Default Cadiz Gun Works Solvent Trap

This is to clear up some confusion some people have had regarding the Cadiz Gun Works Solvent Trap being offered in the Classifieds Zone.

I called Cadiz, and talked to Vicki, the manager of the shop. I identified myself as a moderator of HPFF and that there were questions being asked as to the legality of their product.
She informed me that the solvent traps are for the express purpose of cleaning your gun, and are not NFA items or illegal. Now, they do make an oil can suppressor, which is an NFA regulated item, but the solvent adapter is not. Anyone can buy them legally. Their shop is an FFL, and they market them openly, so I HIGHLY doubt it's illegal.
She said if anyone has questions, they can call their shop or e-mail them.

Remember, it is the buyer's responsibility to check his/her local laws to make sure the product he/she is buying is legal, but as a whole, this product is not illegal on the federal level.

When the 1st post was put up regarding these I called them as well... Was told exactly the same thing... HOWEVER.... If a person lists an item for sale... It would be a VERY VERY GOOD IDEA that they list it ACCURATELY..

The bee that got under my bonnet was the fact that these were listed as selling for $75 new.. Since you called Cadiz you know that the ones that sell for $75 are in fact the regulated ones.. needing proper stamps and transfer thru a dealer... Yes.. I agree its a matter of wording... But the words we use CAN cause issues..

For $75 you can get a nice automotive solvent pan complete with a basket so you don't lose any parts. My brother runs a transmission shop. I don't know what kind of solvent he uses but it will clean the nastiest gun quickly and easily. I must have shot 3,000 rounds through my Model 60 without cleaning it. In 15 minutes after removing the stock it was like new clean. Usually I have to let it soak in hot water to just loosen the crud. Even then it's acceptable, not like new clean.

You could just get the Tipton one for $15 or so. Attaches soda bottles, much cheapr than oil filters.
