DPT .22 Magnum Suppressor

I just bought a DPT .22 Magnum Suppressor (5 x Baffles).  I was as happy as a sand boy - until I read the "Maintenance Instructions".  Ye gawds!
Who has a DPT .22 Magnum Suppressor?  Are you happy with it?
Are you as anal about cleaning it, as DPT suggest you need to be?
I am wondering if I should have spent a little bit more money - and got one with Stainless Baffles?

I don't own one but have been considering one due to their extremely lightweight. But as you mention, the maintenance appears high so guess that's the issue to consider against other suppressors that have stainless baffles throughout hence heavier?

I have three of them for .17HMR, .223 and 6.5CM. I take them apart every 20-30 shots or so, give them a good clean, put some grease on the baffles and the thread and put them back together. Takes about 5min. The .223 had 400 shots through and first baffles is still okay for at least another 400 - that is with a 15" barrel. Don't think a .22 Magnum will do more damage...

I have a dpt 22 magnum suppressor, floats tween my 22 mag and my 17hmr.   had it about a year now prolly put about 500 rounds  1/2 -  1/2 of each through it.
Cleaned it about 3 times, the first baffles a little pitted but thats about it. I just pull apart scrub in sink, grease and forget for another 150 rounds etc.
Once i hit 1000 rounds i was thinking of getting a SS baffle. who knows, at the cost vs cost of ammo its a pittance.
