From the gunner: " This was filmed in the Sangin Valley during Feb/March of 2011 by Marine Reservists out of Texas supporting 2nd Recon and 3rd Battalion, 5th Marines. We'd been in country for only a few weeks at the time of filming."

    I have never seen a M-2 jamming so bad. Every two to three rounds.

    Yeah, it's called head space and timing....this is an obvious timing issue. Thought the Marines were better than that...

    NOTE to users of the .50 Cal...It loves OIL...NOT just a patch with some oil on it...HINT: Spray a little oil on the ammunition....I was considered at one time a MASTER with the ole girl Ma Deauce..It also loves 7-10 round burst..not 2-3...Keep it up guys I wish I could be there with you to gift out some of those .50 Cal shells to the bad huys

    From experience in 'Nam, Besides proper Head-space and timing, the Ma Deuce loved oil, We always had a big pump oiler with motor oil and liberally oiled the hell out of the action and the ammo during operation. Of course it was a Jungle and we didn't have quite the dust problem that you guys are having. Just my 2 cents worth. Sgt. Bob Clark, 2/2 Inf. (Mech), Big Red One, LaiKhe Vietnam, 1967-1968

    Looks to me like the weapon he was using was a piece of junk. He seldom sustained automatic fire beyond three to five rounds.

    Check your head space and timing before you take off

    I have to agree, i have never delt with a browning that has ever jammed up as much as this one.When i was in Afganistan i used the 50 cal only about to or three times. We did use that oiling the ammo trick to get it to work, worked sometimes, sometimes not. Don't know what the hell is wrong with their's but all of my platoon's weapons worked perfectly.

    We seem to be s great at weapons and new technology and then have to send the troops in with archaic stuff all the time, waste ammo and have a hard time offing one guy.

    To bad they don't have a MK 19. I loved that gun. That 50 probably needs a good wipe down, lube and H&T.
