B.E. MEYERS & CO Introduces Modified .50 Flash Hider for M2A1 Machine Gun Barrels

Wednesday, February 14th, 2018

February 14, 2018 (Redmond, WA) – B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. is pleased to announce the release of 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 superior performance and durability that the warfighter has come to expect from B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. products.

COMPACT, RUGGED AND RELIABLE

The M2A1F is made from a specific 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 4.625” 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.

ENGINEERED FOR DAY AND NIGHT OPERATIONS

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.

ENHANCED CAPABILITY

B.E. Meyers & Co. is ready to equip users currently fielding the M2A1 HMG. The M2A1F is a superior solution for those looking for rugged, compact, and effective flash suppression, and can be easily fitted without any additional modifications to the weapon. With the B.E. Meyers M2A1F, the durable materials and design reduces risk of failure, improving confidence of reliability in all adverse conditions.

Brad Meyers 1941-2017

Thursday, March 23rd, 2017

Founder and CEO Emeritus of B.E. Meyers & Co. Inc.

Bradley Edward Meyers: 1941-2017
It is with great sadness that the family and employees of B.E. Meyers & Co. Inc. announce the recent death of our Founder, Chief Innovator, and friend, Bradley Edward Meyers. Brad passed from this earth on the evening of 21 March, 2017, after complications due to a recent illness, and he was surrounded by family in his final moments at home. We are stunned and heartbroken by his loss.

Passionate. Positive. Persistent.
Brad graduated from high school in Brookfield, Wisconsin in 1959, afterwards attending a semester of college before leaving to follow his entrepreneurial spirit and make his own way. Brad held a variety of jobs over the years, such as selling orange juice and encyclopedias door-to-door in the 1960’s, truck driver, grave digger, medical and scientific equipment salesman at Roemer-Karr, explosives technician at EXCOA, commercial diver at his company Controlled Dynamics, astronomer, night vision equipment manufacturer, and lastly as the individual that set B.E. Meyers & Co. Inc. on our current path of systems integration and advanced photonics. He was the consummate entrepreneur, and was unwavering in his positive outlook in life, passion for new ideas, and persistent pursuit of his goals.

Innovation and Imagination
Brad’s legacy is primarily known by many in the Special Operations community through his products such as the IZLID™, DIAL™, GLARE™, MK Ranger™, and GRI2P™ series of lasers, as well as the B.E. Meyers Flash Hider line. He cited that his special gift was in finding the right people to help him reapply existing technologies in new ways to help the Warfighter. He was terrifically proud of the tremendous team that helped bring his ideas to life, and his legacy will continue on as the company is propelled by his infectious enthusiasm for the new, the different, and the exciting.

Memorial
Brad is mourned by his wife of forty-four years, Nancy; sons: Clint and Matthew; daughter, Rebecca; grandchildren: Jack and Alena; son-in-law, John; and daughter-in-law, Nicolle. Brad was preceded in death by his father, Alfred Arthur Meyers and his mother, Mabel Heidtman of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

He also leaves behind his faithful friend and tireless canine companion, Shadow.

The family extends their sincere thanks to the first responders of Eastside Fire and Rescue (WA), King County Sheriff’s Office (WA), and Sammamish Police Department (WA) for their support during this difficult time.

In lieu of flowers, the Meyers family asks that donations be made in Brad’s honor to charities that align with his interests, specifically, the Special Operations Care Fund, the National Rifle Association ILA, and his home church, the Community Church of Joy in Sammamish, WA.

Memorial service information will be forthcoming to industry, family, and friends. For questions regarding memorial attendance, please contact Mary Hance at mary.hance@bemeyers.com.
