The Delta Shield™ is Hardcore Defense's latest shield offering and falls between the Alpha and Bravo shields with respect to protection, weight, and cost. The Delta Shield™ was designed for sheriffs, patrol officers, school resource officers, and others looking for protection against AR-15s, AK-47s, and similar threats.

The Delta Shield™ is made from our most premium ballistic steel, specifically tempered to maximize resistance to 5.56 mm. It's only slightly thicker than the Alpha Shield™, keeping weight to just 18 lbs! For comparison, the Bravo Shield™ steel is thicker to absorb the higher energy .308 projectiles, and its titanium faceplate allows it to resist 5.56 mm bullets with even greater strike velocities. If you're regularly doing tactical entries, you probably want the Bravo. For more general "just in case" use, the Delta may be a better balance of protection, weight, and cost.
Like all Hardcore Defense products, the Delta Shield™ contains no ceramic or ballistic fiber components, has no shelf life or storage limitations, and can withstand grouped hits and edge hits better than typical ballistic fiber shields.
The Delta Shield™ uses the exact same handle assembly as the Bravo Shield™ and can withstand direct hits on the bolt heads.
Note that we are not planning on sending this shield to Demolition Ranch for testing (we have other plans for Matt and Cooter!). Trust us that it stops what we say it does, and no more. If you need more shield than this, consider the Bravo.

Purchaser is responsible for complying with all local, state, and federal laws regarding purchase and use of ballistic protection products. Hardcore Defense assumes no liability for illegal use or misuse of the product. It is usually legal for civilians to purchase and own body armor and ballistic shields within the United States. Residents of Connecticut and individuals convicted of a felony are prohibited from possessing bulletproof vests and other body armor; whether a ballistic shield counts as "body armor" is open to debate and interpretation may vary by jurisdiction.
