If you thought dropping a pellet into an airgun was all that was needed, watch this video! How deeply you insert a pellet into your air rifle or air pistol can often make the difference between a dead-ringer and wall-hanger.
Pellet pens have been around for some time, and they make it easier to insert pellets into breakbarrel air guns. Because pellets are small, they can sometimes fall out of place due to an oversized loading port or just because it’s hard to handle small items.
By sliding pellets into the barrel of a pellet pen, you don’t have to worry about proper placement. Just click the pellet pen when it’s at the loading port, and a pellet is properly inserted into your airgun.
But pellet pens with pellet seaters have been shown to make a noticeable difference in accuracy. After the pellet pen has inserted the pellet in the rifle, you use the pellet seater to push the pellet further into the barrel. Watch this video and learn more about pellet pens, pellet seaters and how they can improve your accuracy and help you hit the 10-ring!
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.
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. Follow the basic steps outlined here, and you’ll enjoy shooting your CO2 pistols and rifles for years to come.
