Reply To: cleaning your target gun
I don;’t lean the bores of my air rifles/pistols as such.
After each session, they get a pull through with a VFG Pocket Kit, with the felt being impregnated with PTFE grease (Lupus grease in this case).
This is not for cleaning as such, but rather to preserve the bore and protect from rusting.
I live less than a 100 yards from the English Channel, in an old, cold, leaky, and not centrally-heated Victorian house.
Steel will rust as you look at it !
Have fun & a good Sunday,
