NordArm has developed a quick detachable blank firing adapter for the iconic Browning M2 .50 caliber heavy machine gun. NordArm’s blank firing adapter has a patented attachment system which requires no tools to fit and uses a clamp and ratchet system and the adapter mounts onto the gun’s barrel support.
Here’s what NordArm have to say about their M2 blank firing adapter:
NordArm has developed a new type Browning M2 HMG Blank Firing Adapter. The BFA is a combination of familiar design and patented quick attach/release system. The system enables users to attach or detach the device in a matter of seconds without any required tools. This saves time in training field and need for any additional tools, which might be lost during haste of exercise.
As the BFA attaches only to the Barrel Support, there is no contact with any other mechanical or moving part, thus any possible damage to the weapon system is excluded.
Fixed or adjustable gas ports are available and the BFA can be fitted to different types of Barrel Supports. Various safety colored versions available if protocols apply.
Development was supported by the Estonian Ministry of Defence. As a fact, the Estonian MoD has increased budget year by year supporting local Defence Industry and engaging in close cooperation with the companies, since the development support programme started back in 2013.
Several orders have been delivered to the Estonian Defence Forces and Estonian Defence League since 2019. NordArm is displaying the product at DSEI 2021 exhibition in London (14th-17th of September 2021) at the Estonian Pavillion, stand no. H4-120.
