Halo: M739 SAW (Squad Automatic Weapon)

The M739 Squad Automatic Weapon is a fully automatic rifle capable of laying down a large amounts of suppression fire. The M739 is a 7.62x51mm open bolt, gas assisted delayed roller blowback, liquid cooled rifle with a integrated ammo counter and weapon system management suite. What makes the M739 unusual is the charging handle is located on the magazine, and the M739 also returns spent casings into the mag. The magazine itself is governed and holds 72 cartridges, but can easily double it's capacity to 144 rounds.
The M739 has a short stubby stock to allow use with armored personal, and features a crossbolt safety that can lock the action open, and a magazine safety that disables the gun when the magazine is detached.
What can I say? Had to build the SAW, Halo desperately needed a non-fixed, non- handicapped machine gun, unfortunately it never happened in the first trilogy, but better late than never.
