About the real M249
The M249 Squad Automatic Weapon is the U.S. Military designation for a sub-family of the FN Minimi squad automatic weapon, the name “Minimi” is derived from the French word “Minimitailleuse”, which simply means – mini machine gun. They originate from Belgium, and both are manufactured by Fabrique Nationale (FN) and it’s subsidiaries – FNH USA, is the American subsidiary which takes care of production of this gun under it’s M249 guise. It is a well-proven gun, and popularized with it’s adoption by many countries, including the NATO members. It came out tops in a competition set up by the U.S. Military in the late 70s – early 80s, for new squad automatic weapons, and the rest, as they say, is history.
