Review: I purchased this shroud through OPSGEAR and I have gotten nothing but pure joy from it.

The Supressor attaches to the barrel by screwing onto the barrel over a small, threaded ring. that is clamped to your barrel by three small set screws. It takes about seven or eight full turn to go from having the silencer completely off to completely on.
While it is not designed to quiet the report of the marker, it fits perfectly over the porting on my Evil Pipe kit, effectively directing any sound from the porting back at the user. (In other words, it made it quieter)

The fact that it looks amazing goes without saying, if you have any doubt, you can look at this: <

Now I noticed people here complaining about the set screws scratching your barrel.
NO DUH. Any time there are set screws used in anything, you have the potential to scratch the contact point, ask anyone who has a ASA cradle setup. The manufacturer and the retailer that I purchased this product through both recomend using electrical tape before clamping on the threaded ring. I have about three different sets of set screws on my barrel (for the Raider shroud, supressor, etc...), so I have been in the practice of doing this for quite some time. I suppose they could have included a big neon sign with the supressor saying "USE ELECTRICAL TAPE", but beyond that they've done everything they could.
Ignorance is no exuse. If you don't know enough to put someting between the set screws and the contact point, you'll get whats coming to you. Nuff said.
Conclusion: If you're into milsim, get this.
If you like scaring the crap out of newbs and speedballers alike, get this.
If you've ever wanted to be 007, get this.
10 out of 10
