If historical accuracy is what you are after, you will need to grab regular M60 from Dragon James (USMC grunt figure), chop off front sights and remove bipods/bipod holders(?). HT's rendition is pretty good, but based on my readings (Element of Surprise by Darryl Young and Seal Team One by Dick Couch), I don't remember anything about specialized version of M60 made just for SEALs. Force Recon rarely used heavy guns on long range patrols, mostly M16s and bloopers (Force Recon Diary, 1969/1970 by Bruce H. Norton). I also read some books by SF soliders, but again, don't remember much about 60s being utilized the way SEALs did. Even today, SEALs are the only units that still use M60 as heavy guns on a small-unit level. USMC and Army did away with M60s at the infantry unit level a long time ago due to various maintenance and jamming issues.
