Nice rain suppressor.

Could I get mine without a hole at the end? Don't want any rain getting in there.

Agreed. The problem I have is the loss of "aimability" out weighs any acoustical advantage you gain.

That's pretty much where I'm at so I didn't vote. I'd pick one up if it could be shown to be better at what it does than the Whoosh. The price is pretty dang good.

I've had about half a dozen different raincovers and haven't had any issue with aiming yet. Actually, I don't have to do anything differently at all when I switch between barrels.

Is the very outer piece going to be removable in case someone wants to put some... umm.. moisture absorbing materials in it.

I hate to be a wet blanket, but this kind of thing is treading on really thin ice. The "rain cover" subterfuge is paper thin, and will provide absolutely no legal protection if you attract the attention of some official type.

A company called BOA (Barrels of America, used to make brass marker barrels like J&J) got raided, their inventory, materials, tools and computers confiscated, and then hauled into court over this kind of thing.

Yes, people have gotten away with selling or trading single handmade units and a few of the remaining factory bits from back in the day, but I suspect that the moment somebody starts manufacturing them, they'll be made an example of.

Fair warning.

Doc.
