Suppressor + trigger group maintenance



Log in to see fewer ads
Safety stopped working, jammed in the fire position on my trigger group. I had to disassemble the entire unit to figure out how to fix it. Sprayed some WD40 and PB Blaster into the safety mechanism and finally worked it loose after fifteen minutes.

My question is for those who shoot a lot with suppressors, what do you use to lube and clean the trigger assembly?

How frequent do you do it?

Iím fairly new at this and learning some of these lessons the hard way.

Thanks for any advice or experiences shared.

Would help to know what the trigger was in, caliber, what suppressor and how many round you have through it.

Sorry, itís a 10/22 that has a factory trigger group.
Can is a Warlock II.

The trigger group was basically just cleaned with cotton swabs and canned air.
Obviously in retrospect, that is not enough. Receiver and the other moving parts are lubed with oil and light grease film on sliding parts.

Rifle had about three bricks through it when the safety stopped working. The magazine release also got stiffer for releasing the magazines.

Ammo is almost exclusively CCI-SV.

Hope this helps.

Sounds like your oil and grease is attracting the carbon fowling. You might clean it and switch to a dry spray lube.

How often are you cleaning your can?

After every brick. I scrape it the best I can and get 95% of the crud off.

The trigger group has never been lubed. Like I mentioned, I swab it clean and blow it out with canned air.

What do you recommend for a dry lube?

For dry lube, Hornady One Shot or Ezzox work well

Just ordered the Tandemkross 10/22 safety removal tool.

Between that and YouTube trigger group reassembly instructions, I will be able to manage this problem.
