Squad Automatic Weapon, 5.56mm, M249
The M249 machine gun was officially named "Squad Automatic Weapon, 5.56mm, M249" in the US military. It is a improved version of the FN minimi light machine gun made by the FN of Belgium. In 1984, it officially became a standard issue machine gun for the US military. It is also the most indispensable firepower support weapon in the infantry squad.
From 1965, the M60 and M2 have become the main machine guns of the US Army and the US Marine Corps, but both have a certain weight and need at least two people to operate effectively. The Bailangning Automatic Rifle (BAR) was also replaced by the M14 rifle in 1957, while other soldiers could only support the firepower with the M16 rifle. Therefore, the U.S. Army hopes to develop a machine gun that only needs a single soldier operation, lighter than M60, and has better firepower than M16 make the soldiers not need to use M16 to make full automatic shooting to fill the firepower.
Since the 1960s, the Army tested some different design machine guns, including the Stoner 63 that entered the actual combat testing. Stoner 63 became a light machine gun of some US marines and SEAL teams during the Vietnam War. However Essence By 1968, the US Army's "Army Small Arms Program" decided to decide to use 5.56 mm for a new light machine gun ammunition, but it was not until July 1970 that the army finally decided to develop a new light machine gun. The new light machine gun is named "Squad Automatic Weapon (SAW)."
When the "SAW" plan started selection, there were three 5.56 mm -caliber -like guns and a 6mm caliber -diameter gun participation, including the Colt M16 with a long -time consecutive shot with a M16 assault rifle
with a heavy gun tube for a long time. HBAR (XM106), FN's FN Minimi (XM249), HK23A1 (XM262) of HK23A1 (XM262), and the 6mm caliber XM235 SAW (XM248). After the request to modify the caliber in April of the year, re -tested the new sample guns with a caliber to 5.56 mm, and decided to use XM249 as a light machine gun for the "SAW" plan in 1980. In September of the same year, the military direction FN It is proposed to comprehensively produce the XM249 contract, and it is officially adopted on February 1, 1982. The U.S. Army was equipped with automatic weapons in 1984, and the US Marine Corps was also officially equipped one year later.
The M249 barrel can quickly replace the machine gunner without a waste of time repair when the barrel failure or overheating. There is a folding bipod in the front of the handguard to facilitate deployment of firepower support. The M249 corresponds to the cartridge belt and magazine supply. When the gunman lacks ammunition and other emergencies, the magazine can be fired from other equipment M16 series or M4 soldiers. Beginning in the Persian Gulf War in 1991, the M249 was found in each U.S. military operation and war, most soldiers were satisfied with their combat performance and accompanied the US military to today.

And through the new GBB system that is separated from "BBs" and "gas supply", allows them to have a stable and powerful supporting firepower in addition to the mobility on the Airsoft field, and the GBB system retains the operating simulation and the field striping simulation features.
