How do I get a weapon shield?

Dear MSG C. W.,

There is good news and bad news on the HMMWV weapon shield. The good news is that although the shield was originally designed only for the M1114 Up-armored HMMWV, it now can be used on the M1025/M1026 also. The weapon shield kit, NSN 2510-01-498-4996, contains the shield, brackets, adapters, hardware and installation instructions and costs around $1,560.

The bad news is that there aren't many weapon shield kits available. If your unit wants the weapon shield, submit a funded requistion to TACOM using the correct Priority Designator and Project Code. If you have questions about ordering the shield, contact TACOM's Herb Reeves at DSN 786-8180/COM (313) 574-8180 or email

The weapon shield weighs 116 pounds and must be considered as part of the vehicle payload. If you're installing it on the M1114 for the first time, you will need the turret stop ring, NSN 2510-01-501-2691. If you install the shield on an M1025/M1026 with a serial number prior to 189936, you will need to install the improved turret lock ring, NSN 2590-01-192-4525.
