I've always wondered.

So it's simply a reservoir which fills with gases and expels them towards the muzzle, pushing all remaining gases/particles out of the bore, and it is not powered by anything. Is that right?

Good info, always wandered what that was on the barrel.

I always thought that thingy was a sleeve that you could use to pick the barrel up with and not burn your hand.

I wish I had a Bore Evacuator at the party I went to last night.

Thermal Sleeves and Bore Evacuators are of course entirely different things.

Just to confuse matters, some people call bore evacuators fume extractors. Other tanks don't use them at all, and rely on compressed air.

I was playing stupid, something I do quite convincingly I might add.

It's like an M-4 BBL in reverse, you can mount a m203 under it for indirect fire.

Don't feel bad. I help give tours at the Littlefield's tank musem on occasion, and it's almost invariably a question that is asked there as well.
