In the late 1970's the US Army adopted a new 7.62mm medium duty machine gun into their ranks: the M240. It was first used as a coaxial machine gun in tanks but slowly made its way to other mounted uses by the late 1980's, the updated model referred to as the M240C. Due to a surplus of M240C's the Army passed some on to the USMC. When the Marines got their hands on the M240C they installed an "infantry modification kit", thus spawning the M240G, the first infantry model of the M240. Having seen the success of the M240G and its effectiveness as a ground mounted 7.62mm machine gun, the US Army decided to test and eventually adopt the M240B, the slightly updated factory production variant of the M240G, into its ranks to replace their outdated M60E4's. Throughout its years of service the M240 has proven itself, in all its variations, to be an effective, reliable medium duty combat machine gun.
The Matrix replica of the M240B does a great job at capturing the hefty, tried and true durability of the real thing. It's made from heavy-duty materials giving it a great feel, and features some really nice fit and finish. The Matrix M240B stays true to layout of the real thing with its steel folding bipod, heavy duty carrying handle, a 20mm Picatinny optics rail, and the 20mm Picatinny front end. The quick-detach outer barrel system makes it extremely easy to clean and service the inner barrel when needed, and the hopup adjustment system is very easy to use. The Matrix M240B comes supplied with a 4000rd automatic winding box magazine that plugs directly into the main power, so no need for any extra, odd-sized batteries. The battery sits inside the polymer stock, which is built like a tank and very easy to remove when a battery change is necessary. Internally the Matrix M240B features a full metal, fully reinforced lipo ready gearbox, so parts are readily available here at Evike.com.

"Okay first of all, I like the gun and it preforms well, but the first time I brought it to the field to play a game it broke. Now you may thing that's because I dropped it, but I didn't. Now the plastic gear box inside broke.
Now that might just of been a one time thing but I was really disappointed when I went to the field only to find out it broke.
Overall its a good and sturdy gun but you have to be real careful with it otherwise it'll break.
"I bought this when I got back into airsoft after 7 years, follow my example don't let this be your first gun. It shoots well and turns heads. I've handle the real steel one and it stands up to its reputation even being a few pounds lighter. My only complaint is the position of the box mag. It makes it difficult to carry even with a sling as you can't let it rest against yourself. If it means anything I am thinking about repurchasing it.
"I love this gun, itís tough to ads if your standing but itís an MMG (medium machine gun); itís meant to work w/ a team and post up somewhere. My only complaint really is the charging handle feels really weak (quiet, wimpy).
