In a 5 minute game turn the feed mechanism (box, drum, belt) is pretty irrelevant. This isn't an FPS where a second or two one way or the other matters.

I'd look at the stabilization method; none, bipod, or tripod: and standard sights; iron or scoped: rather then caliber or general method of use/employment.

And while I agree with Don, I'm curious to see what you come up with.
