- “The suppressed M7: tears through armor and turns bad guys into chum.”
The M7S is equipped with a SS/M 49 sound suppressor, muzzle flash suppressor, and the SLS/V 5B reflex sight that uses a miniature reticle, making it more effective in dark areas and general close-quarters combat. A flashlight is attached under the suppressor off to the bottom left side of the barrel, but it is not usable. Sustained fire tends to cause the muzzle to "walk" upwards as recoil compounds.
Changes from Standard M7
