Browning M2 P.O.S???
 
I was not sure where to put this but, is the browning m2 a piece of s***?
I saw a couple videos of them firing on YouTube and it seemed like it would do a burst of 5-30rds, jam, burst, charge weapon, charge again, burst, jam etc.
Is this thing just dirty/poorly maintained or do they just jam alot?

not set up correctly. sounds like whomever put it together is either missing the correct tools or doesnt know how to use them or combination of both.

the m2 50cal is extremely reliable as most of the ones in current inventory have been serving since ww2...

I agree, there is nothing J.M Browning that is unreliable, that's a fact!

one other thing it coulda been setup by redjacket. would explain why its not running right heh

Nah, the M2 works great.

There are plenty of people who don't know how to work on Browning machine guns, though.

From experience, it's one heavy mother to carry up to the main deck from the armory. When it's the only thing you're carrying, it isn't that bad. The ammo cans aren't what I'd call lightweight, either. Still, 20MM and 25MM ammo cans are worse. Somehow I was always picked for those details. My Chief explained to me that it had something to do with the direction that the brown stuff flows on a hill and my position on that nasty piece of real estate.

Heck no it's not crap. But if the head space and timing is not set up right or you do not have enough CLP . It will not run right .
Next to the 1911 it's the best firearm out there.

Reliable as a mother's love. As said, headspace and timing must be set up right, does require lube.
