    You sure about that?
    The ones I've seen, yes. There's a new one that's actually plastic, and it definitely has some weird stuff going on inside, but nothing revolutionary as far as I can tell.

    It’d be hard to find someone more experienced on that topic than Paco.

    Granted I'm an amateur suppressor builder, but my job pretty much revolves 100% around drafting for 3D printing applications, so I feel like I'm qualified to comment on that. I think it's pretty presumptuous of you to just automatically assume I don't know what I'm talking about and then insinuate that I'm running someone off.

    Thank you for sharing Josh. Don’t let the dumb get you down, keep hanging around and providing industry insight. Too bad you can’t post all your memes on here like you do in IG.

    For cleaning sealed rifle silencers it'll depend on the exact model and whatever the manufacturer tells you to do, assuming they can be brought to understand that they do need cleaning so they'll divulge a recommendation to you. Some common methods are dunking them with something like CLR, aircraft precision simple green (aluminum safe), Boretech C4, etc and you'll have to check what materials each one is safe for. Like you wouldn't want to use CLR on stainless steel but you would on titanium. The most common method is ultrasonic cleaning though. And again, depending on the method some chemicals or methods may strip off the silencers finish depending on what it's coated with. Always follow a manufacturers cleaning indstructions.

    I have a shitload of cans that I shoot weekly. I've never cleaned a can. Once or twice I scrapped carbon out of can.

    The real negative is they gain weight which sux. I sent my T beast in and they cleaned it for a week plus to get it to original weight. That should give perspective on what it takes to really get a rifle can clean. YMMV
