Q: How often should I clean my Oculus22?

The inside of the suppressor tube can be cleaned using normal gun solvent and cleaning techniques. We recommend using a 12 gauge bore brush, and a brass wire brush to remove any carbon as necessary.

Q: Does the Fixed Mount need to be used with the Fixed Barrel Spacer?

A: No, the Fixed Mount is a stand alone mount. The Fixed Barrel Spacer is used with a piston and replaces the spring that comes with the Obsidian9. The Fixed Mount and a Fixed Barrel Spacer are 2 different methods to attach your Obsidian9 to a fixed barrel firearm (carbine, PCC etc.). For more clarification check out our Pistol Mounting Options Guide!

Q: How often should I clean my Obsidian?

A: We recommend cleaning the baffles every 1,000 rounds. The piston and spring should be cleaned after each range trip. Make sure to lubricate the outside of the piston with white lithium grease before each range trip for the suppressor and handgun to cycle properly.

Q: Is there a muzzle device to make my 14.5″ barrel 16″?

A: Yes, we have 2 options. Our 3 Port Brake in 1/2×28 and R3 Flash Mitigation System – 7.62 in 1/2×28 will bring a 14.5″ barrel to 16″. 

Q: Is my rifle suppressor rated for 9mm or 45ACP?

A: No, our rifle suppressors are designed for .30 caliber projectiles and smaller. The aperture is not large enough for pistol calibers.

Q: How often should I clean my rifle suppressor?

A: Due to the construction and use of exotic materials, our rifle suppressors require limited service/maintenance. We recommend wiping down the threads of your suppressor after each range trip and adding a small amount of oil to the ADAPT Module and front cap threads.

Q: What to do if I have a warranty issue?

A: All of our products our covered by our Unconditional Lifetime Warranty. If you have any issues, just fill out this Service Request and we’ll take care of you. We’ll work with you to figure out what caused the issue and make sure it’s fixed.

Q: Why are there so many mounts and how do I know which ones to get?

A: Not all firearms have the same thread pitch or operate the same way. We make different mounts in order for your suppressor to be compatible with as many firearms as possible.

Our Rifle Suppressors all use our Dual Taper Locking System and are cross compatible. Our rifle suppressor muzzle devices can be found here. There are multiple options to accommodate personal preference, but they’re all compatible with our Dual Taper Locking System.

In order to allow pistol suppressors to operate on carbines and handguns there are various attachment methods. Our Pistol Suppressor Attachments Guide goes over each attachment and which ones you’ll need for your firearms.

Q: Can I swap out the piston/muzzle device included with my suppressor?

A: We don’t swap out included accessories as they are prepackaged then shipped to our distributors, who then ship them to your dealer.

Q: Can I purchase an additional ADAPT Module?

A: We don’t sell ADAPT Modules separately as they are regulated suppressor parts and would illegally change the length of your suppressor (suppressors can be shortened but not lengthened).

The entire suppressor is cleanable by hand. Take it apart and use a nylon brush and CLP to lightly scrub. Use a brass pick for the hard-to-get areas. Do not use an ultrasonic.
Use an ultrasonic on the baffles only. The tube of the Oculus22™ can be cleaned with a nylon brush and CLP.
Clean any visible buildup with a brass pick. The baffles aren’t removable, so wrap the tube in a rubber mesh and put it in an ultrasonic cleaner with 50% purple power and 50% warm water. Lubricate the locking collar with white lithium grease or gun oils.
Clean any visible build up with a brass pick and lubricate with gun oils. Use brush lightly if needed. Do not use an ultrasonic.
