He commented that when the M-60 heated up as it did, it would rattle apart. Metal expansion saw pins work their way out. The tray cover would pop and the gun would seize up.
I think it's possible considering the way it was used, but can anybody confirm it?
Took me a long time before I could talk about it but YES it can and does happen.
I know for a fact it happened 45 years ago yesterday (Mar 10, 1968) Cause I did it.
Sometimes you think you have to, I've been debating this in my mind for 45 years. I wonder if things would have turned out different if I fired the 6 round burst your suppose to instead of 100 round burst.
I will say the gun didn't hold up as long as I would have liked. It'll go a long time with 6 round burst.
