Anyone have any info on this?  Supposedly a company called KJS Tactical is trying to get set up to produce one and market it.  While I like running .308 through the pig, I sure don't like paying for it these days.

there was a conversion back in the "old days." It was very expensive and not really cost effective even back then.  I don't know of anyone making one now - The comment was made on another forum, (223 conversion)  but I have seen no information other than "somebody is making it".    Back when I bought my first M60, it cost $3k, and the conversion was like $2k. Bought an Amelia ( SP? )  belt fed instead for $1500. Sold it for lack of parts.
