M249 Light Machine-Gun (LMG) Storage
Dasco Storage Solutions designs purpose-built storage for the M249 – America’s favorite light machine gun.View PDF Version
The M249 comes with a lot of accessories – spare barrels, ammo boxes and bipod – meaning there’s a lot to store. Dasco Storage Solutions has designed gun racks that secure & organize it all. Our solutions can store strictly M249s, or they can be configured for mixed storage with M4s and M16s. We’ve created the most flexible and durable weapon storage system trusted by combat units around the world.
United States M249 LMG Storage Requirements
The standard-issue M249 light machine introduced in 1984:
- 25 pounds (with ammo box)
- 40.9-inch overall length
- 18.3-in barrel
Common M249 LMG accessories:
- Spare changeable barrels
- Adjustable bipod
- Carrying sling
The M249 LMG requires more storage space than the average infantry weapon. The interchangeable, quick-change barrels, ammo box and bipod add to the storage requirements. Whether you’re storing your light machine guns in the United States or deployed internationally, we have a solution for your needs.
DASCO'S STORAGE SOLUTION
Dasco Storage Solutions has lots of secure storage options for the M249. We’ve designed solutions for American and NATO forces worldwide.
Restricted-Access M249 Machine Gun Storage
Our Bi-Fold Weapon Rack and Stackable Weapon Rack are extremely secure. The perforated racks are secured with a multiple point lock mechanism. With components and configurations designed for the M249 LMG, we’re able to maximize storage capacity and security. Our spare barrel holders and ammo shelves even let you store everything in a single gun rack.
If you’re looking for something more inconspicuous, you can choose a Weapon Storage Cabinet. All three options are available in multiple sizes to meet your weapon storage needs.
Open-Access M249 LMG Storage in the United States
For open-access storage, armorers rely on our Expandable Weapon Rack. Together with M249-specific storage components, these racks can store as many guns, spare barrels and ammo boxes as you have. The flexible design allows you to store other weapons and accessories and can be changed by moving the components around.
We also have an open-style Mobile Weapon Cart for transporting M249s. The heavy-duty cart is ideal for taking machine guns to the range or training operations. The cart is easy to steer and has two locking casters. With the Mobile Weapon Cart, you can transport up to 10 guns and accessories at one time (5 on each side)!
M249 Light Machine Gun Storage Products
Almost all of our weapon storage products can store and organize M249 LMGs (not suited for Weapon Wall Panels). We’d recommend our more popular weapon racks, although you can select a cabinet or even gear storage locker. What makes our products stand out is the completely adjustable components designed with M249 machine guns in mind.
