1st Marine Division Korean War Airsoft

Back in business! Finally… 🙂 More or less generic early/mid Korean War USMC gear. Was good to be back on the “fields of glory” and had a fun day with my buddies 😀

Used the ICS Garand and an Ares Grease Gun. ICS Garand, cool as ever! The Ares Grease Gun was a blast to use, very compact and easy to handle. Range, ROF, accuracy… nothing spectacular but good enough and really fun. A welcome change from hauling around the more cumbersome oldschool guns.

Checking for PVA snipers 😉

Decided to use the “Mosquito cover” instead of the regular reversible USMC helmet cover. You can spot them in use in WW2 and the Korean War. I think I saw some in Vietnam War photos as well but don’t know for sure anymore (not my area of expertise). Pics from Korea:

Note to self: next time don’t forget the M3 wire stock at home 😳

And after a stressful workday in the trenches… back to sleep 🙂

  1. welcome back.

  2. Welcome back man, nice photo and good Korean area!

  3. Glad to see you back at it. And you are correct they were most definitely used in Vietnam.

  4. Glad you’re back!

  5. Hey, I need your help please 🙏🏻
    I don’t know if I have to buy the M1 garand by ICS or the G&G one
    Thank you

    • Hi, Externals of the G&G are better (closer to the real steel Garand).
      Performance wise they are pretty similar, the ICS may have a slight edge.
      It comes down to to personal preference, IMHO you can’t go wrong with either!

      • Thank you so much
        There aren’t many reviews about the garand by G&G so you help me a lot.
        I want to use it for a WW2 1st ID set up even if those model were used in Korean War but there aren’t many choices.
        Thanks again 😁

  6. How are you liking the ATF Boondockers vs the WWII Impressions? Which is more comfortable?

    • Comfort wise I can find no real difference (not surprising as they are probably made by the same company). Both hold up very well, though I have worn the WWII Impression boots a lot more (had them about two years before the ATF ones were released). The ones in the photos are the WWII Impression boots, bought in 2014 and still going strong 🙂

  7. Nice pics
