Okay, after reading all the posts about stupidest/worst weapons, I've been thinking...if you had your choice, what weapon (s) would you have armed some of those unfortunates with? For example-
I always thought Destro cried out for a c96 Mauser broomhandle pistol, especially after he started carrying one in the comics. Snow Job should have had some sort of biathalon rifle. Fridge should have...never been made. And so on.
Of course, realizing that not everybody is up on weapons and nomenclature, "The gun from Terminator 2" or whatever works, too...

I've rearmed certain joes with Marauder Inc guns.
Recoil has an MLG, MP5k and claymore (reminiscent of Poncho from Predator)
Gung-Ho v8 has a mini gatling gun
NF Shockwave has M4 w/ M203, silencer and sniper scope
NF Falcon has M4 w/ shotgun attachment
NF Tunnel Rat has M82 sniper rifle and/or M249 SAW
Big Brawler has M-16 w/ M203
Side Track gets M82 sniper rifle and spotter scope
Heavy Duty gets M60
Backblast gets M249 SAW
Still working on others...

All excellent choices. I was really happy when they started packing M16A1's with a lot of the comic pack figures, they make excellent 80's-period weapons for the Joes. The original M16 that Grunt came with was pretty simplistic.

All my Green Shirts are carrying Marauder P-90's, I love those. Also the 25th Commando Snake Eyes has a one.

I gave my custom V9 (probably the wrong V #, sue me) a silenced pistol. SE is a ninja or a commando, why would he carry around an unsilenced uzi????? He at least needs a silcenced handgun.
I give my CC a small sub-machine gun. He's not a weapons specialist, so I figured he'd have something brutal with no finese involved. If you get that close, his gun will tear you up.
And I always add a pistol of some kind to Scarlett. Even though it's iconic, like SE's uzi, she needs something a bit more practical.
Great topic, btw.

I figure Snake Eyes, being a 'Nam-vet Ranger, would probably favor a Smith and Wesson "Hushpuppy" for a sidearm, maybe a Colt 1911 with a supressor. The final Valor vs. Venom Snake Eyes got his weapon down cold-Mini-Uzi with supressor and folding stock. Aces.

I've re-armed most of my Joes with Marauders. M4's, M1911's all around and specialty weapons/modular variations for some.
Same for Cobra.... I have kept few original weapons. All hand guns are gone but some have kept their "signature" weapons. Gung-Ho has his grenade launcher, Cobra Commander his venom pistol, Destro his gun, Zartan his pistol, etc... But for most others I have replaced them for either asthetics or because it seems more likely the character would carry the particular weapon I've chosen for them...all based on my preference of course but still...very cool.
