I use some soft rubber rail covers. I'm thinking of putting on a hand stop also. My first match with it is next week so I may be changing things up after a real day of shooting it.

I tried a suppressor cover. Looked good, but started having feeding issues. Took it off, back to perfect function. I’m thinking that the cloth might have been pushing in the holes and dragging on the piston a little?  Haven’t tried it since.

I just make a kydex wrap and secured it to the front of the handguard by 2 M-LOKs. Will see how it works when I take it to the range tomorrow.

So I tested it out today and it worked great! After 100 rds the kydex was hot but still manageable.
