I recently got my first can, a Blackhawk carnivore 300wm. I plan to run it on a 300 blackout and a 260 Remington. Again this is my first suppressor so bare with me. Do I need to do anything maintenance wise to it? I think it’s a sealed model, so I don’t know how I can clean out the internal baffles when they get really clogged/dirty.
Thanks for the help

If it's sealed and your just gonna use it on centerfire rifle, just leave it be and shoot the piss out of it.

SAS Arbitor 8 years old several 1000 rounds per year, multiple calibers. Once a year I plug up the exit hole, stand upright, fill with white vinegar, let set over night and pour out in the morning. Remove all fouling.

Ive put 2400 rounds through my TBAC Ultra 7 and have added 2 oz to it since I started using it. Tried using an Ultrasonic Cleaner for a few hours, and only got reduced the weight by 0.3 oz after drying. I will try the white vinegar shortly.
I wonder if the amount of residue build up eventually ceases due to the high pressures and the excess residue is pushed out, or if it will continue to build up?
Will the build up have an affect on sound suppression, Im sure it does as it is decreasing he volume of the can, but to what extent?

I've seen ultra 7s over a pound. It doesn't stop.
