• Both the Model 1 and Model 2 are designed to be fired with wipes which can be augmented with the use of an ablative agent. An ablative agent is a grease-like substance that, within a silencer’s chambers, assists in cooling and disrupting the flow of propellant gases resulting in further sound reduction. The process of adding an ablative agent is known as “shooting wet.”
• The Model 1 silencer is designed to allow the addition of an ablative agent to the chambers of module 2.
• Various ablative agent products suitable for use with silencers are commercially available. Petroleum jelly, grease, cable-pulling lubricant and other substances have been found to be effective. Hush Puppy® Project silencers use a petroleum jelly product we call Puppy Drool™ for use in the Model 1.
• If a water-based ablative agent is used, be sure to dry the silencer thoroughly after use.
• When placing an ablative agent into the chambers of module 2, care should be taken not to overpack the chambers with agent. Do not completely fill the chambers with any abalative agent! Simply smear a small coating of agent along the edge of the chambers, on both sides, leaving the bore area clear for the bullet to pass through the chambers and wipes. Overpacking the chambers with an ablative agent may result in overpressure and damage to the silencer.
• You can choose which chambers should contain ablative agent and experiment with how much agent provides the best results. Please see the pull-down page under "Silencers" on "Tunable Technology" for more information
• If shooting with module 3 installed, merely coat each wipe in the stack of six wipes with a light layer of ablative agent.
• "Shooting wet" with an ablative agent is one of the main benefits of "Tunable Technology" and the many options and configurations available to the Model 1 owner.
An ablative agent is a grease-like substance that assists in cooling and disrupting the flow of propellant gases resulting in further sound reduction. This technique is called "shooting wet."
Use a Q-Tip® to apply a thin coating of ablative agent onto the wipes and the wipe chamber(s).
Apply a light coat of ablative agent to all surfaces in each wipe chamber. Do not overfill with gobs of agent! Just a light coat!
