The M240L Medium Machine Gun incorporates titanium construction and alternative manufacturing methods for fabricating major M240B components. This achieves significant weight savings. These improvements reduce the Soldier’s combat load while allowing easier handling and movement of the weapon. Configured with a short barrel and telescoping buttstock, the M240L weighs 21.8 pounds, 5.8 pounds lighter than the M240B. The M240L meets all of the reliability and operational characteristics of the M240B.
