That's what I did and it worked great. I didn't go 24 hours with the CLR but mine wasn't that heavy. Only place I deviated was using "Extreme" Simple Green (Doesn't smell like sasafass. Personal preference.) and I didn't use compressed air. I just shook the shit out of it and let it dry standing up (blast baffle side down cause gravity and the shape of the baffles) on a microfiber towel for a day. Body weighs 14.2 ounces now and I have no idea what it weighed new but there is nary a speck of carbon in it!So many options and opinions ... many that directly conflict. Hoping to get an authoritative answer from someone that owns my specific suppressor ... vs. speculation or opinion about what "might" or "should" happen. (So please humor me.)
I have a SilencerCo Chimera-300. It's several ounces heavier that when I bought it, and I've used it a lot. My plan is to:
Is there anything about this plan that's "wrong", or dangerous? I'm specifically concerned about the exterior finish, as I don't want a can that looks like it's endured the "heartbreak of psoriasis".
- Remove mount and end-cap
- Soak the can in CLR solution for 24 hours
- Rinse with faucet water
- Place in my ultrasonic cleaner (plastic basket) filled with Simple Green solution for 10 minutes
- Flush with hose water under pressure
- Blow dry with compressed air and let stand to dry for 24 hours
Will I be OK with "this" plan on "this" suppressor?
P.S. An ultrasonic will take off cerakote.
