Vehicular Mount

The standard vehicular mount for the M249 machine gun is the M6 pedestal mount used on the (HMMWV). One component of the pedestal mount is the M197 machine gun mount (travel lock). This mount also adapts to other vehicles (Figure 1-37).

a. To mount the weapon, the gunner ensures that the release lever of the pintle is facing forward. To extend the bipod legs forward, he places the front mounting pins of the M249 into the pedestal by squeezing the locking lever of the pintle. He ensures that the M60 machine gun adapter assembly is pivoted away from the M249 fork (clevis). He lowers the rear of the weapon so that the locking pin of the machine gun mount can engage the hole above the trigger guard. The gunner engages this part of the weapon into the fork of the mount and pushes in the locking pin.

b. To dismount the weapon, the gunner pulls the locking pin of the mount. He raises the rear of the weapon slightly and squeezes the locking lever of the pintle. Once the front mounting pins are released, the gunner lifts the weapon from the mount.
