Finding Some Of It

GURPS: High Tech 4th Edition gives a callout for a 15 lb., $1,800 tripod for the Saco M60.

I think the author is thinking of the M122... but.

From digging into the FM and TM...

Configured for the M60, the M122 is 19.5 lb. with the original pintle and 17.5 lb. with the newer pintle.

The M122 with the pintle (which is the newer pintle) for an M240G and M240B is 15 lb.

I think the M249 uses the same configuration as the M240B... can anyone confirm?

The missing 2.5 lb. appears to be an adaptor which is a hefty hunk of metal on top of the T&E that attaches to the rear of the M60.  The M240 and M249, judging from pictures, don't use this.

The M122A1 seems to add an 18 lb. buffering cradle (called a flexible mounting) to a standard M122 with the new pintle.

The M192 Light Weight Ground Mount is $2,250 and 11.5 lb.

All dollars are GURPS$, which may or may not reflect actual money...  An M240B runs $6,900 in GURPS$.

  1. I think the M249 uses the same configuration as the M240B... can anyone confirm?

    Answer to above is "yes" both use same, I sell them as part of a kit that allows M2, M240/249 mount on vehicle weapons turret.
