I have recently bought a T8 Moderator for my .270 and have to say that I am extremely pleased with it - It has reduced the report to what sounds more like an unmoderated .22WMR (From the firing position), it has reduced the recoil of the rifle by quite a lot making the rifle even more of a pleasure to use, and it has helped tighten my grouping up. All in all very well worth the money I paid for it!
My question is as follows:- I bought this moderator "pre-owned". It was in very good condition when I bought it and I want to keep it that way. I have read some "reports" which say you should not clean a centrefire moderator and some which say otherwise and give "opinions as to how a moderator should be cleaned". What are your thoughts please?
I ought to add that the moderator is removed from the rifle and stored seperately when not in use after being given a good wipe down with a clean dry cloth followed by a very light wipe over with gun oil. Is there anything else which I could be doint to help to prolong the life of this moderator or to help to keep it in good working order please?
