    i use the Silencerco wrap myself and really like it. the 7.5" works on both my Saker 556 and Saker 762 pretty well. as your fully aware, Silencerco stands behind all the products they sell as well. also if you pay attention to there sales they have them 30% off during various holidays.

    I have two wraps but really only use them to mitigate mirage for precision shooting. Otherwise my suppressors are bare and I use gloves to handle them.

    What I am wondering is, if you shoot enough to create suppressor mirage isn't that enough to create enough heat to be worrying about a wrapped suppressor?

This goes for burglars, muggers, and rapists, and even more so for policeman, bureaucrats, and politicians."

    I use the HAD wraps from riflesonly.com. Yes they mitigate heat, but more importantly keep me from scratching my suppressors running through the brush and mitigate mirage when when shooting long range. No, I don't do dumps with them on. I use them for hunting and bench rest shooting only.

    Maybe this is off course, but have to ask as there are many here. Any of these worth sale?

    This is the main reason I have always been interested in them...protection.

    I am concerned that they could potentially hold in the heat.

    It would be interesting to test long term, because my thinking from car days and wrapping headers. Holding in extra heat can stress the metal and cause premature wear and failure.

    I also like the Rifles Only HAD, . I use mine when shooting long range to mitigate the mirage. They have a few options including a pouch made of heat material and a new protector which is the "skinny" it is only the outer. I would not use a cover if I was doing multiple mag dumps.

    The answer lies in the purpose of the wrap... Reducing mirage for precision shooting. The wraps I use (from Rifles Only) are only on precision rifles that won't see a rate of fire high enough to worry about damage to my barrels or the cans.

    I don't use wraps on my issued M-4 or my personal carbines at all. The only reason I would consider it is if my clothing wouldn't protect me from the can during transition drills.
