I have a Parker Hale moderator on my .22lr rifle.
I'm satisfied with the performance, but it is a real pain to clean the baffles. I've tried soaking them in thinners and boiling them in water as I saw recommended somewhere, but no success and I end up scraping the muck off.
Has anyone any suggestions please ?

a wire brush and a blundish blade and scrap it off the baffles i use an old 12 gage stiff brass chamber brush on a drill for mine. then i just give it a spray of barrel cleaner and carry on until i think it needs doing again say every tho rounds

Soak in KG carbon cleaner and then drop in an ultrasonic bath

or just leave it alone.
Parker Hales have been left alone for decades without issue
