Squad Automatic Weapon
The M249 Squad Automatic Weapon is a belt-fed light machine gun used by the SGC and the Atlantis expedition. Major Charles Kawalsky carried one on the first excursion to Chulak and put it to good use against Apophis' troops pursuing SG-1 back to the Stargate. (SG1: " Children of the Gods, Part 2")
- The weapons used during production were in fact Korean made Daewoo K3s modified with Para-style stocks and barrels, rather than actual FN M249s.
- The M249 is an Americanized version of the Belgian FN Minimi, the primary difference originally being the buttstock, though various other changes have been introduced over the weapon's time in service.
