Any projects in flight for small gun trucks? M-Gators, M37 replicas, Toyota technicals?

My '53 M37 wants to be a gun truck for Halloween. For armaments, I'm going to be using Airsoft M60 replicas, which will (literally) take the stress off of any mounting systems.
I'm looking for good photographs of the setups of other m37-based gun trucks so I can start to work fabbing up the pencil mounts, pedestals, and pedestal bases. Appreciate y'all!

Sorry for the late reply. I haven't been on the site in a while. Lots of M37 pics in the James Lyles books, The Hard Ride 1 and 2, Have Guns Will Travel, and David Doyle's Gun Trucks and Gun Trucks in Action.

I’d love to find an airsoft M-60. I have a resin M-60 as a ditch gun on War Wagon. Do you have a source for them?

I bought a M60 and a M240B from Evike. Both are very realistic as I have the real guns in S/A to compare. You would need them side by side to see any differences (which are minor)

Here's my gun truck M715, I set it up with Ma Deuce in the bed and a M60 for the passenger.

I also run the A&K M60 from Evike and it is a great piece that looks so good displayed with the trucks. And with a quick mod can be mounted on a pintle.

That's where I bought the one on my gun ring. It is a very realistic looking replica. I tried buying 2 more from that guy but he refused to sell to me again. Never really got a straight answer out of him as to why? Ended up getting 2 from ironcreationsllc.com. barrels are 6 inches too short due to the replica patterned closer to the .30 , but overall they're very realistic as well. Good service from them too.
