Standing up to extended strings of semi-auto/auto fire extreme temperatures
The Magpul Suppressor Cover – 5.5in is the company’s first product able to stand up to the extreme temperatures caused by extended strings of semi-automatic and automatic fire and still protect the user against burns by keeping internal can temperatures at safe levels and cool-off times short.
The Magpul Suppressor Cover – 5.5in is made up of a heat-resistant polymer sleeve overlaid onto a raised stainless steel heat shield that mounts directly to the suppressor body with steel clamps. It minimises heat transfer to keep external cover temperatures up to 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit cooler than the surface of the suppressor by allowing high volumes of cooling airflow across the can, reducing retained heat and the damage it can cause.
Magpul states its suppressor cover withstands United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) suppressor abuse requirements and numerous cycles of suppressor surface temperatures over 1,300 degrees F with ease, all while allowing the shooter to sling the rifle without burns or melted clothing.
This suppressor cover is also an enhanced thermal insulator and signature reduction device, which significantly mitigates negative visible mirage effects to the shooter’s sight picture, reduces external suppressor body impact damage, and lessens the chance of accidental contact injury or other heat-related damage to personnel or equipment during weapon firing or cool down.
Optimised for 1.5in outer diameter round suppressors with a body length of approximately 5.5in (not including attachment hardware/ interface) such as the Surefire SOCOM556-RC2. Other lengths are in the works and are coming soon. Stay tuned.
