I have been making these videos for some time now to try and help educate M60 owners on these guns. I wanted to put them in a post here should there be any information in any of these that can help any current / future M60 owners or current / future Sturmgewehr.com members.

Hey.. I saw your video before about the M60 being locked up!  Good info.  Keep it up.

Don't have a M60, though wish I did.

Aaron,

Your videos have been my primary source of M60 information since I bought my gun several years ago.  A lot of us M60 owners are scattered about the country and so its rare that I run into someone in person that can offer assistance with the gun, etc. And not all of us are former military or have significant prior hands on M60 knowledge at the time of our <very expensive> purchases. That's where your vids come in to save the day. You have been a huge asset to the machine gun community and esp. in the M60 world. You stepped into some old timers large shoes and quickly became THE M60 man in my opinion. I  pinged you numerous times w pesky M60 questions and you have always been gracious enough to help a brother out. Heck I have a predator pack bc of your early vids describing the various components required and all that jazz. 

I'd love to buy you a beer or a shoot a case of ammo alongside you one day dude. Hopefully that chance will present itself. You have an open invitation to join my crew on our OFASTS line spots as I've mentioned.

Thanks for the videos, Aaron! As far as the locked up M60, is there a particular ammo that is more prone to case rupture? Thanks again.

@Waffen Und Bier , steel case ammo is no good in the 60s. Most case ruptures I have seen causing lock ups is because guys run cheap steel case.

@Waffen,

 

I personally experienced a severe lock up as described. The first day I owned my M60 in fact. My usual process upon receiving a new MG is to test which ammo it likes. I shot a few rounds of various ammo thru it just fine...then I made the mistake of Monarch steel 308. On the 4th round it blew sh$t out the ejection port peppering my friends arm and hard locked the barrel into the trunnion.

Ultimately I had to get the bolt milled out (destroying it) thru the top slot to free it all up. The extractor was toast as expected.

I learned the hard way and this was just before Aaron put out his video on this issue. 

My M60 will never eat another steel cased round in its life!

Thanks gents. This happened to a buddy of mine and I can't remember what kind of ammo it was. He had to have his bolt and op rod milled. Also saw crap ammo bulge a friend's receiver.  I'll definitely stick with LC or other brass. No steel. Just wondering if anyone has had this happen with factory LC ammo.
