Griffin Armament QD Blast Shield Pre-Order

Griffin Armament opened pre-order today for their new muzzle device, the QD Blast Shield, a “shield” style muzzle device add-on that pushes the flash and concussion forward away from the shooter and any potential team members.

There are several “shield” muzzle device options on the market, and this looks to be another good one.

From Griffin:

The QD Blast Shield was designed to offer significant concussion reduction for the end user and other team members operating in the immediate vicinity. 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 unique design of the QD Blast Shield directs concussive force forward while triangular gas flow pockets allow the muzzle device to retain it’s specific performance goals. Ultra strong 17-4PH stainless steel provides a robust material to withstand intense use and full auto fire without fear of failure. Fluted geometry in the triangular shield lightens the unit while providing internal front supports for the muzzle device.

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

The QD mechanism is fast, positive, and free of wear prone geometry commonly found in ratcheting devices. The QD Blast Shield also comes with a shim set and overtravel stop to refit your A2 compensator for optimal use.

The Griffin QD Blast Shield is compatible with our line of QD 5.56mm mounts, Including the Flash Comp, Muzzle Brake, Compensating Flash Hider, and Tactical Compensator. It is also compatible with A2 Compensators that fall within the NATO spec blueprinted dimensions. Although many companies manufacture A2 style compensators not all of them are dimensioned properly. Not Compatible with BCM, BCE or PWS muzzle devices.

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

It’s a bit on the expensive side at $149.99, but if you already have a Griffin muzzle device like their excellent Flash Comp, this might be worth it. Check it out on

    Something to bear in mind – with that funky QD lever on the side of it, it does not appear to be designed to, and probably will not, fit underneath handguards. I kind of like the whole “tuck the blast deflector under the handguard” look, but that’s just me :).
