"it's a great add on to my Classic Army M249. I'm very glad to say that it's the best part to get for a M249 if you don't have a scope rail on yours.



Pros:
good solid feel
full metal
no modification needed to fit a Classic Army
easy installation
looks very cool
uses the stock iron sights
and the best part i think about it is that it comes with everything on it all you need to put it on is the iron sight and the original hardware from the original gun

Cons:
no instructions on how to install (but pretty straight forward and very easy)

"Just got mines today. Awesome cover. It came wrapped in Bubble wrap, lol. I put it on my CA, now I need a Elcan. I have an ACOG but I prefer the ELCAN. Or maybe an EOtech.

"Great rail cover! Just what I was looking for. Fits my A&K perfectly! Good buy if you want to add scope to your M249 or need a replacement Metal feed cover.

"Got this for my A&K m249 Mk2 the moment I saw it was in stock. Now that it's installed, its fantastic, but it took some work to get it to fit. Be prepared to spend a little extra time with a dremel if you have an A&K m249.

Since I have yet to see a guide anywhere online on how to remove the old feed cover, and install a new one, here is very simple tips to point you in the right direction. On the pin holding the feedcover on, there is a hidden little E-clip (or M-clip, or W-clip, im not sure what its called) over on the left side, touching the spring-like thing. Pop it off (dont lose it!! and there might be another somewhere else on the pin), and the pin comes out and the feed cover and other stuff falls right off.

The feed cover did not fit my A&K without some modification (hence 4 stars). I had to grind the left hinge tab down with a heavy grinder, like the kind used to sharpen lawnmower blades. A dremel will work just fine, with the right bit. Once ground down to size, simply put it all together as it was before. make sure the e-clip lines up with the grove otherwise it wont fit on the pin. without the e-clip, the pin will fall out on its own.

The fact that it needed a little modification to fit prevents 5 stars. Also, the rail itself was too wide for one of my red dot sights with a quick detach mechanism, so be warned. It fit sights with conventional attachment types without problem. Dont let the negative feedback fool you. once i got it on, i was very pleased. I would highly recommend to anyone who doesnt like the iron sights. plus, with a red dot sight on, the m249 looks pretty cool.

I apologize for lack of detail. this was only to provide some basic tips on what you need to do. This is already a long review, and i didnt want it to be any longer than absolutely neccessary. Hope it helps someone figure it out

"The cover I received had o marking on it what so ever which is exactly what I wanted since my A&K M249 had some ugly UK importers markings. It was also better quality that the A&K cover.

However... The design for the latch on the cover was different and now the spring and latches do not work properly to keep it closed. I have to give this a low score.
