Knob Creek ’13- An M60E4 machine gun, yours for only…


Yup, $40,000. And of course all the appropriate paperwork, tax stamp, etc, so if you win the lottery you can come to Knob Creek to buy some machine guns.

The M60 is chambered in 7.62x51NATO/.308 and the E4 designation is one of the more modern variants.

Perhaps someone will be shooting an M60 at Knob Creek during Saturday night’s fun shoot…

    I passed one of these up in the early 80’s for around $5000 🙁

    If it’s transferable $40k is cheap. Just the parts kits run between $3-4k. I still wouldn’t mind one in my safe, but I gotta imagine the maintenance on that thing is time consuming.

    Average price on these. E4 conversions are a huge PITA too!

    The M60E3 and E4 are what the original M60 should have been in the first place. Both are very good light GPMG’s that have successfully addressed the M60’s weaknesses. However, I would still personally prefer the Kalashnikov PKM or FN MAG58 as my ultimate 7.62mm GPMG.

      M240B also. That thing is a tank.

        When I wrote about the MAG58, I was including derivatives such as the M240B, which is essentially an Americanized and licenced MAG58. Sorry, I should have clarified this in the previous post.

    The most fun I’ve ever had with firearms was in the Army shooting an M60 at night. Worth it.
