I've been searching the web and all I'e been able to find a semi-auto M60's, MG-42's, M240's, HK 21's, and an overabundance of M1919's. Any info you guy's could give me would be appreciated.

Yeah I expected much..

Current Semi-Belt-fed prices thus far:
M60 $8,000 (E4 $10,500)

HK 21 $6,500

MG-42 $4,500-5,500

M240 $12,300

M1919 $1,100-2,000

Do you think it will be priced similarly to the 240 Bravo?

I think Military Gun Supply in Ft. worth may have one or that may just be the kit price, around $1800. Might want to check with them on it. Yeah I just checked and it is the kit price. Would be sweet and cheap to run though!

DSA had a post-'86 DS PKM in 7.62mm NATO of all things. That begs the question WHY?

There is a market for them at the Nuke plants.

probably because they built it under their title II manufacturers license, mainly to have fun with at the range, but if they could sell a few and make a buck, why not?

I just saw a picture where the nuke plant folks bought a freaking minigun of all things... There would have to be a serious attack to need a minigun...

I've heard of several places gearing up for PKM semi-auto receivers with VLTOR being the only one showing a "proof of life" for their receiver. The kits MGS has are in very good condition and come with all the accessories you could ever want for your PKM including a spare barrel. Southern Ohio Gun has Russian 7.62x54R on PKM belts for $30-$35 a box of 250 rounds... Right now the getting is good so you better get getting!!!

Don't laugh about heavy ordnance at the nuke plants. I've known several 11B's who've ETS'ed out of Campbell who found work at Oak Ridge, one told me he has a nicer SAW there than he ever had at the 101st.

The higher volume of fire from a minigun will disable a vehicle or Vbied before it gets thru the frnce where it can do some damage.

More than likely because they don't use and abuse the SAWs as much at a nuke plant as they do in the 101st...

I see your point about stopping vehicles... I guess they should look into a .50 BMG then - if they can hit the space shuttle in orbit they should stop a car...
