B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. Announces the release of the BOARS-M2.
B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. is pleased to announce the release of a revolutionary new optics and accessory rail system called the BOARS-M2 (B.E. Meyers Optics & Accessories Rail System) for the M2, M2A1, M3 series .50 caliber heavy machine gun platforms.
The BOARS – M2 mount is a low-profile mounting solution that offers a quick-disconnect with true return-to-zero reattach. The BOARS-M2 represents a solution to the shortcomings of current M2 platform heavy machine gun optics and accessories mounting systems. By incorporating a modular design, and compact dimensions that respond to the needs of the end user, the BOARS-M2 provides vastly increased capabilities to the current M2 platform. Key features for the BOARS-M2 include: a quick detach optics/laser rail, snag free design, non-marring installation, low height-over-bore, and oversized pass through aperture for use with iron sights.
The BOARS-M2 is comprised of two parts: the lower base and a quick-detach optics/accessory rail. This allows for quick and effective changes between day and night optics without any loss of zero. In addition, cleaning and maintenance of the M2 Weapon platform with an optics mount is simplified with the BOARS-M2. Legacy systems require the complete removal of the optic and mount (resulting in a complete loss of zero), whereas the BOARS-M2 only requires the quick-detach optics/accessory rail to be removed, thus preserving optic zero once all components have been re-installed.
With an overall height measuring in at a diminutive 2.1 inches over the top of the receiver, the BOARS-M2 is almost half as tall as current Optic/accessory mounting solutions. The existing modified TVS-5 style mount designed in the 1970’s measures in at 4.0 inches over the height of the receiver. This drastic reduction in height translates into a lower end-user defilade and increased operator survivability during use. Despite such a low profile, the BOARS-M2 still incorporates an effective pass-through aperture for use with the iron sights if necessary.
