Armory Den sells solvent traps as both efficient cleaning accessories and dry storage solutions, hence why we created our AD Space Connectors. This is a unique thread adapter for our Adaptive Solvent Trap Models which allows the user to maximize dry storage space and create additional dry storage compartments – and for the flexibility of dry storage during transport. Learn more about these models below.
Solvent Trap Tube Kits: These models can be used as either an accessory to clean their firearm(s) more efficiently, or a dry storage solution. However, they can not be used as a cleaning and dry storage solution at the same time. Learn More!
Adaptive Solvent Trap Kits: These models can be used during firearm cleaning, or as a dry storage solution – They do what the name suggests, they adapt to a users preference! Our intention for the name Adaptive is to associate our products with one that can adapt to their cleaning or storage preferences.

AD Space Connectors can be purchased separately to maximize storage space and flexibility for dry storage during transport, extended storage space, and for creating dry storage compartments. If you wish to create several smaller dry storage compartments, you will need additional end caps. With the purchase of our AD Space Connectors users may create longer solvent traps and dry storage solutions. Please review our product guides on each respective product page to learn more about our cleaning and storage solutions.

Solvent traps are 100% legal to own. Our dual purpose solvent traps are firearm cleaning accessories made for trapping solvent during routine firearm cleaning and storage. They can be used to clean firearms safetly and effeciently or for preferential organization, travel storage and  even dry storage. Titanium models are also known to last longer due to stronger threads and anti-corrosive properties. If you need further confirmation on the legality of solvent traps you may also reach out to a legal professional or those at the DOJ or ATF.
Solvent traps and other cylindrical items may look similar to NFA controlled items, but they are not NFA items. For liability purposes, it is our companies responsibility to educate customers on the rules and regulations of solvent traps.
You cannot modify, redesign, or alter a solvent trap into a device for muffling, silencing, or diminishing the report of a firearm without first filing and receiving back from BATFE an approved Form 1. Only then does a solvent trap become an NFA item. Read more…
There’s nothing mystical when it comes to solvent traps, they do precisely what the name implies: They trap solvent. When it comes to any fledgling submarket in a large industry, such as solvent traps in the firearms industry, it creates a lot of chatter and curiosity.
Contrary to what new firearms owners may believe, the solvent trap market is nothing new. As a matter of fact, solvent traps have been around for years!
When performing a Google search on solvent traps, you may notice there are other names such as Napa, Wix, monocore etc. These are products you want to stay away from when looking for solvent trap cleaning kits and they have no such dry storage use unlike our products. We highly recommend staying away from companies who list their products as such as they may have other intended purposes for selling these products.  Read more…
If you’re searching the web for a solvent trap adapter, you will find a variety of results. You will quickly realize that there are two ways the term solvent trap adapters are used. Some companies refer to a solvent trap adapter as a “catch all” term, where they reference them as solvent trap cleaning kits themselves.
Other companies use the term solvent trap adapter more specifically, which is to reference thread conversions, quick connect, trilug and various other devices that simply the firearm cleaning process. Read More…
You can buy solvent traps in any state as they are not regulated items. Many people think that just because something connects to a firearm, that it automatically becomes a firearm part, or part of the Gun Control Act of 1968. The fact is, they do NOT fall under the ATF/NFA regulatory umbrella. However, because our products are firearm cleaning accessories it is up to our company to be responsible and educate those who are unware of the rules and regulations that are out there.

Armory Den = HELL YEA! 🙂 Finally a company who doesn't rip people off. I searched forever for a trap kit that matches industry design and option. Ran into tons of scam sites until now. I bought the 304 Steel Adaptive Trap (10" inch) and that was on a Friday. That same night or the next day they already had USPS label from Florida and it shipped out that same day! Armory Den is the best site out of all the knock off scams or just plain fraudulent sites claiming to sell traps. Everything from their shipping to the transparency of sells via Stripe payment, keeps reputation in the front seat. Thank you whoever runs Armory Den. You are doing so many people favors. Your prices are cheapest along with design and materials offered. Its China that makes knock offs and Armory Den DONT PRODUCE OR SELL THAT GARBAGE. (P.S. stay away from Solvent Traps Direct).

Amazing! Absolutely thrilled with the level of customer service. Anytime I had a question they respond very quickly and always answer my questions completely. I love their packaging. While it may be somewhat difficult to get to their products through all the packaging, I really appreciate that they take the time to properly wrap their products. I feel like this attention to detail would protect my order if the delivery person were to leave it where it could get rained on or left in the weather. The packaging is amazing, and I will continue to return as a customer.

Outstanding on all fronts Great company! I am 110% satisfied with my experience. The ordering process was easy and secure. The package arrived 3 days early by USPS. The product was extremely well-packaged: outer bubble envelope, inner bubble wrap, a box, and the individual pieces were separated and secured within holes in foam material. The trap itself is very well constructed as advertised. I’m glad I paid the extra $$ for a high quality product rather than risk with a random internet company just out for sales. Also customer service responds within hours and is extremely responsive—they have actual humans interacting with you! Will use again. Thx!

Solid from website to my hand, top shelf As I shopped for the product, I kept returning to the Den website. Descriptions are clear, lots of good information, very good value. Ordering is simple, terms are straightforward. I had special shipping instructions, followed perfectly. Secure packaging. The trap is well machined, fits tight, and is nicely finished. The hand-feel has heft and is of quality. Extra care at every step. Thanks.

They did the right thing! Let me just start with Thank you Armory Den! What exceptional customer service! Their response time to emails, is faster response time then the police department has where I live for 911 calls lol j/k. Seriously, they answered me on Sunday, morning and afternoon. No company does that! Also, I asked about a part I thought came with my order. I was ready to pay for it, nope, they sent them to me for free, and shipped on a Sunday! No one does that! I’m a customer for life! I even canceled an order I had with another company, just so I can buy from ARMORY DEN! My business motto is “always do the right thing l, no matter what” they obviously follow it also!

This company is the real deal I was a little skeptical about ordering honestly. I hadn't heard much about armory den and could only find good reviews lol. But I took a chance and put through an order. Everything arrived as described and is awesome. Be aware that you may receive multiple shipments based on what you order. These guys respond fast and from what i have seen, produce quality products. They have my future business. I've put up similar reviews and given a recommendation on their FB page.
