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adopt the M240B, the slightly updated factory production variant of the M240G, into its ranks to replace their outdated M60E4's. Throughout its years of service the M240 has proven itself, in all its variations, to be an effective, reliable medium duty combat machine gun.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.

"Love this gun, very good range, accuracy, and rate of fire. Gun sounds pretty darn good. I don't know why people complains about the weight because to my believe this is lighter that my A&K M60VN. Great gun.
"I bought one of these the day they appeared in the UK. Iâ€™d always wanted a (What we call in the UK) GPMG. Yeah, I know itâ€™s not the same, but itâ€™s the only FN Mag on the market and the closest Iâ€™ll come to having a real Brit GPMG ever again.
I used to be our teams support gunner and have been through M60â€™s (I even have 2 TOP M60â€™s, vintage eh, plus a few of the A&Kâ€™s and some very rare ones. Also M249â€™s in different configs, a couple of Stoners (Do defo buy a G&G Stoner 63 if you can, PKM, MG34, MG42, CZ, and a load of other weird MMGâ€™s, Ha, even a BAR). This without even blinking is the best EVER!.
I used it as my day gun and used it every weekend for about 4 years. I ran it on a 350 spring but that was the only upgrade/downgrade I made. On average Iâ€™d go through about 10,000 each weekend (I didnâ€™t say I was good, just enthusiastic).
I think I cleaned the barrel every month, the gearbox just once over all that time. The only time it was out of service was when I leant it to someone I hardly knew for one game, he managed to trip over a log, smash the mag pouch into a tree and shear all the holding lugs off. EVIKE managed to send me replacement for all part! To the UK! On such a RARE gun! I was very impressed. And she was back up and running like a bream the day I got those.
This M240 or GPMG or FN MAG, whatever you want to call it is LEGENDARY to me. When I die, I want to be buried with it.
The only downsides I found are:
You have to understand support gunning, this is NOT an assault gun.
Get to the Gym, this is HEAVY
Itâ€™s also cumbersome... Not for CQB lol
Awkward and silly to the max (You could do the same thing with an MP5K, massive external battery and huge drum mag)
Never Ever went wrong
You can load and fire at the same time.
Youâ€™ll get a good workout
You can stop an entire team assault, on your own, if you have the b*lls
After doing a â€śPredatorâ€ť style â€śconstant fire without releasing the trigger, until everything is deadâ€ť you may find your team mate who had to hit the dirt 3 mins earlier turning to you and saying â€śHOLY F*** THAT WAS AWESOMEâ€ť. Just smile.
All in all
This is a difficult piece to use, for sure. But when it comes together, there is nothing else I would ever want to go on to the field with! Have a FANTASTIC day :)
"Very good product, I've had this weapon system for 7 months now I still have stock internals though I run a 10.8v. I've probably had over 12 hours of trigger time, My favorite weapon ever.
