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.

    Blast shield

    Published by Charles Little on 4th Mar 2019

    As their tapermounts are incredible, so is their blastshield! Excellent fit and finish. I was looking for a 1.180x 24 tpi in the "option A" tapermount accessories, which this isnt, but it directs the blast forward as advertised and it probably will for 30,000 rounds. Nice design.

    Blast shield review

    Published by Stephen Page on 28th Jan 2019

    Steep price for what it is, but saying that, it's top notch quality and bombproof. Should work great on my 300BO pistol and Optimus.

    Great, flexible use component

    Published by Matt on 9th Dec 2018

    Can't beat the range of use, plus fit and finish for this component. Feels like the cherry-on-top for my high-end cqb build; and will support an Optimus perfectly!

    Title of review 230

    Great addition to a pistol build or SBR. Also we prefer these for use on the optimus for 300 BLK-308 WIN taper use. Add a titanium brake and it really cuts down the weight on the optimus.

    If I would have know how easy getting a silencer was through you guys. I would have done it years ago. This guy is a customer for life.

    Must for Optimus

    Published by Jason Yma on 17th Sep 2018

    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.

    Extremely well built. Can't wait for my rev9 to get here so I can use this on my 300blk guns!

    Great addition to the Optimus

    Published by Robert on 8th Sep 2018

    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.

    Awesome machine work

    Published by Chris clark on 22nd Aug 2018

    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.

    Works Great

    Published by Troy G on 13th Aug 2018

    Bought this for my Optimus to run 9mm in the mid size configuration. Simple to install, looks great, and has held up to 9mm, .300 BLK, and 5.56 really well. Had to purchase a thread protector separately but I now see there is an option to get it as a package deal.
