Linked .223 Remington 55gr FMJ For M249
Metal machine gun links are considered “feeding devices” so if your state has a
magazine capacity restriction, we cannot ship links of any quantity as they could
easily be made into capacities over the limit.
Although the M249 is fed primarily by linked ammunition, it also has the capability of taking M4/M16 magazines. Ability to take magazines from the standard squad rifle is a plus as it allows their use should the gunner run out of linked ammo. To be honest, though, in a firefight, most troops aren’t gong to be giving away the magazines they’ve humped into combat and, arguably, they will be able to deliver more sustained aimed fire if they keep them. Use of M4/M16 magazines in the M249 also batters the magazines so that they may cause malfunctions if used later in a rifle. Also, when used in the M249, the rifle magazine generally will have trouble feeding fast enough to match the M249’s cyclic rate of 750-1,000 rounds per minute. In fact, the cyclic rate actually increases when a rifle magazine is used, as no energy is being used to feed the belt. Still, some M249 gunners seem to prefer carrying their LMG with a 20-round magazine in place rather than a belt.
Choose between 200 linked rounds with or without an ammo box with starter tab.
Ammo box is a used 200 round ammo drum for the M249 SAW machine gun. The ammo drum mounts to the underside of the M249 and securely holds 200 rounds of linked 5.56mm ammo. Ammo is fed to the gun by an opening on the side that has feed lips to help control ammo coming out. Ammo is loaded into the drum by a removable lid.
