What are the rivals to the M249 SAW/ Minimi? Is the new HK MG-43 a good alternative and likely to challenge it among NATO countries? Are there any rest-of-world alternatives?

The best rival the minimi haves is russian PK light machinegun,and u cant really tell whos better,beacouse each haves fast barrel changing ability which is crucial on the battlefield and both are very very reliable weapons in all temperatures and terrains.So its actually the battle between SAW and PK .

although i doubt it the "automatic rifle" version of the xm8 might be a small rival
