Air rifle cleaning kits - why do you need one?
The obvious one first. You go out, it gets wet. You don't clean it afterwards and things start to get rusty and
after a while you notice that the action is horrible and your shots don't go as far as they used to or penetrate as
far. In short you're rifle becomes a bit crap!
Simple pre and post use maintenance can solve this easily and doesn't take long.
- Simply oil moving parts.
- Grease springs.
- Clean gunk out of the barrel.
For best results use products designed specifically for rifle care. My favourite is the Bisley range. They do a
great set of brushes and barrel cleaners and another superb set of mixed oils and greases that covers all the
bases. Get one or something like it.
Cleaning = More power for your rifle
Not only does good cleaning take the danger of falling power and range away - it can actually significantly
improve it. Here's a story from a customer of mine -
Fired a milbro Jet at the yellow pages, and buried itself 450 pages.
sed the Abbey oils and greases, spring,
trigger, lever, sear, etc etc. and
Bisley barrel cleaning kit and apart from
being much smoother and quieter, got
to about 700 pages in
the big yellow book.
Nuff said - So if you don't have, as they'd say in the
US, a "cleaning solution" then get one sorted out quick.
