|Stampede ECS tactical shield. Protects against darts. adds to poor posture|
Cutting to the chase straight away, the shield is not as versatile as you'd hope. Unfortunately it does not fit on all blasters, including the one that probably made the most sense in the Vulcan EBF-25. Why you ask?
|Vulcan with the shield. Dude.. do a sit up or something.. fatty.|
From this angle it doesn't look that bad, except if you look closer you'll realise the tactical rail clips are sitting several cm above the actual rail. That's because the Vulcan is too wide, leaving no room for the shield to successfully fit around the blaster.
Therefore in turn, the tactical shield won't fit stocky blasters like the Firefly or the Dart tag Furyfire. Soo.. trying it out on blasters that it WILL fit...
|it's just not gonna fit. Dammit!|

Let's try it with some other blasters now:
At first I thought it wouldn't fit the Barricade because of it's fat barrel, but it ended up gripping nicely at the back of the blaster. I don't know if you'd really use it on a blaster such as this, but if you add a stock it might have a pseudo assault rifle look? Maybe? ok I'm clutching at straws:)
Ok... the Maverick.. not really comfortable..
|Shield on the Spectre. At least it's not at the back..|
