    Little guys are made by Borg-Warner... I have some from the early MINIMI here with different test ammo in them.

    Center strip is for the BESA...

    BESA loaded with Germanicon 7,92mm Tropical, the Borg-Warner links are not for the FN Minimi or M249

    No, I wasn't suggesting they were. More like the Stoner or perhaps the belt fed version of the M16icon...?

    You are right, Stoner 63 links which have a slightly different pitch than the M27 link that is used in the M249. Some owners of the Stoner 63
    have altered their weapon to use the more available M27 links.

    more MG links

    The links on the left are Germanicon WW2 for the 7,92mm cartridge in disintegrating links that were used in aircraft machine guns (some examples MG 81 and MG 17). These links are very difficult to find and mine came from a WW2 veteran who also had the BESA belt too.
