Re: Air Rifle ?
You should be able to get between 500-1500 shots before you need to clean the barrel on a spring air rifle (once properly cleaned first). The cleaning kits are good, just watch out for the steel rods in them...very easy to nick or ding a barrel and effectively ruin the gun. The cleaning pellets are worthless. They do nothing to remove lead fouling though even that happens slowly. Whatever you do, DO NOT use any oil of any kind (unless 100% approved for springers) in the firing chamber as you can gat detonation of the oil under the extreme pressure and ruin the gun. Also, never...EVER dry fire it!!! With no pellet in the breech to create back pressure in the chamber, you WILL ruin the gun's seals and spring in as little as one shot. As you can see there's a lot you can do to ruin the gun...just gotta remember what not to do. Good luck.
