SIG MG710-3 - 7.62x51mm NATO

The SIG MG 710-3 (Maschinengewehr 710-3) is a Swiss 7.62x51mm NATO general-purpose machine gun designed and manufactured by SIG. The weapon was developed as a commercial venture primarily for export, since the Swiss Army had already adopted the SIG MG 51, produced by the federal arms factory W+F. Currently the weapon is in use by the armed forces of Bolivia, Brunei, Chile, Liberia and Liechtenstein.

The SIG MG 710-3 is an automatic, air-cooled belt-fed weapon operated by roller-delayed blowback and fires from an open bolt. Spent casings are ejected downward. The machine gun is fed from the left side by either NATO standard disintegrating M13. When used in a light machine gun role, the ammunition belt is stored in a sheet metal container that has a 50-round capacity and is attached to the left side of the receiver. The feeding mechanism resembles the one used in the FN MAG machine gun. The quick-change barrel, ended with a slotted flash suppressor, has a fixed handle used to remove it. The MG 710-3 has a fixed stock, detachable bipod and open-type sights. Used as a static heavy machine gun the weapon is placed on a SIG L810 tripod. It is also adapted to use an optical sight or a night vision device.
