M-60 open-bolt/closed-boltgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Dirck Halstead : One Thread
I am wondering if the M-60 fires from the open-bolt or closed-bolt. I have seen both versions available for civilian sale and would like to know what the original/current US military uses.

This has nothing to do with photography or digital journalism. Perhaps you should go away. (Quietly, without getting your rocks of on a gun..>)

In my opinion, Adam Welz got it right ! A big leap indeed, from an M-60 to an EOS-1N...............

Well folks this may seem like question out of place, but as a photojournalist who considering going into a war zone, it's accually a very good question, as I think it's best to know as much as possible about the weapons of war that you may come across. And what to be weary of.

Although somwhat unorthodox a valid question. If your going to shoot a football game you need to know how to play the game right. I made sure i learnt how to shoot a rifle before i went overseas, get used to the noise, cant look like a patsy in front of the lads...

The M-60 machine gun fires from an open bolt. There is a semi-auto version made by Rock Island called the SA-1 (I think). It fires from a closed bolt design.
