    Hi all,
    how do you clean your steyr lg110 ft? In the manual you can read this:"'In standard use the weapon operates maintenance-free and no oiling
    is required
    d." But what to do when there is water on your Steyr? Or if you want to give it that little bit extra attention? :p

    A hammer shouldn t be lubricated unless you want that the power fluctuates with temperature this is for all airguns.

    For the level use a good Teflon lube.

    Only clean it inside when you notice a problem.

    Mine is stripped and cleaned every 3 months. You would be surprised how much gets into the internals. I always wipe the rifle down with an oil cloth after use and pull the barrel through after a few hundred pellets. i also use a VFG kit 5 or 6 times a year on the barrel. The hammer is never lubed on mine.

    Mine is an older LG100 barley twist barrel.

    Thanks guys.
    so no lube on the hammer!
    and the top of the hammer spring? no lube aswell?
    The lever only needs lube in the piece that actions the bolt wright?
    ;)

    Hi, i don't put any lube around the hammer area at all. I do put a tiny (and i mean tiny) amount of grease on the inside (touching part of the roller) of the cocking lever but if you have the newer roller bearing fitted this shouldn't be necessary. I will have a look at the Seyr vids and see if there's any tips on there as well.

    Ok, thanks all. Can you also do some oil at the black painted wooden parts, or is that bad for the paint? What is the best way to clean the barrel?

    I usually:
    clean the barrel with the VFG Kit
    never lube the hammer
    open the regulator,clean it a little and lube the bellview washers with a very little tiny amount of silicone lube spray.

    Best advice I can give is leave well alone, dry it down after rain, remove cylinder and dry also. Clean the barrel with a pull through if needed when accuracy begins to worsen. You can polish the hammer once a year but I would leave the regulator alone if working properly.

    Ok, thanks. What do you mean with polishing the hammer? How do you do this?

    I don't know if your airgun is new but if it is leave it alone and shoot as much as you can that will settle and polish the internals.

    If it's a second hand and you don't know if needs a tune first shoot it and if you find a problem them start looking for a solution.

    Always clean it after use and if it gets wet put a drop of oil or any other lube in the scope mounts and butplate bolts and that s it.

    The scope mounts, scope and rail are clean with acetone before mounting :)

    Depends on your particular rifle. If mine isn't stripped down once every 3 months i've learnt (after owning the rifle for 4 years) that there WILL be crap on the hammer that will induce dropped shots. also my barrel likes to be spotless or else the groups slowly open up after 3 to 400 shots.

    I'd rather strip it than wait until the Worlds for it to fail.

    I agree with that the barrel likes to be spotless, about the hammer I never had problems and I shoot a lot in dust places, if your hammer collects crap you should check if the is grease on it or where it travels.

    I guess you don't shoot in the kind of places and weathers that me and me and Chris do :D

    The Steyr is an indoor gun that is used outdoors in all weathers. Everytime you cock it, crap gets on the lever and gets pushed into the hammer assembly.
    The result is gunk on the hammer. I am off to give mine its mid winter strip and clean right now.;):D
