The Metal Python Suppressor Cover is a fan favorite cover from Cole-TAC. We took our outstanding metal buckles and paired them with the awesome BOA straps from the Python cover. This is truly the best of both worlds.  This cover will not slip or shift around on your can.

The only suppressor cover that you can design.  With our unique BOA straps, your cover will always stay in place while shooting.  Don’t get burned again.

Weight: 2.2 oz

When shooting at long ranges, every little detail becomes critical. The further out you go, the more those details can make or break your shot. Ensuring you have a clear sight picture can be one of the most important. If you cannot see your target, you cannot shoot it. As you begin to shoot, your suppressor gathers a lot of heat. This heat begins to rise off of the suppressor and creates a mirage. This mirage can obstruct your view making it almost impossible to see the target. Our Metal Python Suppressor Cover is made to mitigate that mirage coming off of the suppressor.

Only from Cole-TAC can you get the leading suppressor cover retention system. Using our unique BOA locking straps, you cover is secured to your suppressor ensuring it stays in place while shooting. Other covers out there loosen up over time and begin to slide off. When you are on target, the last thing you need is to look up at your cover. We have done extensive testing and found that the BOA system keeps the cover in place round after round. Other great benefits of the BOA straps include allowing for stretching over time, and being able to use it on similarly sized suppressors.

We also know that the environments can differ requiring different concealment. This is why we allow you to build the color scheme you need. You can personalize all aspects of the cover to suit your needs. Only Cole-TAC allows you to pick every color all of the way down to the buckles.

Our covers are made from only the highest quality materials. The inside material is rated to 1800°F. The outer shell is a durable 1000 Denier Cordura Nylon that is water resistant and stands up against fading, abrasion, rot, and mildew. We even chose a high quality fire resistant thread to ensure every aspect of the cover can stand up to the toughest environments.

    The cover arrived in about 2 1/2 weeks which was right on schedule. Excellent craftsmanship and exactly what I ordered. Fantastic product from a great company.

  2. Matt (verified owner)

    This cover does a fantastic job of mitigating mirage. Shooting my rifle is night and day different with it. The craftsmanship is superb, and I’ll certainly recommend it to others.

  3. Eric John Denman (verified owner)

    Fit was dead on perfect. I just shot two days out of a local 3 day match series. Cover has not slipped once and does a phenomenal job of preventing suppressor mirage. I had a different companies cover that slipped a lot and fell apart after a year. This one is built very well and I can see it lasting a really long time. Well worth the reasonable cost.

  4. Ben Fugate (verified owner)

    Well made, looks great and holds tight to my suppressor.

  5. Joshua Cass (verified owner)

    Arrived right at the 3wk mark – which based upon reviews was right on point. Cover is extremely well made and the fit was perfect. Cover slips forward just a little after longer strings of fire, but nothing that is concerning. I was deciding between this and am Armageddon Gear cover, and after the reviews and a multitude of reading I went with the Cole-tac…no complaints here. Will recommend.

  6. David R. (verified owner)

    5 stars actually deserved 10. Excellent suppressor covers. Great service.

  7. Rene H. (verified owner)

    The cover is well constructed. A little gripe about the website though. I didn’t have my can handy to measure but the Ultra 9 dimensions were listed on the size chart, so I went with those. It turns out they are wrong, it should be nine inches even, not 8.75. Close enough, but not correct.

    • Ty

      Thank you for pointing out the difference in our sizing chart. We recommend the 8.75″ length for the Ultra 9 because of the .125″ chamfer on both ends of the suppressor. If you would like, we will gladly remake the cover for you. I will be emailing here shortly to ensure we take care of you.

