Looking for one of these for the 18" SLP. Tired of burning my hands/fingers on the barrel.

How easy to install? Attaches to barrel via--what? Is the one you mentioned compatable to 22 Slp?
Looking at the picture of the parts on the manufacturer's site, it looks like it does attach to the barrel via two clamps near the front. Doesn't look like it will fit the mk1 versions without dremeling a slot for the rear sight and rail.

The shield is made of polymer, so I'm guessing modifying it to fit the mk1 shouldn't be too hard to do. Like I stated, it looks like you just need to cut a slot out for the raised part of the barrel toward the rear. But I do think using the iron sights on the mk1 is out of the question once you put on the heat shield.

Don't know about the Mk1, but for mine, a little clearancing was required to the handguard for the rear clip of the heat shield to properly encompass the barrel. Quick work with a pocket knife.
