"Can this gun take the standard M4A1 magazine? If so i am most likely getting one!

Webmaster: A&K, Classic Army and Echo1 M249 series takes M4 magazines. But they work best / feeds best with Box magazine.

"This gun is an exceptional m249 for the price. For 270 dollars you will receive the gun (which has the bipod built), an auto winding 2400 round box mag, a 9.6 1200 mah battery, a standard wall charger, and a manual. The gun is pretty heavy for an airsoft gun, but definitely not as heavy it can be. I am pretty sure it weighs around 15lbs, but i am not sure. The plastic parts on the gun are the fore grip, pistol grip, heat shield, stock, and butt of the gun. Even though they are plastic they are very strong and durable. Unlike the para, the MK2 does not come with RIS on the feed cover, so before mounting a scope or rds you will need to buy the feed cover with RIS. The bipod on the gun is pretty nice and is sturdy (at least on mine it is). The box mag is not great but it gets the job done better than a mid-cap and hi-cap m4/m16 mag will. The box mag feeds my gun which is shooting about 20+ bps on auto wind, but the sound control is not great. The gun comes out shooting about 18 bps with the stock battery so i bought a 9.6V 4500 mah battery for it which boosts it to 20+. The gun has a small/mini connector so if you have a larger battery you will need to buy a large to small battery connector form here and an external battery pouch. The gun itself is a pretty nice gun stock, but the accuracy is definitely below average. But this can be fixed with a new barrel and hop up bucking which are easy to install because of the realistic barrel removal. The spring and guide can also be interchanged easily. I bought a madbull black python 6.03mm tbb and a new bucking and the thing works a lot better. Next you may need to put in a little bit better spring like a 110 if you want a little more range, but remember the higher the spring the less ROF. The max effective range of the stock gun is about 150-160 feet. With my new tbb and bucking it is now at about 175 feet and the spread is a lot tighter. Overall this gun is a nicely built gun that feels very sturdy and will definitely intimidate your friends and for 270 it is definitely worth it. An M249, who wouldn't want one and the possibilities are almost limitless.

"Chun, Ive handled, (but unfortunately not fired) the real M249. The box mag is plastic on the real steel, and most likely lower quality plastic than the airsoft version.

Just ordered this, can't wait til it comes!

"great gun. it is very accurate and strong right out of the box. the only question i have is... can you put a red dot scope on this gun.

"AWESOME GUN! best airsoft gun i have ever owned! great for providing heavy support fire. and this also accepts M4/M16 magazines which is helpful between box mags because they take a long time to reload. I have owned about half a dozen airsoft guns and this is the BEST one by far! BUY IT!!! it is a little on the weighty side though it helps with realism. the box mag works exceptionally well and the rate of fire is pretty fair for a stock battery, though I would suggest a 9.6v battery and maybe using the stock battery as a backup. There are a few problems with the finish on the metal parts... some of them look as though they have been scratched or dragged on the ground and there are a couple deep scores in the metal =(... but the ABS plastic parts are very rugged and the scratches on the metal are only in a few places. I personally have not had a jam-up with the box mag and the magwell. a good idea when changing mags would to be to flip the magwell door open and turn the gun sideways so any leftover BBs will fall out. oh also there was someone asking if it uses 6mm or 8mm so just in case anyone is wondering IT USES 6mm BBS. this is better than any other SAW that you can get and it is priced LOWER! this is a very smart buy
