That’s a legit cleaning tool no?

Prepares supply sells them as such anyhow

Not so sure about that. Solvent traps typically only have a hole in one end, not both.

But I don’t use them so I’m more concerned about the botched English than anything else. No way would I buy anything from that seller.

I’m on the company’s mailing list for these,

Back when it was freeze plugs and mag lights

Cute to look at but no plans to order any cleaning kits

Okay, don’t laugh at me because I’m genuinely not sure. But is this actually a silencer in a few pieces?

Well hmm, not really. It all depends on how much tolerance you have for walking on the wild side of the law.

In case you are serious and really want my opinion: Run! Run far away as fast as you can! Don’t look back lest a “solvent trap” unravel everything you’ve ever worked for in life! :facepalm:

Okay, so I still don’t get it. What is it? I’ve never heard of a solvent trap. Why do you think it’s an ATF fishing expedition?

Its a suppressor

Same way a prostitute may refer to herself as a love broker,

Some (not defining who “some” are) would argue a solvent trap is a means of shirking the NFA by selling a near complete suppressor under the guise it is a tool used to capture solvent when one cleans their rifle barrel.

The first time I saw a “solvent trap” was at a gun show years ago. I immediately recognized it for what it was and thought, “good luck to ya buddy” about the guy sluffing them to ignorant souls looking to sidestep the law.

And now, let the stone throwing commence…

I asked if it was a silencer, I guess I chose the wrong word. Y’all had me doubting myself.

You did. There’s no such thing as a “silencer”, only suppressors. Nothing can make the firing of a projectile from a firearm completely silent -no matter how much Hollywood and Washington would lead us to believe. :stuck_out_tongue:

Well that I knew - just a slip on the language. I know that’s a thing for some people. I won’t let it happen again. :woman_shrugging::woman_facepalming:t3:

Says who, you? The original patent by Maxim calls it a silencer, why interject a fallacy.

Stay away from “solvent traps” Stare decisis is not on their side, even if you win the case your life would never be the same;

Well now, I stand corrected. Kudos to you and Maxim for defying the laws of physics in making a gunshot completely and utterly silent. :roll_eyes:

In all seriousness, the term “silencer” is being used against us by the left leaning media, Hollywood, and the anti-gun powers that be in DC. Call it whatever you want. I couldn’t care less. But don’t aid and abet the enemy at everyone else’s expense.

I thought it was originally called a muffler? Silencer sounds too aggressive, muffler has a better ring to it.
