Cleaning your Slingshot, Slingshot Micro and Slingshot Ti .22
Proper cleaning of your silencer is imperative for a long-life span and to maintain the ability to disassemble the silencer for cleaning or servicing. Cleaning should be performed after every shooting session. DO NOT exceed 300 rounds per shooting session before cleaning. It is important to make sure that both your silencer threads and barrel threads are clean before attaching your silencer to the barrel.
It is recommended that you disassemble the silencer once you are done shooting, even if you don’t have the time for cleaning. This will keep the tube and core from seizing together during the expansion/contraction from the suppressor cooling off from use. Make sure that your firearm is unloaded and pointed in a safe direction. Use a heat resistant glove if needed. Please contact us if you have any questions.
If you feel that there is a lot of build up, we recommend soaking your silencer for a few hours in gun solvent before cleaning by hand. You may also use an ultrasonic cleaner. If you choose to use an ultrasonic cleaner, we suggest suspending the silencer so that it does not touch the bottom or sides of the container.
Remove the core from the tube body.
Hold the silencer upright and unscrew the retaining nut from the back of the silencer.
Grasp the tube body firmly. Using your thumb or the palm of your hand, push the core threads up into the tube about ¼” until the threads are flush with the tube body. You can now pull the core out from the front of the silencer.
Clean the inside of tube body.
Hold the tube body vertically over a disposable cloth. Slide the core in and out of the tube body while using a twisting motion. This will loosen lead and powder build up and allow the debris to fall onto the ground or disposable cloth.
Wipe clean the inside of the tube body with a clean cloth and gun cleaner.
Clean the silencer core.
Wipe clean the inside and outside of the core with a clean cloth and gun cleaner. You can use a bristled brush if needed.
For more thorough cleaning, the core may be submerged in gun solvent overnight to break down the build-up.
*DO NOT use ammonia based cleaners on the retaining nut.
