Is this normal with a suppressor? I'm running a Superlative adjustable block and the suppressor is a Gemtech quicksand TI. I was pretty shocked at how dirty the rounds were inside the mag.

Leave a round in the chamber overnight and then eject it and see what it looks like.

Remember, you're getting gas blowback... normal.

Like mentioned, leave a round in over night and yuk!

Good thing I have a stainless tumbler set up haha. I did have a few spent cases tonight that were spotless. This is my first suppressed set up so I'm wanting to make sure I'm doing it right.

Agree with both points, and it's still totally worth it. Dirty mags and brass don't hurt a thing but I don't leave a round in the chamber overnight after firing any more!

No need to be ashamed of your dirty mags. We are non-judgmental around here.

Mostly.

Lol I'm a little OCD about my brass. But I can live with it. With the can on the end do you clean the barrels and chamber more often? I guess that would cause me to actually clean a gun which I never do until season is over

That is normal. I clean (dry lube)my chamber, mags, BCG, and upper receiver after each use for reliability. I only clean my barrel when accuray has been affected

Oh, I can understand the OCD tendencies. My old man taught me to clean a rifle EVERY time we handled it. I swear, the first time I spray painted a rifle, I almost cried. Today, forget about it. I will shoot them until they either lose their grouping or won't chamber. Then it's time to clean them. Honestly, just keep your chamber clean and you won't have an issue. A dirty barrel shoots better...within reason.

I did something a little different last fall when I assembled an AR for my first suppressor. I used Hornady one shot cleaner/lube on everything but the trigger group. No adjustable gb, cheap bolt group,carbine stock and 18" barrel/mid length gas tube. Shot some coyote,coon and targets from Dec on. About 75-100 rounds still grouping very well and haven't cleaned anything on it. I will plink with it and continue to check groups and see how many rounds until groups open up, or a pd trip rolls around. Hornady one shot is a dry lube.

Don't forget to lube your trigger group, running suppressed in my ar has caused the trigger to do light strikes, cleaned and lubed the pivot pins and fixed it so far.

It sounds like you use "dirty" and "fouled" synonymously. What would you call an excessively fouled barrel?

To me, a dirty barrel is showing signs of excessive fouling. Just curious
