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

    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.

    Minimalist blast shield

    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.

    Using this mainly with the 300bo setup when suppressed, then as a blast shield when in suppressed on all of my rifles. Like the short configuration of the Optimus a lot. Sweeeet, does exactly what it’s supposed to do. Thanks again Griffin.

    The product fit well onto my resistance 45 supressor and has a nice finish. I purchased this so I could mount my supressor on my fixed barrel rifle, however this is only one of two components that you need to accomplish the task. The cost seems high for what it is, basicly a 2" long hollow tube with male threads on one end and female threads on the other. I also had to purchase a flash supressor that threads directly to my barrel. The blast sheild then threads between the actual supressor and the flash supressor, like a coupling. So you have to shell out $200 to mount on to a rifle. I don't understand why they couldn't make the blast sheild thread directly onto the barrel. If that was the case and it still sold for around $100 I would rate it 5 stars
