A clean gun is a working gun. If you clean your gun regularly like so many members of the police and armed forces do, you know exactly how messy it can get. The mess isn’t necessarily the problem—although it often does produce a noxious odor which has been known to upset more than a handful of wives—it’s the potentially harmful chemicals of a barrel cleaning solvent which could make contact with your skin or the environment.
Solvent traps capture barrel cleaning solvent before it has the opportunity to harm the user or the environment. Additionally, it saves responsible gun owners money. The solvent is filtered and captured by the trap so it can be reused. This reduces the environmental impact of the chemical solvent disposal necessary after cleaning a gun.
A solvent trap is very simple to use: the operator simply attaches it to the muzzle end of the gun’s barrel and pours solvent down the gun barrel as they normally would. Then the solvent trap does its work of catching all the solvent. Eliminating the hassles, smell and mess of spilled solvent. Filtering the solvent and reusing it offers cost savings and is good for our environment.
