    The baffle stack.

    Put clean/spotless baffle stack parts in an oven to get them warm/hot to the touch. About 150 or so.

    Soak them in DOT 5 brake fluid.

    All that crud and carbon will just about wipe off the next time you go to clean it.

    I use silver anti-seize on the threads. The junk that comes in a big chapstick dispenser.

    Do you store the used fluid for repeat use or do you dispose of it?

    I should take a photo.
    I took the dedicated suppressor (integral barrel) off my subgun last night for cleaning. I had treated it with silver anti-seize, and then proceeded to put several thousand rounds through it. The cap and barrel unthreaded readily. The baffle stack came out easily, falling out with a few (gentle) taps on a rag on my bench. The carbon is like concrete on the baffles. The buildup isn't thick, it's just hard. Some of it chipped off without much effort, but cleaning the rest of it appears to be quite the task.
    Being lazy, I made a phone call and secured the use of an ultrasonic cleaner today.
    Never complain; never explain.

    Thanks for the info Hoser.

    I, and I am sure others, appreciate it.
