'Nam M60 gunner impression, First 'Nam game of the year!
Went 'Nam G.I for the first time this year last weekend, had to take the Pig out for a walk....

Looking good :)

Good impression as usual! :)
How is the Pig doing?
It's an A&K?

The lack of eye protection scares me.

I guess the photos were not taken during the game... :rolleyes:

Those are posed photographs, he has those glasses in one of the shots...

Great impression as always Beastor!

Nice, a pack of Lucky's on the helmet! I give you high praise.

Knowing your reputation for great impression I'm curious as what is the make of your watch on your arm. Is it a period watch because it seems to be about right for a 1965 timepiece?

Nice! Our Vietnam game is coming in just over a month:) Cant wait to see the uniforms of both camps:)

Cheers for the replies and feedback guys, always appreciated!

The watch is indeed period specific Borealis, a repro, but accurate. Its a copy of the US army service watch (with a nylon strap for the jungle conditions) that were everywhere in Nam. I got my one for £20 sterling and its being going strong for nearly 5 years now.

Yeah, glasses were off for some of the photos, some posed, some in game.

The A&K M60 is doing very well indeed sHaKal, I had to replace the spring with a less powerful one and upgrade the barrel and hop but its a excellent support AEG: Lots of ammo capacity and range for keeping heads down! Thankfully the design is ludicrously easy to upgrade: one lever to completely remove and access the hop system and inner barrel, and you just remove the butt plate and a screw to change out the spring! Genius.

awesome, and your back is not too shabby either. Makes me kinda wish I went with the m16 and not m4. Didn't notice the watch - good eye.

Thanks for your response Beastor.

Will use mine for the 1st time next weekend. I change the hopup to.
Hope to get many VC ;)

Still working on my impression. Hopefully i will have some pictures to show next week :)
