M2, without a doubt. Hated the M85. Hated, hated, hated it.

240 coax is also awesome.

who in the hell is the 73/219 fan????????? The most fun I have had in my military career was with a bunch of 219s and a band saw. I always thought the Chauchat was the absolute turd until I met the 73 and "upgraded" 219. Common fix in A3s involved pieces of 2x4 and bailing wire. The Israels shitcanned both the 219s and the 85s as soon as they hit the ground

While it did not have the greatest rep.. when it was working, it was awesome to fire... and took a Mans Man to put it up in the Cupola and get the pins in... what a beast... but it had fixed head space with a quick change barrel... that was not going to be changed fast...The High fate of fire was for Aircraft and low rate of fire was for ground targets... used a different link then the M2 (not the smartest idea).

in its cupola config I don't think you could call that quick change.

That's the cleanest god-damned plennum chamber I've ever seen. Although your AP link chute needs to be poking a bit further out so the links don't bind, IMHO.

And that spare barrel will do a number on your left big toe when it slips out of your hand while checking it out of the arms room. FYI, Corcoran jump boots have no protection against dropped barrels. My toe still clicks when I manually bend it, and it doesn't bend on its own any longer.
