Dear Half-Mast,

There was an article on Page 41 of PS 767 (Oct 16) that said the M2A1 machine gun’s mandatory replacement parts had been eliminated. Has there been any change to this statement? The M2A1’s -23&P TM still shows these parts.
Dear J.S.,

Mandatory replacement parts for both the M2 and the M2A1 machine guns are no longer needed. The M2/M2A1 TM 9-1005-213-23&P (Mar 13) is currently being revised, and the revised TM won’t have any mandatory replacement parts listed for either weapon.
