Enforce Tac 2015: B.E. Meyers releases new 249-Saker Flash Hider with SilencerCo and GLARE RECOIL

B.E. Meyers & Co. Inc. has released their new 249-Saker Flash Hider, providing the same patented design features of their original 249 flash hider, now compatible with the SilencerCo Saker series of sound suppressors.

We approached SilencerCo a year ago to talk about a redesign to our classic 249. We felt that they were providing the best systems on the market and that they were innovating and evolving at an impressive pace,” said Matt Meyers, Director of Marketing and Business Development. “The SilencerCo team has been terrific to work with and we are excited to be able to promote their products by offering a compatible B.E. Meyers flash hider.”

B.E. Meyers designed the original versions of their flash hider in the 1990s (5.56mm, 7.62mm, and .50BMG) exclusively for SWCC, and then later on provided them to other US and international military customers. Only recently did they team with WeaponOutfitters.com to launch the top-rated 249 commercially, which has been a terrific success. The design incorporates the four-pronged flash hider structure with patented asymmetric tines and interior expansion grooves that B.E. Meyers & Co. Inc. is known for. At 2.65” OAL, the 249-Saker is slightly shorter than its predecessor and has the SilencerCo MAAD mounting system integrated in the base. Additionally, the new flash hider has the same Melonite finish as the revised version of the 249.

The 249-Saker will be available through WeaponOutfitters.com as well as other B.E. Meyers online and storefront retailers in February of 2015.

The second new release is the GLARE RECOIL laser. With that B.E. Meyers is taking part in the $ 49 Mio. USMC Command Ocular Interruption Program. The GLARE RECOIL is an advanced weapon mounted hail and warning laser system. It features the patented SmartRange technology, integrating laser range finder (LRF) into the systems safety control. The LRF has a range of 60 m, a person inside that range and the systems brings the power done. The effective rang is up to 900 m, with a max. output of 250 mW. For power a CR123 is used and the GLARE RECOIL has a weight of 17 oz.

In Germany, Austria and Switzerland B.E. Meyers products are available through LIEMKE GmbH in Germany.
