Our take: The A&K M249 PARA is a high-performance SAW [Squad Automatic Weapon] that is notorious for its perfect balance between affordability, performance, and reliability, with no compromise in between. The M249 PARA is a full size replica of the real steelM249, and is built using high quality materials outside and in to ensure durability, even during extended game play.
On the inside, the M249 PARA has been overhauled with a reinforced, full metal gearbox. Its high performance gearbox has been re-designed with an enhanced high-performance gear set and a new high-torque motor that has improved overall shooting smoothness and slightly increased rate of fire over comparable 2009 production run models.
An integrated bipod comes standards users will find it very useful in times of varying Airsoft combat scenarios.

Battery Charger Recommendation: Although this fully automatic airsoft rifle comes with a standard wall charger to charge the battery, Airsoft Megastore recommends the use of a smart charger to avoid overcharging the battery(overcharged batteries may cause decreased airsoft gun performance and may shorten battery life significantly). Smart chargers not only shorten charge time significantly (up to 800%faster charging), but more importantly,also automatically shut off once the battery is fully charged to avoid overcharged batteries.
