    Others will have different ideas but I just got a little plastic squeeze bottle with a pointed tip for the liquid to come out. I found it at a restaurant supply store; it is intended for ketchup, mustard or olive oil. Just hold the gun horizontal, put the tip in the muzzle of the suppressor and give a little squeeze. You only want a half teaspoon or so, at least for a .22, it won’t go back to the gun, it will get caught in the baffles.

    Link - I've been waiting forever to use that.


    “Wet” suppressors or “wet cans” use a small quantity of water, oil, grease or water-based wire-pulling lubricant in the expansion chambers to cool the propellant gases and reduce their volume (See ideal gas law). The coolant lasts only a few shots before it must be replenished, but while it lasts it can greatly increase the effectiveness of the suppressor.

    My can comes apart for easy cleaning, So using water doesn't hurt them and does quiet them a little more...

    makes it even more quiet, that is why. works well for .45 but you will have to deal with back splatter from the ejection port.

    to the op, if you are at the range and to make it easy, get a wide mouth gatorade bottle and dip the can muzzle first all the way in. let all of the excess drain out and have fun.

    if shooting subs you get into the magical hollywood quiet (especially if using a quality can).
