One reason you don't shoot long bursts from a standing position.

I've heard conflicts of whether the M60 is 7.62 or .50. Clarification?

7.62mm, belt-fed, air-cooled, general-purpose machine gun :)

I WANT ONE! the difference between me and the next guy who feels the same way is that the marine corps is gonna issue me one! SEMPER FI!

It's 7.62, always has been. You don't hold on to a .50 and fire it standing up.





Well, not for long, anyway. :D





Now, from a mount on top of an APC, a .50 is a very nice toy. :)





Why'd they have to ruin the music of the '60 with that stupid jungle music?


:barf:

Actually rugerdude, they aren't. :(

If you become an 03, you'll be getting a M240G now. It's a bit heavier but seems more reliable than the old pig. It does seem to also have squarer edges, it felt like it cut into me more the few times I hauled one around.

ruger, I think we're going to rename you "GungHOdude"! :D


The '60 is nice, but there's room for improvement. The FN, for example, is a better machine.

Kind of like comparing a Chevrolet to a BMW. Both are decent cars, and will get you there, but there is a world of difference.