  8. Rolando moreno (verified owner)

    It’s a fantastic suppressor cover absolutely happy with it no slippage fit perfect the buckles the material were all top notch.
    The reason for the four stars is because I also bought the matching pouch to store it and a suppressor with the cover does not fit in the pouch only the suppressor without the cover I’m going to call. Cole tac as soon as I get back from my Texas hunt to see if they can remanufacture me one that will fit with the cover in it overall I’m absolutely pleased

  9. Tucker M. (verified owner)

    I’m utterly impressed. This is my first suppressor cover. I’m running this on a 30 cal Form 1 can which is pretty slick (uncoated titanium tube) and it seems to stay in place even with it being so slick. Plans to sandblast and cerakote soon so there shouldn’t be any trouble.
    Nonetheless, it handles my 300 blackout well as well as .308. I don’t really mag dump with my 300 or my .308 so I think it should last a while. Heat mitigation is great compared to no cover at all.

    The hand stitching is superb. I got my cover color in Woodland/M81 and it’s perfect. Straps are heavy duty and the metal buckles will probably outlast me. Overall, I’m very satisfied.

  10. ronnie cookson (verified owner)

    This is my first cover and I could not be any happier.Quality and stitching are excellent.Great fit on my Liberty Regulator.Well worth the money.

  11. ADAM TURNBULL (verified owner)

    Great fit, great options for colors and design, and great website with the product builder.

    I own the baby and the full size now.

  12. Jon Given (verified owner)

    excellent quality. Fits my Hybrid snug and length is perfect. Added the Stricta cord and works as advertised. Will be coming here for any future suppressor covers.

  13. Jordan (verified owner)

    Got my cover in 10 days from the day I ordered (was expecting 2 weeks minimum). The fit is exactly perfect for my can. The craftsmanship is insane. I took it out yesterday for the first time and here are my takeaways, heat mitigation was awesome! So awesome that I forgot that the buckles are made of metal and they were hot. The fabric was warm but totally manageable. There was some slippage but after the cover heated up I was able to tighten up the straps. I’m sure that the longer it’s tightened down the better it will get. Super happy with my purchase.

  14. Taylor (verified owner)

    Haven’t had a chance to shoot with it yet, but this cover fits great. Based on the Suppressor sizing chart, the Metal Python perfectly covers my suppressor without blocking its locking collar.

  15. Kyle Massaro (verified owner)

    Received the cover in a timely fashion. Quality as promised and I liked all the cover/strap/buckle options. Fits my fan perfectly.

  16. Brian (verified owner)

    This is a great cover. Bought one for my Form 1 build and it fits perfectly. Love the colors available. The gray looks awesome on my rifle. It is put together really well, I got it way faster than expected. Great price for what you are getting. Buy with confidence!

  17. Jayson (verified owner)

    Just got my second one. Fits perfectly and looks amazing. Thank you guys for supporting our sport and putting certs on prize tables!

  18. Joseph (verified owner)

    Perfect cover. I was referred to Cole-Tac some time ago by SiCo when they no longer had Harvester BigBore covers in stock. I just got around to measuring the can and ordering during a holiday sale. I couldn’t be happier with the product. I’m pretty sure my Omega cover is also Cole-Tac, just supplied by SiCo at the time. I’ve hunted a lot with it in the elements and zero issues. I’m certain my new cover will hold up the same. I like the stricta cord addition. When hunting I have snagged the suppressor cover and I see this as a safety against it being pulled off. Packaging was perfect and robust and they gave me a decal. Nice touch. Manufactured here in NH too! Live Free Or Die! One word of advice, measure your can and order to your spec. Don’t rely on published specs alone.

  19. Brandon (verified owner)

    Received my 1st cover and cover was too short, not what I requested, offered an replacement and received it to find it the exact same length as 1st one but now it’s made for smaller diameter and wont even strap around can. No point trying another from here.

  20. Beck762

    Just took this Metal Python cover to the range for the first time and I am impressed, especially for the price. Running my can at a moderate rate with .308 AR platforn and a 6.5 CM bolt rifle no mirage and was able to handle the can with bare hands. The only quirk, and it’s a really small thing, is needing to seat the QD mount with the unlocking spanner which is really nothing. Just food for thought for those who run with multiple rifles.

