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) "box mag is almost completely plastic and will fall off easily but stays on most of the time. Box mag has three settings including off, auto, and sound control. the mag that comes with the gun is almost completely metal. The gun is constructed mostly of reinforced polymer though, there are some metal parts such as the buttons to open the battery/hop up compartment. I suggest oiling these metal parts with some 3 in 1 oil to keep them from rusting. Barrel can easily be taken off and put back on again. bb spread at 15 yards is about the size of a baseball, getting wider as distance increases (non-precision barrel). Iron sights are polymer but are quite reliable; I recommend a 4x acog scope. Bipod is polymer and does not touch the ground if the gun is equipped with the 2500 round box mag. I suggest a battery that is 9.6 V or smaller but an 11.1V 1500 battery will just fit the compartment if you would like a high fire rate; however, having the 11.1V battery will heat up the motor to where it is almost burning your hand.
-reliable medium-close range gun
-high fire rate depending on battery
-heavy-Ish ~9 LBS
-Really cool looking and feeling
-has no threads on barrel
-orange tip can break off easily
-very hard to high-crawl with
-small battery compartment
-not good for younger players as it may be too heavy
Conclusion: a well-made and reliable gun that has a realistic feel to it. "I've had my M249 Feather weight for a year now the only problem I have with it is the Para stock and inner barrel. If you can switch the stock and inner barrel for a tight bore inner barrel I would highly recommend it. I've switched my stock for a positionable stalk. I've also switched inner barrel for a tight bore barrel. I love it so much I am looking at getting another one. "My M249E2 came in, the stock has Tons of space, unlike the other varients with small stocks and no space the E2 can fit Literally any NiMH and LiPo battery on the Airsoft Market. I reccomend getting the Matrix 2000 Rnd Tan (Black) box mag as a replacement box mag. A&K Box mags may be unreliable, I have seen bad reviews from A&K's box mags but perhaps its a user error or it could be a manufacturer error. Regardless if you're looking for a replacement box mag look into the Matrix 2000 Rnd Box mag. Read More Reviews Write a Review
