The channel was replaced, trunnion was fine. They replaced just about everything, the top cover received new components. The entire build/upgrade ran about 10K. That was in 2005.

There was no DO at that time, it was USORD and they were still located near the old rodeo grounds north of I-80.

BTW, the current owner of the RIA Postie M60. Received the LMG in 1990 from a SOT in his area...

 

BTW, I would assume you got a new E4 mod0 topcover as well since an E4 cam arm won't fit into an original M60 topcover (or even into an E3 topcover).

In retrospect, perhaps a better deal than what you thought...

This is what I received. Yes, I did get a good deal, no complaints. Considering that in the original configuration, it didn't even cycle past one round...

 

New op rod, feed tray; not sure if they used he same top cover. If a new one was needed, then they used one that was new.

 

 

Anyway, I'll post photos of the RIA when I except transfer.

 

Appreciate all the input as always...

I could not get them to reply to email or call back, i was thinking a E6 config I am getting older I need a lighter M60. 

 

I know the post was started of RIA guns, my dealings with David Reese back in the late 80's early 90's was great, I had one ran 20k rounds of (at that time $109 1k delivered from Paragon Sales blaster ammo) through the RIA the pin went bad for the cartridge guide in top cover he sent me a new top cover free of charge, I later sold the gun, I used that gun weekly back in those days.

Five years ago I upgraded my E1 to E6 configuration and the total was 11K.  They took the bare receiver (which was pretty worn) and returned a complete M60E6 that was in new condition.  If I remember correctly, the upgrade kit was 8K and the rebuild was 3K.
