All the truth about solvent traps

Oct 19,2022 | Armorytexas

Does the solvent trap you buy fit?

There are many types of solvent traps on the market, and many vendors write on their pages that they fit 22lr, 5.56mm, 9mm, and so on. Perhaps you've experienced and bought one that doesn't apply to your device.

Buying the most suitable solvent traps is important for every firearms enthusiast. This article will analyze what kind of solvent trap is the best choice for you from several angles.

Before you buy the solvent trap, know what you are buying for

  1. clean your equipment. Many devices have been used for too long. The barrel will have a lot of residual powder condensation in it, resulting in a loss of accuracy.
  2. Use as a Suppressor. It is important to note that the current policy states that you must apply for Form 1 before changing or modifying your solvent trap, depending on your state.

 

The most appropriate solvent traps include those.

  1. Thread. each device has its thread. If the thread does not fit, it will not work or will not be connected. If you force the threads on, it will cause damage to the solvent trap. Therefore, finding your own thread and buying the right one is important. The most popular threads on the market are 1/2x28, 5/8x24, 9/16x24, .578x28 thread and so on. There is also M16x1LH M18x1 1/2x36 thread, but the market usage is not high. The above thread usage is only for the U.S. domestic market research and the usage rate. Please refer to our thread guide for specific equipment models. 
  2. DB. It is a more common problem. After all, when the solvent trap is used as a suppressor, most people have only one purpose: reducing the sound decibel. The following factors affect this result
  3. Length. The longer the length, the better the effect. But too long a length can affect the balance of the device, which affects the accuracy of the device. The ideal length is 12 inches.
  4. Type of Solvent Trap Cups. Different types of cups will also affect the sound decibel size. We'll discuss this in more detail in a separate blog about the impact of different types of cups on decibel reduction and different types of bullets.
  5. Materials. There are many materials of solvent traps on the market. There are three types of solvent traps on the market, aluminum, stainless steel and titanium. To facilitate comparison, we have only made a table reference.

It is easy to see from the above table. Each material has its advantages and disadvantages in different areas. Among our customers, we often have friends ask which solvent trap is the best or ask us to recommend the best solvent trap directly to them. Still, for this question, it depends entirely on how you define "better", and this definition will vary from shooter to shooter. If lighter is better, then yes. If more expensive is better, then yes. If heat resistance is better, then yes. But each material has its strengths and weaknesses, just as there are no perfect lovers in the world.

 

It all depends on your specific needs and conditions of use and where you place your priorities. To identify which needs are most critical for the solvent trap and which ones are "nice to have", contact armory Texas.
