The new B-TM Heat Shield for the Ruger 10/22 from Samson Manufacturing adds instant style to your gun and protection for your hands, making it a great replacement for the factory heat shield.

The Samson Heat Shield is precision-contoured for a perfect fit on your Ruger 10/22 and converts your favorite semi-automatic .22 LR rifle into something that mimics the looks of the iconic Ruger Mini-14. 

B-TM Heat Shield Features:

  • Compatible with most models of the Ruger 10/22 Carbine
  • Mimics look of Ruger Mini-14 factory heat shield
  • Requires removal of dovetail rear sight for mounting
  • Made of a durable black injection molded glass-filled polymer

“The new Heat Shield is another exciting addition to our growing array of Samson-branded accessories for the legendary Ruger 10/22,” said Samson Strategic Sales Manager Chris Sullivan. “Owners of that rifle can really trick out their firearm with items from our line. Many shooters start with our iconic B-TM Folding Stock – which is now available in black oxide as well as the original stainless steel finish - and add the B-TM Sight Package, B-TM Flash Hider and/or B-TM Barrel Band.”

The matte black Heat Shield accessory easily and securely installs in minutes without gunsmithing, using a single screw (included). The Heat Shield is made of a durable, impact-resistant black injection molded glass-filled polymer for durability and heat resistance. The B-TM Heat Shield will fit any Ruger 10/22 with a factory carbine barrel and rear sight dovetail. It will not fit the 10/22 Takedown model.

B-TM Heat Shield Specifications:

  • Material: Glass-filled polymer
  • Finish: Matte black
  • Length: 8.375 inches
  • Width: 1.15 inches
  • Height: 0.55 inches
  • Weight: 1.3 ounces

MSRP for the B-TM heat shield is $23.99, and more information on this product and other gear from Samson Manufacturing is available at
