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.

Paracord has been holding up so far on mine.

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.

What is the name of that sight ? And how did you make that kydex wrap ? Where did you put the M- LOKs ? And what all did you use ?

I lined the inside of the handguard with two layers of aluminum foil duct tape because I didn't like getting hit in the face with all of the excess gas.  I just cut a long piece of tape to a slightly longer than handguard length, peeled the backing paper off and slid it into the handguard without touching anything until both ends were sticking out of the handguard, then carefully stuck it into place.  I used a long round bristle brush shoved through the handguard to make sure the tape was firmly stuck.  I repeated with two more pieces of tape, overlapping by about 1/3 width of the tape.  Then repeated for a second layer.  When I had all the tape in place, I trimmed the ends with an X-Acto knife to clear the handguard nut and receiver.  No more gas in the face.  I also put the ATI heat wrap around the outside.  

 

It has held up well for about 400 rounds of everything from heavy buckshot and slugs to light 1 oz birdshot.

Sorry for the poor picture. I used kydex and bent it around the handguard and then used some camo scope wrap I had to keep it in place and give me more of a grippy surface. Unsure as to the longevity of this but I think the kydex will help the wrap withstand the heat.
