REDMOND, Wash. – B.E. Meyers & Co. Inc. in Redmond, Wash., is introducing the BOARS-M2 -- short for B.E. Meyers Optics & Accessories Rail System -- optics and laser accessory rail gun sight system for M2, M2A1, and M3 .50 caliber heavy machine guns.

The BOARS-M2 mount is a low-profile mount that offers a quick-disconnect with return-to-zero reattach.

Key features for the BOARS-M2 include: a quick detach optics and 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 composed of two parts: the lower base and a quick-detach optics and accessory rail. This allows for quick and effective changes between day and night optics without any loss of zero.

The new mount also simplifies cleaning and maintenance. While legacy systems require users to remove the optic and mount -- resulting in a complete loss of zero -- the BOARS-M2 only requires only the quick-detach of the optics and accessory rail, which preserves optic zero after reinstalling all components.

The BOARS-M2 measures 2.1 inches for a low end-user defilade and enhanced operator survivability during use. The system still incorporates a pass-through aperture for use with the iron sights if necessary.
