To understand our product, it helps to understand who we are. We are a group of friends & family who love the outdoors, hunting, fishing and shooting. Anytime we hit the woods for game or sport, we bring some sort of a firearm with us and after each shooting session, we clean our firearms. Cleaning solvents and residue inside the barrels can make a real mess inside the house or hunting cabin, and we sought a solution for this.
We discovered Solvent Traps. Attached to the end of a barrel, the solvent trap catches solvents, patches and residue. The trap holds the detritus until the cleaning process is over. Disposal was as simple as unscrewing the trap and emptying it into the trash. However, most of the traps we used lacked in some fundamental way. It was how it screwed on the barrel, the tube for the trap and in some instances, flimsy and cheap materials that leaked.
We took notes on the different traps, took out parts that we did not like or did not work well, got rid of the gimmicks and improved upon the parts that we did like. An engineer was consulted and commissioned with the following criteria: They needed to be High Quality, Inexpensive, and Lightweight. Seven prototypes later, we finally had a kit we knew would meet all of our standards. We then thought if we liked these kits, it would make sense that others would like them as well. SolventTrap.net is the result of both the construction and decision to share our work. What started as an experiment in reception became a full time business. Even with the increased interest in our products we are still looking at the same fundamentals that started this business – except we take suggestions and requests from customers. Our solvent traps are in a constant state of revision and updates, but we stand firmly behind each and every one of our products. The Solvent Trap Kit you buy today will provide years of use.
Some people are nervous about owning a solvent trap kit to clean firearms. Those who feel this way obviously just want to make sure they are abiding by the law, but with a little research into the facts they will find it is 100 percent legal to own a solvent trap kit to clean your firearms. Let me repeat that: It is 100 percent legal to own a solvent trap kit to clean your firearms. The BATF, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, considers a solvent trap a “Firearm Accessory.” The BATF recognizes that a Solvent Trap can be attached to the end of the barrel, with an adapter, as a cleaning accessory and is not considered as anything other than an accessory because a projectile, or bullet, cannot pass through the tube without modification. This means the solvent traps can be purchased and sold without any paperwork or an NFA tax stamp. You do not need a Form 1 to purchase a Solvent Trap Kit. SolventTrap.net offers several thread adapters for a wide variety of both firearms and calibers. We have kits ranging from .22 LR to .308 and many in between. We welcome requests for custom thread adapters and will accommodate a request to the best of our abilities. We at SolventTrap.net have spent hundreds of man hours in research, design and testing of our products. We take real pride in what we do and welcome feedback from our customers.
