I recently took my 11.5″ AR pistol, which is equipped only with an A2 birdcage, to an indoor range. Needless to say, I wasn’t well-received. If you’ve ever shot in close proximity to someone with an aggressive muzzle brake, you’re aware that another person’s blast is pretty irritating. Gasses meant to keep the muzzle stable are often directed in inconsiderate directions. The Strike Industries OPPRESSOR line has sought to deal with this problem. In its newest configuration, the OPPRESSOR Universal will slip on for use with almost any muzzle device you have on your blaster.
Strike Industries @ TFB:
The Strike Industries OPPRESSOR Universal is a blast shield that works with almost any muzzle device on the market that has a maximum outer diameter of 25.00mm (0.98”). This OPPRESSOR U version works just like the rest of the SI OPPRESSOR family and redirects blast and sound while maintaining the recoil reduction of muzzle devices.
The OPPRESSOR Universal: NEW From Strike Industries
The OPPRESSOR Universal is a blast shield that slips over most existing muzzle devices. The blast is directed forward, allowing your muzzle device to maintain its intended function. It connects via Strike’s proprietary 3-lug QD base. The core is steel and the body is 6061-T6 aluminum. The entire family of OPPRESSOR devices is multi-caliber compatible. Use them on your 5.56/.223, 7.62/.308, or 9mm firearms. The OPPRESSOR U is available in SI Black, Red, Blue, and FDE.
