The Springfield Armory M60 is a well-known and iconic belt-fed machine gun that was originally designed in the United States in the late 1950s. It is chambered in 7.62x51mm NATO, which is often referred to as .308 Winchester. The M60 served as the primary squad automatic weapon for the United States military for several decades and saw extensive use during the Vietnam War and other conflicts.

Operation: The M60 is a gas-operated, air-cooled, belt-fed machine gun. It uses a rotating bolt design and is capable of both fully automatic and semi-automatic fire.

Feed System: It uses disintegrating link belts to feed ammunition. The belts can typically hold 100 or 200 rounds of ammunition.

Barrel: The M60 has a quick-change barrel system to prevent overheating during sustained fire. This allows the gunner to replace a hot barrel with a cooler one to maintain a high rate of fire.

Rate of Fire: The M60 has a variable rate of fire, typically around 550 to 650 rounds per minute, depending on the model and configuration.

Weight: The M60 is a relatively heavy machine gun, with a weight of approximately 23 to 25 pounds (10.4 to 11.3 kilograms), depending on the specific variant.

Sights: It is equipped with adjustable iron sights, and some versions may have optics or other sighting systems.

Variants: Over the years, the M60 has seen several variants and modifications. It has been used in various roles, including as a light machine gun, vehicle-mounted machine gun, and helicopter-mounted machine gun.

Legacy: While the M60 has largely been phased out of frontline military service in the United States in favor of the M240 machine gun, it is still used by some military and law enforcement units and remains popular in the civilian market.
