Nope. How do those things work?

thought about that and think for it to work effeciently the can needs to be standing up so all the crap will dump out instead of settling at the bottom.


also though about slip 2000 carbon cutter but no one really comments on either

I urge caution when using an ultrasonic cleaner. Most .22 cans and their internals are made of aluminium. Most ultrasonics can dissolve aluminium....read your manual carefully.

Steel cans with steel internals are not a problem.

For my cans I just immerse them in lacquer thinner for about 1-2 hours and blow them out with compressed air.

2L soda bottle with the top cut out.
Fill with Slip 2000 carbon cutter.
Stand suppressor in solution for several hours (I usually throw my Glock barrel in there for 24 hours).
Watch the crap fall to the bottom.
Rinse out with water and quickly lubricate.

Be careful if it is a parkerized finish, it might look dull after the soaking.

Alternatively you could use an agitating foam brush with Slip 2000 Carbon Killer or Simple Green... but watch out when using Simple Green with aluminum.

If you have a big machine like I do U could get a large enough contained that is plastic stand up the can in it and add the slip 2000 stuff and cover it to the top. I have used are machine like this with other chemicals but not for gun cleaning. Are ultrasonic runs on 3 phase power so it is strong. I take this back, we did some gun cleaning once for the boss, it was some rusted up stuff we added some CLP to it in some containers and it worked pretty good.
