Anybody know if FN will again ship the M249S, to distributors ?

I also heard rumors they will offer a semi MAG.

I talked to FN over the summer and they advised new production Q4 2020. I called them last week and they still expect to ship next batch of M249S shortly.

Well i hope they do i plan on ordering one from a disb, if i can find one who will sell. Last one said i have to be L.E.or retired Military my Marine status from 1968/74 was not good enough.And yes have owned a f.a. posty and a standard model when first issued. Sadly sold it to a buddy who wanted one.{REAL STUPID MOVE THERE} so want the Para model, if anybody knows a good source please post. and good to see the forum still going even under the new format.. And that i am still going after the Big C stuff in 2017. Semper-Fi RON K.

FN told me in October (2020) that they have no plans for more S runs at this time. I think their new contract has taken priority over everything else.

Know a guy that wanted to trade me his BNIB m249 for my Ducati back in summer of 19 - rough value of $8. He had tons of other things up for trade as well and I recently reached out to him to see if he had some fun things available for sale. Still has the m249, but is now $15 - brand new in box - no extras. This is the only recent thread with any opinions on value and future production I've found and the last post was 2 months ago. Thoughts? Jump on it? Offer $10? Wait for new batch?

There’s one in CA, never fired, no box, for $11k...$15k sealed in plastic for collectors sounds about right nowadays

I'd wait for a new batch in about 6 months to a year once FN gets done with their current USG contract orders. Unless you have to have it right now. $14k gets you an open bolt M240B which i've been seriously considering...now if we could just get a semi MK48 I'd be happy. But all the companies that make those aren't answering emails.
