Re: What do you put over your muzzle brake?

How about something like this ...



Just google for "scope and muzzle cover" and you'll get quite a few ping.

Good luck!

This is the only braked rifle I have, so not too familiar with 'em. One of Kirby's 'slim', medium, PainKiller brakes:

There is also the condom/ruberband option.

Thanks for the input on that particular system, guys, but that is something I just wouldn't use for how I hunt. Too bulky and too slow and I'd have the other half of the trees needles stuck in the nooks and crannies of that scope/action/muzzle cover--and the muzzle is still not completely sealed.

The finger cot is basically a small condom and works well, but doesn't take too much abuse before your muzzle is again exposed to moisture, dust, debris...

finger cot:



May just have to get more creative with the e-tape unless there's some other ideas out there...?

Duct tape...maybe that's the answer! Good 'ol Red-Green... Duct tape did cross my mind, but for the sticky mess it would leave behind...
