I'm wondering what they did with the barrel. A standard para barrel, even with the long FH, is less than 16". Wonder if they just made a longer FH, and pinned it on?
I would not worry about barrel, FN does know what they are doing.And if they say its 16 whats the problem, Also I don't run around with any of my guns and say heck folks measure this pleeeeze! or with a tattooed forehead saying I am carrying loaded gun.so pleeeze check any federal and local and state laws so that i comply with any and all idiocy. Sometimes its best in todays world to just say nothing about what you do right?And if you don't plan on buying SAWM249 anyway WHO CARES what barrel somebody my have or own in it.But I have the answer they took a shorty ten inch barrel and stretched it with new FN VIAGRA TABS....The gals will be pleased with all the new FN M249 owners.ha ha have fun in 2017 its all we got..RON K.
"And here remain with your uncertainty! Let every feeble rumor shake your hearts! Your enemies, with nodding of their plumes, fan you into despair! Have the power still to banish your defenders; till at length your ignorance, which finds not till it feels, making but reservation of yourselves, still your own foes, deliver you, as most abated captives to some nation that won you without blows!"
FN just announced today new web page changes, and all models on display and ordering info. seems to be better than the older site. and some good pic's.RON K.
That might take some time they have a lot of history to follow.And if you get one you will be buying part of that history.RON K.
