If anyone can help I need an NSN for the Para conversion for the M249 (Shorter Barrel and Colapsible Stock). My supply SGT knew I was decent with computers and asked me to find a NSN so he could upgrade our pigs when we hit theater. I figure there must be a way to look this up but I am not in the position to question how he does his job.
Thanks alot,

What kind of supply Sgt do you have that doesn't know about FEDLOG or LOGSA?

He was attached to our unit right before we left and I think he is actually and 11 series. Just more National Guard BS i guess.

If you are going to mount a para 249 in a HMMWV gun turret, be advised that the barrel will not clear the gun shield. You'll end up shooting INSIDE the gunner's shield.

If you are even going to have it inside the truck as a backup, I'd suggest leaving the standard barrel in place. In the heat of combat, you'll forget the bbl is too short, not a good thing.

This is, of course, only if you'll be HMMWV based.

I had the para kit and just used the stock, it was a Godsend!


My little arsenal last year...

You can mount the 249 on the dogleg side mount in addition to the primary .50 or 240 in the turret.

FYI, both parts cost over $500 a piece. The buttstock is worth it, the barrel isnt unless you do mout an aweful lot.

Sure enough, if you are lucky enough to get that mount. We had one in our whole platoon and all that gunner did was bitch and moan that it got in his way...

The "Eagle Mount" as the common name is, just gets in the way for me too! I perfer just having my .50 up there, along with my drivers M4 and giving him my SAW (with collapsible stock and long barrel (just in case!)) for dismount. Maximizes the teams firepower, and allows me the needed room to move around in my turret.

FWIW,

That colapsable stock... stinks- Never felt right when I was shooting it...

We got one that almost looks like an M4 stock- works 100x better... if you have the ability you may want to look for that one...

The bbl isn't the shorty but it is the newest, and the stock is the collapsing jungle stock.
