Interesting - this should get a "sticky" to make it easy to find in the future.

Hopefully I'll be picking up my spectre II next week, might have to try that silicone oil trick before I get it dirty

Very cool, thanks for the link. Would the brake fluid also cause damage to the outside finish of a silencer tube?
Yes it would. It's extremely caustic and likes to eat through paint. Be very careful handling it as it can be nasty stuff.

I hate cleaning them so much I tried finding a company that offers to do it but came up empty. I use carb cleaner and brake cleaner a lot

According to SilencerCo, cleaning the Osprey isn't necessary. If desired, you can soak it in WD40...........and blow out with air.

Good thread. I use the 50/50 DIP and it works great, but as you pointed out,as well as it works, it is hazardous as hell. I have to wear thick rubber gloves and I store the resulting Lead Acetate in a jug until I finally decide to find can find a facility to who can dispose of it.

If there is something that works as good or close to as good as the DIP weather it be Silicone Oil, Barricade, Brake Oil, Soaking in Kano Kroil, etc, I would use it Instead...

Have used the dip - just be VERY careful w/the left over....use gloves and dispose of properly as it being serious hazmat

Going to try the DOT 5 on the y specter II and coat my Octane baffles as well - while at it may even do the titanium baffles in my YHM re-build and Thompson machine mono core ;)
