Tests were conducted to determine the suitability for Army use of a modified feed system on the 7.62mm, M60 machine gun. The modified system is essentially a modified feed plate. It consists of an extension of the feed plate which forms a hook that accepts a modified 100-round bandoleer. Approximately 12,000 rounds were fired from each of four M60 machine guns equipped with the modified systems.
