*Video added* Converting your SMG60 to readily available .55 cal

I didn't realize the terrible lighting on the video until after I d/led it to my computer. I'll try to get a better one when it's not 105 degrees out.

www.dobsonglen.com/smg60.wmv

If I'm not supposed to be posting a for-profit, please advise. I didn't see anythign about it in any of the rules.

So-

I've got my SMG60 successfully converted over to .55 cal. This thing runs like a raped ape. I'm currently having the barrel liner conversion mfgrd and waiting for the new 55cal clips to go into production.

I can't say it enough, this thing is cool. This is a childhood dream about 13 years in the making. I'm 24 now and I started drooling over this thing when I was 11 or so. I became known as the dip**** kid that would call the local pro shop and ask them if they had SMG60s only to be given the "wtf" treatment.

Well here's the deal, I'm going to be offering a 55 cal conversion service. Price for the liner, conversion, and clips are up in the air. It should be totally reasonable though.

Just so ya know, I don't really care if I convert anyone else's... More for me!

Great work! Savin' alot of arses with that mod. And I don't see a problem posting this here, I guess since it is a mod, it would be in the peramiters of the section. Though you might want to eventually move it over to the dealer section if it gets to packed(I don't see that happening though). Good luck.

Correct. If I'm gonna do one, might as well do several. It really doesn't cost a whole lot more.

I just wanna run a couple thousand rounds through it before I go offering it.

Nice mod, great to see some of these oldies brought back to service.

I think your fine here in the custom section as long as your not taking orders and talking $$. Once you have a price and the other details settled start a thread in the dealer's section, and link to there from here.

I added a little video. Lighting is terrible, but it gets the idea across.

No kidding. But even if they did, who cares? Now someone can actually use the smg 60. BTW, I can't get over how cool that gun sounds. Kinda like the MG-42's in Saving Private Ryan
