The M2 Machine Gun or Browning. Its de is similar to Browning's earlier M Browning machine gun, which was chambered for the. The M2 uses the much larger and much more powerful. It has been referred to as "Ma Deuce", in reference to its M2 nomenclature. The de has had many specific deations; the official deation for the current infantry type is Browning Machine Gun, Cal. It is effective against infantry, unarmored or lightly armored vehicles and boats, light fortifications and low-flying aircraft. The M2 machine gun has been produced longer than any other machine gun. The Browning.
It is the primary heavy machine gun of NATO countries, and has been used by many other countries as well. The M2 has been in use longer than any other small arm in U. The current M2HB is manufactured in the U. Ordnance for use by the U. The M2 has varying cyclic rates of fire, depending on the model. The M2HB heavy barrel air-cooled ground gun has a Headspace and timing gauge rate of rounds per minute. In addition to full automatic, the M2HB can be selected to fire single-shots or at less than Headspace and timing gauge rounds per minute, or rapid fire for more than 40 rounds per minute.
Slow and rapid firing modes use round bursts with different lengths of pause between bursts.
Marine mans a. The M2 has an effective range of 1, metres 2, yd and a maximum effective range of 2, metres 2, yd when fired from the M3 tripod. In its ground-portable, crew-served role as the M2HB, the gun itself weighs 84 pounds 38 kg and the assembled M3 tripod another 44 pounds 20 kg.
In this configuration, the V-shaped "butterfly" trigger is located at the very rear of the weapon Headspace and timing gauge a "spade handle" hand-grip on either side of it and the bolt release in the center. The spade handles are gripped and the butterfly trigger is depressed with one or both thumbs. Recently, new rear buffer assemblies have used squeeze triggers mounted to the hand grips, doing away with the butterfly triggers.
When the bolt release is locked down by the bolt latch release lock on the buffer tube sleeve, the gun functions in fully automatic mode. Conversely, the bolt release can be unlocked into the up position resulting in single-shot firing the gunner must press the bolt latch release to send the bolt forward.
Unlike virtually all other modern machine guns, it has no safety although a sliding safety switch has recently been fielded to USMC armorers for installation on their weapons and is standard-issue for the U. Army for all M2s. Troops in the field have been known to add an improvised safety measure against accidental firing by slipping an expended shell casing under the butterfly trigger.
Twin M2HB machine gun during a Pre-aimed Calibration Fire PACFIRE exercise in May Because the M2 was intentionally deed to operate in many configurations, it can be adapted to feed from the left or right side of the weapon by exchanging the belt-holding pawls, and the front and rear cartridge stops three-piece set to include link stripperthen reversing the bolt switch. The operator must also convert the top-cover belt feed Headspace and timing gauge assembly from left to right hand feed as well as the spring and plunger in the feed arm.
This will take a well trained individual less than two minutes to perform. The charging assembly may be changed from left to right hand charge.
A right hand charging handle spring, lock wire and a little know how are all that are required to accomplish this. The M2 can be battle ready and easily interchanged if it is preemptively fitted with a retracting slide assembly on both sides of the weapon system. This eliminates the need to have the weapon removed from service to accomplish this task. All new products. Viewed products U. US MilitaryM2 Cal. View larger.
