Thinking of picking up a semi auto m60e3 made by Delta Arms. Any issues with reliability or anything? Whats the trigger pull like?

Prob not much info here with it not being class 3. Maybe another forum would be better? No sure off the top of my head.

I think mechanical they are different being closed bolt vs open bolt design.

FWIW the last semi auto m60 I saw was like $10k+ , you can buy a real machine gun for that price. Granted it won't be a belt fed, but I'd take a mac10, ruger ac556 or other entry level MG over a semi auto belt fed

Also you might want to look into a semi auto m1919, I've seen kits for like $2-3k and sometimes used ones pop up for around $2k. Plus there are a couple different trigger cranks out there that are a lot of fun. Set it up on a tripod and people of all ages can sit down behind it and buzz through some rounds, nice full auto feel at a fraction of the price.

But hey if you have your heart set on a semi auto m60 rock out!

I have had 3 different models of m60. They a definitely iconic. But holy crap lug one around for a while with a couple of belts and they get heavy. Fun for photo shoots and to impress people but I sold them all. They hold their value though. Buy wisely, play with it for a while, sell it and make some cash. I bought them over 10yrs and probably shot them collectively 2 dozen times.

Buy one, you won't loose money and then you call tell folks you had one. And then sell it and buy something else.

I'd suggest spending the money on a full-auto M60 and keeping it in Oregon or Idaho.  I suspect a semi-auto M60 would get old pretty fast.  I know that a full-auto M60 puts a smile on my face even after a decade of ownership.

What's the fun of owning a MG if you can't have I in your home?! I tuck mine in every night before bed
Plus there's a little bit of a price difference, like $10k vs $50k!
