I had try frog lube for 2 year's. It will work, But not great, I had try over 1400 round of mix ammo, and I dip it. Will comes off, but still need little work, Last week I have total of over 2,200 round on my Spectre II , I have to dip it twice and some elbow grease to clean it off. and also I have to pound the baffle with rod.

I will give a DOT 5 a test. Can it hold up 3,000 round

Just remember it is DOT 5 fluid, NOT DOT 5.1; they're two wildly different chemical compounds & should never be mixed [they'll turn into toxic spooge if they are.]

Wish I had one of those mufflers to play with, but they're illegal here behind the Granola Curtain...

isn't fireclean vegetable oil? I seem to recall somebody putting some through a mass spectrometer to confirm. I'm not saying don't use it, but maybe not overpay for something.

I found that coating can internals with Eezox makes cleaning very easy.

FYI clean can is louder than dirty can, the first 300 round is louder, after that it sounds better.

Go to your local auto parts store and get some Permatex high temp anti-seize. Then go to Lowes or Home Depot and get a quart of mineral spirits. Disassemble a clean suppressor and with an old toothbrush coat the interior of the tube with the anti-seize. Don't forget the threads. Re-assemble everything and use your can as you normally do. When you feel it's time to clean it, remove the end caps and drop everything into a container of mineral spirits. I use an old glass pickle jar so I can view everything. Let everything soak for a couple days. Most if not all the crud that was deposited on the tube's interior should just fall off as the layer of anti-seize will have been dissolved away by the mineral spirits. Your can's interior components should just drop out. I have never used anti-seize on any other component. Clean your can's other components as you normally do. Re-coat the interior and re-assemble. Even though the mineral spirits will be dark gray with dissolved crud, it can be used over and over again. Plus, it will evaporate completely and leave no residue. This isn't a perfect solution, but it works well enough for me as my biggest problem was removing hardened crud from the cans interior.

I have the mineral spirits already, will pick up some of that Permatex and give it a go.

I like my Spectre II being clean and golden inside. So anything that makes maintenance easier is definitely worth a couple bucks to try!

I have used the weapons grease TW25B painted onto the baffles with a small paintbrush -though it helps, it isn't the greatest, either.

Thanks Dan.
