There was competition for the Mk 46 Mod 0, and FN won, while Stoner lost. This was the Stoner entry.
Did you know that the Minimi was originally supposed to be a 6mm LMG? Did you know that the first two prototypes were in 7.62x51mm? Yes, they still exist and they do work, altough not perfectly reliably. The second prototype is better than the first. Then they switched to 5.56mm.
Alls I know is that Special Forces used the stoner in Vietnam. Good concept idea have every one in your section issued a LMG/rifle and there's a great ammount of firepower you can dish out. Makes sense in jungle warfare where you can just hose down the thick foliage and crap and mess up the VC wherever he's hiding.
I don't see any dragons. I think this is a Stoner 86. Why, is there a company called Dragon that makes this? What's the asking price?
A couple dollars I would assume. Dragon makes action figures of real life SOF/Specops et al. That picture of the Stoner is not real, it's a toy. It's a nice shot, and a pretty damn accurate model to be so small in scale, but it isn't a real steel.
No, Wolf. This is not the model used by SOF in Vietnam. That was a much earlier model, however the exact designation excapes me at this moment. The 86 model was made in the mid 90's as previously stated. It was to be a contender for the new SEAL LMG (MK46 Mod 0 - M249 customized), as Stoner was still very popular from his older MG back in the 'Nam days with the SEALs.

It was the Stoner 63 Weapons system. It was something like puzzle, this weapon used a single receiver module which, using a variety of parts, could be built up as an assault rifle, a carbine, a light automatic rifle (uses box magazine) or as a squad automatic weapon (uses belt and ammo box).
It is hard to say what that is. There is a company called Ares Defense that has developed a belt fed upper than can be dropped onto an M-16/M-4 lower. It is called the "Shrike". Check www.aresdefense.com.
