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.
effective on short barrels, the unique design of the QD Blast Shield
directs concussive force forward allowing an end user to rapidly
reconfigure muzzle device function. Ultra strong 17-4PH stainless steel
and Tig welded construction provides a robust material and build method
to withstand intense use and full auto fire without fear of failure.
The body is fluted in the same way as our QD suppressors, increasing
strength to weight ratio for added geometrical strength, while
increasing surface area for faster cooling.
Melonite QPQ surface treatment provides an extremely hard, durable, and attractive finish.
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
The Griffin QD Blast Shield is compatible with our line of SDQD mounts in 7.62 and 5.56mm, Including the Flash Comp, Muzzle Brake, Compensating Flash Hider, and Tactical Compensator. It is also
compatible with A2 Compensators that fall within the USGI A2 spec
blueprinted dimensions. Although many companies manufacture A2 style

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.
interface was designed to fit the USGI A2 government contract compliant
muzzle devices. We cannot guarantee fitment with an A2 style
compensator due to the broad tolerance range of both import and domestic
devices from various brands. For guaranteed fitment, we recommend the
purchase of a Griffin mount.
