All new shrouds have removable caps for cleaning and replacement options. For extra shroud caps or tubes click here.
Hover over the options above to see larger images. When you find the part you want left mouse click and that option will highlight in RED. Choose front cap and base tube to complete the shroud.
Quality made here in the USA of 6061 T6 aircraft aluminum. Item slips over the barrel giving it a very aggressive short barrel look and really sets off the look of the gun....very nice.
Shorter one will fit all weapons that have 4-3/4" of barrel to cover with no obstructions
Longer one will fit all weapons that have at least 5-5/8" of barrel to cover with no obstructions
For the shroud to fit inside your hand gaurd/rail the opening of your rail must be at least 1-1/2" inside diameter.
We suggest the following for you gun as long as they meet the above specs also
Longer Shroud 6-1/2" (covers 5-3/4" of your barrel)
Shorter Shroud 5-5/8" (covers 4-3/4" of your barrel)
Through Hole - 5/16" (for .556 .223 and .22)

Easy to install upgrades look of rifle.
Awesome new addition to my AR
Posted by Terry on 18th Aug 2016
I have been adding items to my AR-15 for awhile now improving performance and looks and it never felt unique until now. I purchased a custom barrel shroud and hoped that it would look good on my Sig Sauer M400. I couldn't be happier with it! It looks awesome! I know it's not a suppressor, it's kinda the opposite. It is loud as hell and spits flames like a mad dragon. As a military veteran that worked with explosives, I love it!!! I will definitely be ordering more products from Kineti-tech and recommending them to my shooting buddies.

Great product, shipping was pretty fast and email updates were nice. Installed no problem. Threads were precisely cut, and no slop or burrs. Threaded on dry like butter. Installed onto a 16" target barrel under a 12" keymod rail and fit nicely underneath. Looks great and balances the rifle out. I'd definitely order again. If I SBR, it will be with one of these on the end that's for sure. I get compliments on this (I went with ported flat nose and solid AAC style body) and have referred everyone here who asks. Thanks

The barrel shroud is well made and finished, obviously top quality. The long version worked perfectly on a SCAR 16 with 16.25" barrel. Topped off with the 1/2-28 threaded cap and a VG6 Epsilon brake with a VG6 C.A.G.E., just the right tough to balance the thin looking barrel.

Couldn't be any happier with this barrel shroud and all the options Kineti-Tech offers. Great job guys! Thanks!!
An excellent and quality replacement for the standard flash hider
Posted by Jeffrey Hatwig on 11th Jun 2015
I just recieved my "create your own" ported concave barrel shroud for my new Ares Armor 16" Wylde Harpe march upper with a 12" flaoting handguard. It fit perfectly and about 3/4" of the shroud base is tucked neatly inside the handguard. The photos on Kinetic Tech really don't do justice to the finish. The overall quality of the end cap and the shroud are first class. Both the knurled concave cap and the "butt" plug came with rubber 0 rings for a secure seal. Now I cant wait to hit the range here in Fresno, CA...and be told "supressors" are illegal.
Great product Kinetic Tech...I will recommend your product to friends and associates.

Well built, easy to install, looks great on any barrel, with any hand guard. I suggest this to anyone who wants to add character to their rifle!
Posted by Dale on 24th Dec 2014
Very well constructed, attention to detail is awesome. I can't say enough about well built these things are. Such amazing quality. Keep it up, and I will always be a customer!
The best out there
Posted by Unknown on 23rd Dec 2014
Well made fit perfect just what I was looking for. Cant beat the price. I'll probably get another end cap so I can change the look of it when I feel the need for a diff look.
Posted by Brian on 17th Dec 2014
I searched online for a while for a barrel shroud and didnt really see one that I liked. I decided to check the Kineti-tech site and I am glad I did. I quickly chose the options i wanted and headed to the checkout. The product came really fast and I was impressed with the quality. I would defintely recommend this product. Now I might get another cap just to switch it up once in a while.
carbine length barrel looks awesome!
Posted by Geoffrey on 11th Dec 2014
I am very pleased with the way this turned out. If you are trying to make your 16 inch barrel dissappear this is definitely the way to go. I was worried that that this would look like a soup can threaded on my gun. I was totally wrong. The shroud is a perfect fit for the rifle and is thin and compact, sleek and adds so much to the gun. Everyone that has looked at it wants to order one and its the coolest gun on the block! Granted, it is a cosmetic piece, but I now have a larbbge forward grip on my barrel that has provided me with the ability to hold on while shooting. I do believe it's easier to hold on to the barrel instead of the forward grip. My wishlist for this would be a 7 inch shroud that goes all the way to the gas block but until it's made I am 100% happy with my order!
Multi Hole with Threaded End Cap=5 Stars
Posted by Leo on 12th Nov 2014
The Multi Hole shroud allowed us to install spikes and the threaded end cap allowed us to add a muzzle device to the shroud and still maintain the looks of a 16" barrel. The purpose of the spikes and adding an aggressive type muzzle device was for the customer who is an animal control officer to keep animals at bay. This set up was a success. Many Thanks to Kineti-Tech for an awesome durable product and the willingness to provide technical support at a moments notice. Thanks Again, Conring PWS

