Hot or Not - Long or Short - Thick or Thin!!
Suppressor - Silencer Cover
Then we have tested few new designs and all looks good thanks to the new Carbon Felt.
It will be cover for Suppressor and Silencer with small changes between both models, one made for AR and one made for BR.
Main idea with the cover is first to camouflage the black cylinder, protect it so you don’t burn yourself with 5-600 degrees hot metal and preventing mirage over time.
Also, it’s important to understand when you add a cover to the suppressor, the cover will act as an insulator and keep the heat much longer. Just like an insulated stove pipe.
Primary for Assault Rifle.
Made from Cordura (250°C) and two layers with FR Carbon Felt (1000°C).
Primary for Bolt Rifle.
Made from Cordura (250°C) and one layer with FR Carbon Felt (1000°C).
This is what we recommend:
Roll the cover nice on and fine adjust the Velcro. Don’t tight to hard!! The heat needs to go out some place sooner or later and if you tighten the cover to hard, heat will stay longer or too long and the suppressor will “never” cool down. If you need to take the cover off for faster cooling down, just pull the cover off, no need to open the Velcro each time. Like this its fast on or off.
When you measure the length of the Suppressor/Silencer, don’t include the quick detach if you have. (This is what they recommend so you can also take off the Suppressor when it’s hot…. Don’t ask!!) Its much smarter not to include the quick detach when you cover the Suppressor/Silencer, then it will be much easier to pull the cover off for faster cooling down if needed. I guess you will “never” take off the Suppressor in the filed like that.
After first shooting/s the Carbon Felt will “stick” to the coating on the inside of the Cordura. After that its easy on off. We do this so more heat comes faster out compared if it was stitched on and also has no weak parts in contact with the Suppressor surface. If it was stitched on, heat will stay longer between the felt and Cordura before it goes out.
We made the carbon felt same length as the suppressor/silencer to cover the whole length. The Cordura for the suppressor is 10mm shorter and the Cordura should come 5mm on the inside of the felt on each side. This is to prevent heat to reach the edge of the Cordura so it doesn’t melt. It will come some smoke and smell the first time, just need to “walk it in”. The Cordura for the silencer has the same length as the inner felt, since there is not so much heat compared with a suppressor.
Option to have extra Safety Rope (Glass Cord 550°C).
We recommend to add Safety Rope around the barrel also so the cover doesn’t move under firing. Remember to secure the rope good, lot of recoil to handle.
Suppressor cover has been tested with 3x30rds 5.56 on full auto for max test.
Silencer cover has been tested with 3 x 30rds 5.56 semi for max test.
Inner temperature +- “550-600 degrees” and outer temperature +- “200 degrees”.
All main tests have been done with “realistic shooting”, if you push the limit the Cordura will melt or the inner felt will burn.
