The General Support Machine Gun (GSMG) MAG 58 can be used either as an Light Support Weapon (LSW) fired from the bipod, or be fired from a tripod in the extended range role. It can also be mounted on a tripod with a C2 sight and used in the sustained fire role.

It is a fully automatic, belt-fed, air-cooled, gas-operated weapon, firing from the open bolt position. It is capable of a sustained high volume of fire. Stoppages can be easily and quickly remedied. The barrel is chromed internally to reduce wear.

The ammunition belt is made up of disintegrating links, factory filled and packed in 500-round containers. The belts are normally fitted in the ratio of four ball rounds to one tracer round mix, although all-ball round belts are available.