The shroud looks great and gives the AR an aggressive look while keeping the cost low.
solid construction, high quality
Posted by Billy on 30th Jun 2014
I added the muzzle brake and it works well enough. Overall quality is awesome. Fits perfectly. for my midlength gas system.
Highest quality, best price
Posted by Craig on 16th Jun 2014
After looking at several other company's offerings, I decided on Kineti-Tech due to their diversity of options. They just so happen to be one of the cheapest as well. Well built, received in prefect condition, super easy to install. Will definitely buy more.
Posted by Jorge` Roque on 7th Jun 2014
These are great. This is the second shroud I have bought. Very well made. The second will go on a new AR upper I just bought. Thanks for a really nice product!! will buy again.http://youtu.be/83284LfvOhc here is the video link.http://youtu.be/83284LfvOhc

Ordered mine with the multiport muzzle break and was very impressed with the build quality. Just ordered 2 more for another AR and my SKS bullpup.
First Class Products for AR-22
Posted by Alfonso J Citarella on 16th Apr 2014
Kineti-Tech barrel shrouds are high quality and look awesome, they are truly "top of the line" products. I created my own barrel shroud from Kineti-Tech for my AR22 build and I couldn't be happier, it looks and fits great. This company has top notch customer service and every time I emailed them with question, Mike responded quickly with an answer. It was a pleasure to do business with Kineti-Tech and I would definitely buy from them again. Thanks!
Great addition to an AR-15
Posted by CJ on 4th Mar 2014
These shrouds are the best on the market. They look great and a great price. I plan on buying another one very soon.
Posted by Gary Clouse on 23rd Feb 2014
These are great. This is the second shroud I have bought. The 1st I did some modifying. I rethreaded it to 14 x 1.0mm LH for an SKS that is going in a Bullpup stock. I also drilled the hole out larger for the larger caliber. Very well made. The second will go on a new AR I just bought. Thanks Guys for a really nice product!!
Great fit and finish.
Posted by Unknown on 11th Feb 2014
I recently purchased my second barrel shroud from Kineti-tech. They shipped it out quick. As expected the quality is top notch, I recommend purchasing from them.
Posted by Daniel on 11th Feb 2014
Good Day All
I purchases the shorter plain shroud with Daniel Defence Cap for my Ruger SR22 and could not be happier, if you are on the fence about getting one of these don't be the quality is fantastic.
Posted by Adam H on 18th Jan 2014
This is the first and only AR15 shroud I've purchased and I'm more than impressed!! The fit and finish on the shroud is legit!! Looks awesome on my AR!! I havn't fired the rifle with it on there yet, but I cant wait to see how it shoots with it installed!!
Posted by Jason Bundy on 5th Dec 2013
Awesome stuff. This was my fourth shroud, looking at getting another.
Added badass factor
Posted by jordan on 15th Jul 2013
The quality of these shrouds are better than ANYTHING else on the market. Would have paid double for this quality. Anytime I go to the range I get asked 2-3 times about it. Top notch customer service to boot. Will buy from many more time.
The BEST around
Posted by Derek on 28th Jun 2013
Kinetitech says "simply the best" ....well I am now a proud owner of 2 shrouds from these guys. Everywhere I go I get comments and praise. Quality is better than anything else on the market HANDS DOWN. I can say now...yes the shrouds are "simply the best". You guys ROCK!!!
Posted by Unknown on 6th Jun 2013
Can not believe how much different it made my rifle look. People want to take pictures of it to show their friends, will be ordering others to change out when i want a different look. Thank you for such an amazing product.
Posted by Unknown on 31st May 2013
These things are Bad ass. I got two of them and the fit and the construction are very nice. Took only 4 days to get to the house. If you are on the fence over getting one i can say that it is 100% worth the money.
Envy of the range
Posted by JB on 30th Mar 2013
This thing made the whole range take a second look. No fewer than ten people came over and asked about it. Perfect in every way
