Operation Nifty Package 1989 – Delta Force kit

A few posts back I talked about the Operation Just Cause Ranger kit and now it is time to share something about the Delta Force side of things from that era. The title of the post is Operation Nifty Package, which was an operation inside an operation. Sounds good? Good. Can get a bit confusing,…

From new to Old – WE M1911 MEU Review

A good while back I talked about my Gun Heaven M92 replica pistol which I purchased from Milgear Finland. About a year ago I purchased another pistol replica from them, the WE M1911 MEU (link to the store page). They recently got them back in stock and I wanted to write a short review on…

The M723 Ranger carbine

We are not going in chronological order with these posts, as some of you might have noticed. There is no order in chaos, but that is beside the point here. This article is about the M723 carbine that I have, presented in the configuration as it was used by US Army Rangers during Operation Just…
