071-022-0001 (SL1) - Maintain a Caliber .50 M2 Machine Gun

Standards: Cleaned and lubricated the caliber .50 M2 machine gun and its components. Cleaned and inspected all parts and ammunition and turned in unserviceable parts for maintenance. Assembled the gun so it was operational.

Conditions: Given a caliber .50 M2 HB machine gun, M3 tripod, MK64
gun cradle mount, pintle, traversing and
elevating (T&E) mechanism, linked
caliber .50 ammunition, headspace and timing
gauge, cleaner lubricant and preservative (CLP),
rifle bore cleaner (RBC), lubricating oil
semifluid (LSA), carbon removing compound,
bore brush, wiping rags, M4 cleaning rod,
small-arms (2-inch) cleaning swabs, and a
wooden block.

Standards:
Cleaned and lubricated the caliber .50 M2
machine gun and its components. Cleaned and
inspected all parts and ammunition and
turned in unserviceable parts for
maintenance. 
Assembled the gun so it was
operational.

Performance Steps

1.   Clear the caliber .50 machine gun.

a.
Unlock the bolt latch
release and raise the cover (figure 071-022-0001-1).

b.
Pull and lock the bolt to
the rear, leaving the retracting slide
handle to the rear.

c.
Inspect the chamber and
T-slot to make sure they hold no
rounds.

d.
Place a wooden block inside
the receiver, between the bolt and the
rear of the barrel.

e.
Insert the cleaning rod in
the muzzle end of the barrel until you
can see the rod in the receiver.
Remove the cleaning rod.

f. 
Grasp the retracting slide
handle, press the bolt latch release,
and ease the bolt forward. Close the
cover.





Figure 071-022-0001-1.
Raising the cover

 

2.   Disassemble the machine gun.

a.
Remove the barrel assembly.

(1) 
Raise the cover group
(figure 071-022-0001-1).

(2) 
Grasp the retracting slide
handle with the right hand, palm up.
Pull the bolt to the rear until the
barrel locking spring lug aligns with
the 3/8-inch hole in the right side
plate of the receiver (figure 071-022-0001-2).

(3) 
Place the smallest loop of
a caliber .50 link between the
trunnion block and the barrel
extension (figure 071-022-0001-2).
This keeps the barrel locking spring
lug aligned with the 3/8-inch hole.

(4) 
Unscrew the barrel from the
receiver. Be careful not to damage the
threads or barrel locking notches.

(5) 
Remove the caliber .50 link
to allow the bolt to go forward
slowly. Make sure the bolt group does
not slam forward with the barrel
removed.

Alignment of the lug

 

b.
Remove the backplate
assembly.

WARNING:
Do not remove
the backplate unless the bolt is in
the forward position. When removing
the backplate, stand to one side of
the weapon to avoid possible injury
from the driving spring rod.

(1) 
Ensure that the bolt is
forward and the bolt latch release is
unlocked (in the single shot mode)
(figure 071-022-0001-3).





Figure 071-022-0001-3.
Releasing the bolt latch

 

(2) 
Pull the backplate latch
lock straight back while lifting up on
the backplate latch (figure 071-022-0001-4).



Figure 071-022-0001-4.
Removal of the backplate

 

(3)

Figure 071-022-0001-5.
Removal of the driving spring rod
assembly

(1) 
Push the rear of the
driving rod assembly forward and to
the left to free it from the side of
the receiver.

WARNING:
Never try to
charge the machine gun while the
backplate is off and the driving
spring rod assembly is in place. If
the backplate is off and the driving
spring assembly is compressed, the
retaining pin on the driving spring
can slip from its seat in the side
plate. This could cause serious
injury to anyone behind the machine
gun.

(2) 
Pull the driving spring rod
assembly to the rear and out of the
receiver.

d.
Remove the bolt assembly.

(1) 
Retract the bolt assembly
far enough to the rear to align the
bolt stud with the bolt stud hole in
the right side plate of the receiver
(figure 071-022-0001-6).







Figure 071-022-0001-6.
Removal of the bolt stud

 

(2) 
If you accidentally move
the bolt all the way to the rear, the
bolt latch will engage in the bolt
latch notches in the top of the bolt.
If this occurs, raise the bolt latch
and push the bolt forward to align the
bolt stud with the clearance hole
(figure 071-022-0001-7).