Bad to the Bone!!
Posted by Jeff G on 19th Mar 2013
This shroud took my rifle to a whole new level of bada$$! This baby was the finishing touch I was looking for. Based on other reviews, I knew that this shroud was going to be well built. Once I had it in my hands I was still blown away with the fit, finish, and overall quality of the workmanship. I chose the multiport muzzle brake, the 6" knurled and diamond center ,and the knurled ported look back. I could not be happier!
Posted by Unknown on 25th Feb 2013
I did a build-your-own and the quality of the craftsmanship, fit, weight, feel, and appearance are second to none! Surpassed my expectations! Fast service as well! Will be spreading the word about them. Ordering more soon.
Awesome Product..Bad Ass!! Looks Mean..
Posted by Dave on 17th Feb 2013
Fits great and very nice qaulity. Excellnet custer service!!! I will be buying more items from Kineti-Tech again.
Worth it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Posted by Unknown on 10th Feb 2013
Love the product , it is well built and prcision craftsmanship, would buy again and will recomend to others
Posted by Greg C. on 7th Feb 2013
This is the second product I have bought from Kineti and they keep doing a great job. Super fast shipping and great quality.
Awesome fit on AR
Posted by Tony I. on 8th Dec 2012
Quality product, nice weight and feel like a real can! Fits perfectly into quad rails of my Bushmaster A2. It gives it a nice SBR look. Definitely recommended "build your own shroud" and free shipping to my other buddies.
Posted by JohnC in Mississippi on 24th Oct 2012
These products are the very finest on the market. If you want a cheap heavy steel fake can with sloppy threads, then you can find them on the net for around 20-30 bucks. If you want the finest CNC machined product with the most superb finish and threads like silk, then you've come to the right place, my friend. What a great offering. I mean, to actually get to pick the can and end caps that you want, for what I consider to be a great price. I've looked high and low....no need to look further. No one else offers this. These are the finest out there. Go ahead....order it. You won't be sorry. Getting ready to order 2 more for my other rifles. Thanks Kineti-tech! Oh and BTW.... the customer service are second to none.
Posted by Josh M on 20th Oct 2012
I am happy to have found Kineti-tech, their cans are the nicest I have found. I will be a repeat customer!!
Posted by Unknown on 14th Oct 2012
Got the 6" Knurled ported concave, Multihole, Hotdog back and it looks awesome. Received within 5 days. Will be ordering another one soon. Fits my S&W MP 15-22 and S&W AR15 .223 perfectly. Quality product, great price, Thanks!
None Better ANYWHERE
Posted by Eric H. from the Bluegrass State on 28th Sep 2012
There's nothing even close out there to compare to the top quality design, fit, finish, and function of the Kinetitech Muzzle Brake/Barrel Shroud. This is my THIRD from them. I designed this one myself using their simple point and click selection page which was extremely easy to use. Four days later my newest addition to my AR 5.56 collection had a very unique and desirable brake/shroud hanging off the end of the barrel. Don't even think of buying one from someone else's website. These are by far the best available.
Great Product !!!
Posted by Emile G. from Louisiana on 22nd Sep 2012
I never buy second rate products. Buy the best, and you're never disappointed. My new Brake/Shroud has an excellent finish, tight snug fit, works as advertised, and ships to your front door in just a few days. What more do you want? GET IT! You'll be glad you did!
Bought for M&P 15-22
Posted by Lino Solorzano on 8th Aug 2012
I bought the diamond center shroud and just so you customers know, the pointed part the the "drop" is towards the back of the shroud with the knurled section and the round part of the "drop" is toward the front. With that said, my choices matched up perfectly and couldn't more happy. Finally took it out today and completely forgot the shroud was on my rifle, which is a good thing. I figure the only way the back section is even seen on the 15-22 is if you get the 4 inch because mine got tucked right underneath the quad rail. This definitely raises the eyebrows of your fellow firearm enthusiast who want to get a closer look. Great Job.
