Decent guns if you don't plan on hammering on them too hard. Price on them start at about $15k for a transferable RIA std config. Move on up to a SACO or Maremont and/or get the E upgrades and you can spend well over $20k easily. I know of one NIB Maremont that just went for nearly $30k. The biggest problem with M60's is the cost of the parts; a spare parts kit (std config) will run you about $2k - an E3 will be in the $3000-3500 range. They're fun, but the guns are expensive, the parts are expensive, they can be finnicky, and they're not built to take the amount of use (abuse?) a Browning can take. Personally, I've almost bought a 60 on several occasions, but I keep coming back to the fact that they start at about twice the price of a 1919, parts are about 10 times the cost of 1919 parts, and M60's can take nowhere near the amount of beating a 1919 can. There's no caliber convertability like with a 1919 either. OTOH, M60's have the 'cool factor' over the 1919, so if you've got a lot of money to blow on looking cool you might as well get an M60. I'll stick to the 1919's though.
