I’ve posted quite a bit about all the various muzzle brake shrouds and blast diverters out on the market lately. There’s the LANTAC BMD Blast Mitigation Device, the SureFire Warden Blast Regulator and most recently the VG6 Precision CAGE Device as well as a few others. I recently saw that Gemtech already released their Blast Jacket. Like with the other shrouds on the market the Blast Jacket attaches to their muzzle brakes and redirects muzzle blast forward away from shooters to the sides. The Blast Jacket is made out of titanium and weights in at just 3.5oz. They retail for $195 at Gem-Tech.com. Check out the Blast Jacket in action in the videos below.
The GEMTECH Blast Jacket is our newest accessory that mounts on ALL existing GEMTECH Quickmounts. The Blast Jacket throws the muzzle blast forward away from other shooters on the line and prevents the huge dust cloud we all experience when shooting in the prone. We made this out of pure titanium so it only weighs 3.5oz. and the stainless spring is capable of a million compressions, built to last. It keeps short guns short at 2.55″ overall and is a great addition to anyone’s load out.
