Continuing our series on airgun maintenance, this video tells you more about the ins and outs, the pluses and minuses, and the pros and cons of barrel cleaning. Sometimes, a barrel that appears dirty really isn’t! Stay tuned for another lesson in keeping your air gun in top condition
Continuing with our series about how to properly clean airgun barrels, part 2 builds on what you saw in part 1.
We’ll take you through the paces of how to clean an air gun, which cleaners to use, the types of tools and when you’ll know your barrel is clean. Replay this as many times as needed to make sure you’ve got the basics before starting on your guns.
You already know that air guns are different than firearms. But did you know that airguns have different cleaning and maintenance requirements than firearms?
This is part 1 of a series about cleaning airguns. This episode tells you which airguns are most likely to need frequent cleaning and which ones will probably never need cleaning.
If you think lasers are just for military use, you need to watch this video! Lasers can really help you drill your target or quarry. Unlike scopes, lasers can easily be fitted on most air rifles and air pistols. Because lasers don’t have parallax or the same limitations as magnifying optics, they can be used on just about anything that shoots a projectile.
In this video, we tell you about the different laser beam colors, which color is best for your use, and some important points about safe and legal use. Whether lasers are used with other optical devices or in conjunction with them, you’ll notice increased accuracy when you use them.
There’s one correction we have to make to the video that could not be made post-production (and we didn’t catch during production). Almost 5 minutes into the video, we show you a row of screws that are labeled as adjustment screws for the laser. In fact, these are NOT the laser adjustment screws. They’re the screws that tighten the laser’s mount.
Dot sights are a wonderful addition to any gun that has dovetails or a mounting rail. They’re easy to use and have a rheostat to make the dot larger or smaller, which also makes the dot brighter and dimmer, respectively. Unlike scopes, you don’t have to worry about whether or not you’re putting your dot sight on an air pistol or air rifle. The same sight will work perfectly on either type of airgun.
Some dot sights have only a red dot, while others come with the option of green or blue dots. Most dot sights do not have any magnification. Those that are magnified usually have only 2x or 3x power.
Watch our video and learn about a great optical sight option that you may not have considered before.
This is the second part of a multi-part series on airgun maintenance. CO2 guns are very popular, and there are just a few simple things you need to do to maintain them in good working order.

While airguns are relatively maintenance-free compared to firearms, there are still some basic things you need to do to keep them in tip-top shape. This is the beginning of a series on airgun maintenance, and each video is about one type of powerplant.
This episode is all about penumatics — single-strokes, precharged and multi-pumps. To keep your pneumatic airguns functioning properly for years, follow the simple steps in this video and spend more time shooting and enjoying your airguns and less time having them repaired.
While your airgun may have a manual or automatic safety, that’s not we’re going to address in this video. YOU are the safety for any gun you use. Mechanical safeties can fail. You are in charge of the gun, and it’s up to you to practice the highest level of safety you can. This doesn’t mean you can’t still have fun. In fact, it means you CAN have fun because you can enjoy the shooting sports without endangering yourself or others. Watch this video, remember the safety points, practice them, internalize them and make them second nature when handling any gun…airsoft gun, airgun or firearm.
How do you know which caliber is best for what you want to do? If you hunt, do you want .177 or .22? What about .25 caliber? Is .20 caliber an optimal selection? What about target shooting? Or just plain plinking? If you have more questions than answers, then sit back and listen as we tell you some basic differences between the calibers and why you’ll want to pick one over another.
Now that this series about selecting the right airgun is coming to a close, you won’t every look at airguns the same way! From power to caliber to type of powerplant…everything impacts your choice for plinking, hunting, target shooting and more. Watch this video to make sure you have every last bit of info about picking the right gun.
