I wanted to see how hard it would be to make my own suppressor covers. I did some research and found the right material so that it would withstand up to 1800 degree temp. What do you guys think? I did not spend near as much as what they are asking for the ones I see for sale!

That's awesome...someone has some mad sewing skillz. Looks great! I need to break down and buy one but I need to do some research on which one I want. I'm not going to lie, I did have sticker shock when I looked at them.

I used a welding/Plumber's Pad for the inside and some ballistic fabric for the outside with Para-cord for the loops and wrap.
