I have a titianium suppressor that is designed of 3 parts with an internal core, a sleeve and end cap. The cap comes off just fine but I cannot get the sleeve to slide off the core. I have soaked it in Kroil for 2 weeks with no success and am wondering if there is a better product to loosen the grip of the carbon or if there is a technique to removing sleeve?

Thoughts or input based on experience?

Is this a .22 suppressor?
Are there caps on only one end?

I'd think there are two caps and you need to remove both and push the baffles out.

Its a center fire suppressor that has 1000's of 22rf rounds through it. Should have been cleaned a long time ago. I thought Kroil would cut it but does not seem to be the case.

The screw press in an interesting concept .... any pics of how I might build one of these?

Here’s the one that came with my rimfire can. Pretty basic.

dip into an ultra sonic cleaner with hot water, dash of dawn dish soap, some Lemi-shine. Should clean it up real well and allow disassembly.

If you've shot 1000s of rounds of .22 through it, there's going to be a considerable amount of lead built up on the interior surfaces effectively cementing everything together. You're going to have to push the baffle stack out, probably with a wooden dowel and a mallet.

What caliber is it for? If it's a rifle caliber can, maybe try shooting (many) rifle rounds through it to try and vaporize and burn off the lead (stopping often to see if the build-up has broken into small enough pieces to be shaken out).

Have you contacted the manufacturer for suggestions or to see if they'll service the suppressor?

    If you don't know what you're doing, or if what you're doing is ineffective, STOP. Contact the manufacturer. You haven't even given us the make and model of the suppressor. These things are expensive, and you wait forever to take possession of one. Don't fuck it up by listening to a bunch of jack wagons on the internet. At least give the maker an opportunity to ghost you first...

    Thanks for the comments and the PMs...It's an old Templar so no mfg support but it's been a great can for me. Based on some qualified feedback, it appears we have the situation moving forwards and I have been able to remove the sleeve and start the cleaning process.
