I have heard of people cleaning their suppressors with them.
What model(s) would you recommend?

I have the one from harbor freight it's good but you have to babysit it. It likes to shut off every 5 minutes

Since there is a ultrasonic cleaner thread here, I'll ask a question that I've been wondering about. How often do you need to change the cleaning solution, and how do you get rid of the used stuff? It must be hazardous waste, right?

Ultrasonic works well, but has a lot of pitfalls to avoid.

It will damage the finish on your gun under several conditions.

Don't leave the gun in for more than 15 mins or so. Painted and over-cured finishes hold up better than others.

Reusing the solution is okay if you can filter it somehow. The particulate that will accumulate in the solution from dirty guns will become part of the scrub and will scratch almost all finishes. It's can become like a waterbourne sand blaster if you reuse dirty solution too much. Find eco-friendly solution or make your own, that way it cheap and easy to dispose of.

Also take great care to avoid finished parts touching while the ultrasonic is working. It'll be like an electro-pencil got in there otherwise.

Great article about this in SADJ.
