Does any one know how i can make a dual M-60 Mount? i know that most of the mounts were built with materials they found in the field, but what can i use to make one? I have alse seen a few pictures of them but it doesnt really show much detail in the mount, the M-60's take up most of it.
Thanks,
Mike

Mike,
What you need here first of all, is some good pictures. I hope someone here has got some, or knows where to find them on the web.

If you can't remember, the Claymore is pointed towards you !

I'm not sure what you want to mount the m-60's to but try this:

The dragon IDF M60 has the dual 60 mount. It is shaped like a T make it no longer than the recevier of the 60 1 ammo can spacing .This makes a great turrent swivel mount this was used in nam with the early M60 A1

Hi Mike,
I think the M60 GPMG is adaptable to feed from either side.
