thumb|400px|link=The M60 General-Purpose Machine Gun (also called "The Pig") is a 7.62x51mm NATO machine gun capable of firing 600 Rounds Per Minute that John Rambo uses prominantly at the climax of First Blood. The M60 is mainly composed of sheet metal stampings and rails, and therefore is incredibly light, only weighing around 23 pounds.
Rambo hijacks a truck in a National Guard caravan and asks the driver what weapons are in the truck. The driver tells him that there is an M60 in the back of the truck, and Rambo throws the driver out of the car. Rambo rams through a police roadblock and reaches main street at sundown, ramming into the pumps of the town's gas station. Rambo ignites the spilled gasoline and causes a massive explosion that makes a huge fire that blocks the highway so no further backup can arrive. Rambo takes the M60 and begins firing the gun at the businesses on main street, destroying windows and walls. Rambo then turns the machine gun on the town's power lines and annhilates the transformers, knocking out the power to the town. Rambo then uses the M60 to ignite cannisters of gunpowder and bullets, destroying a sporting goods store. Under the cover of darkness, Rambo runs through the town and destroys the town's police station, running inside. Rambo uses the M60 to fire through the roof of the police station, severely wounding Will Teasle. Before he can kill him with the gun, Trautman stops him and Rambo begins raging to Trautman about the horrors of war, ripping the disintigrating 100-round ammunition belt that he had wrapped around his shoulders in half. Rambo then threw the gun across the room, shattering a window. The gun is not seen afterwards and it can be assumed it's been found by the police.
