Noveske’s Diplomat started an interesting trend in muzzle devices. A device called the Flash Can came to be. The idea behind the flash can is to allow shooters to use their rifles indoors without being the victim of excessive flash and concussion. The main problem being they aren’t super useful outside of indoors close quarters combat, so when a shooter transitions from indoors to outdoors the flash can becomes a bit inefficient since it doesn’t hide flash, compensate, or reduce recoil. The Axelson Tactical Blast Shield Aims to make the most efficient flash can on the market.

Axelson Tactical Blast Shield - Review

The Rundown on the Axelson Tactical Blast Shield

So the Axelson Tactical Blast Shield sets itself apart from your normal flash can by being a quick detach item. It doesn’t just screw off leaving you a threaded barrel. The Axelson Tactical Blast Shield fit around your existing muzzle device and two different models are available for two different muzzle devices. The model I’m testing is the A2 blast shield. It will fit over any standard A2 muzzle device. The second is a blast shield for the ROC competition muzzle brake, also made by Axelson Tactical.

Attaching the System is child’s play. You have four pieces, the base, two halves of a ring, and the actual blast shield.
