Item Description

Original Item: This is an unissued Vietnam War era M60 Machine Gun bipod contracted by the U.S. Military and manufactured by the Springfield Armory. It is nicely marked SAK and 7793010. Offered in unissued excellent condition!

The U.S. Army officially adopted the M60 in 1957. It later served in the Vietnam War as a squad automatic weapon with many U.S. units. Every soldier in the rifle squad would carry an additional 200 linked rounds of ammunition for the M60, a spare barrel, or both. The up-gunned M113 armored personnel carrier ACAV added two M60 gunners beside the main .50 caliber machine gun, and the Patrol Boat, River had one in addition to two .50 cal mounts.

During the Vietnam War, the M60 received the nickname "The Pig" due to its size.
