For the purposes of clarity, (Low) is used as a suffix for the non-raised variants.
The new M2 Static HMG (Raised) will disassemble into Folded Tripod (Raised) and Dismantled M2 (Raised). However, bringing another Dismantled M2 (Raised) backpack and applying it to the Folded Tripod (Raised) of a disassembled gun will spawn an M2 (Low) variant.
When these novel M2 (Lows) are broken down, they will produce a Folded Tripod (Raised) of the appropriate type, but the Dismantled M2 will be converted from (Raised) to (Low)
This behavior occurs regardless of order of operation (gun or tripod on actor).
This behavior is consistent with all factional variants of the M2 HMG (Raised).
This behavior is *not* repeated when a Folded Tripod (Raised) is brought in from the outside
This behavior occurs with kits that are created through the Arsenal, I.E. not existing prior to mission start.

Optics were not closely monitored, but no abnormalities were noted.
While disassembling an existing gun allows for normal reassembling, any outside gun kits are converted to their (Low) variants upon use.
