Developed in the late 1950s, the M60 was designed as a general-purpose machine gun (GPMG), a single weapon to replace as many different .30 caliber machine guns in the Army inventory as possible. The M60 was deployed as the chief infantry machine gun for Vietnam, along with a variety of air, ground, and water vehicle mountings. While other designs started to fill the infantry niche from the 80s onward, the M60 is still a front-line automatic weapon with American and allied armed forces. The barrel is equipped with a fixed blade front sight, elongated bird cage flash hider, and swiveling bipod. The receiver trunnion is fitted with the quick release hardware for the barrel and a folding ladder rear sight, with the Catco address and serial number on the left side of the receiver. Fitted with a ventilated barrel shroud, ribbed forearm and pistol grip, and a plastic buttstock with a flip-up shoulder rest. Included with the lot are three extra barrels with bipods and a pintle unit.
Excellent, with 95% plus matte black phosphate finish, showing light wear along the edge, minor spotting and light handling marks. The furniture is in equal condition. A crosspin for mounting the pintle unit to the trunnion is absent, otherwise the accessories are in good order. Mechanically excellent. NOTE: This weapon is a National Firearms Act (NFA), fully transferable Class 3, which is registered with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, (BATFE) under the provisions of 18 U.S.C.
