Radical Defense M2FVS Suppressor — .50 Can

The Radical Defense M2FVS suppressor offers sound, thermal, and flash mitigation along with a reduction in ground disturbance. It’s a 3D-printed monolithic design incorporating their forward venting mono-core design. The internal Venturi and Breathable Technology ports reduce back pressure and bring cool air through the suppressor.

Radical Defense has added to its FVS line of suppressors with the M2FVS suppressor, currently being tested as part of the Army’s 50 caliber contract.

The biggest thing about this .50 can is that it is designed to directly thread to a mil std M2A1 without modifying the barrel or recoil system. They are currently conducting endurance testing to RFI W15BW9-22-X-JKTH standard which is 50 rounds in cadence and 50 rounds full auto sustained then cool to ambient and repeat.

The Radical Defense M2FVS is designed to directly thread on the military standard M2A1 rifle without modifying the barrel or recoil system.

The Army M2A1 contract requirements state that the suppressor should maintain or reduce the current flash levels as well as reducing sound and environmental disturbances. Additionally, the suppressor should be designed to minimize toxic fumes at the gunner’s face while not decreasing the weapon’s cyclic rate when firing specific Ball/Tracer ammunition. The requirements also state that the sound reduction from using the suppressor should be at least 6dB in peak, unweighted sound at the shooter’s ear.

Patti Miller is one of the most awesome females in the tactical/firearm (or any) industry. Imagine a tall, hawt, dangerous Laura Ingalls Wilder type with cool hair and a suppressed blaster and you’ll be getting the idea. What’s interesting is that in addition to being a willing brawler and intrepid adventuress, she’s also an Ent/Ogier level gardener and a truly badass baker.
