The SureFire Warden direct-thread blast regulator is precision-machined of rugged stainless steel, heat treated and coated with a durable Cerakote™ finish. The Warden enhances the refined appearance of any weapon with a 1/2-28 or 5/8-24 threaded barrel, protecting the barrel’s exposed threads from damage or fouling in lieu of a flash hider or muzzle brake. Its diffuser design directs the muzzle blast forward when the weapon is fired. Measuring just 3.0 inches in length, the Warden adds a mere 6.1 ounces to the weight of the weapon, minimizing any effect on weapon handling characteristics. Unlike our award-winning sound suppressors, the Warden is not an NFA device and is available wherever SureFire products are sold, without any of the restrictions associated with suppressors.
