5 of 5 What More Can I Say, It's A Semi-SAW!!! May 28, 2022
Reviewer: Archmark from Texas  
Since I couldn't afford a full auto M60, M240 or M249, the civvy legal FN M249S was the best way for me to experience some belt-fed goodness. Arms Unlimited had the model and the color that I wanted, at what in today's world I consider a fair price, NOT the inflated, price gouging $12,000 that most other sellers are asking for the exact same firearm, plus sales tax & exorbitant shipping costs. I imagine that this will be the last time that FN will offer the M249S for sale, since SIG won the contract for the new LMG to replace the SAW. Once they're gone, they're gone & they will only increase in value. Get one while you can...
