    "1958 M274" posted up that he offers M60 replicas. Dont what they look like, but they're made of metal it seems. I'd take that over the resin stuff.

    If I might add, Id look for a M2 .50 dummy if youre can only afford/looking for a dummy. While I have a 60 and like seeing it on my ring. These things are so much better looking with .50s on them.

    Default Cradle

    This is the cradle that I have, which I believe is for the m60 correct?

    That's the M23 cradle for an M2 .50.

    It looks like it belongs there. While there's nothing wrong with 60s and 1919s up there, 50s just fit so much better with the looks. Big truck, big gun.

    You need the M142 pintle mount for the M60. Here's a pic of what it looks like, courtesy of BMG Parts.

    There is nothing wrong with the m60 (other than if I have to carry it). The m2 fills up the 'void' (for lack of a better word) better on top of the cab than an m60.

    And it looks more fearsome
