Although I love the new FDE & Black two-tone series from FN, if I’m being honest with myself, given the opportunity I’d own a M249S PARA in any color imaginable. Chartreuse, mauve, leopard print – heck even OD green is on the menu. Yes, yes, a semi-automatic beltfed seems like an insult to all those who provide covering fire, but I don’t care – I want one. Sadly, my budget might be able to squeeze in a FNS Compact color blocked pistol, but the 249 is left for fantasies and dreams.
FN is offering several models in the new color scheme. Details and the press release can be found below.
