A&K releases their rendition of the M249 MKII squad automatic weapon (SAW) to the airsoft market. Weighing in at 15 lbs, this full metal SAW is built from a solid and durable metal frame with nylon fiber hand guards, stock, motor grip, and comes with a foldable front carry handle. The handguard is molded around a fold-away steel bipod which makes this SAW quick and easy to deploy on the field. The auto-winding box magazine carries a staggering 2,400 BBs that winds automatically and is also triggered by sound. The A&K M249 is also takes Tokyo Marui-compatible magazines. Internally, the A&K M249's gearbox features 8mm metal bushings and hardened gears for sustained suppressing fire. Furthermore, the A&K gearbox features a quick-change spring system for easily changing the FPS on the field when necessary. The firing modes for this version of the 249 are full-auto and safe. A&K installed a high-torque motor allowing this AEG to pull a heavier spring for greater FPS. The inner barrel is 509mm long for greater accuracy over longer distances. When holding your ground against the enemy team, look no further than A&K's M249 MKII!
So I just received this gun a few days ago and I'm in love! Out of the box there was only one problem and it was the front sight was off. That was a quick easy fix with an Allan wrench so that wasn't really a problem I guess. If your gonna buy this gun, u better be a bigger guy cause this is for one. I'm 6'5" 220 and this thing is still big. The battery it comes with is a 9.6v so the rof is fast which is needed if your covering your squad. The gun is very durable and could take a beating no problem. I put in a m120 spring in it (which only takes like 1 min) and it definitely helped the accuracy and fps. I haven't chronoed it yet but id say it's about 440 fps. The barrel can be changed very easily too. It's as well a 2 min replacement. If your looking for a support weapon I'd definitely recommend this. About to be going to an event with this gun and I think it's gonna hold up very well! For $320 this is a steal. With the box mag filled it's about 17-19 pounds I'd say. If your gonna buy it u better start working out. Your gonna need it. McCoy Murray
