ALSO CONVERTS REVOLUTION, RESISTANCE, AND OPTIMUS 9 to accept Taper Mount muzzle devices for rifle applications.

The Taper Mount Minimalist Blast Shield was designed to offer significant concussion reduction for the end user and other team members operating in the immediate vicinity. The Minimalist blast shield can also convert the Optimus silencer to a 7.9" 15.7 ounce mid size taper mount configuration compatible with minimalist taper mount muzzle devices only. In the blast shield configuration, the minimalist brake shield is compatible with all taper mount muzzle devices. COMES STD WITHOUT THREAD PROTECTOR. Thread protector, if desired, must be selected from the drop down option menu.

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 Taper Mount Blast Shield directs concussive force forward . Ultra strong 17-4PH stainless steel provides a robust material to withstand intense use and full auto fire without fear of failure. Flats on the rear of the device allow the use of a large adjustable wrench, strap wrench, or vise for removal if needed.

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

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

Must for Optimus September 17, 2018
Reviewer: Jason Yma from McKinney, TX United States  
If you have an Optimus, this will be the best addition you can make outside of a hammer comp. This never comes off the suppressor. The extended mount that comes with the optimus is just a tad long for my taste. Never had to use it with any of my configurations. Actually, the longer mount is what I use as a blast shield. I recommend.

Great addition to the Optimus September 8, 2018
Reviewer: Robert from North Dakota  
If you own a Griffin Optimus  I highly recommend purchasing this blast shield. It is great when you want a short can but still want to use the blast baffle. This device adds to the variability to the already versatile Optimus, making it even better.

Griffin is legit! August 24, 2018
Reviewer: Matthew Cinelli from Gloucester , VA United States  
Just got my can in at the FFL and I brought this along with the muzzle brake in to test fit. And the first thing that popped into my head is “damn this is legit” the threading is precise and nice. It fits the can and my rifle perfectly. The only problem I have now is to try and figure out what I’ll spend my trump bucks on haha!

Awesome machine work August 22, 2018
Reviewer: Chris clark from Elizabethton, TN United States  
I purchased to run my Optimus in the mid configuration. Fit and finish is top shelf and the device also performs great as a stand alone blast shield when the suppressor is not in use. I am using the minimalist flash suppressor taper mount and with the blast shield installed in also looks really sharp. Overall I am very satisfied with Griffin Armament products and plan to purchase additional products going forward.