  21. Keshawn (verified owner)

    Amazing fit and finish very high quality stitching. Color was spot on per my build. Looks great on my PRS rig and even looks and works great on multiple other platforms. I don’t think I will be burning my hands or a part of my leg anymore.

  22. Marti Powers (verified owner)

    First the Metal Python Cover is excellent quality! Ordered for SiCo Harvester for my daughter as she is going to start shooting NRL and NRL Hunter matches. This cover fits like a glove. High quality materials and workmanship. We have numerous other Cole-Tac items and they are all great quality! Secondly, my daughter and I want to thank Cole-Tac for being such a great sponsor of the NRL22X organization! My daughter was able to pull a certificate from the prize table to acquire this suppressor cover. Thank you for you support!

  23. John Baggett (verified owner)

    I don’t know why I waited so long to buy a suppressor cover, but I’m so glad that I finally did. The Metal Python instantly made life easier with shooting my precision rifle. I made a couple of minor adjustments after the first couple of strings of fire and it was good to go from then on. No slipping or moving. An absolutely great product.

  24. Aaron Sexton (verified owner)

    Functions as advertised. It fits and the straps work like they are supposed to. My one complaint is that I ordered it in Multicam black and it basically came almost straight black with little to no camo on it. I asked customer service about it and they said that they did not have any control over it and it was luck of the draw. Which sounds kind of ridiculous for a “custom order”.

  25. Rodney Ronnow jr. (verified owner)

    Great company Fast service could not ask for anything Better ordered many covers Quality and Workmanship Top Shelf WILL BE ORDERING AGAIN SOON

  26. Curtis Harrell (verified owner)

    Great people. Quality product, what more can you say. Got the product as promised. More companies should follow Cole-Tac’s lead. No BS just do what you say you are going to do. They hit the mark. Thank you for all you do.

  27. Robert Cottell (verified owner)

    This in the kind of business I love to support, superior product and fast service aside. I like the fact that my product was made by American Craftsman, thanks Will!! Compared to other cover companies Cole-Tac clearly comes out on top!! That NFA Review channel Patrion Gold discount is amazing. There is no reason to look any look any further for your cover needs!!!

  28. Eric Hirt (verified owner)

    Great product, great customer service and speedy delivery of a custom made item. Couldn’t ask for anymore

  31. Derrek (verified owner)

    Quality product! Installed super easy everything fit perfect. I’m very pleased with my purchase.

  32. Matt (verified owner)

    Bought 4 of them for custom length suppressors out to 15.5″ and they all fit and look great. I use them on long barrels in front of thermal scopes to mitigate the glow in the scope and they work beautifully!

  33. Justin L (verified owner)

    Quality as always. Custom order cover in 12 days from purchase to shipped. Top tier US business.

  34. Sam (verified owner)

    I’ll start off by saying that I did NOT use this for a suppressor. I used it as a “handguard cover.” I built an AR-15 with an Aero Precision Atlas M-Lok hanguard. For anyone that has the Atlas, you know that if you are holding the handguard directly, during sustained fire, it gets pretty hot, pretty fast, to the point where you can’t touch it. I love the extended-arm-thumb over-the-top-grip or whatever you call it. It’s the most controllable and comfortable for me. I wanted something that I could grip that would keep my hand cool. I wanted to keep the streamlined look and not put any plastic covers on the Atlas. A) because I think they are ugly and B) they don’t work very well and keeping your hand cool. I found out Cole-Tac makes custom covers with velcro and straps that can be custom made to a certain diameter. So I took a string, wrapped it around the part of the Atlas I would hold, measured the string to get the diatemer, added a little more just in case, then decided on a 6 inch length because I want the barrel to be able to give off heat, not be insulated. Filled out the form with all the information and received my order 2 weeks later. Packaged nicely and even says who it was sewn by. Quality is outstanding. No loose threads, no gaps between the different layers of material. Installation was simple and straighforward. Taking it the the range, I dumped 100 rounds in 5 minutes and got her smoking hot. Could NOT feel any heat through the cover. I wish I had a thermal camera, that would interesting to see the temperature difference. The velcro and straps are not uncomfortable to grip. I think this could be a great secondary use of these Cole-Tac covers. Highly recommend.

