    We will probably have the discussion of black versus FDE now just like the Scar 17's The pic's look pretty nice. will put out what I think of it when it arrives.I have all the bells and whistles for the standard one already. this will be just good icing on a well made cake.er M249.RON K.

    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 have the same question. The M249 para barrel is 14.0 inches. FN lists the M249S para barrel as 16.1. The FN website and catalog doesn't say anything about pin/welding to bring the para barrel to 16.1 inches. I can't determine from the pictures if the S version has a longer barrel or is p/w'ed. The M249 muzzle device is cut like a compensator rather than the regular FH. Looks to be pretty compact.

    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.

    I am interested in learning and discussing FN's configuration for the Para model.

    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.
