The BOARS-M2 (B.E. Meyers & Co. Optics & Accessory Rail System for the M2) is a low-profile mounting solution that offers a quick-disconnect with true return-to-zero reattach. The base of the mount is installed via friction clamps and is meant to remain on the host platform, while the detachable rail can be removed and reattached at will, and will retain zero of all optics and laser systems mounted. The detachable rail incorporates rail segments for mounting most common laser systems in conjunction with a top mounted optic, while still clearing the gap in a M2 shield.
