    Anyone remember how to impale yourselves with it when you take it apart?

    Leave the bolt to the rear, take off butt stock, tryand and remove compacted spring, impalement.

    Isn't taking off the trigger section first supposed to bypass the impaling?

    I am pretty sure that is the 50, but I am sure as hell not going to try it

    isn't one of the rules of safety to keep any dangerous part of it pointed in a safe direction; IE away from your head?

    On the last range trip I went on before I got out one of my buddies lost part of a tooth to the spring from an m-249. What made it even worse was we had been warning a couple guys who had never disassembled one before about that danger not two minutes before it happened. :rofl:

    Yeah the M60 isn't exactly a dream to take apart either. Launched a few of those fuckers into the roof when practicing to do the 16/60 jumble assembly.

    I don't think so... I don't see why that would matter.

    When I first started carrying it I would leave the bolt back once in a while... nothing ever happened, but I'm not going to do it again.

    Because if you take it off, wouldn't it release the bolt?

    the only thing that will do is cause a run-away gun if it's loaded...

    never said you would, but since you didn't know about the buffer spring thing and had made a comment about the trigger mech it seemed like you may have been confused.

    :hsugh: alright buddy....i know my weapons systems, i don't have to post on internet forums to find out about them. you asked a question regarding removing the trigger mech. of a 240 relieving buffer spring pressure prior to dissassembly. because of this i commented on the only thing i could think of removing the trigger mech. effecting during dissassembly, however it was done to a certain extent as a joke (no reason to intentionally remove the trigger mech. while loaded). however, the fact that there's no reason to ever dissassemble an open bolt weapon with the bolt to the rear doesn't make it any more wrong than what you asked about.
