Machine Gun Shooting Info


Machine Gun Selection: (full list at Drivetanks)

Heavy Machine Gun: M2 Browning
Price: $120 per 20 rounds
Caliber: .50 BMG
Rate of Fire: 485-645 rounds/min
Effective Firing Range: 2,000 yards

The M2 Browning nick named “Ma Deuce” is a belt-fed .50 BMG heavy machine gun. It was designed by John Browning in 1918 and weighs over 84 pounds! The M2 is an older design, however, it is still in use today as America’s primary .50 Cal machine gun. It is commonly found mounted on tanks, hummers, and on the side of helicopters. This is an extremely loud gun that surprisingly has little to no recoil when mounted. It is exceptionally easy putting rounds on target, and can be best described as pointing a laser pen as you aim. You simply lead the rounds into to your target and can do so effectively over 2,000 yards!

The .50 BMG M2 Browning is by far the biggest and funnest machine gun to shoot at OX Hunting Ranch, unfortunately, our costs are also about 5x higher then any other gun!

General Purpose Machine Gun: Russian PKM
Price: $70 per 20 rounds
Caliber: 7.62x54mmr
Effective Firing Range: 1,100 yards
Rate of Fire: 650-750 rounds/min

The Russian PKM is a 25 pound, 7.62x54mmr belt fed general-purpose machine gun. The PK was designed in the Soviet Union by Mikhail Kalashnikov in 1961, and later modernized to the PKM variant in 1969. This is still the main general-purpose machine gun of Russian forces, and is used by dozens of countries around the world. It fires 650-750 rounds per minute and has an effective range of 1,100 yards.

We highly recommend shooting our PKM, over any other machine gun we offer! It shoots a larger caliber then the M249 SAW, has the cheapest rounds, is the most reliable, and is the funniest to shoot with the exception of our M2 Browning!

Light Machine Gun: M249 Squad Automatic Weapon (SAW)
Price: $60 per 20 rounds
Caliber: 5.56x45mm
Effective Firing Range: 870 yards
Rate of Fire: 850 rounds/min

The M249 SAW (Squad Automatic Weapon) is a belt-fed and gas-operated light machine gun. The M249 entered military service in 1984, and is still in use as the primary machine gun of American forces. OX Hunting Ranch has the SPW variant, which was designed to meet USSOCOM special operations requirements. The Special Purpose Weapon (SPW) variant cannot be mounted to vehicles, has a Picatinny rail for optics, a vertical foregrip, and a lightweight 36 inch barrel. The biggest overall difference is that it was slimmed down to weight about 13 pounds. The M249 machine is capable of 850 rounds per minute and has an effective range of 870 yards.

Carbine Machine Gun: M4A1 (full auto AR-15)
Price: $60 per 20 rounds
Caliber: 5.56x45mm
Rate of Fire: 700-950 rounds/min
Effective Firing Range: 547 yards

The M4A1 carbine is a fully automatic variant of the AR-15 and M16. The AR-15 was designed by Eugene Stoner and was orignally manufactured by Armalite, in 1959. Armalite ran into financial problems and sold both the design and AR-15 trade marks to Colt.

Colt made minor modifications and named the fully automatic variant the M16. The M16 was adopted by the United States armed forces, and soon there after deployed to the Vietnam war. The AR-15 name was chosen to sell the semi-automatic version to civilians. There are hundreds of companies today selling AR-15 clones, they’re considered clones since Colt technically owns both the name and trademarks.

The US military has replaced the majority of their M16’s with the lighter and shorter barreled, M4 rifle. The M4 has a 3 round burst firing mode where as the M4A1 has a fully automatic switch. There’s been numerous minor improvements over the years with many different variant names, way to many to discuss here!

Sub Machine Gun: Mp5
Price: $60 per 20 rounds
Caliber: 9mm
Rate of Fire: 900 rounds/min
Effective Firing Range: 109 yards

The MP5 is the most popular sub machine gun in the world, and has been featured in hundreds of movies! It was developed by the German arms manufacturer Heckler & Koch, in 1960. The MP5 is the ultimate close quarters sub machine gun, and comes in over 100 variants! (we demo the most compact variant the MP5K)

Personal Defense Weapon Machine Gun: P90
Price: $70 per 20 rounds
Caliber: .5.7x28mm
Rate of Fire: 900 rounds/min
Effective Firing Range: 219 yards

The FN P90 is a personal defense weapon that was developed in 1990, by FN Herstal. The P90 along with it’s proprietary round the 5.7x28mm, was created in response to Nato’s request for a 9mmx19 Parabellum cartridge replacement. The gun and caliber replacement was required to have greater range, accuracy, terminal performance, penetrate body armor, and weight less then 6.6 pounds.

A Personal Defense Weapon (PDW) is considered to be a hybrid between a sub machine gun and a carbine rifle. They typically fire smaller calibers at much faster velocities, providing better penetration and accuracy!

Watch our Sherman tank have it’s Browning .50 cal and .30 cal guns fired! (fast forward to 3.20)
