The M60, officially the United States Machine Gun, Caliber 7.62 mm, M60, is a family of American general-purpose machine guns firing 7.62×51mm NATO cartridges from a disintegrating belt of M13 links. There are several types of live ammunition approved for use in the M60, including ball, tracer, and armor-piercing rounds. The M60 is a belt-fed machine gun that fires the 7.62 mm NATO cartridge (.308 Winchester) commonly used in larger rifles. It is generally used as a crew-served weapon and operated by a team of two or three individuals. The team consists of the gunner, the assistant gunner (AG in military slang), and the ammunition bearer. The gun's weight and the amount of ammunition it can consume when fired make it difficult for a single soldier to carry and operate.
Now that we have the info of the real steel version out of the way, we can get into the LCT M60VN which is also made almost completely out of steel! As you open the massively heavy box the M60VN comes in a few pieces. There is the main body, the barrel, the magazine holder, the bipod and the box magazine of which you'll have to put together yourself. First, you put the barrel and receiver together, as you insert the barrel, there is a lever on the right, front of the receiver. Once you turn that, the barrel should easily slip into place. To put on the bipod, all you have to do is remove the flash hider from the M60, put on the bipod and then put the flash hider back on. The box magazine straps into place on the left side of the receiver but only after you put on the magazine holder as that is what the box straps onto.
There is a lever on the left side of the M60 which lifts up the upper receiver and you'll notice and empty space at the back. This is where you store your battery and there is enough space to store any kind of battery.
The magazine box is very interesting. There are a few tubes that stick out of it. The one at the top is the feeding tube the fits into the left side of the M60 receiver and is kept in place with a screw once you've tightened it. Inside the magazine box itself is a place where you store 4 AA batteries which works the auto feeding system. There is an on switch so you need to turn that on before you run the M60. There is a pressure pad wire that comes out the bottom of the magazine. This is something you can attach to the left side of the pistol grip as you are shooting. Once you press the pressure pad, it'll feed the BBs into the hop up unit and then you can start firing!
Now that it's all put together, you can start firing! Carrying this around is no easy feat. It's mostly made out of steel which is why it nearly weighs 10kg. With an 11.1V battery, it'll shoot at a rapid 15 rounds / second. It's a suppressing fire weapon so it'll easily hit targets up to 30 meters away at 400 fps with no problem at all.
