Frequently Asked Questions

Are Solvent Traps Legal?

Solvent traps themselves are legal in most jurisdictions, as they are primarily designed for catching solvent and debris during firearm cleaning. However, the use of solvent traps for any other purpose, such as creating an improvised silencer or suppressor, is illegal under federal law in the United States and in many other countries.

Solvent traps can be converted into silencers or suppressors by drilling holes in the end caps or other components and adding baffles or other materials. Such modifications can result in a device that is considered a silencer or suppressor under federal law, even if it was originally marketed and sold as a solvent trap.

It is important to note that the manufacturing, possession, or use of a silencer or suppressor without proper registration and licensing is a felony offense under federal law in the United States, as well as in many other countries. Additionally, the use of any firearm accessory or modification in a manner that violates local laws or regulations can result in legal consequences.

We do not support or condone the use our products in an such manner. Don’t risk your future, go buy a legal silencer if that is your intent.

How do I use a Solvent Trap?

Using a solvent trap is a straightforward process. Here are the basic steps to follow:

  1. Clear the firearm: Before beginning the cleaning process, make sure the firearm is unloaded and cleared of any ammunition.

  2. Attach the solvent trap: Attach the solvent trap to the end of the firearm barrel using a solvent trap adapter, screwing it on securely.

  3. Apply cleaning solvent: Apply the cleaning solvent to the firearm according to the manufacturer’s instructions. The solvent will flow through the barrel and into the solvent trap.

  4. Allow time for the solvent to work: Allow the solvent to sit for a few minutes, which will help to dissolve any residue or debris.

  5. Remove the solvent trap: Once the solvent has had time to work, remove the solvent trap from the firearm.

  6. Clean the solvent trap: Clean the solvent trap according to the manufacturer’s instructions, making sure to dispose of any collected debris or solvent properly.

  7. Dry and oil the firearm: Dry the firearm using a clean cloth or towel, and apply oil or lubricant to the appropriate parts.

It is important to follow all safety procedures when handling firearms, including wearing appropriate protective gear and avoiding exposure to harmful chemicals.
