The M60 light machine gun is something of a contentious subject. Many veterans who used it in combat in Vietnam remember it very fondly despite its design defects, while many more recent users detest it. I think I know why – because many of the M60s flaws were related to its long-term durability, so that newly made guns in the 1960s performed well, and the problems didn’t start to crop up until the guns had seen years or decades of hard service.
With that in mind, today we’re taking a look at a modern updated M60E3 at the range, courtesy of Scott at Hydro Print Services. He also shows us how to properly shoot it, after I demonstrate my impressive inability to hit the targets.
