FN USA ANNOUNCES NEW M249S PARA IN BLACK AND FDE

FN America, LLC, is pleased to announce the latest addition to the FN Military Collector Series—the semi-auto FN M249S™ Para or Paratrooper model, originally developed for airborne troops. Building on the company’s unique tradition of offering semi-automatic variants of the most popular military-designed firearms, the rifle will join the full-size FN M249S Standard and the FN 15™ Military Collector M4 and M16. The M249S Para is the fourth in their series of classic, semi-automatic FN military rifles, and like the Standard, the Para is authentic to the last possible detail. You’ll notice only two major differences between the semi- and full-auto versions—the barrel length and reconfigured internal components to change the rifle’s operation from open-bolt to closed-bolt. Authenticity was critical in this series, and they changed as little as possible. The rifle features a machine-gun-grade, 16.1-inch, cold hammer-forged barrel, closed-bolt for semi-automatic-only operation, classic M249 flip-up feed tray, integrated steel bipod, robust gas-piston system and the iconic telescoping and rotating buttstock, making it lighter and more compact. The rifles will be available in either black or Flat Dark Earth (FDE). The guns will accept either 30-round M-16 style magazines or 200-round plastic ammo boxes.
