    Very nice shot!
    Where is this? Difficult to tell… The gun looks a bit like an FN MAG58 GPMG, but it isn’t one.

  • It’s an M240, it was taken just before a patrol near Balad, Iraq. I was in an armor unit and the machine gun on our M1A1’s were all 240’s so when we transfered to Hummers, we just moved our weapons over.

    OK, if I’d read the caption first!

  • No worries mate.

    Ok, so it is an FN MAG, just with US mods to suit US Forces practices. Thought it looked familiar. Good weapon – you can do a barrel change in about four seconds.

  • Yeah the barrel change is extremely simple. Great design. Good simple gun.
