Okay if your looking for an LMG then i'm assuming your big enough to be able to use this thing for long periods of time. but let me start out saying i am a big dude 6'5 and i can use this thing like a sword but... one thing i always have issues with is breaching doors... while lmg's are normally a sit and cover your team, moving from one place to another can be a bit obnoxious when you have to duck through doors, open doors, lower your gun to avoid hitting the frame... basically what i am saying in a nutshell is this gun is big and if you have never been a SAW gunner then prepare for a bit of a change in tactic. (for the better) now if you thought your guns were loud before prepare to be flanked... double-triple-quadruple teamed... because this gun is intimidating loud AND DESTRUCTIVE. keep your side arm close and watch the door behind you. easily able to hold down targets from 100 feet this gun is a monster with no loss of the word. before this i used a m14 kart so i knew what i was getting into when i got a Saw as the m14 kart is a 15lb gun as well. ultimately people dislike it in most CQB arenas, and it does work best in an out door setting where you can set up a "mg nest". so i guess its time to get into pro's and cons.

Pros:
great internals, powerful and can last even with stressed tested
sound / size... good for turning heads... be it allies or enemies
in the event that you have a A&K box mag malfunction (not surprising) you can always borrow some m4 mags from the nearest m4 user(cough cough everywhere)...
many modifications the plastic hand guard lasted like 40 minutes before i put on the bottom rails.
so long as the barrel is aligned correctly gun feeds efficiently with no dry fires.

cons:
not for small builds
inner barrel may loosen from the hop up adjustment... but given time you can easily master the alignment. and learn to eject the outer barrel sparingly.
the standard BI-POD sucks... barely managing to support the guns weight you find most of the weight being applied directly to the box mag (which if its A&K its plastic) its is nearly impossible to mount a good bi-pod using anything but rails but i found if you use one of the utg bi-pods with the tightening screw on the bottom you can remove the top and mount it on the front of the gun though one of the holes.

ultimately its a good saw despite the price.
