Not really, other countries use the SAW designation too. Most are based of the Minimi as is the M249.

I think it's either a tossup between the Minimi and the Negev, the Negev being lighter.

We use the F89 minimi here in Australia, it's not a bad squad based weapon. Compared to hauling around the old equipment we had, it's a breath of light weight fresh air.
