Good idea, bad idea?

I often use a Boresnake before and after shooting my .22's.

Would it cause any trouble, or be of any benefit to do this with the suppressor before packing up at the range?

Not much surface area for a bore snake to really do much of anything in a can. I dont see how it could hurt but I also dont see how it would help either.

Are you using a serviceable 22 suppressor?

I can't see a boresnake doing much since the deposits aren't in the middle.



Not minority enough!

Move the gunk out of the barrel and into the suppressor?

I think not. Most of the carbon or lead is going to be in the nooks and crannies of the baffle stack. In the corners where the cone meets the wall/skirt.

Do you want lint or other debris from the ’snake accumulating in your suppressor?

Just use an oversized brush, like a .243 brush, or even larger if it doesn't contact.

What model suppressor is it?

I know a guy who managed to get a cotton cleaning patch stuck in a can. It ruined his day. Word to the wise.

I wouldn't stick anything in there that I may not be able to get out; bore snakes can break.

If it can't be disassembled, I'd do either some solvent soaks or ultrasonic dunks.

Rimfire? Take it apart and run it through an ultrasonic bath OR tumble it with some SS pins. You can also probably have it serviced by the manufacturer unless they suck.

Centerfire rifle? Don't worry, be happy mon...

You think so, huh? It didn't work out that way for the guy. That silencer had to go back to the manufacturer to get the patch out.

So, no cleaning necessary at all for an Omega suppressor?
