Am I nuts for wanting this? Having a belt-fed .223 rifle sounds fun and I can pull it off for less than $5k. The M249 has a pretty simple sheet metal design and there just aren't that many other options for a belt-fed rifle out there.

IMO, any full-auto to semi-auto conversion just results in a unreasonably large gun that kinda sucks. I'll give an exception for WarPlanRed's TNW MG34, because the MG34 is so damn cool, even if it's just a big G3 rifle.

I wouldn't spend $5k on one but it's not my money and I don't know what you want to do with it.

Beltfed is dope how many rapid fire belt dumps are you going to want to do before you're like, "meh." Maybe if you could build full auto and rent it out at a range or something as an investment, it'd be cool. But without full auto and because there's no binary trigger made for one that I'm aware of, you're just going to end up with a really heavy 5.56 that isn't especially accurate and doesn't need to be reloaded but requires you to buy belted ammo or load your own ammo into belts.

I'd pass. It'd look cool as a wall-hanger though. With a binary trigger, plenty of ammo ready to roll in belts and replacement barrels, it'd be a cool force multiplier in a cray-cray walking dead apocalypse home defense situation.

An RPD was my first choice actually, but there are literally NO parts kits for sale anywhere at all! It's nuts, not even parts like the lower receiver are for sale anywhere.

Pic related is what I would've done if I got my hands on an RPD. Someone in Iraq also loved the M249 so much that they tacticooled one into an RPD.

Vector Arms RPD-SA Semi-Automatic Belt Fed Rifle
This is a semi-automatic copy of the famous Russian RPD squad machine gun. These were the first true Squad Automatic Weapon which were so highly successful throughout Vietnam. This example was produced using a new made, semi-automatic rifle receiver combined with a Warsaw Pact/Soviet set of parts along with the correct number of U.S. made parts making it completely "922 compliant". It retains the belt-fed mechanism with the 100 round drum. It has the later pattern laminated type furniture; contoured handguard, ribbed pistol grip, and larger profile buttstock with butt-trap compartment. It is complete with the correct style spring loaded bipod, brown leather sling, one drum magazine and a 49-round disintegrating metal belt and cleaning rod. https://www.rockislandauction.com/detail/57/461/vector-arms-inc-rpd-rifle-762x39

DSArms produced semi-auto conversion of an original Polish made RPD. The RPD was originally designed during late WW2 by the Soviets and represents the end of a series of machine guns designed by Vasily Degtyaryov, including the DP-28, DPM, and DShK. It was the first true Squad Automatic Weapon (SAW), being a light machine gun chambered for an intermediate round, in this case 7.62x39mm, the same round as the AK-47. The RPD weighs 16.31 lbs unloaded and is 40.8 inches long. https://imgur.com/gallery/532z6Wt

The RPD was known to be a very reliable weapon, however it was replaced by the RPK in the 60's primarily for the Soviet SAW to have parts commonality with the AKM and to remove the higher amount of complicated parts needed for a belt feed.

The RPD is belt fed and feeds from the left side. The sights are of a standard AK pattern but with added windage controls. The ammunition belt is typically held in a steel drum attached to a bracket underneath the receiver. There is also a cleaning rod which runs across the left side of the receiver.

The belt for the RPD is in 2 50 round sections which attach in the middle. The 2 sections are non-disintegrating however and hangs off of the receiver. The belts are rolled up and place into the drum, the rattle from the loose rounds is very noticeable.

Rumors of a semi-auto HK21 circle around...
Last time I priced just the parts for this you're looking at 20k and that's for semi auto.
Just the feed mechanism is a dick kicking $5k. https://hkparts.net/product/hk21e-feed-mechanism-complete-p584.htm
The 21 is so fucking neat but it was an answer to a question no one asked. The 21 didn't do anything someone else wasn't doing better or more local.
Shits and giggles I looked up Rock island auction and they sold a transferable one for 32k.
You're in luck otb has one in stock for 35k but it's the long boi so it will be another 3k to cut down that barrel. https://www.reddit.com/r/guns/comments/ffg1nk/i_see_people_posting_for_308_day_but_i_think_it/fjyg3mx/
