Cutting wood with an M249 SAW (VIDEOS)

09/24/18 10:00 AM | by

Not to be confused with a handsaw, the Squad Automatic Weapon is a totally different beast. However, it can still hack through lumber.

Because what Texas ranch doesn’t need an FN-made M249, Matt with Demolition Ranch has a SAW of his very own and covers the basics of the gun’s operation in the above video. He then moves to hack a 2×4″ in half via 5.56mm perforation at close range to see if it can be done. For reference, a regular handsaw is more effective, but not as fun.

Sadly, it looks like he has a semi-auto only “S” version of the which FN introduced to the commercial market in 2015 and have tweaked ever since.

For more NFA-ish fun SilencerCo hit the range with both an FN M249 and a MK 48 MOD 1 for some trigger time in the below video, complete with one of their Saker cans.

Sure, the soundtrack sounds like they borrowed it from the DJ at an Iraqi wedding, but the machine guns are on point and they run a 300-round string through each.
