Very sorry for your loss.  I lost my Mom a couple years ago and it is just yucky.  I know it is not manly but I am giving you a big E HUG.  Even tough guys need them once in a while.

This is the pintle device for mounting the M60-M240B or other machine guns to the tripod. This is part of the T&E (Traversing and Elevating) components for the machine gun while mounted on the tripod...The T&E mechanism traverses and elevates the gun while on a fixed tripod and mounts at the back of the machine gun so the gunner can control direction of fire by elevating and traversing fire.. This pintle device mounts under the front of the trigger housing of the M60 machine gun. Mounting this on the tripod without the T&E mechanism makes this a mounted "Free Gun" so that it can swing left or right, up or down on the tripod without restrictions..

This device is also used to mount the machine gun on vehicles such as Humvees, jeeps, APCs.. etc..

Glad to see you back posting Brother...

Chris,

I will step back and let the others members have a chance to chime in.. These are rather easy for us being both infantrymen, our tools of the trade so to speak, so I will sit out the next one...

Smitty

   Hmmm, some people have short memories...  ;D ;D ;D ;D
       Great job representing Smitty!

Good one lads - the “Universal Static Line Snap Hook” has been in use since 2003 for all US-issued static line parachutes, including the T-10D and T-11

Locking Gate is safer that original Static Line Snap Hook; no need for a safety pin & spring opening latch locks the connector to static line
