Ever hear of a “solvent trap adapter”? If not you have now. Amazing what people come out with nowadays. A solvent trap adapter is a small tool which attaches to the end of a firearm and allows an oil filter or similarly threaded objects to be attached.
The intended purpose of a solvent trap adapter is to attach an oil filter to the end of a barrel to make cleaning the firearm easier. Simply attach the adapter, screw on the oil filter – and any solvents and cleaning materials that go down the barrel will collect in the oil filter rather than on your table, counter, floor, etc.
NOTE: DO NOT screw on an oil filter and shoot a hole through it. Doing so will result in your committing a felony by having an unregistered suppressor.
Below are an assortment of pictures and commentary……

Below: Solvent Trap Adapter mounted to barrel. Notice that there are two brass hex screws which are tightened to secure it. It is advisable to place a barrier between the barrel ans set screw to prevent bluing removal.

Above: Oil filter obtained. The solvent trap adapters can be ordered with different threads as oil filters can also have different threads. It is a good idea to take the adapter to the auto parts store to make sure the purchased oil filter fits correctly.

Infinite Product Solutions sent me the solvent trap adapter for this review – free of charge. Like always that does not sway my opinion nor what I publish. The thing works. They make numerous different models for a variety of different firearms. Whether or not you want to use something like this to reduce the mess when cleaning firearms is up to you. If so – I can recommend those made by Infinite.
