This AEG might be IDENTICAL to another M-249's that retail for a lot more, but this is the best M-249 you can get under $2000 hands down. All the reviews will tell you so simply because A&K is the OEM manufacture for many the other M-249's on the market. Which means "better performance" and "better price". It is reliable, realistic, nicely finished, accurate, powerful, easy to upgrade/repair and super affordable (considering the not as good models used to retail for $1000). This is the ultimate Squad Automatic Weapon (SAW). The A&K M-249 Para is a replica of the heavy machine gun used by the U.S. armed forces in combat to supply heavy suppressive fire. It is equipped with a super capacity box magazine and is commonly used to secure an area or to provide serious heavy firing in Airsoft operations.
