Some shooters look for guns that they can keep at home or carry with them for self-defense. Others thrive on buying guns they can shoot competitively, looking to become the absolute best they can be. Still others just collect firearms, looking for models that they can use as show pieces. Regardless of the reason you own, there is no substitute for a good-looking gun and this FN Herstal M249S definitely fulfills that requirement.
Built to be a perfect reproduction of the M249 light machinegun but intended for the civilian marketplace, this model starts by offering a semi-auto action that will accept rounds from a magazine or belt-fed system. It is equipped with a 20.5” cold hammer-forged chrome-lined barrel, which operates flawlessly from a closed-bolt position. Chambered in 5.56 NATO, it will deliver consistent accuracy with every shot you take. The 4.5-6.5 lb. trigger pull out of the box ensures you maintain a good grouping while the ergonomic buttstock uses a hydraulic recoil buffer system to make shooting easy.
When you really want to get a SAW and nothing else will quite cut it, this M249 is definitely the way to go.
