Not near as fun as shooting! I just cleaned my Spectre II the first time. I used the vinager and hydrogen peroxide "dip". I worked great. However it melted the coat hanger I used to hang the baffles on. I also have a pickle jar of some nasty stuff. Anyone every try this? If you are going to try it. READ AS MUCH AS YOU CAN ABOUT IT FIRST!!!!

First time I cleaned my Spectre II, I put it in a stainless steel media tumbler for 20 hours before it got it almost spotless. Still had to clean the inside corners out a little near the end of the process.
Now that yours is clean, read the following article before you shoot it again and use their treatment (bottom 1/3 of the page). I use the silicone oil treatment (Amazon carries the oil) and it's a breeze to clean now.

darn good read the 1st time I read it, then bought all needed to do it

and low and behold it works like a champ

don't need to order oil from amazon, go to auto zone and get some dot #5 brake fluid, advance auto parts didn't have it on the shelf that day.
got an 11oz bottle for about 11.00$, and was enough using a tall slender glass jar to cover all the baffles

the stainless steel media I did get from amazon, was .255" in length and .047" in diameter

started tumbler and checked at 3 hours, you could tell something was happening, at 6 there was a change, at 9 cleaned damn near like new. but also put a spoon full of dish soap in with a water mix. and of course finish with a tooth brush for touch up

haven't had it apart since, only put about 250 rounds through it, at 1000 will be interesting to see

and again, was a good read

I've got to clean a sparrow soon, I'm dreading it. I don't have a stainless tumbler, and am nervous about using the dip. Any other ways? I cleaned it right after I shot it the first few times, and that lead is hard to scrape off.

Has anyone tried using Sea Foam? It seems like it would work, but I'm guessing.

I tried the silicone oil dip, it worked but I'll stick with soaking my suppressors in Berrymans Chem-Dip.
It's the easiest way that I have found to clean all the crud off a suppressor. Just take it apart, put everything in the basket, lower the basket into the can of Chem-Dip, let it soak for 1-2 days, remove the parts and wipe them off.

I have a Harbor Freight sonic cleaner. It didn't do much to clean mine.
