C9 LMG (Light Machine Gun), or C9A1, is the Canadian equivalent to the M249 SAW, with a few differences. It has no heat shield, a different butt with a butt grip, and the carrying handle is slightly different. It also has a picatinny rail mount with a 3.4x Optical sight on top. It is used as a section support weapon, there are two assigned per section.
Always perform a safety precaution on your C9 before you field strip it!!
