Externally, the M249 GBB machine gun by VFC has all the correct markings in all the corresponding areas of the gun. Also, this M249 is of full metal construction, as it's mostly made of aluminum alloy, why not steel you might ask? This is done so to make this gun extra lightweight, allowing it to be more skirmish friendly as lugging around a full steel M249 is quite a chore, to say the least. But, this is the production version, who knows, maybe VFC would make a deluxe version like they always do and have one in the future in full steel. However, it is still very robust and feels very solid like every other GBB made by VFC as all the essential weight and bearing parts are made of steel. Other than the markings and build quality, being a GBB, most airsofters would expect peak realism even in how it takes down, the VFC M249 gas airsoft machinegun takes down very similarly to the real steel one, making it very realistic and ideal for those who are interested in knowing how to field strip and disassemble an actual M249 LMG.

Internally, the VFC M249 airsoft LMG, unlike most conventional gas airsoft guns, has its gas reservoir and BB magazine in separate areas as the gas is held solely in the M4 / AR15 magazine-style gas tank and the actual BB magazine is a lightweight polymer magazine that you insert into the top cover of the feed tray. This is done so to allow the M249 to have an ease of operation while keeping things realistic as lugging around a few supposed 100-round drums could be an issue but carrying a few real cap magazines isn't. You could carry a bunch of polymer magazines and a green gas can when running this gun and it will not weigh more than carrying a bunch of M4 / AR-15 style airsoft gas magazines. To keep things realistic, it would require you to lift the top cover every time you reload. The gun out of the box shoots quite consistently and accurately and could do so with heavier BBs as well such as 0.3 gram BBs, this is proven by 4UAD SmartAirsoft, check out their sneak peek video here!

So, what is it like to shoot it? With its lightweight construction, the VFC M249 gas airsoft rifle only weights around 4 KGs with the M4 / AR 15 style magazine gas reservoir on, making it easy to shoulder and have less shooter's fatigue when lugging it for a period of time, unlike most existing airsoft M249. The felt recoil is great and the dummy ammo belt vibrates as well, increasing the immersive realism when operating the VFC M249 GBB LMG. On top of all this, the VFC M249 also has a dry fire function, allowing you to annoy your mom at home when you feel like it!
