the A&K M249 has the ability to use standard M4/M16 magazines (just like the Classic Army),

Real Steel History:
The M249 is an air-cooled, gas-operated, fully-automatic-only firearm that fires from an open bolt position.
It can accept belts of linked 5.56x45mm NATO (.223) ammunition through the top-mounted feed tray or
M16-type magazines through the side-mounted port. The latter allows a SAW gunner to use riflemens'
magazines in an emergency if he runs out of belted ammunition, though this often causes jams as the magazine
spring cannot adequately keep up with the weapon's high rate of fire. Linked ammunition can be fed from either a
loose belt or from a plastic box (or cloth pouch) for 200 rounds, clipped under the receiver. The hard plastic
box has issues with being insecurely attached and by producing noise with movement in its standard form.
The M249 SAW features a built-in bipod and a tripod-mounting lug for supported fire, as well as a quick change
barrel that helps prevent overheating during sustained fire. Barrels are engaged and disengaged by rotating the
built-in handle, and a spare is normally carried slung in an "A-bag" by the gunner or his assistant. The forearm
is designed to contain a small cleaning kit for field use, though it may not be stored there in practice.
The M249 Para is a commercial product (law enforcement and military sales only) by FNH USA, not a type classification.
It features a metallic, retractable stock and a shorter barrel. It was designed as a paratrooper weapon, although its
compact dimensions make it desirable in any combat scenario. The U.S. military did test a short-barreled variant based
on a standard M249, but it would appear short-barreled M249s (not M249E4 SPWs or Mk 46 Mod 0s) have been modified to
this standard in the field and are not original from factory. The difference between the FN M249 Para and the FN MINIMI
Para is the use of the so-called PIP (Product Improvement Program) kit developed for the M249, which is also found on
all commercial M249 variants. (Taken from wikipedia.com)
