DSEi 09: FN Minimi Para rockin' a red dot

Korean firm Dong In Optical specializes in red dot sights for machine guns, miniguns, grenade launchers and auto-cannons.

The Model DCL100 Red Dot Sight (below) is designed specifically for the FN Minimi / M249 and FN MAG / M240 light machine guns. It is seen here mounted on the Minimi Para, FN’s short 13.7″ barreled, collapsible stocked, machine gun.

The larger Model DCL110 designed for .50 heavy machine guns and 20mm cannons

I have an overwhelming desire to mount one of these on a Ruger 10/22 🙂

A big thanks to Groot Mamba for the photos.

    it is indeed a airsoft M249 para because i imagine it is difficult getting a hold of a real one (in the US it can be possible by talking to a local national guard unit, though im not so sure in S Korea).
