    Suppressor Cover recommendations requested

    I FINALLY picked up my GSL Phoenix 9mm suppressor and really need a cover.

    Suggestions?

    $100 or less
    Diameter of 2"
    Length 7-7.5"
    My name is actually Scott and I really do live in Texas.

    I know, not very creative but it is factual.

    I've used one on my M4-2000 (high temp version for full auto), it works well.

    I have a Cole Tac for my Hybrid, you can get it with a tail so you can tie it off and not worry about the suppressor spinning itself off.

    I have the pegasusracing silicon tube for a cover of my 2" OD suppressor. I really like it. I have 6" left over from my order.

    When I was looking for 2” can covers,
    first place I looked was bowers (I have a bunch of other
    Suppressors & covers From them)
    The only 2” Diameter cover that had in their catalog was
    Brown... spoke to Tom and he confirmed.
    Was a couple years ago, might be worth a call

    Gotta tell you, im really happy with the Pegasus
    Cover

    Bowers doesn't have 2" covers any more.

    Cole Tac is who GSL sent me to.

    The Pegasus tube doesn't melt? Might be worth a try; I don't care about looks, just function.

    Not even a hint of melting...
    You could pay more for an even higher rated silicon tube
    but I see no reason to. $20 gets you two 6”’covers...

    I use the dish mat above. The ribs are on one side only. Put the ribs parallel to the bore, next to the suppressor and the ribs allow air flow. Works great!!

    Are you looking for a cover that stays on it all the time, or a thing you can put it in to store it while hot?

    if you shoot your gun classic mac style you need the former, if you really only shoot it on a forward magwell gun like a 31 you only need the latter

    I want something on it that when I'm shooting and it's hot I won't burn myself when I grab it / check it / remove it and forget it's hotter than a skillet of fried okra. Because none of us have ever done that. Never.

    I just bought the Redneck Rubber from Pegasus.

    That silicone smooth tube Will be hard to get on and off. The Bowers version has ribs and I own one and like it, I just realized it adds so much to the diameter that I don't really like that. Now I just use it naked and store it. smooth too might be nice though if you're never going to take it off. You're probably going to want to put some kind of either water or gel on to get it on.

    there's another reason why I run naked. Even with a silicone tube on, the ends of your suppressor are exposed. When you throw it in a bag hot it'll melt the bag. That was meaning I had to sit around for 30 minutes after I was done shooting and it was annoying, especially when you're paying by the hour for an indoor range! I'm hoping with that silicone pouch I can just toss it in and head out

    Fair points.

    I intend to leave at least 1/2" extra / overhang of the hose in the front, maybe an inch in the rear. The rear mount is only about 7/8" diameter and about 1" long so there's no real reason I would HAVE to cut the hose flush with the main body.

    The silicone sleeves are easy to get on/off, as long as you PUSH them off. If you try to pull, it becomes a chinese finger trap.

    Scott,
    I have never has that much problem with coaxial cans getting bad super hot. Like you I just picked up a GSL Phoenix. I an now considering sending a AWC full size MK9 (12" x 2")to Curtis Tactical to shorten and recore to a CT9KS 8". attached is link to Amphibian's web site. I would recommend what he shows down the suppressor info page of cutting a sheet of shim stock or flashing and inserting it between your inner and outer tube. Keeps inside of outer tube clean.

    I don't recommend running a suppressor cover ever unless doing low round count precision shooting.

    All you are doing with a suppressor cover is keeping the heat inside the can longer. You want to get the heat out of it. A cooler can lasts longer.

    Use an oven mitt or a kevlar glove or leather glove if you gotta grab it when it's hot.
