M-16s and SAWs in cold weather conditions and they are a pain!!!

I love it. Shipwreck is my boy. He kicks a**, that's why he's in the Arctic.
Will his legs allow him to fit in any vehicles?
They should at least have given Polly a jacket and beanie. He'll just kick it in the Snowcat anyway.
The rifle looks cool and sounds like it would be good to have. The guns Cobra had in ROC were pretty crazy scary though. Maybe he'll need a bit of an upgrade.
