||This gun is one hundred times better than an A&K. I would know. I have a CA249p, A&K M249 mkII, A&K MK46, and a A&K M60e4. This gun has better internals then them all. Honestly you can run this bad boy out of the box for years an not have to do anything to the internals where if you get an A&K m249 you need to get a new hop up bucking or hop up unit in general and sometimes even more. This gun costs more yes but it is the best bang for your buck!
Full metal (better trademarks and looks than other brands)
Better internals than other brands
Shoots 330-360fps out of the box
Has a decent rate of 18-20 bps out of the box
Heavy Realistic Weight (can be a con)
No need for upgrades until it brakes. (Mine has not broken, been over 6 years and it is used at least five times a month)
Box Magazine is a piece of poop. Buy the A&K box mag from here and use that one.
(A&K box magazines can wobble in most 249 series guns. to solve this problem get a piece of card board or a yugioh/magic card. Fold it once or twice and stuff it in the area between the gun an box magazine to stop the wobble.)
Final Review: If you want to purchase a M249 "Para" Model then Classic Army is the way to go!
Grab a new A&K box magazine and then rain bullets onto the enemy!
