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.

"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.

"Wow this gun impresses me everytime I shoot it, forget the fact this is a support gun and is supposed to be used for supressive fire. Its stupidly accurate. idk if its just mine or what but yoiu can hit 200+ foot shots out of the box (maybe more I only have so much room on my property) and might I add how accurate it is on full auto. Idk why it is but this airsoft gun should be the standard for $200 plus aegs. The rof is great, It hits like a truck (mine shoots around 390 consistant) and its stupidly accurate. I wish more guns were like this one internally. But the only drawback I found with this gun is how much I hate the para stock its pretty damn wobbly. I want to get a full stock but I bought a pistol instead however a new stock for this will be the next thing I buy. If your thinking Bout buying this just do it honestly. Forget the looks (this thing is very attractive) I would just buy it for the performance alone.

"Ok. Just used my featherweight in a game for the first time. Its a blast. Lots of good features but a few not so good things to be aware of. If you want to lay down some serious suppressive fire in a game but don't want the weight of a metal frame 249, this one is for you.

The pros:
Lots of firepower.
It can be used with the stock fully collapsed which is helpful if you're wearing a protective face mask. as it doesn't get in the way.
The quick change barrel makes maintenance and upgrades super easy.
Can use rifle box mags or MG electric drum mags.
The motor is fully upgradable and easy to work on.
It has metal parts where it's important. I.E. trigger, dust cover latch, carry handle and outer barrel.
Hopup is easy to adjust and maintain.
Did I say lots of firepower? You will burn through bb's with this one.

The cons:
The battery compartment is very small and limits you to certian ones.
The top cover is plastic and wobbles side to side which is a problem if you use optics. The battery takes up some of this play though.
The para stock is wobbly when extended. It's not bad, just noticible.
The bipod legs are plastic, but seemed to hold up pretty well during game play.
The plastic sights suck. They don't hold a zero and the adjustments don't stay in place. The front one can't be adjusted at all. Its injection molded into the barrel. Just use an optic.
