Default Octane 45HD cleaning quiestion?

I have an Octane 45HD that gets alot of 22lr shot thru it and was wanting to know the best way to clean the booster area where the piston interfaces at? I fits really tight and binds the piston up. Was going to use a small piece of steel wool to remove the fouling, or is this ill advised?

Is that part aluminum or steel? How about soaking it in some carbon cutting solvent and then hit it with a scotchbrite pad?

He's talking about the steel cage insert. I would use a brass brush, you can also use a dremel with brass tips. (Like these two styles in link). Use some spray cleaner to keep the dust down. These brushes work great on 22 blast chambers also.





Silencerco said the insert comes out but it's a factory thing, if you have a major problem send it in.
