Introducing modified .50 cal flash hider for M2A1 Machine Gun barrels
As MONS has reported from SHOT Show in January, B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. released the M2A1F Flash Hider, developed in response to requests for a more durable flash suppression solution for the M2A1. Leveraging patented flash suppression design, the M2A1F preserves the great performance and durability that a shooter has come to expect from B.E. Meyers products.
The M2A1F is made from a specifically selected alloy that has been heat treated to provide increased durability, and reliability over current competitive devices. Its left-hand thread pitch allows for quick and easy installation, and eliminates risk of separation from the barrel by self-tightening as shots are fired.
The M2A1F is a truly compact M2A1 flash hider. Measuring in at only 4.625in long, the M2A1F represents only a small increase in overall length of the weapon platform when compared to other legacy M2 variants, and does not negatively affect the cyclic rate of the short recoil M2 system. The M2A1F’s patented open-tine design is internally serrated to diminish visible signature in both day and night engagements. The effectiveness of the M2A1F’s flash suppression supports uninterrupted use with night vision devices, eliminating momentary blindness and flash distortion.
This new four prong flash hider can equip users currently fielding General Dynamics‘ M2A1 heavy machine gun.
