    O my friend and I have been looking at m249's, and he thinks that he will be able to use an m249 mag in an m4 and vice versa. Can anyone help us settle this?

    Because they are thread differently probably not, that's why they make an m4 box mag

    I'm pretty sure some M249s are compatible with M4 mags. Not sure about M249 mags in M4s though.

    He saw an m249 with a standard mag and thinks it was an m4 mag, so he wants to try an m249 mag in his m4

    Pointless argument imo.. If he wants to try a m249 mag in his m4 then let him, Maybe it will work maybe it wont. I don't really see why you should "care". It's his gun / money so let him do what he wants.

    I wouldn't think so, but it is possible. But I wouldn't try, waste of money most likely.

    If you want to be ub3r l33t then just get a A&K box mag. I don't recommend it though just because it sounds like a miraca.

    To answer the question.

    Yes M249s take STANAG M4 mags.
    No M4s cannot use a N249 box mag.

    I know it's a pointless argument, but I left something out in my OP, he is t my friend, he's my best friend, so pointless **** is to be expected

    Alright but still, not really thread worthy. Anyways, just tell him to get an A&K box mag and call it a cheap, affordable day.

    I thought you were referencing the abomination that is the electric A&K box mag. A guy at the field bought three, and ended up throwing them in the garbage because how bad they were.

    Yes a M4/M16 can use a M249 box mag with a little modding and dremeling lol.

    But really hard to get the box mag in haha. Did this for my Unfinished Shrike project, cause I was bored. And had 3 CA box mags laying around

    It works, but A&K Box Mags suck lol.
    The CA ones feed a small but better and faster.

    Or just mod your own box mag to fit. More fun lol
