So, a long, long time ago, in a topic far, far away there was some discussion about A&K making a reliable M249 GBB.

From perusing the book of ugly mugs, I came across this: https://www.facebook.com/632681066849687/videos/1518568768260908/ .

Looks like they're at it again and it looks kinda promising. ETA looks like 2018 :)

hmmm... on one hand, it's A&K, which doesn't have any experience at all with GBBRs, are known to use sub standard materials to begin with, it's meant to be a conversion for their AEGs (which most likely mean awful AEG hops), etc

On the other hand... OMG A GBB M249!!!!!!!!

That ROF though. Maybe they ought to have done an M60 instead.

It's adjustable...how do I know?  I am here at MOA talking to A&K.

 

Plus it will fit in ANY LMG that has the same mechbox.

Yeah, it looks a bit anemic when you compare it to a Daytona Gunned A&K M249.

If it's adjustable, couldn't they I dunno, match the real one for the presentation video? I don't think their intention was like a candid WE type of reveal shot in some random warehouse during lunch break.

Indeed.  Very odd.  Like Porsche releasing a video of a new GT car doing the Ring in 10 mins.  'Oh, but it can go faster'

if it was adjustable, they appear to have slowed the rof down to a level where it wouldn't gas out in that temp. It appeared to be struggling. It's a shame that TOP M249 that could use WE M4 mags got nowhere

Well one of the first things that's gonna happen is someone will release a HPA tap kit or tutorial for it.

With that and modified recoil springs, rate of fire should be easily achievable.

Nah man.  They use the A&Ks for the conversion.  Seems OK.

A&K Minimis weigh that *fruitcage* much they should be able to take a serious beating.

A&Ks bodies are sheet metal steel.  All other bits which are cast may be alu alloy and or zinc alloy.  Still A&Ks do last a while (steel front sight, bipod and magazine dust cover MUST be steel for it to take the beating.

 

Had a number of G&P M249s trigger housing disintegrate as it WAS weak pot metal.
