what does vanilla use for GMG particles?

Vanilla doesn't have a Mk19 equivalent but the closest thing, the 20mm GMG uses nothing.

that means we'd have to create a new particle effect for the gmg if vanilla has none

In that case, better to just remove the ejecting shell altogether for the Mk19.

I think it would be better to leave it as is until something new gets developed as the actual Mk.19 does eject shell casings and it looks better to have something actually eject out of the weapon rather than nothing (as you'd only really notice this inconsistency if you were looking at the shells ejecting rather than whatever you were firing at.)

Here is a video demonstrating the Mk.19 in action

Mk19 is supposed to eject downward, so I would also just keep the same shells and then change the ejection direction to make it less obvious

no shell being ejected looks bad, i dont think vanilla does it any differently, direction should be changed to match operation IRL

I've just noticed that this affects the AGS-30 as well.
