Brilliant range there!!

Cleaning the barrel of the Steyr H5A could be quite tricky.. Not a fan of taking the barrel out, so I used to use cleaning pellets for mine.. They are kinda expensive so moved to a solution i picked up off one of Ted’s videos..

Made a pull through using a nylon grass cutter line . I bend the sharp end of the line into an L after piercing it through a patch and pass it through the magazine slot, into the breech. At first its a little fiddly but once you get the hang of it, its very easy and really quick to clean. I have noticed this barrel does require regular cleaning tho. Maybe cus you end up shooting a lot more pellets. Its such and addictive rifle..
Will take pictures and share them here on my next clean ….
