Terry's Tips:  The myth behind Silencers and Maintenance

by Terry Harrison

One hears of bullets emerging from the sides of silencers, and dirty silencers being blamed for this. There are stories of centre-fire silencers blocked with so much carbon that the silencer has become ineffective. This brings to mind a Sig Sauer test that I read a while ago where they fired 140 000 rounds through one of their suppressors. When the silencer was cut open, there was very little carbon build-up inside. This test is now gospel that one does not need to clean a centre-fire silencer, as it is basically self-cleaning.
