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.

    Nice blast shield.

    Bought this to use with a minimalist flash hider and resistance 9. I was curious if the extra volume capacity when a resistance 9 was attached would sound different.

    Go Short

    Published by Robin Bagesse on 17th Dec 2021

    I purchased this one to run a short Optimus configuration over the EZ Brake on my 8.5" 300 BLK pistol upper. I don't notice any difference in noise level over the long configuration. Using the stand alone blast shield over the EZ Brake should help tame muzzle blast from super ammo . Machining and finish is perfect.

    Excellent, Almost Perfect

    Published by K on 13th Jan 2021

    Griffin is one of few companies that continue to hit the ball out of the park for SO many things. The Mini Blast Shield is one of them. It's insanely tough, and even though measurements show it's not long enough to use on their longer taper devices like the Flash Comp, it only sticks out a couple millimeters. I use it on a Hammer Comp, which is completely concealed. I don't fit it to a suppressor (will later on... thank you government) yet and only use it as a blast shield. Excellent product for that. It gets 4 stars instead of 5 because for some baffling reason... pun intended... it does NOT include the damn thread protector. Capitalism is great but nothing if not sometimes annoying. Regardless - I have it on a PWS 11.85" upper and it does the job just fine while being tougher than the bowl of nails I ate for breakfast with a beautiful finish. I just had to pay an extra 16 bucks or whatever for the thread protector an non-permanent thread locker to keep on until, well, the non-elected government officials decide I can get my can.

    Minimalist blast shield

    Published by Eric A on 7th Dec 2020

    Works great as a blast shield but even better with my Optimus for a more compact mid-length configuration. Highly recommended to purchase the thread protector separately.
