    Hi, all,

    Will Meprolights survive a trip through the ultrasonic cleaner, or should they be removed first?

    Thanks,

    I'd check with the manufacturer.
    My gut reaction is it's Ok, but ultrasonics can do strange things.

    A lot depends on the solution used as a cleaner agent, since ultrasonics often speed up any action that attacks the object in the tank.

    Since the tritium vials are "glued" in the sights, the ultrasonic action might break the bond down.

    I don't know what effect the ultrasonics would have on the vials.

    Better check the maker, than sorry. A fast email ought to do it.

    I'd love to, but their email bounces and the "Contact Us" part of their website crashes. (Besides being infested with useless Schlockwave.) :banghead: :cuss:
