    cleaning a t8 moderator help


    afetr a sever weather stalking weekend in scotland,rain snow and every thing in-between, i got home to clean the rifle and silly me cleaned the inside of the moderator.
    i now have a small patch stuch somewhere inside the moderator which i am trying desperetly to retrieve.it's somewhere between the baffles.
    am i down a certain river without a paddle and just keep on trying.

    I don't know the design of the T8 baffles, and this might be a silly answer, but have you tried a vacuum cleaner, covering one end of the moderator if necessary?

    hi willie gun,
    i did tink of using an industrial vacum that i can get my hands on, which might be better at cleaning the whole thing anyway.

    Have you access to a hi capacity air tank. Pressure blow it. There will be no problem pressure wise and it will take out anything that is loose. If the mod is old and rusty inside could damage the baffles but if soo replacement should be on the cards anyway,

    An industrial cleaner is a good idea, but I was thinking more of the nozzle attachment on a VAX, Dyson or similar. You could even do some jerry-rigging and create a nozzle that would match the moderator opening (using sufficient gaffer tape ). I'd hope that, with sufficient suction, it would shift the patch. I'm sure there's someone else on the site who has more direct experience with the T8 and can advise.

    Good luck!

    I’ve got this horrible picture in my mind of willie gunn in A&E with a dyson stuck to a part of his body

    Take it down your local filling station and blow it out with an airline.

    Sounds a sensible idea, when its loose if you cant hook it out use the hoover.
