WTS: M60e3 Barrel Latch Retaining Caps - NOS

Recommended Posts

Some of the rarest M60 parts out there.... These Black caps were issued on the M60e3 to hold the barrel latch on. These are decades old original USGI surplus. New old stock.


$38 Each plus shipping

Whoa - this is an incredibly rare part.   I’ve never seen one that wasn’t on a factory E3 gun.  I’ve never seen this part included in an E3 kit even though it is part of the kit diagram as Aaron showed.  A once in a lifetime purchase opportunity for those fortunate E3 owners….  Only an Uber M60 connoisseur would have been able to identify & save these from the trash bin!!!  What a find!!!  Kudos for offering these!!!
