    I'm not sure if the DMR setups still have the happy switch on them.

    You're not missing shit. An M14 is the last full auto Id care to own and or shoot.

    I'm not sure I'd go as far to say an M14 would be the last MG I would own, but there are plenty of other much more 'fun' MGs that I would want to shoot first.

    Never shot one on full auto, i'd imagine its not fun. As a semi however, I can't find anything I like better.

    They're terrible. You have to be on the plus size side of thing to anything with one. Even in the E2 platform it's a pain in the ass.

    I never understood people's obsession with full-auto firing. Sure, it can be fun for the few seconds the rounds last, but there's not much point to full auto unless you've got a gun specifically set to a certain task like an MP5 for CQB or an M240 for suppressing fire.

    I've got no use for a full auto weapon, wouldn't mind owning a few, but I'd probably never shoot them on full auto.

    Don't mean to derail.

    Marines consider a three shot burst a waste of two rounds.
