And now let’s talk about the latest development in the barrel-to-oil filter thread adapter business; the integrated muzzle adapters that bring a complete “dual use” system that makes their use even more convenient. Some of these systems allow you to use your own muzzle device, and some include a muzzle break. The key point here is that with this system you will never have to remove your muzzle break to attach your solvent trap ever again. Here we finally have what appears to be the industry’s first complete and semi-permanent solution for all your “solvent-trapping” needs.
This may end up being the be-all-and-end all of solvent trap systems, and is by far the best we’ve ever seen. There are already a few variants of these on the market. Below we’ll provide the manufacturer’s description of one of them (The “IMACS”) to give you an idea of what they can do. Since Amazon will pull any listings with “too much” detail about these adapters and solvent traps, most listings there won’t tell you what these things are really capable of. Use your imagination.
Here are links to a few of these products:
We’d love to hear a review in our comments if you have experience with this type of system.
Below is the IMACS manufacturers description and images. You won’t see all of this on his Amazon listing, but here’s everything you need to know about the IMACS.
**Update, this product has been pulled from Amazon, but we think the information is still helpful to you. There are lots of products for sale on Amazon just like it.
This system seems like it could work with either the Oil Filter solution or the Fuel Filter solution. It doesn’t mention whether it would work with a Maglite, but with the right threaded adapter, anything is possible. We asked the manufacturer of the IMACS about his system not including a muzzle break/flash hider and his response made good sense; “Regarding the devices with fixed muzzle breaks, The advantage of the IMACS device is that it allows the user to use any kind of muzzle break they prefer instead of being limited to the one permanently fixed on the other adapters.”

This Patent Pending Coupling System ….
is designed to remain on the barrel for convenience and quicker weapon cleaning – in the field, while camping, on the gun range, around the house, etc.
Enhances the ease of barrel and gas tube cleaning by allowing oil and fuel filters (or other solvent catch devices) to attach by sliding over existing flash suppressors or muzzle devices
permits the attachment of Class 3 suppressors without the removal of existing flash suppressors allowing for quick deployment of Class 3 suppressors across multiple IMACS provisioned weapons while re-indexing to a constant position for repeatable accuracy
provides an indexed attachment location for additional gun accessories freeing the use and real estate of the quad rail.
