Heat Shield for AR-15 (All Cerakote Colors)

We've already made it possible for you to turn your AR into art with gorgeous, patterned handguards! Now, add a pop of color under your handguard with this heat shield! These heat shields were specifically designed to fit the patterned handguards that we offer on this site. You can view the handguards here

The shield is designed to slide under the handguard and over the 556 castle bolt, and is attached using an end cap! Choose what style of end cap you prefer - one that has a sprocket with spikes, or a flat sprocket. Get it basic black or add any Cerakote color you wish!

Gas Block Fit: This will work with all low-profile (0.75") gas blocks.

Interior diameter of end cap:  0.800″

Heat Shield weight with end cap: Roughly 7 oz

Pocket length for gas block on heat shields as follows:

Pistol 5.5″ from the face of the upper 

Carbine  8.5″ from the face of the upper 

Midlength 10.5″ from the face of the upper.

Rifle length 12.625″ from the face of the upper.
Gas Tube Length:
Pistol length gas tube works with all handguard lengths
Carbine length gas tube needs 12" or 15" handguard
Mid-length gas tube needs 12" or 15" handguard 
Rifle-length gas tube needs 15" handguard
We will size the heat shield to fit, based on your gas tube length and handguard length selections. 
Installation: End cap is attached with two screws inserted in the foremost tactical rail holes on the handguard, at the 12 and 6 o’clock positions.  **Only works with 556 barrel nut and 0.75″ gas blocks (not included).
What's Included: You are buying a heat shield with end cap and screws only.

Color: Standard heat shield is anodized black. Want it in color? The choice is yours! ALL Cerakote colors are available as an optional extra (+$35 per color) - we must have the Cerakote color number, so please locate that using the link below to view all color swatches on Cerakote's site. Then just enter your desired color name & number in the field provided. ** The orange color you see in the pics is a custom color called UAR Burnt Orange. If that's the color you want, just enter that name in the color name text field.

RETURNS: Once you add any color, your heat shield becomes non-returnable. Only Raw or Anodized Black heat shields are returnable. If you purchase a color upgrade and then decide to change colors after your heat shield has been painted, we can do that, but paint already applied is not refundable and the new color will be charged at the standard color cost, ie. $35. 


 Made in the USA - lifetime warranty. 

ITAR RESTRICTED ITEM: Unfortunately, the heat shields are regulated by the International Traffic in Arms Regulations, and cannot be shipped to addresses outside the domestic United States.
