Stephen and I were talking the other day about the high cost of ammo and how we like to shoot 22 rifles to keep our skills honed. One of the most popular rifles is the little Ruger 10-22 but one of the main drawbacks is cleaning the rifle.
We have all had the problem, you come home from the range and start cleaning your rifle on the kitchen table, you spray oil down the barrel and before you know it it drips all over your wife's clean floor, well that problem is solved.
A few entrepreneurs make an adapter which allows an oil filter to be screwed on the end of the barrel and trap all those solvents thus keeping you out of the doghouse with your wife.
I personally think this is a brilliant solution to the problem especially considering how the EPA wants to keep oil and chemical solvents out of landfills, in fact I think the government should require one of these adapters be supplied with all guns sold in the interest of keeping the environment clean.
Now I know some of you devious minds are thinking this could be used as a suppressor but I should caution that would not be considered cool by our good friends at the ATF.
It goes without saying you should make sure the gun is unloaded before cleaning because in the case of accidental discharge the round would punch a hole in the end of the filter thus rendering it useless to retain oil or solvents.
Having said all that you should check it out, you can do a Google or Ebay search for "solvent trap, Ruger 10-22" or something similar and see there are quite a few available for less than $40. Not a bad price for marital harmony.
