Cleaned up my Tacsol Axiom after 1000+ rounds. I did pre tx with silicon oil--See Rimfire Suppressor cleaning-the basics for Silicon Oil Tx.
The inner tube did not slide right out--needed some extra pushing with a polymer dowel. A nice coating of burnt powder, lead and grit coated the blast baffle--baffle 2 and 3. Very similar to pictures in Silicon Oil thread. Remainder of the baffles wiped up pretty easy with a paper towel and Slip 2000 cleaner.
Tubes were very clean. Baffles now went into rotary tumbler for 2 hrs. Baffles getting cleaner but a lot of carbon deposit in the cone area.
Carbon Killer solution for 2 hrs-getting better, still some caked on carbon in cone area.
Longer soak in Carbon Killer- 4hrs--dry--tumble.I decided to replace my 2 yr old Carbon Killer which was a dirty brown/orange color. That cleaned up the baffles--dental pick to the collecting area in front of cone--all clean.
Not a lot of effort or elbow grease. Right solvent(Carbon Killer) with stainless steel tumbler.
Probably should have thrown baffles into ultrasonic cleaner after Carbon Killer.
Best solution for non-aluminum suppressor sis a 50/50 mix of white vinegar and peroxide. Use in a well ventilated area. Works great.
doesn't that create some kinda HAZMAT gloop?

Yes. You can add table salt in an attempt to neutralize but not a "safe" or environmentally friendly solution. That being said, it works great. Do a google search on suppressors and the dip.

Yep, and then you're left with figuring out how to dispose of it safely without exposing yourself to lead poisoning.
Success always occurs in private, and failure in full view.

Sooooo, the dip leaves you with a solution that contains lead, and the other cleaning methods result in a fine dust particulate mixed into a solid medium that I would imagine also needs to be handled as a hazardous material?
Or am I missing something here?
