    Thanks. We checked into it, and I think one of the members is bidding on it. I'll check it again when I get in.

    I went back and went through IrAC's site again. I don't know how I missed it the first 15 or so times. Perhaps I was drooling too much on the .50's.

    Anyways, yes, they do offer a replica M60E3. As nice as this is, though, it is NOT a sim-fire, which is what we need.

    And, before anybody says anything, I did e-mail an inquiry.

    I have asked this question of both IRAC and Replicas and Weapons in the past, and been told by both companies that they did not offer a sim-fire version. However, I have seen (and played with) sim-fire M60's, so I know they are out there.

    I'm not trying to pick fights, etc. I am simply trying to get the best answer for my question.

    And, yes, IRAC does make some nice stuff. However, they don't appear to make what we need - Viet Nam era M60 GPMG in ground configuration for vehicle mounting.

    So, thanks to everybody for your help on this matter. It's back to the drawing board for us.

    Thanks. The sale is ended, but the seller provided enough info for me to contact him.

    I found a decent replica M60 for about $1,000. And, I think I found a way to gas it. Now, I just have to put everything together to make it work.

    Did you ever find a sim-fire M60 ?
    Steve from IRAC built my oxygen-propane M60D 15 years ago.
    He does NOT build them anymore. Mine is available to go to a good home, but the price is in the "investment" category, definitely not a budget-concious item.

    I have an M-60 dummy for sale. 100% real parts but for a steel IRAC receiver.

    $2100.00. Barrel is good. Nothing is a reweld. A functional parts kit was used to assemble the gun.
