At the Range: Cleaning Suppressors

At the Range: Cleaning Suppressors

cleaning_suppressorsWith the majority of states allowing civilian ownership of suppressors and quite a few allowing hunters to use suppressors while afield, now is one of the best times ever to own a suppressor. Efforts by gun and suppressor rights groups to change legislation in recent years has continually expanded the number of states where suppressor ownership is legal, and more and more states are permitting the use of cans for hunting purposes.

This is a great development that is introducing the benefits of suppressor ownership to a whole new group of shooters. However, with the ownership of a new suppressor also comes the need to understand how to properly maintain and care for those suppressors.

In this segment of Guns & Ammo TV airing on the Sportsman Channel, Patrick Sweeney and SIG Sauer's Ethan Lessard discuss some tips for properly cleaning suppressors.
