    M240: Army tm9-1005-313-10

    Digging thru boxes I found an old M240: ARMY TM9-1005-313-10, MARINE CORPS TM08670A-10/1A
    July 1988.
    I don't need it any more.
    I would like to send it to some one that actually used one in the service.
    SO!, If some one needs/wants it they can have it. (FREE).
    1st Post "I WANT IT" and send me a PM with your name and address and I will send it to you.

    Ron, I just checked with my friend over at Google and he said that a M240 was a machine gun worth about $27,000.00. Now i know you Army and Air Force guys used to buy toilet seats and hammers for like $30,000.00 each, so for free, this is a steal. Just haven fun and blowing of steam from a long day at work. Could you please explain what a M240 is to an old Navy Chief please. Roger.

    The M240, officially Machine Gun, 7.62mm, M240, is the US military designation for the FN MAG (Mitrailleuse d'Appui Général,[5] meaning general-purpose machine gun), a family of belt-fed, gas-operated medium machine guns firing the 7.62×51mm NATO cartridge.[1]

    The M240 has been used by the United States Armed Forces since the late-1970s. It is used extensively by infantry, most often rifle companies as well as ground vehicles, watercraft and aircraft. Despite being heavier than comparable weapons, it is highly regarded for reliability and its standardization among NATO members is a major advantage.

    All variants are fed from disintegrating belts, and are capable of firing most types of 7.62 mm (.308) NATO ammunition. M240 variants can use non-disintegrating belts (following replacement of a few easily swappable parts). There are significant differences in weight and some features among some versions which restrict interchangeability of parts. The M240s used by the US military are currently manufactured by FN Manufacturing, a US-based branch of FN Herstal.[1]

    The M240B and M240G (see Variants section) are usually fired from an integrated bipod, a vehicular mount, an M192 tripod that is mostly used by the U.S. Army; and the M122 tripod (a slightly updated M2 tripod) that is mostly used by the U.S. Marine Corps.
