Maintenance Guide: Air Gun Cleaning and Regular Care


It is important to understand that most air guns do not require regular cleaning. In fact unlike traditional firearms, which are subjected to carbon deposits from gunpowder and metal filings from jacketed bullets, an air gun barrel can often go thousands of shots without ever needing to be cleaned.


So, instead of a cleaning that follows every shooting, air gun care is more dependent on the type of gun you are using:



Remember, cleaning the barrel is not the only type of regular maintenance needed. All air guns are different, and depending on what you are shooting (e.g. spring piston, pre-charged pneumatic, multi-pump pneumatic) different methods of oiling and maintenance are required. So in order to ensure your gun is receiving the care it needs, be sure to consult the owner’s manual.
