    Are the larger diameter suppressors that are 1.75” diameter, like the Q suppressors or Dead Air Nomad, visible in low powered Thermal scopes like the Pulsar Trail XP50 (1.6x zoom)?

    If so, how much of an issue is it and would you recommend buying a smaller diameter (~1.5”) suppressor?

    I would say they are. Not really noticable until you start shooting. Not enough to obstructe tg field of view

    Yes they are, but as stated above, it's not a big issue for the first shot. My setup is a Ruger American Predator with a Thermion XP38 in medium Warne Maxima rings on the stock rail and a DA Nomad-30. The cold can is visible in the thermal but until I've fired 2 or 3 shots it does not effect the image. After that and the heat begins to wash the image out.

    I have tried silencer wraps and they do not make an appreciable difference for me.

    Humm, guess I'll not bother with buying one of those wraps.
