They are mop caps, the bag that cleaning mops and pull-throughs are kept in.

Muzzle covers have a strap, not a drawstring.

Default Muzzle covers

Hi all,

Speaking of muzzle covers, can anyone help me identify this one please?

I'm assuming it is a muzzle cover. It is dated 1944 inside the cover. The diameter at the end is about 7", or around 180mm.

I would say they look like 5.5" covers, but I would have to measure the muzzle to be sure.

Default Muzzle cover

Hi Mel,

Thanks for that. I certainly don't have a 5.5" gun so it is of no use to me. I'll put it in the for sale section and see if it is of use to anyone.

Default Muzzle cover

Hi Mel,

It looks like I've answered my own question. I pulled the cover inside out and got under some good light and it says:

COVER MUZZLE
3.7
? 1944 ?

It seems big for a 3.7" barrel but I guess if it had the big flared muzzle brake it would be right.

I should have looked harder in the first place!

Thanks for your help.

This is what you need if anyone wants to make any. I need one for the Daimler but I don't own the original to copy.
