Don’t click the link below if you’ve recently eaten.

If you have a 30 Browning with a slotted shroud or BA rivets or a blues version don’t click it at all.

Ha,Ha I took the bait. That looks like the butcher job that sons of guns (Red Jacket Firearms) did back in the past. o_O

I would...but a little different. IMO, the front end of the M230 is fugly.

And you would happen to have a transferable M249? Actually the TNW M230 is an attempt at a "poor man's" M240

Here's mine...and I love it! Don't knock it till you've tried it! It's especially nice and smooth with the open-bolt fire control parts.

Mine is way prettier and certainly more portable than a 1919a6 IMO...

How on earth does that trigger assembly work?
The m230 trigger assembly and the back plate are 2 separate parts that interface with each other. The m230 trigger has a larger extension that pushes up on the trigger in the 1919, i had to bend mine to fit. Overall makes it a poor mans m240 as mentioned before. I have it on one of my 1919's and its a blast. Also agree, the front is ugly so i run an m230 rear with a 1919a4 bipod and shroud

I would like to shoot these.
what’s the performance like?
I like it alot, i have a scoped semi build that makes it alot easier to shoot at distance because you dont have that awkward trigger. I bet its a total blast in full auto!

I really like my version of the M230 setup. LMG setups in general require less "stuff" to be hauled to the range and are more "grab & go." This setup is a lot lighter with its 16.5" barrel and less "clunky" than an A6...and if you notice, I've grafted the spring-loaded quick-deploy legs from an Izzy FAL to the bipod boss of the Izzy A6.

As for shooting...it's very nice and smooth with the open-bolt parts kit installed. Some people like fast shooting guns...I generally don't. The feel and speed of the gun firing from open-bolt is more like shooting an M60. I typically shoot it in .308, but it also runs like butter in 7.62x39 with one of Troy's conversion kits with 16.5" barrel.

I have a couple other F/A 1919a4s, and do enjoy shooting them off the tripod...but this configuration is honestly my favorite.

This is why I got into the 'Fight-Lite' belt fed .223. It's lighter,smaller and shoots the M249 links and boxes. The fight-lite is my trunk gun...with 700-rds of ammo linked,belted and ready for any...contingency.
