Can a knowledgeable member explain what additional parts are required to convert an M60E3 back to E1 configuration assuming you just have the E3 gun and no other parts?

Thanks!

barrel/ bipod assembly

topcover

butt stock

foregrip

feed tray hanger

single notch oprod

 

Unusual question, everyone seems to go up models these days unless you are going for the "retro" look which actually is now iconic and gun guys recognize it just by the silhouette.  The nice thing about all the upgrades is that they are plug and play and almost tool-less conversons.  I'm still stuck at E3, but the railed top cover does have appeal.   HTH

Thanks for the Response Retro was what I was looking for (and the ability to swap back and forth)
