    I going to need a cover for my suppressor (when and if it ever comes in). Any good deals or suggestions for DIY? Thought about using something with mc exhaust tape.

    For can covers I've got an Armageddon high-temp, a Rifles Only HAD, a Bower's Griptastic (which is awesome on my direct thread Form-1 22lr suppressor), and a custom from hunter-steve on snipers hide. All 4 seem to work well but I think the RO HAD is my favorite...

    The custom one is for my direct thread Lane scorpion magnum can and I haven't had a chance to shoot that one yet. The Armageddon and Rifles Only covers are on QD cans and I have definitely noticed some movement no matter how tight I cinch them down.

    Most use some carbon or ceramic layer as a heat barrier to go up against the can. The griptastic is ribbed silicone and is super grippy (hence the name I guess) with no outer cover needed.
