FN America’s Military Collector Series just got a little shorter. And by shorter, we really mean expanded with the M249S Para, a semi-automatic-only, closed-bolt version of the gas-operated gun used by elite operators within the U.S. military. Fed by either belts of 5.56x45 mm NATO disintegrating links or standard AR/M16 magazines, the 16-lb. M249S Para has a 16.1" barrel and a collapsible buttstock with a hydraulic buffer, making it between 4" and 10" shorter than the M249S. And this gun is made by the same workers who make the full-automatics for Navy SEALs. See it fired here, and for more, go to fnamerica.com
