The FN M249S, a semi-automatic version of the M249 SAW light machine gun, was originally developed by FN Herstal and adopted by the U.S. military in 1988. The rifle features the signature 18.5-inch FN cold hammer-forged, chrome-lined barrel and operates from a closed-bolt position. Chambered in 5.56x45mm NATO, the rifle will accept both magazine and linked ammunition belt and offers a 4.0-6.5 pound trigger pull out of the box.

A semi-automatic version of the M249 SAW / LMG (in use by the U.S. military since 1988), the FN 249S platform features a chrome-lined, cold hammer-forged barrel, and makes the most of potential accuracy by incorporating closed-bolt firing, a robust gas system, and intelligent stock design. The primary differences between the two models within this series are the stock configurations and barrel lengths (which necessarily impact overall length and weight of each model; the PARA models can be stripped of their stocks and placed into a standard M249S stock in a matter of seconds). Both feed from magazines and linked ammunition belts, and are chambered in 5.56x45mm NATO.
