Light machine guns, like the FN M249, have been a vital asset on the field for years. Usually the job of lugging one of these bad boys around falls on the shoulders of the strongest person on the team, but today that all changes. This FN Licensed M249 Para "Featherweight" Airsoft Machine Gun solves all the woes of wanting an LMG on the field, but not having the strength and/or willingness to carry it around all day. This M249 weighs in at a reasonable 8lbs, shedding almost 50% of the weight compared to its full metal counterpart! Fear not though, just because it's lightweight doesn't mean it's weak and flimsy. The receiver and chassis are made from a fiber-reinforced nylon polymer that's constructed in a super high strength design, making this featherweight option extremely durable.
The FN M249 Featherweight has also shed some pounds by discarding the original brick-heavy standard M249 gearbox design in favor of a lighter weight souped-up Version 2 gearbox. Full specs of the gearbox internals can be found below.
About the M249:
The FN M249 LMG was born out of true necessity; a need for something lighter than the M60 while still being able to provide ample suppressive firepower. This lightweight evolution of the machine gun is currently in service in the hands of the US military, as well as over 75 other nations around the world.
Based on the FN Minimi, the M249 uses a 5.56x45mm NATO cartridge in a belt-fed configuration, supplied from a plastic box magazine. In a pinch, you may also use STANAG compatible M16 magazines in this weapon system. Over the years the M249 has seen quite a few variants, all purpose-tailored to individual's needs.

(Write a review) "Bought this on a whim a couple years ago. Wasn't sure what to expect, but for the price, I was enticed.
Externals: All Poylmer, but surprisingly, very sturdy(minimal creaking, flexing, etc.), I wouldn't go dropping it, but it's certainly not as fragile as ABS plastic bodies. RIS rails are a plus. Overall, this M249 looks very asthetically pleasing to the eyes, considering what it is. The trademarks are tastefully placed.
Internals: Uses a robust v2 gearbox. From what I gather, this isn't a common version gearbox in m249 aegs and some frowned upon it. But mine has been through multiple games with a heavy trigger finger and it has yet to give me any issues or fail. Spring on mine is putting out just over 300 fps with .2g bbs, it has a quick change spring set up that is easily accessed by opening the feeding tray if you want to swap it with an m120 spring to increase the fps. Rof is adequate with a 9.6v battery, it says ita lipo ready, but I wouldn't trust anything stronger than a 7.2 lipo(which for some reason nets a lower rof than the 9.6 in my experience.
Cons: the battery compartment is small and oddly shaped, greatly limiting the size and shape of the batteries you can use with this aeg(you're going to want a battery with a large mah for this aeg since it's an lmg). I put a battery bag on the outside to eliminate this problem, but still, it could have been designed better.
The box mag: while this is more a a slight against a&k( it's their brand box mag). I'd stay away from the 1500 rd nut sack style box mag they recommend with this gun. Right out of the box, the auto feed didn't work and the pressure feed mechanism could be wonky at times, also the clip to hold the box mag onto the aeg seems to have too much travel and it unclips very easily, which can damage your box mag by it hanging from the feed tube. I would either get the full size a&k 2,500 rd box mag(doesn't have any of the issues I mentioned above), or the MAG brand m249 boxmag.
Over, I'd recommend this gun, especially for its price. I've owner the Echo 1 m249 and the a&k m60, and this has been far more reliable than they ever were and lighter to boot! "I love this gun, the first thing I did was take the bipod off because it wasn't very comfortable and my buddy gave me a folding vertical grip which is a lot better. However now I need a sling for it because I get in engagements that last a while and I run out of mags fast (A&K tan box mag was crap) and so I switch to a secondary but I don't like having to put it on the ground. "So I bought the M249 Featherweight with 2,500 box mag. After some minor issues that I had to fix with both the gun and the box mag, this gun shot beautifully. Love the weight obviously. Can't wait to try in a game. Would definitely recommend if you are thinking about getting this gun. I would say go with the box mag if you can, definitely worth it. Read More Reviews Write a Review
