    I pulled the Gemtech 9mm can apart last night for it's first cleaning in about 1000 rounds...fuck. Had to (gently..kinda) pound the baffles out with a deepwell socket with small extension attached to it. I've never had baffles so stuck. It was pretty dirty, but damn.

    I used a brass wire wheel on the dremel to remove carbon from the edges of the baffles to aid in re-assembly...mostly worked.

    Any tips or tricks? Just don't clean them? lol

    Tumble the baffled? Not sure. What kind of ammo were you shooting? What kind of fouling did you see?

    Kroil prior to disassembly afterwards, Ballistol before reassembly & to wet the can before shooting.

    Spray Pam on the baffles and inside the tube before reassembly

    I take off the end caps and pour some Hoppes in for a soak.

    I've also been coating the inside of the tube and baffles with bore butter (Thompson Center product). I think any semi solid lube would work.

    I've shot mostly CCI Lawman 147's and a handful of Freedom Munitions 147's.

    Those are both jacketed bullets. I can't run the flat nose stuff with 100% consistency on the Mac. I have probably shot about 500 to 700 rds full auto thru my Gemtech. Guess I better disassemble and see how bad it is.
