SOS Model Suppressors Care and Maintenance. 

FIRST THINGS FIRST, BE SAFE! 

  • HANDLE YOUR SUPPRESSOR ON AND OFF HOST WEAPONS WITH GREAT CARE AND ATTENTION TO SAFETY.
  • WE DO NOT RECOMMEND SUSTAINED FULLY AUTOMATIC FIRE IN OUR SUPPRESSORS
  • FIREARM SUPPRESSORS OTHER THAN 22LR GET VERY HOT, VERY FAST. ALWAYS REMEMBER TO CHECK A SUPPRESSORS TEMPERATURE WITH A QUICK HAND TAP BEFORE GRABBING.  AIR COOL ONLY.
    • A GOOD RULE OF THUMB IS THAT IF YOUR BARREL IS TOO HOT TO TOUCH, YOUR SUPPRESSOR IS PROBABLY TOO HOT TO TOUCH UNPROTECTED. (some good suppressor covers can be picked up here)
  • LISTEN TO YOUR EARS AND THOSE AROUND YOU, IF YOU ARE NOT COMFORTABLE SHOOTING SUPPRESSED ALONE, USE AS MUCH HEARING PROTECTION AS IT TAKES TO MAKE YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE SHOOTING. 
  • SHOOT ONLY CALIBERS AT OR BELOW THOSE SHOWN DESCRIBED ON REBELSILENCERS.COM. CONTACT REBEL SILENCERS WITH ANY QUESTIONS REGARDING CAPABILITY OF YOUR SUPPRESSOR.
  • MAKE SURE THE SOS SYSTEM IS SNUGLY HAND TIGHT BEFORE USE. 
  • TAKE THE TIME TO GET TO KNOW YOUR NEW SUPPRESSOR. MESS AROUND WITH DIFFERENT BAFFLE NUMBER CONFIGURATIONS AND SEE WHICH TONE YOU LIKE BEST! 
  • MOST IMPORTANTLY ENJOY THE WHOLE NEW WORLD OF SHOOTING SUPPRESSED!!!!

All of our SOS model suppressors are tubeless and designed for simplicity and function, That means that they’re easy to take care of!

The key to long suppressor life is maintenance and lubrication. We stress lubrication on pistol, carbine, and 22’s as they run foul and there is a lot of caught debris etc that likes to get in unlubricated threads. For all models, especially the SOS-22, it’s a great idea to run FrogLube paste (4oz tubs can be found here) inside the baffles and threads to make cleanup easy. For those using ultrasonic cleaners we recommend avoiding using the harsh cleaning solutions they come with and trying a small amount of degreaser like Purple Power or even a light amount of Dial hand soap can do the trick if there’s not too much buildup. 

Keeping threads lightly lubricated at all times will help ensure you don’t get a lockup in the threads. Furthermore, if you would like to lock (temporarily) baffle sections together you can do so with Rocksett and then remove the Rocksett by soaking the suppressor in warm water for an hour or so. *Make sure you dry and lubricate the suppressor thoroughly after any soaking.

If baffles become stuck together

First, Attempt to loosen wearing gloves and gripping hard and turning off.

Second, If that doesn’t work we like to use rubber pipe wrenches, they’re cheap at Lowes/Home Depot and of course, they come in handy.
