The M249 (also known as the FN MINIMI®) has been a mainstay throughout the U.S. Military since 1986, and is currently in service in more than 30 countries. The M249 SAW variant was designed to be used on the front lines where it really matters, providing crucial support at the infantry squad/fire team level by providing highly accurate fire plus the maneuverability to take the objective.
Now, FN is offering a true-to-form semi-automatic version that features the signature 20.5" cold hammer-forged, chrome-lined barrel and operates from a closed bolt position. Chambered in 5.56x45mm NATO, the Rifle will accept both magazine and linked ammunition belt and offers a 4.5-6.5 pound trigger pull out-of-the-box. That's right, you can get your hands on a belt-fed LMG, and you don't have to enlist to do it.
Do it. You know you want to.
