September 24, 2019 (Redmond, WA) – B.E. Meyers & Co. Inc. is proud to announce that the BOARS®-M2 optics and accessory rail system has been issued National Stock Number (NSN)1240-01-682-8650 by TACOM, US Army, following successful evaluation and testing through the US Army Soldier Enhancement Program (SEP).

A total of 4,752 complete BOARS®-M2 units have been procured for initial fielding by PM Soldier Weapons, PEO Soldier. Designed to support a variety of mounted machine gun optics for the M2 and M3 family of weapon systems, the BOARS-M2 provides a modular, low-profile optics and accessory rail mount with true return-to-zero capability.  The BOARS-M2 is ideal for those wishing to easily transition from a day optic to a night optic while retaining boresight for both systems, and without interfering with the operation of the spade grips or the feed tray cover.

Units are encouraged to contact PM-Soldier Weapons, PEO Soldier, Picatinny Arsenal, NJ to place their demands for initial fielding.

FEATURES AND CAPABILITES

LOW PROFILE

The BOARS®-M2 is the lowest-profile M2 mount for optics and accessories.

With an overall height measuring in at a 2.1 inches over the top of the receiver, the BOARS-M2 is almost half height of the current optic/accessory mounting solutions. This drastic reduction in height translates into a lower end-user defilade and increased operator survivability during use.

MODULARITY

The BOARS-M2 is a two-piece design (lower base, and detachable upper rail rail) which provides a quick-disconnect for effective changes between day and night optics with true return-to-zero reattach. The lower base of the mount is installed via friction clamps and is meant to remain on the host platform, while the detachable rail incorporates rail segments for mounting most common laser systems in conjunction with a top mounted optic, and a pass-through aperture for use of iron sights.
