I agree from my time in the Marines I beleive a belt fed weapon is the way to go. I remember before we got the SAW in the mid 80s the automatice rifleman in the fire teams had nothing more than a M16A1 with extra mags and a sloppy bi-pod. Keeping the enemies heads down when establishing a base of was severly lacking until the M249 was introduces. There were less malfunctions with the belt fed weapon vise the magazine ones. I will admit using the saw with mags leaves a little to be desired.
