  1. All that expensive, 21st century, computer-stabilized, laser-aimed gear and what does it end up as? It’s a fancy trigger for an 80-year old Ma Deuce! Go figure!

  2. Hey, so Browning was a Genius…we all knew that. After all, look at all the 1911s, and modified Browning ‘linkless’ based handguns out there, not to mention the civvie arms that are based off is designs. Frankly, till they get the bugs worked out of the XM307, I don’t see any reason to replace the M2.

  3. By the way folks, it’s been a long 45-years since my pudgy thumbs have stroked the ‘butterfly’ triggers of a Browning M2. Any of you youngsters know if you still have to adjust the ‘headspace’ every 100-rounds or so?
