    Hey guys I’ve owned several FX Airguns over the years and have never had to clean my barrels because they were smooth twist but now I’m about to get into slug liners for my Impact and I’m wondering if you guys ever have to clean the barrels on them for accuracy reasons or do they have a lot of led build up? And if you do is it okay to use a normal bore snake like on a powder burner firearm or run patches through it? And when you do clean them I’m sure they have a acclimation period right? Because I know FX makes their barrels with a different process than other brands. If someone has experience with smooth twist X or slug liners can you let me know what you’ve found? Thanks!

    I only used a brush a couple of times early on when leading was a problem.  I just use patches these days.

    I only clean mine when the accuracy drops off.  For awhile, when the gun was new, that was every 100 shots but now I get 600+ before accuracy drops off.  I am shooting lubed slugs in a slug liner at 960-980fps.  It is different with pellets and at different velocities and lubing lengthens the time between cleanings.

    Edit;  I use the   http://www.patchworm.com/   like Thomas

    ThomasHooker,

    I use a pull-though system called a patchworm to clean all my airgun barrles/liners that works on multiple calibers. I have an FX Crown Continuum with STX lite slug A liner that I clean after about 1500 rounds because I start seeing more flyers. Accuracy stabilizes after about 20 to 50 pellets. I have an FX Wildcat that I don't see much difference in a clean vs dirty barrel.

    My dreamline slug liner A needs a couple ballistol patches every 2000 rounds or so. I can tell when I start getting flyers and such. I shoot Kings at 880.

    Right wrong or indifferent I don't clean often and then very light. Use balistal(SP) on the cotton pellets. Shoot 2 with the solvent then 2 to dry. Also run a dry every so often, like 500-1000 rounds. I also shoot lubed ammo with WD40 silicone.
