Brake Fluid--Thumb Up; Wish.Com--Yikes!

Well, I'm giving a guarded thumbs-up, for DOT5
brake fluid, for making .2LR residue easier to remove
from aluminum baffles.

After 150 rounds, the last five K baffles wiped clean
with a rag. Residue was sort of a wet, gritty, lumpy
paste.

The first two baffles were dry. I used a generic green
scratch pad, and residue gave way with little pressure.

Anodizing on tube/end caps, and mill-finish baffles,
seemed unaffected by the brake fluid.

On the subject of "solvent traps", somebody's taken it
to a new and different height. A friend asked if I'd seen
solvent traps on Wish.com, and I told him no, and went
into the potential world-of-hurt they could bring.

After we talked a while, I realized he was talking about
monocore guts, and K-baffles...wtf?

Without further ado, the newest evolution of "solvent
traps" (with no endorsement of legality or recommendation
to purchase or possess--where's the Fuking Lawyer?@?):

https://www.wish.com/search/suppress...c1103158394c73

https://www.wish.com/search/suppress...476f5204068c14

There's at least one other monocore style, but you get the idea. The K
baffles aren't drilled thru, but the monocore's don't show any diy detail,
at least to my eye.

DOT 5 is Silicone based, and doesn't jack up paint - yup, nice hack. I wonder if coating everything in Silicone grease would have the same effect (and maybe work as a "wet" medium, to boot?)

I wouldn't worry about posting Solvent Traps - perfectly legal if you Form 1 it. It's not like "they" are going to ban the plumbing section of Home Depot too... Suppressor prices are over-inflated BS anyway, IMO.

Dot 5 is hard to find, and was for older cars with some weird braking calipers, etc etc , but DOt 5.1 is not silicone based and is around.. Not common, but around.

DOT 5 is the silicone version, and the one that is recommended for keeping .22 fouling 'wipeable'. Walmart carries it, but it's
cheaper at Advance Auto.

I've wondered about that, too. Got some heavy-bodied
silicone grease, might as well try it when I reassemble.

DOT 3 & 4, the originals, damaged paint and were hygroscopic, drawing in moisture and corroding brake systems. Not a problem if you did the bare minimum maintenance - but Joe and Jane average... DOT 5 was developed to not absorb water, being silicone based, but it has a slightly spongy feel at the lever/pedal when hot. 5.1 is just a more advanced version of 3 & 4, and can be added to it - a DOT 5 system, technically, should never have had 3/4/5.1 in it - although some flush with alcohol and replace any part that touched glycol and have no problems. My 2016 GMC specifies DOT3/4, so it just depends on what the mfg decides they're going to use in their system.

Anyway... back to suppressors

My Googlefu is coming up weak. Id like to start the steps to get a can. Im primarily interested in what I think is called a reflex style (over the barrel) so I can reduce the length as this would be primarily for hunting. I cant seem to find a US manufacturer for this style though but they seem to be really popular in NZ.

So does anyone know of a US manufacturer? If not can you import from overseas?

Here is an example of what Im interested in.

Allen Engineering is what I use for my reflex cans. They are very durable, reasonably priced, and were used on the US Mk12 weapon system. https://www.smallarmsales.com/Allen-Engineering-AEM5-Suppressor-p/aem5.htm

Griffin Armament has the RSTA and SPR models that use the reflex design. https://grabagun.com/griffin-armament-rsta-30cal-spprssr-otb-blk.html

I just bought a Hybrid 46 multi-caliber. Hopefully not another 19 month wait.

The nice lady in WV said to call her back if mine doesn't arrive by the 10 month mark. Land of the Free...

Yankee Hill is coming out with a "Do Everything" R9 in the summer. Their pricing and numbers are always awesome - only reason I didn't get a Resonator was impatience (they were B.O'd at the time).

Good morning. At what point did you call? I am hesitant to call about mine, but rather kick back and see what happens. 19 mos sucks for sure.

Regardless, cant wait to read your review of your new can in Sep 21. :)

Ha! More like by April 1 bud, LOL!

Call whenever you want, but I'd wait at least 6 months or you'll probably feel the eye-rolls coming from the other end - I called at 8 months.

My parolee arrived home yesterday, at the 9 month and 5 day mark.

Finally got my hearing protection device out of jail and I’m curious what everyone is running for suppressed MK18,5.56mm.

I picked up my latest one about 2 weeks ago, just under 3 months from when the Form 4 went in.

Running? You asking about ammo? If so, doesn't matter signature wise, they're all Supersonic. You'll get a billion answers, but I choose Federal Fusion MSR, which is a Bonded (Barrier Blind) Soft Point, that has been shown to expand in Gel down to 1700fps - which is about ~300 yards for the 10.x" barrels.

Take a look at the page below - it also depends on what range you think is important, closer gives you more choices.

For practice, I get the cheapest Brass cased stuff available, which is usually 55gr.
