Griffin Armament QD Blast Shield

The QD Blast Shield was designed to offer significant concussion reduction for the end user and other team members operating in the immediate vicinity. Often team members in CQB environments experience concussion from muzzle blast that is not only deafeningly loud, but also can cause prolonged headaches that can last for days afterwards.

Especially effective on short barrels, the unique design of the QD Blast Shield directs concussive force forward allowing an end user to rapidly reconfigure muzzle device function. Ultra strong 17-4PH stainless steel provides a robust material to withstand intense use and full auto fire without fear of failure. Fluted geometry in the triangular shield lightens the unit while providing internal front supports for the muzzle device.

Melonite QPQ surface treatment provides an extremely hard, durable, and attractive finish.

The QD mechanism is fast, positive, and free of wear prone geometry commonly found in ratcheting devices. The QD Blast Shield also comes with a shim set and overtravel stop to refit your A2 compensator for optimal use.

The Griffin QD Blast Shield is compatible with our line of QD 5.56mm mounts, Including the Flash Comp, Muzzle Brake, Compensating Flash Hider, and Tactical Compensator. It is also compatible with A2 Compensators that fall within the NATO spec blueprinted dimensions. Although many companies manufacture A2 style compensators not all of them are dimensioned properly. Not Compatible with BCM, BCE or PWS muzzle devices.

Griffin Armament has continued to pursue product development that will enhance hearing safety in tactical and shooting sport situations. The QD Blast Shield is a great product for those that would like to reduce the concussion of their muzzle devices.

Griffin QD Blast shield April 20, 2016
Reviewer: SFP  
Put this on a Tavor, fit and finish are great. There is a little play once installed, but it's intentional so you can break the carbon buildup loose after shooting.

Doesn't fit December 21, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from monument, CO United States  
Great appearance, well made.

But.  Tried it on 5 different guns - no joy.  Too big or too small - nothing just right. (Wouldn't fit on three; flopped around on one; fit on the Stag 3g, but would have needed filing/fitting).

Not many guys have 5 different weapons to try it on - I can say that I gave the Blast Shield a fair shot.

Not willing to start filing/grinding.

Well-made, but December 21, 2015
Reviewer: White Devil from OH United States  
Excellent quality like other Griffin gear I have but fit is not as tight as I expected it to be, despite using it with their M4SD compensator.  It does move a bit from side to side.  While I'm no expert I would imagine there's a way to get this to fit tightly and you would think GA would have discovered this by now.

Simple, effective and high quality October 7, 2015
Reviewer: DanGoodShot from Oxford, CT United States  
Its a vary simple design so its very easy to use. Accomplished its main purpose for me. I stopped pissing off the shooters in the next port. Slightly more recoil when installed. Fit and finish is outstanding. The only draw back is it is a bit pricey as most quality muzzle devices on the market. With that said, Griffin does a good job of putting out a high quality product and still keeps their pricing lower than other companies of the same quality. However it is just a piece of steal with 2 screws and a spring that, if it wasn't for a firearm, would cost about $30 - $40. Tops. If for some reason I needed another I would not hesitate to purchase this again through SKD. SKD has the some of the best pricing coupled with fast shipping.
