The 19th Special Forces Group is currently evaluating the Flux Raider, a specialized grip module for the P320 pistol, which could potentially revolutionize sidearm use in special operations. This module turns the standard M17 pistol into a more compact and versatile weapon resembling a submachine gun, with enhancements like a stock system, forward grip, and accessory rail for optics and lights. There is also speculation and rumors of its testing with other SOCOM units and potential adoption by Navy SEALs.
- The Flux Raider is an accessory for the P320 pistol that significantly enhances its capabilities, providing features normally seen on larger firearms.
- Special Forces units are testing the Flux Raider for its potential to outperform traditional sidearms in modern combat scenarios.
- Equipped with a stock and optic, the Flux Raider extends the effective range and accuracy of the M17 pistol, offering greater control.
- The compact size and increased capability of the Raider-equipped M17 make it ideal for scenarios like boarding ships and close-quarters combat.
- Despite no official confirmation, there are rumors of the Raider being considered by other elite units such as Navy SEALs, particularly DEVGRU.
