Are you looking for the M60 Pintle that the M249 can clip onto? I have one you can have for $90 shipped.

Or the older M2 Tripod Soft Mount Cradle? $300-500 or more

Or Military Systems Group Cradle Mount for the weapon and ammo drum clipped to the dovetail on the left side? $500 to $1000+

I think the Post-Vietnam to 1990s M142 Pintle/Cradle we used to mount M60s to our M1025 HMMWV will work for the M249, too

Thanks. Nice assortment!

Looking for something like options 2 or 3.

Cantilever arm mount would be ideal.

I can fabricate the arm mount... but the cradle is the tough part.

I might just 'bite the bullet' and get an ORI mount. https://ordnanceresearch.com/m240-249-cradle/ But first checking on what's in the surplus world.

Cheers,

Still looking. Great exchange with Westboro... but I was a couple of day short, even though he was a great gentleman and had some nice mounts... My fault for missing out!

Still looking for a SAW mount with a box-holder, ideally.

Thanks all!

Cheers,

Sirhr,

How many cradles do you need? I might have a couple laying around.

Looks like I have a mount inbound from dirtysanchez...

He seems to have several nice ones!

Great G503 member to deal with!

I'll post pictures when it gets here!

Cheers,
