I spent a lot of time...5 years... With a m60. If belts are too long over 30 or so rounds the gun cant pull them in reliable when run and gunning and the belt hanging free. A good ag (assistant gunner) will keep the belt straight link on fresh belts as needed change barrels as needed and keep feed stresses ofc the gun while its being run.

If your feeding a belt fed solo use a ammo can or cartridge box to keep the rounds from flopping around.

Using an enclosed box makes running and gunning easier but reload times stupid long.

Belt feds operate smoothly at their best when its a team effort. A good accurate gunner and a good ag who knows how to lube feed and care for the gun under operation is deadly as hell and near unstoppable.

The ares is a fun toy but its a toy not a serious firearm.

Jon- back in the day, we added a C-ration can to the feed tray- rounded surface for the belt to ride over. B-3 can was preferred.

The round cutout in the reciever has nothing to do with the sear, but the inside length of the bolt carrier does.

Ok; I just learned something new. All this time that is what I have been told that little cutout was for is for clearance for the sear.

Yeah and I thought I learned something new there but guess I'm wrong.

So what is that cut out for? It seems there is no reason for it.

None that i am aware of. A full auto sear is the same width as a ar15/m16 hammer.



Thats a registered sear behind the hammer. You can see there, its not very wide. There are registered drop in auto sears and ares may be taking into account the various sizes of those contraptions. But an actual m16 auto sear isnt very big

They are troublesome. If your lookng at this you should focus on a ohio ordanance belt fed or a dsa belt fed. They offer actual working semi auto belt feds. OO has a semi m2 browning if your up for that