  35. bts1445 (verified owner)

    Though I don’t go to the range to burn through mag after mag to make my suppressor glow…I do shoot enough to where touching the suppressor would not be advised. The cover is a must for anyone shooting more than a few rounds unless you just enjoy sitting around the range by yourself waiting for it to cool down enough to pack it up. The quality has never let me down and have not had any issues. I have two of these and a Baby Python as well. Top notch and can’t recommend enough.

  36. Mike (verified owner)

    I ordered this model at 1.5 Diameter and 7.750 Length for my SIG MODX45 Suppressor. A note to anyone that orders one, don’t get one that slides on for this type of suppressor since the outside of the 3D printed one has sharp edges that will cut the material. This buckle style works much better.
    I am VERY pleased with the fit and function of this buckle style cover. I am so pleased with it, I ordered two more for my OSS RADX22 and my Nomad 7.62. Very pleased. Will order from here again when I receive the next Suppressor.

  37. Horsehead (verified owner)

    Absolutely awesome fit and well made product. Took to the range shot all afternoon on a 300WM and never moved.
    Ordering process was easy and shipping was as stated… will definitely purchase again.

  38. JUSTIN (verified owner)

    Fits perfectly, looks great!!! Very nice and highly recommended!!!! I will be ordering another!!!

  39. Robert Buday (verified owner)

    American made, beautifully crafted. This is my second cover from this company. I don’t care if they may cost a few bucks more to support an American company that adds to our economy and not Chinese companies that are trying to destroy our country. Thank you for a great product and supper fast shipping.

  40. Rick Benson (verified owner)

    Quality is top notch and as advertised. Wont use any other cover! Price is great for being able to customise it to what you want.

  41. Mark L (verified owner)

    I was looking for a light and slim cover that I could use running 5.7×28 through a .22 can. It gets much warmer than shooting .22 so I needed a solution that held up to the heat. The Metal Python was exactly what I needed. It has the perfect dimensions and keeps me from burning myself. Top notch and built to order. A great selection of color options to customize. Very cool.

  42. Dan Blalock (verified owner)

    I was in the market for a can cover. After reading about how to measure the can to get the proper size, I decided to call and speak to someone. The phone was answered by a person and all of my questions were answered. I then placed the order. My Metal Python order arrived within 2-weeks. Looks Great, Works as described. Top Notch Company and Top Notch Product!

  43. Derek H (verified owner)

    Moves forward all the time. I am constantly pulling it back on the can, and that’s after tightening it as tight as possible twice.

  44. Brian (verified owner)

    I ordered a custom size with the exact dimensions of my suppressor. The cover still has too much material and bunches up when tightened.
    In addition, no matter how tight the cover is it slides forward slightly due to recoil on each shot. Even tightened so tight I can’t slide it back in to place without loosening it, within 4-5 shots it is about an 1” overhanging the front of the suppressor.
    This is on a relatively light recoiling 7mm-08. I can’t imagine how bad this would be on heavy recoiling guns or under rapid fire.

  45. Ryan (verified owner)

    Customer service was awesome. Have not shot with it yet. Fits great and looks good. Got the stricta cord to help with sliding issues. Hope it works.

  46. Eric (verified owner)

    This company really stands by the no bs warranty. Had to have my cover replaced due to damage caused by one of my suppressors. They had a new cover to me within a week after returning my damaged cover. I have two covers from this company and both have held up fantastic even with interchanging covers to different suppressors. I don’t do any mag dumps or rapid firing so the mirage is totally gone with these covers on. Definitely recommend.

  47. JUSTIN (verified owner)

    I’ve purchased two now and I highly recommend!!! Very nice!!!
