Aluminium Mods

Recommended Posts

WD40 displaces water, hence the name. If the moderator is prone to collecting water vapour and condensation then WD40 will help displace it. However, WD40 is flammable, hence you might not like the results of firing through it if you then don't remove all the WD40. Aluminium isn't particularly prone to water damage, hence there may be no need to displace water in the moderator if it is accumulating there. (We fail to see how).

It's always a good ideal to give the inside a light coating of wd is as said above it is primarily to disperse water however any unburnt gun powder that is lying in the moderator if left for long periods of time can be corrosive as stated on most powder bottles. Wd40 neutralizes the powder and will certainly reduce the rate it corrodes the steel or reduces the rate of oxzadisation on aluminium. But the word light coating is key. As mentioned above it is flammable so less is sometimes better

My shooting buddy used to soak his T8 with WD and first firing was smoky but nothing else.

Too many Doctor Dooms

You won't have a problem with WD. 

The problems always come when folk use a C/F mod on a rimfire for a while, spray it, then fire a C/F through it.

Kaboom.:lol:

Rimfire's dont burn all their powder....centrefires do.
