Madsen-Saetter

Notes: This was Madsenís last military weapon design before they left the arms business. It is a GPMG designed for use from the hip, bipod, or tripod, similar to many such designs of that time. That competition from weapons such as the MAG, M-60, MG-3, and PK was its problem; the market was already saturated. It is built largely of steel stampings and pressings, and is a light yet strong weapon. Though the Madsen-Saetter was tested by several countries, only Indonesia (who produced it under license until the early 1970s) adopted it in any large numbers, and in 1960, Madsen decided to get out of the weapon business. One can also find a sprinkling of Madsen-Saetters in use in several South American countries.
