Combat Grade

The Griffin Armament QD Blast Shield Gen 2 body is fluted to reduce weight while improving strength, handling ability, and heat dissipation. The concussive gases are directed forward, allowing the Gen 2 Blast Shield to reduce concussive force significantly.

High-Quality Construction

The Griffin Armament QD blast shield is engineered from high-strength 17-4PH stainless steel and is given a tough melonite QPQ finish for protection from corrosive gases. With a weight of just 8.78 ounces and an overall length of only 3.38 inches, the QD shield keeps your rifle light and maneuverable.

No-Hassle Installation

The Griffin Armament QD Blast Shield Gen 2 installs easily without special tools and comes with a shim set and over-travel stop washer. The shield is compatible with calibers up to and including 9mm cartridges.

Due to variances in design, it can not be guaranteed that the OD shield will fit all A2 style muzzle devices, and it is not compatible with BCM, BCE, or PWS muzzle devices.
