I'm a backup armorer at my company (companies only have backups... real armorers are at battallion only... and my MOS is NBC) and those M249s (we call them K-3s) are a b1tch. We have like 4 out of 18 that actually are 100% fit to go. And because we're on some damn island the maintenance support we get to get them back into shape just isn't here. They break down faster than we can fix them.
