I'm not sure how many people are aware of this but the US Special Operations Command has recently ( earlier this year ) adopted the short-barrelled version of the M-249 ( already in use by British SAS) except the newly adopted Minimi has a Knights RAS/RIS on it while keeping the fixed stock. All standard M-249's in the Army should, by now, also have a weaver rail installed on them for mounting the M-68 Reflex Sight or other optics. Jon

The fixed stock version mentioned by J Smith is the Mk46 Mod 0, adopted for use at least by NAVSPECWAR guys.

Could someone please explain to me how you get 2 kilometers out of this .22? I don't have ballistic software but I remember reading somewhere that at 500 yds the round is down to about the muzzle energy of a .22 long rifle. What would it be at 2 clicks?
