Are these really legal to own? If so are they available and how much does this cost?
>yeah, I guess
Seriously though, they're fucking worthless. There really is no logical reason to take a belt fed semi auto over a magazine fed semi auto, unless you're interested in the history or pure looks of the weapon.
But hey, if someone wants to buy it, who the fuck am I to speak on their behalf? It's their money, their reasoning. They can do whatever the fuck they want to.
Maybe he didn't, it's in line with OOW and US MGA pricing, but actually FN, they could have added 3k/unit and sell half as many. They are right in line with the semi auto 249 market.
Yeah I forgot about all the other m249s that you can buy for cheaper...oh wait there are none others! It's a collectors piece and is obviously not meant for faggots like yourself.
it might as well not even be called an m249 because of all the differences to the internals. even comparing them is ridiculous.
its like a replica, but its not an actual replica because it only looks the same on the outside.
IT'S NOT A GOD DAMN M249!
My distributor is saying that's the run-of-the-mill, no bells, no whistles model. They suggest an MSRP of $7800.
I'm considering one, honestly. For $6000 I'd get a kickass belt gun that would take my PMAG's. One belt plus six 40's is a doable loadout of 440 rounds of 5.56
Since people were waiting on fully paid Ares preorders for over 10 fucking years, I don't think they're very good at keeping up with demand somehow
No idea why retards are comparing this with an AR as a practical gun. The dudes buying this are going to be collectors with a safe full of Gucci rifles already.
The unit cost in 1999 was $4087. Adjusted for inflation, that puts it at about $5800 today. Of course, that's the price militaries pay when they order millions of dollars worth at a time.
there would be higher demand if it were affordable on a blue-collar salary. 4 grand on the low end to make your AR isn't worth the money for something thats just going to be a range toy.
there are semi 249s that are not made by FN but some other smaller shop.
they normally go for around $12-13k, but they arent FN.
The FNs from the FN factory arent available yet, they keep pushing back the release date
There are some of the collectors edition limited to 200 guns with lots of extras on gun broker right now. I was willing to go close to 9k, but they are all going to go for more than that. Last I spoke with FN, they had only released a few of the collectors series, and didn't expect to be shipping the standard gun until March. The highest SN I saw listed is 88, hopefully they have just released the first half of the collectors series, and there will be more later this month that go cheaper.
