With Surefire top quality is a given. I have owned and used this product for a while now and I have only one knock against it. The fact that you have to buy one of the Surefire suppressor adaptable flash hiders to be able to put the Warden on your rifle and you are around the $300 mark when all said and done. That seems to be pretty salty for a blast mitigation but this isn't out of character for Surefire, High end High quality. It attaches just like one of their suppressors which is neat but this means you have to time the muzzle break with shims (get the proper amount of rotation to align the ports on the break,) they are included along with excellent instructions that will tell you how to do it for different styles of shooting. The materials Surefire used to make the Warden clean up VERY easy. The end of the Warden is open which allows it to be very effective at reducing recoil. I was using a similar product that had been on the market for some time with a slightly different design and the Warden reduces recoil much better! Comparing against the other brand ( Noveske KX3,) the Warden is slightly louder at the shooter because of the open end but it still effectively reduces the blast to anyone to the sides and the open end is part of what allows the Warden to reduce the recoil so well. I am very impressed with this product it is high quality throughout including the instructions that come with it! The only knock is the price but if you know anything about Surefire you should be prepared to pay a little more for it. The Warden performs very well at everything it says it will and after you have it on your rifle it is very easy to remove for cleaning and is a very good looking accessory. If the price isn't a problem I would highly suggest it. My rating couldn't be a 5 because of price but I feel it would be 4 3/4 if I could have rated it exactly what I wanted.
