Air Gun Maintenance Guide: Caring for Your Rifle or Pistol

Your one stop shop for air gun parts, cleaning instructions and owner’s manuals

Air guns are by no means high maintenance. Durably built and boasting notoriously long lives, these pistols and rifles often get passed on from generation to generation – shooting just as powerfully and accurately as the day they first came off the shelf.

This certainly does not mean that air guns require no maintenance. Even the most expertly crafted air gun will fall into disrepair if subjected to a lifetime of abuse. More importantly, not understanding how to properly store or handle your gun can cause damage and permanently alter your shooting performance and accuracy.

This is when Pyramyd Air can help. Whether you are looking for advice on oiling your gun and cleaning the barrel or you need help finding replacement parts, this air gun maintenance guide is designed to point you in the right direction. Browse the list below for cleaning and maintenance tips, owner’s manuals and repair parts. And of course, if you ever need the advice of one of our air gun experts, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Air gun Manuals: Reading the owner’s manual is probably the most important thing you can do. This is because not all air guns are created equal, with different air guns requiring very different types of maintenance. But don’t worry if you can’t find your original manual. This section of our maintenance guide offers downloadable links to just about every air gun manual imaginable.

Cleaning and Maintenance: It is important to note that not every air gun has the same needs in terms of cleaning and maintenance. In fact, some air rifles and pistols may not require any cleaning at all. This part of our maintenance section offers direction on how to properly care for and maintain your gun.

Parts and Accessories: While air guns are mostly maintenance free, there are times when you may want to invest in replacement parts and accessories. This section of our air gun maintenance guide offers links to the parts designed to keep your air gun working and looking like new.
