Usually, the term “blemished” refers to any product with minor cosmetic defects, which don’t affect the performance or integrity of the product. The flaw could be a slight scratch, ding, or a little imperfection. Well, some consumers may think a blemished product is substandard, but this isn’t the case, especially when it comes to our solvent traps.
We hold our products to a higher standard, even the ones described as “blemished.” The product may not be perfect, but the blemish doesn’t affect its quality or performance.
A solvent trap is an accessory that is designed for firearm cleaning. The tool’s purpose is to trap or capture the solvent during the bore cleaning process. This makes it easy to transport, dispose of the solvent, or even store it for future use. Overall, it makes the entire firearm cleaning process environmentally friendly.
Our solvent traps are made to serve one primary purpose—firearm cleaning. The company promotes the use of its products only for the purposes they are designed for. The following are five blemished products to buy:
This product, though blemished, works just the same as the unblemished prototype. It contains minor cosmetic defects such as scratches or anodization nicks, but that doesn’t affect its performance or quality. It works just the same as the complete Aluminum 1.45″ OD Solvent Trap Tube Kit, which is one of the hottest sellers.
The product comes with 7075 Aircraft Aluminum thread protectors and sealed end caps. It’s designed to reduce wear and tear from constant on and off threading. Its design meets the requirements of many consumers looking for something not too long and not too short; not too narrow and not too wide. More importantly, it holds a perfect weight balance and doesn’t break the bank.
This blemished product works perfectly the same as the complete model. Its thread pitch is M34 x 1.25″, requiring thread protectors and end caps from us. While it’s a blemished product, mechanically, it’s in working order. It’s versatile and comes with an aluminum spacer that locks everything into place for a flawless fit with no rattling.
This thread adapter, though blemished, works perfectly as the tube used in the complete 7075 Billet Type II Anodized Aluminum Adaptive Solvent Trap. It works for solvent traps with a thread pitch of 1.375-24 TPI to adapt to devices with 1.1875-24 TPI pitch to simplify the connection and disconnection of the solvent trap for quick and efficient firearm cleaning.
Most importantly, this device eliminates the unnecessary time spent using a vice and an AR wrench to install a solvent trap.
This blemished product has some cosmetic defects, but it’s in good working order mechanically—the same tube used in the complete 9″ Aluminum 7075 Solvent Trap Kit (D Cell). However, the company’s D-Cell referencing doesn’t mean it guarantees any D Cell K Cups bought from anywhere would just fit.
This model of solvent trap comes with the two most common thread protectors—1/2 x 28″ and 5/8 x 24. Its inner diameter is 1.375″ (D-Cell), while its outer diameter is 1.73″. It has an end cap thread that allows for easy swapping. Additionally, it comes with a lip at the bottom of each stackable K-Style Storage Cup to ensure a tight seal during transport.
This solvent trap tube is a longer version of the 1.45 OD Aluminum Solvent Trap Tube Kit. Though blemished, it works just perfectly as the original model. Some users call it the affordable yet outstanding option. Its thread protectors and the sealed end cap feature 7075 Aircraft Aluminum and are Type III (hard coat) anodized to reduce threading wear and tear.
The blemished version is a viable product at a reasonable price without compromising quality. It’s a reliable firearm cleaning solution with two common thread protector sizes that work across a range of calibers. Additionally, it embraces top quality, ensuring long-term thread use, finish, and viability when trapping potentially corrosive and harmful solvents.
While some consumers might see blemished products as sub-quality, the truth is that these products work the same as the complete models. As noted earlier, blemished products are mainly minor cosmetic defects such as finish/anodization nicks, scratches, or clouding, among others.
Mechanically, these defects don’t affect the quality or performance of the product. All our blemished items remain in working order. Besides, the available products are more affordable than the complete models. This means that you save some money by purchasing a blemished item.
Besides, the company allows consumers to return these products on a case-by-case basis. However, consumers are responsible for funding return labels on any blemished item.
