HK21E vs M60

Iím looking for opinions... wanting to add a new belt fed to the arsenal but I donít have any hands on experience with the M60 platform.
I have been around a few HK21ís. All of them from the 21, 21A1, and the 21E. I have the chance to get as true to a German gun as any civilian is allowed to have. A Terry Dyer built registered receiver swing down ďtrue EĒ. Beautiful gun, unmolested and unfired, except for Terry function testing. Only problem is..... itís new. So I wonít shoot it.
There is also a Saco Lowell shops M60 that Iíve been looking into. Iíve done all my due diligence. Research, upgrades, what to look for in terms of receiver stretch, trunnion wear all the common M60 stuff. Problem is Iíve never shot one.
Anyone here have experience with both? If I do the M60, itís getting a us ordnance E6 kit. The 21 will be a safe queen. I do love my HKís but the 60 will be a shooter and therefore more fun.
What would you guys do???

Shoot the E It has been fired and it's not real. Close, yes, but still not the same as an old original Thompson or Maxim. I don't think some use will change its value much. Heck, it's the HK that's easiest to bring back to 'as new' condition with a few spare parts.

FWIW, I've collected most of the 21E parts to convert my 23E. It's a sear gun though so was comparatively inexpensive.
