What's the best way and what do use to do so ?????
VP90 Spray and a cloth wipe down and then a dry cloth to get rid of the oil so dust dont stick
What about the inside of the barrel
Pull through patch with a very small dab of vp90 prob every 18 mth to 2 years or when it stops grouping as tight but every barrel will be different some like to run dirty with certain pellets some like to run clean with others.
Thanks do you know what pellets are best suited for the rifle at the moment I'm using jsb
Theres no definite answer to that your on the right lines.. I use jsb and aa 452's 8.44 the aa seem consistant with different batch numbers... JSB different batches seem to vary a bit in different rifles its a case of trying a few and finding what works with your gear.. If you clean the barrel you will prob need to put a good 100 shots through it before its at its most accurate then shoot some groups with your pellets if they all land in the same place then all is good.
I clean my barrels every time I shoot it, if I have not lost my napier pull through kit that is!
But generally both my ev2 barrels like to be clean so I don't leave them go past 150 pellets.
You will have to find the best Die & batch for your barrel. Group at 45 and 55 yards to see which pellets group tightest.
Got about 12 different dies of jsb, pop to tondu one Saturday if you want to try /test some?
I don't clean the out side of my ev2, I just paint it black!
Ile take u up on that
I used to clean mine pretty much every time I used it so every 75ish shots. I'm using a different pellet now and not cleaned it for about 4 months. I don't think it's the pellet so much,I think alot of it is the barrel!
I only clean mine when the groups at 50yds start to open up.
Jack what pellets are you using in yours I'm using JSB I get a tight group at 35 yards but 45 -55 they ain't that neat thought it could be me so I set up on a bench and still the same out come is that a sign it needs a clean????
I'd give it a clean anyway.
Fire a dozen shots or so to let the barrel lead up a little, then try some more groups.
If they are the same, try some different pellets.
