The FN M249S®, a semi-automatic version of the M249 SAW light machine gun, was originally developed by FN Herstal as the FN MINIMI® and adopted by the U.S. military in 1988. The rifle features the signature 18.5-inch FN 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 4.0-6.5 pound trigger pull out of the box.

Looks like it would be a pain in the d*ck to keep clean, but I imagine most of these sit safely in gun safes and display shelves without the risk of being used. Not everyone can be Matt from demoranch. I wonder if you can do a bcg swap and make this 22lr.. Now then I'd be in for two..

Be sure to stockpile these for pre election panic buying. M249s are the stripped lower of 2020

Now you too can look like Rambo when you go to the range. You just need to carry a couple of belts of ammo on your shoulder.

7000$ piece of garbage. As someone who used this extensively in the Marines, it's barely worth 1500$

It would be a cool toy, but semi-auto 223's can currently be had for less than $500. Rich mans toy.
