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) "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.
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 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. "This thing brings economy to the LMG field and does well doing it. The sack mags are kinda iffy, so just buy the standard gun. I'd recommend getting some stick mags, as this thing chews ammo, but that's cool with me. I'd recommend a triple stick 11.1v lipo with at least 1500MaH. Note that this is not an LMG gearbox, but rather a standard v2 with a proprietary hop-up.
Accurate groups to 50 metres
Easy to access hop and gearbox
The hopup is really fragile
Short inner barrel (could be a pro I guess)
The stock loosens sometimes, just turn the Allen key on the stock base to put back.
The Picatinny is really flexible
Front sight does not detach "Bought a bone yard Cybergun FN Licensed M249 Para â€śFeatherweightâ€ť Airsoft last week for $100 with free shipping. Gun came last Friday and was excited to see an M249 Para. Obviously since it was sold as a boneyard, the gun came in several pieces namely the front barrel, body, carry handle and rear stock. It took around 30 minutes to re assemble the gun with the help of my tool box for the missing screws and bolts to complete it. Take note all the major parts of the gun is included except for the screws and nuts and the magazine. Evike posted that the Cyma drum mag is already available and I just ordered one to complete the gun. Overall the gun is lighted as compared to other M249s. I have the Cyma which is super heavy and refuse to carry it after an hour or two. The good in ordering Evike is speed of processing the order, free delivery, provide delivery updates, all major parts are included. Improvements Evike should do are even if the gun came from the boneyard at least have all parts wrapped in newspaper, bubble wrap and for small parts placed in plastic bags so as not to further damage the parts. The box that was included had several big holes and I guess some small parts fell off somewhere from the warehouse to shipping department. It would be good to include the small screws and nuts for ease of assembly. A few screws and nuts wonâ€™t hurt the profit margins of Evike. Also add a schematic of the gun as reference for buyers who are not familiar in restoring guns. These suggestion is to show to the buyers the importance of their money, business and encourage more airsofters to try shopping in the boneyard. Lastly I now own another M249 to be displayed in my toy room and not played due to age. Thanks to all and stay safe. Read More Reviews Write a Review
