The M249 light machine gun is the American adaptation of the Belgian FN Minimi, a light machine gun manufactured by the Belgian company FN Herstal. The M249 is a gas operated air cooled belt fed light machine gun chambered in 5.56x45mm NATO and is the primary light machine gun of the United States Armed Forces. First introduced in 1984 the M249 has seen action in all US conflicts since the 1991 Gulf War and continues to serve in the US as well as the armed forces of a dozen countries around the world. The M249 airsoft gun is the most popular airsoft machine gun with over a dozen models and variants of the M249 airsoft gun to choose from, this is due to the popularity of the M249 SAW airsoft gun as it replicates the popularity of the real gun. Notable examples include the Tokyo Marui Airsoft MK46 MOD 0 Next Generation (NGRS) LMG AEG, the A&K Airsoft M249 PARA Airsoft LMG AEG - Black and the G&P airsoft M249 Para (Upgrade) LMG AEG. Many of these M249 airsoft full metal guns will weigh and feel like the real steel M249 due to accurate metal externals.
