    The last time I saw a muzzle cover for an M14icon it was on board the USS Alamo in 78 or so. I don't think they made it out into the collectors world.

    Look at that picture close fellas. I don't think that is a muzzle cover. I think the photo was doctored. The slots can be seen quite clearly and there is too sharp of a line from barrel to "alleged cover" for the graininess of the rest of the picture.

    doctored ?
    to what end?
    another view -

    do not think the boys at Life had time to doctor images - looks like a tape to me

    Protector, muzzle 7790231

    Bill H., the plastic protector is a clear plastic and you can see the slots of the suppressor when installed on the rifle. The photo gives the impression that the protector is white
