This does a very good job of personifying modern Machineguns. Great job as always, MOAB.

so the for-grip has the mag release button? Won't that cause problems?

Nah, mag release is the button just in front of the trigger guard. Releases the magazine locks on the opposite side. So if you were right handed, you'd manipulate it with your trigger finger and then tilt the gun to the left so that the magazine, which is on that side, falls away.

The trigger release on the fore grip is for its rail grippers, so it can be easily attached or removed.

any hints, as i'm currently lacking of any 'real' LMGs?

Best I can offer is to look at any existing modern LMGs, like the LSAT, MG4, Negev, Mk.46, M60E6 etc, and mix and match (and slightly modified) their components.

I started this remake out with an M60 as the base before adding in the short feed tray of an LSAT, Mk.46 style forearm, Para SAW style stock, AR-15 dust cover and so on.

Then it's just a case of altering the aesthetics to suit your taste/setting.

Why use caseless ammo? It provides no real benefit and in some tested platforms like the G11 it caused excess barrel heatup for some reason.

Much lighter than brass, so more can be carried, and for covert warfare especially there's no evidence left behind. Also, if there's no ejection port that opens every time the weapon cycles less dust and dirt will get into the working parts. The LSAT machine gun that is currently in advanced testing has used caseless ammo very effectively too. Bear in mind that the universe in which the Bider exists is a century into the future, so if the technology is working well now...

Keep in mind that even case-less weapons use an ejection port in the unlike occurance of a ignition failure. Even the G11 had an emergency ejection port in case the weapon failed to fire.

I know, but the ones on my guns are manually manipulated, so until the user opens that port for clearance, it stays closed.

Any particular reason for the thumbhole?

Not really, but its a design similarity with another weapon.

K. Just FYI, thumbholes are mostly a hinderance. They're only worth it on sniper rifles, and on weapons designed to bypass assault weapons bans.
