Okay....for trousers get either fallschirmhosen/springerhosen....i'm not sure that any FMJ were around the berlin area, definatley in Northern france/russia. You can see them in Band of Brothers at Carentan.

Probably neither?
SS Fjr were seen mostly in Splinter jump smocks?

If you've got the jump smock, why get the dot 44?

There's a good book about the history of the SS Fj, can't remember the name but someone will know on here
