My buddy “Chummerz” who works for Rainier Arms gets his hands on a ton of the newest stuff on the market. Recently he shared a few pictures of a new Quick Detach Blast Diverter that will be coming soon from Fortis Manufacturing. Blast Diverters or Blast Shields have really been taking off in popularity over the last few years as more and more people realize the potential benefits they offer, especially when it is a QD version that can be installed over a muzzle brake for indoor use and quickly removed for outdoor use letting you utilize the full benefits of the muzzle brake.
There isn’t a ton of information available yet for the new Quick Detach Blast Diverter from Fortis Manufacturing (shown below) but it appears to be mounted to the also coming soon Rainier Arms XTC 2.o muzzle device. While this would make for a great combo, I’m hoping it means it will be compatible with many different muzzle devices which I feel would make it even more of a huge success than it is already guaranteed to be.
As with most sneak peeks, this QD Blast Diverter appears to be shown in the white, meaning it has not had its protective coating applied. Most likely you will see a Melonite, Anodized or Phosphate coating on the finished product. Chummerz said he will be hitting the range with the new Fortis Manufacturing QD Blast Diverter this week and will get some video, etc. Be sure to keep tabs on his Facebook and Instagram accounts at the links below.
