M-249 Squad Automatic Weapon (SAW) | How to Load, Unload and Shoot | Tactical Rifleman

This week, on Tactical Rifleman, we are going to do a brief introduction into the M-249 Squad Automatic Weapon (SAW). Pretty well everyone in the modern US military is familiar with this weapon. It’s used in base defense, mounted on light vehicles, and is the “Suppressing Fire” weapon of all our infantry squads. We aren’t going to bore you with all the statistics. If you want to know the text book maximum effective range, then go to an E-5 Promotion Board. Rather, we are just going to cover Load/Unload/Malfunctions, and then wrap it up with dumping 400rds into a couple illegally parked cars.

    I want to give a special “Thanks” to all our Patreon supporters. With their help we are going to be able to step up our video content. So, if you want to help out, please check us out on Patreon.

    Besides better videos… How about REAL Training? The Tactical Rifleman crew will soon begin offering open enrolment courses, on a variety of subjects. These courses can be held here, OR we can travel to your location, if you have enough clients and a range/classroom to support the training.  So, for those of you that have been hinting about attending a class; start finding like-minded friends, and we’ll be putting classes together soon.

Hope you enjoy. Strength & Honor, TR.
