After Action Report

I found this site in my bookmarks- I'd almost forgotten about it. It's a fairly comprehensive review of weapons performance in Iraq, along with recommendations. It's a very interesting read.

Of note to me was the assessment of the SAW and this:
Redesign the current weapon system or develop a suitable replacement for this weapon system. That took me by surprise, especially considering that its now been adopted by the Royal Marines- I'm hoping to get some feedback from some mates still in the Corps about their experience with it.

Anyone out there have any problems with the M249? Maybe issuing the 7.62mm M48 MOD
is the way to go here? Or 100 round Beta-C drum mags for a heavy barrel M16? Any thoughts on the subject?
