Default Stoner 63A1

Anyone ever heard of this machine gun? I was watching "Weaponogy-Navy Seals" on Military Channel and they were talking about this gun.

These squad support weapons were very popular among the SEALs in Vietnam. They had alot of configurations, they were relatively small and light, and a good force multiplier for the SEALs.

Yeah, Stoner, way cool. Supremo CDI points. Could be configured as SMG sized mag fed or SAW sized belt fed or anything in between. Few survived the war and fewer are transferrable. $50 grand + for a transferrable unit.

They said on Weaponology that they could be configured in as many as 6 different configurations. The shoulder stock can even be removed by popping a pin similar to an AR lower reciever pin. Looks a lot like an M-249 SAW with the stock removed.

Never heard of it. I thought I knew all the guns Stoner designed but this is one I know nothing about.

That would have knocked me back about ten feet when I was his age
