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.

Solvent Trap Adapters for Cleaning Pistols
If you have purchased or thinking about purchasing a solvent trap cleaning kit for a browning style pistol, such as a Glock, you may have run into a common issue depending on the diameter of the solvent trap. Glocks have guide rods like many other firearms in its class. When the solvent trap is connected to a Glock, and the slide is racked (or cocked), the guide rod protrudes from of the front of the pistol hitting the installed solvent trap. This is a very common problem we solved.
When this occurs, the slide of the firearm is stopped in its tracks and will not rack at all. This makes it impossible to run solvent through the firearm when a solvent trap is installed. Armory Den is extremely in tune with customer feedback. We responded to our customers through action and problem solving. The way we solved the guide rod problem is by offering Muzzle Extention Device that work with select solvent trap kits. This allows the slide to rack and provides enough room for the guide rod to stick out fully, without coming in contact with the solvent trap kit.
The video on our homepage provides a visual demonstration of the guide rod problem on a Glock 19 Gen 5 MOS, and the Muzzle Extention Device as a solution. The solvent trap that was used during this video is a 7” Aluminum Tube 1.45”OD Solvent Trap Kit and the compatible M34 Muzzle Extension Device.
Solvent Trap Adapters for Cleaning Rifles
Rifle cleaning can be straightforward, but when it comes to efficiently using a solvent trap on popular rifles such as the AR-15 or AR-10, selecting the correct kit can be the difference in a 45 second connect/disconnect process and a 30 minute connect/disconnect process.
Standard AR-15s come with a flash hider that is threaded onto a 1/2x28” barrel. Likewise, AR-10s come with a flash hider threaded onto a 5/8x24” barrel. In either case, flash hiders are not hand tight, they shouldn’t be… They are normally installed so securely that it takes a vice and an AR-15 Wrench equipped with a flash hider remover to remove the part. This is required because the solvent trap must take its place during the cleaning process.
There are many items on the market that can be used to quickly and conveniently connect and disconnect the solvent trap to AR-15s and AR-10s. What is important though is that you know what you are getting into and that the correct kit is purchased, with standardized thread protectors and adapters, allowing for these solvent trap adapters adapt. Armory Den’s 1.57” Outer Diameter Adaptive Solvent Trap Kits are one of the most popular options because they come with a 1.375-24” thread pitch on the tubes and cups and an optional 1.375-24 TPI to 1.1875-24 TPI Adapter.
