    No f’n( did you see what I did there?) way

    At :48 seconds, there was three paragraphs of white legal type on the blue screen. Couldn’t read any of it.

    • KP says:

      The first paragraph is about the photos and video used and describes FN’s market (which includes commercial.) The second paragraph is about how FN reserves the right to make changes to the product and that what you see in the ad isn’t necessarily what you get if they make improvements or modifications. The third paragraph is about how you’re not allowed to reproduce any part of their video.

      I checked to make sure there’s no big catch. There’s none. At least not listed out here.

    I dont understand why anybody would want a semi auto version of a 249

    • Geoff says:

      Because it’ll look kick ass on someone’s “gun room” wall

    • AbnMedOps says:

      Re-enactors? So they can re-enact whatever war we were in last week..?

    • kris says:

      So when they are 80 they can tell the grand kids it’s what they had in Iraq.

    • Disco says:

      Why? Because we CAN.
      Because it will upset hippies.
      Full auto would make sense, yes. But you just KNOW this will infuriate a liberal congressman and that virtue alone justifies its existence

      • Strike-Hold says:

        Ha ha – bingo!

        I can hear the weeping and gnashing of teeth at Bloomburg’s HQ right now – and the grinding sound of pencils being sharpened as they hastily draft new legislation to limit the size of belts to 10-rounds… LMAO!!

      ‘Squatches…. Just… takes the fight right out of ’em.

    • mike says:

      You think 30rd magazines make Liberals grumpy? Check out my 1,000rd belt!

    • Brett says:

      It’s like Ohio Ordinance’s semi BARs. Nice to have, hold and shoot, relatively affordable (compared to a Class 3) but there’s just something emasculating about semi-auto versions of full-auto hardware.

  4. Paul says:

    Coming soon, “The Art of the Dynamic SAW” in 3…2…1…

    Still want one though.

  5. James says:

    Way to go FNH for stepping up and offering what the market claims they want.

    I.e. as close to real deal military firearms as the masses can legally own. Especially knowing that a belt fed death machine with the shoulder thing that goes up is going to catch you some heat.

    Now give me the 240s and ak5c

  6. PatrickPM says:

    Needs bump fire stock?

  7. Jeremy Allred says:

    Screw the M249S, I want either an M240S or Mk48 MOD1S. Still, this being FN, it’s going to cost you an arm, a leg, a testicle, AND your first born child.

  8. bulldog76 says:

    Yo slide fire make a stock for this plz…

  9. jose says:

    Oh.. That would go well with my old TA-50, Jungle boots, Alice Pack..

  10. That Blue Falcon says:

    Fully-auto, the SAW is pretty useful. In semi auto, what does it do that an AR15 doesn’t?

    For those who want cool stuff on their wall, however, I can see the appeal. Me, personally, I never liked carrying it and while it does unleash a large amount of firepower at once (if you’ve got the box mag), I hated using it with blanks, magazines, or for long periods of time without lube or cleaning.

  11. Huch says:

    For us CA folk, do you need a bullet button if it’s belt-fed? Never mind, I’m sure it’s fine without one…

    • Doc K says:

      Yeah you need a BB or make it featureless.

    • KP says:

      You’d have to see what the interpretation of that the belt is. The belt is not a detachable magazine, though the ammo box may be. The magazine adapter probably counts though.

  12. m5 says:

    Nah, I think I’ll pass this one on and wait for the real deal, the semi-auto minigun!
