This skin is based upon the Halo: Reach AR and is used on the Halo CE AR
To install this skin you need Halo Map Tools, preferably version 3.5 or whatever is the newest version. Next save this skin anywhere on your computer you will remember. After that is done Load up HMT and select a map. Once you have a map selected hit the Bitmaps drop down and go to weapons\assault rifle\fp\bitmaps\assault rifle_fp. Just find that location, SAVE THE ORIGINAL TEXTURE JUST INCASE and inject the new skin and you can now see this skin ingame.

Its true that the M537 is the older model of the assault rifle which is ONLY USED by the UNSCDF army not marines. Its only that the marine's AR looks more bulky meanwhile the army counterpart is more skeletal although the armies is much more weaker. The Marine's M5A have much more variant: M5AB [halo ce] M5AC [halo 2&3] M5AK [the battle rifle looking model as seen in ghost of onyx] and about the battle rifle, its commonly used by the army [exception for reach as they have the more conventional DMR] it might had been on board the autumn and is used during the fight in the autumn but as the chief didn't get to any armory we cant find it and the battle rifle has only a few of them and the majority of marines is using the assault rifle and probably the BR user was killed in the autumn and none of them survived then after the crash of the autumn on halo the BR may have been destroyed and that we cant find them the only weird part is that why a longsword fighter undamaged is there??? It shoul've been damaged but it's not got any questions? add my yahoo mail : email@example.com i'll be gladly helping you guys :D

Its just the original AR with a yellow strip on it...it in no way looks anyway near the AR that is used in Reach, so it is not "Reach-like"
The bottem grip is supposed to be different, the compass/ammo in mag counter thing is supposed to be more squared off and much smaller and lower.
I understand this is only HaloCE and you cant really change it, but dont lie and say it looks Reach like when its totally not.
The Ma37 (the weapon you are attempting to skin) is a far inferior weapon to the Ma5b (the model you are skinning to look like the Ma37).
While the Ma5b has been in operation in the Marine corps since 2504 the Ma37 has been distributed across all branches since 2437.
The reason Ma37s were seen on Reach is because they were issued to the Army. Since the army is non-mobile it is primarily a holding force and rarely has to deal with anything tougher than insurrectionists.
With this in mind the soldiers on Reach would be the last to receive the less effective Ma5bs
The Autumn actually had stocks of Battle Rifles as one is present in Halo: First Strike delivered by Johnson's pelican.
However MC never reaches an armoury or is knowingly deployed in combat where such weaponry would be useful therein never bringing it from stock.
(The real reason is quite simply it's an old game and they hadn't created the weapon yet)
And I dearly hope that spoiler isn't true. Getting my copy of reach on release day and will be unhappy if something as cheesy as that is done :(
For a start we already know the Autumn was involved in the defence of Reach. Such a result would be quite disappointing tbh
