Press Release: Smith Enterprise Releases a New .50 Cal Flash Hider for M2A1
Smith Enterprisedesigned aVortex
Flash Hider for General Dynamicsseveral
years ago for their improved .50 Cal Flash Hider project they were trying to
win from the US Army. Even though General Dynamics liked the SEI Vortex flash hider,
they ended up making their own version of the old Smith Enterprise straight flute design. The General Dynamic’s straight flute version is inferior to the Vortex because it did not have helical flutes which is a patented technology owned by
SEI that blocks up to 98% of the flash.
SEI then got a call from 1SG Michael
Onstine from the 82nd Airborne and he wanted to try Vortex on his unit's M2A1 Quick Change .50
Cal machine guns. So Smith Enterprise designed a Vortex that will screw
on the threaded .50 Cal, replacing the General Dynamics M2A1 flash hider.
SEI even added its famous skull logo that is seen on so many other of its products.
The soldiers of the 82nd Airborne will be testing the new Smith Enterprise M2A1 .50 Cal Vortex Flash Hider on 9 October, 2013. SEI will post the review and results when they come in.