Posted by Keith G from Louisiana on 2nd Aug 2012
I was looking for a "barrel shroud" for my Custom Colt M4 and stumbled upon Kineti-Tech's website. Their shrouds not only looked great but also seemed to have some real function. The real test (for me) was waiting to see it. When it arrived I was more than pleased! It was not only very aesthetically pleasing but it added real function to the firearm and was very well made and robust. I will be ordering more of these in the future for other projects and maybe even getting a few barrels threaded just to add the Kineti-Tech shrouds. My ONLY issue is that it's called a shroud... when that word does not even do it justice. It honestly (IMO) adds some integrity to the barrel and really does keep the barrel much cooler. I am 100% pleased with the product and hope these guys stay around for a very long time. I may even order a few spares just in case they don't because I don't think I could ever find another I like even half at much! "Long Live Kineti-Tech!"
SWEET; Excellent product
Posted by Christopher on 27th Jul 2012
Received the barrel shroud and absolutely love it; it looks great on my DTI-15M4 5.56/.223 rifle.This is an excellent well made product for the money, the fit is nice and tight and it is built very well. Everyone that sees the rifle loves it. I highly recommend this product!!!
Posted by Greg on 14th Jul 2012
I will have a new upper receiver going on next week and will submit more pics. I am VERY satisfied with this purchase, I love the aggressive look it adds to my colt M4. Everyone at the range and all of my friends will probably be buying one of these from you guys. Thanks!
Great Product! LOVE IT!
Posted by weapon enthusiast on 11th Jul 2012
Received the barrel shroud and absolutely loved it; it looks great on my standard .233 rifle. This is actually my second purchase of one of these items from this company and I have been pleased each time with both the product and the service (shipping time). I fully recommend this item for any other weapons enthusiasts looking to save money on a can AND get that SBR Carbine look as well! Just to confirm, standard M4 / M16 rifles with 16 inch barrels (6-7 inch barrel exposure on fore end) works best, and diameter of the outter barrel shroud DOES fit underneath the S&W M&P 15-22 rifle hand guard if necessary. 1/2 x 28 thread on the inside front of the barrel shroud to conceal the original exposed 6-7 inch barrel of AR.
really nice product
Posted by Matthew Hardy on 6th Jul 2012
This is a very good deal for the money, the fit is nice and tight and aside from the breacher style cap the paint is immaculate, the little added weight seemed to steady the gun better for the follow up shots when using a bi-pod. overall I am very happy to have it and it completely changed the look of my rifle, it looks alot more aggressive now. I have had many compliments and all my AR15 owning friends have started the process of creating thier own custom shrouds for delivery.
Posted by sketch on 29th Jun 2012
Im usualy pretty skeptical about buying items like this ...... but I gotta say I recieved this today and it Rocks! .... it's a sweet piece and Im sure once my brother see's it he's probably gonna be ordering one too!! Thanks so much for the quick shipping and for selling me a nice piece!! Thanks!!
Posted by Josiah Christoffer on 29th Jun 2012
Just bought a barrel shroud for my 15-22. Got it way faster than I thought, and install was a breeze. Excited that my 15-22 looks cooler than everyone elses now.
KILLER LOOKS, GREAT PRICE
Posted by FRANK P. on 29th Jun 2012
ORDERED THIS PRODUCT , MOUNTED IT ON AN HK416D .22.. (NEEDS MUZZLE THREAD ADAPTER FOR HK) BUT FIT ABSOLUTELY PERFECT. THE QUALITY OF WORKMANSHIP SHOWS, IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THE TRUE TACTICAL LOOK WITHOUT THE HASSLE... YOU NEED ONE OF THESE!
Looks Like Real Suppressor
Posted by Brian on 18th Jun 2012
Fit great. Exactly as stated on website. Shipped quickly. Got in aboout 4 days.Light weight. Did not change balance of my rifle.
