    I think the going rate for a transferable M2 is about $25k.

  • Ed

    Going with Nick’s figure on a transferable M2, that’s $50k worth of gun and at least $50k worth of ammo (at retail), so you’re getting an up-armored Humvee for $20 grand…not a bad deal at all!

    Damn. If i had $120,000 of loose change sitting around, I’d be on that like a fat guy on a pizza at a weight watcher’s convention.

    /drool.

    • heh, if I had $240k lying around I would get two!

    Steve,
    According to Global Security. org, about $14.5K

    I had about 9 of them on my property book when I was a company commander.

    They are a hoot to shoot!!

    here is some info for M2:

    it came out in 1933. pretty old, i know. its rpm is only 550. used in WW2. and has 0.50mm bullets. made by john browning.

  • V.I.P.

    ok, the firing rate is slow. it is 550.
    and the other countries that improved it made the firing rate faster, but i don’t know what they are.

    if you use the M33 bullet, the muzzle velocity is 2,910 feet per second. the muzzle velocity means how fast the bullet is moving. hope i helped!!

  • V.I.P.

    hey, guys, they also put the M2 on World War 2 and Korean War aircraft such as B-17, F-80, F-86, and P-51.

    the German counterpart is called the MG-131. It is a WW2 anti-aircraft and the russian counterparts are DShK, NSV, and the Kord. The Kord is new and it replacing the NSV in 1998.

    The caliber of the M2 is 0.50 x 99mm and the caliber for the Kord is 0.50 x 108mm.

    The Kord is better than the M2 in my opinion.

    visit http://world.guns.ru/machine/kord_01.jpg to see a picture of a kord and go to http://www.freewebs.com/historyofww2/50%20cal.%20machine%20gun.jpg see a picture of a M2. I am sorry if the websites do not work.

    “The caliber of the M2 is 0.50 x 99mm and the caliber for the Kord is 0.50 x 108mm.”

    No, it most certainly isn’t. Those 0.50’s are in inches and not in millimeters! The correct calibers in metric form are 12.7x99mm and 12.7x108mm.
