Asbestos Mitten

  • FSN
  • 8415-266-8843
During extended firefights the barrel of the M60 machine gun became extremely hot, which could cause the weapon to malfunction. The Asbestos Mitten enabled the assistant gunner to remove the red-hot barrel and replace it with the spare. Consequently the phrase 'don't lose that glove' was told to many an assistant gunner in Vietnam.
