I was planning to take off the flash suppressor which I don't need and just put on a thread protector. Has anyone done this and could you tell me where you got it and if fits well. I understand the threads are 5/8 X 24 but I don't the length of the threads. I think most thread protector's are around 6 tenths of and inch and the scout looks a little longer. Thanks for any info.

I'd give one of these a try:

The price is good. If they're too short you might try keeping the crush washer on or using a split locking with the "split" in the washer at 6 o'clock position.

Go to Shopruger and look at the left where it says "departments". Then punch in "rifle accessories". You will see 7 pictures. Punch in the one of the barrel band that says "accessories". You will find it there.
