this is a great buy for collectors and skirmishers
the gun is very durable and is very easy to get to the gearbox for upgrades (which is needed)
i have noticed some feeding problemes and alot of errors on the externals
it has alot of random orange spots all over the gun (they come off with alittle effort) which are small and mostly not visible unless close up
it looked as if there were water stains on its in a small area and the metal is alittle warped
the echo1 logo is quite faded
***this is just saying that the gun will have errors but i believe the fault is on echo 1
overall the gun is great, its worth what you pay, but remember that you should buy upgrades asap
(tightbore barrel, better motor and a piston and piston head, the gears are ok for awhile)
for more help i suggest going to this video
.can use m4/m16 mags and a box mag
.3 position bi-pod
.3 position carrying handle (which can support the gun)
.very easy disassembley
.quick change spring
.bi-pod closes into the handle
.the pin that opens the top hatch will fall out alot (can be replaces with a bent paperclip)
.random discoloration (probably because of echo 1)
.a slightly upgraded a&k version (just cost alot more because it has echo1 trademark and warenty)
.the bi-pod will scratch the box mag
.some feeding issues
.can only fit a small type battery (with out modification)

This gun is awesome!!! I let my dad use it becuz he ddnt Have a gun and he took out everyone. The box mag protected every thing but his watch. Too bad it broke. One thing.. I mean a lot of things I liked about this gun is the box mag. The box mag held a bunch of amo for tons of auto-fed fun. But one thing I did not like is that the box Is made of plastic and that the door kept popping of.another thing that is cool is that the weight of this gun is realistic even though I run around shooting people.
Awesome gun for spraying
Bipods get shaky
Plastic bow mag

This gun has just arrived and I've had only a short time to play with it. Those reading this review should take the fact that I haven't taken this gun into an actual airsoft battle into account.
Initial impressions were good. This gun is absolutely massive, probably not appropriate for a starter gun. The full metal construction was a huge plus, making the gun feel very solid when you hold it. Because of the ground shipping, some of the screws were a little bit loose, but that was easily fixed. I'd recommend double checking all of the screws, even the ones for the cosmetic stuff like the feed cover.
The sights work pretty well and are completely adjustable, up to about 33% for windage and the same for distance.
The FPS on this gun is good, with mine clocking in at 351 FPS (I haven't tested this myself). More impressive than the FPS, however, is the rate of fire. I haven't tested the rate of fire either, but when firing the gun, it looks like the BBs exiting the barrel are a solid white line. This means that you're going to be putting quite a few rounds on whichever target you're aiming at.
One of the small issues I take with the M249 is the box magazine. As far as I'm aware, the auto-wind function doesn't work, so you'll have to hit the manual wind switch every time your ammo runs dry (although I am of the opinion that it adds a bit of realism to the game). That, and like the rest of the gun, the box magazine is enormous. If you're not at least six feet tall or have arms as long as a garden hose, odds are, you're going to have trouble holding the thing like a rifle with the box mag attached. I got around this problem by removing the box mag when I'm not in a static position (defending a base, flag or whatever) and sliding in an M16 high-cap magazine (which I also highly recommend you purchase) whenever I'm on the move.
The gun isn't without it's flaws. Like several other reviewers have mentioned, the integrated bipod isn't great, and should probably be replaced. At least two of the people who bought this gun had an issue with the trigger mechanism, although I'm given to understand that it's easily fixed (see L. HOUGH JR.'s review on the first page). The battery the gun comes with is of okay quality, but a 9.6v with at least 2500mAh would probably serve you much better. The M16/4 magazine this gun comes with has a small issue as well. I tried sliding this into a friends JG M4, but it wouldn't fit. We figured out that the ridge on the back of the magazine is about 1/16th of an inch too wide, but some filing and a fresh coat of paint solved that (other mags fit just fine into the M249's magazine port).
Overall, I very highly recommend this gun, but it's definitely not for a beginner, nor is it for anyone who is a bit shorter than average.
Multiple magazine options
Super high capacity box magazine.
Price (but you get what you pay for)
Slight problem with the included M16 magazine
Battery should be replaced
