    After replacing your steyr barrel with a different make does the cleaning regime subside

    I’m hoping so I am waiting on a LW barrel coming to try and get round this exact issue.

    I've just put a HW barrel on my Steyr, early days yet but fingers crossed.

    Will report my findings over the next few months, got December off work so will be able to get a few rounds down range by xmas to get an idea what's going off.

    I had one of the first long silver 550mm Steyr barrels way back in early 2012. It wouldn’t group with any Exacts but drilled with Express. Needed cleaned after every tin of pellets.
    I used is for a while but preferred my Exact loving BSA barrel that did everything it asked without any fuss and no cleaning whatsoever.
    I now have another Steyr with a black 550mm barrel. It don’t need cleaning I just do it every couple of tins or so. It drills with every type of pellet I’ve tried.
    Steyr barrels are manufactured by LW.

    Going back to the first long Steyr barrel I had that loved being clean, I used it to solely to shoot 10m and never cleaned it. I put many thousands of shots through it over a period of a few years. Never cleaned it once.
    I packed in 10m and decided to shot it for FT once again. To my surprise it was grouping extremely well with Exacts at 55yrds and didn’t require cleaning anywhere near as much as it previously did.

    Go figure?

    Have been using a Steyr fitted with an HW100 barrel for a couple of years now and it's a great set-up, only ever clean the barrel if I notice it going of slightly and then only a gentle quick clean. Last time I cleaned the barrel it had had about 3000 + pellets through it, Only takes about 4 or 5 pellets to bring ot back on song.

    Oh, and I use my rifle almost every weekend shooting HFT in all weather's and a quick rub over the barrel with a cloth that has Ballistol Oil on it, seems to keep it in top condition.

    That's interesting. I've often wondered if you can 'shoot through' the cleaning issue, but never had the nerve (or the time) to try it. I've also wondered why most Steyr barrels need to be cleaned far more often than most broadly equivalent Air Arms barrels, given that, as far as I know, they are all made by LW. Different metal perhaps? Different rifling?

    I might try a bit of constructive laziness with my Steyr during the winter, and see what happens.

    Using cz200 barrel on mine with a twin cone stripper less pellet fussy than the steyr barrel I sold and no difference in accuracy

    Thanks Dan

    Early days yet but the accuracy seems to be there, hope it doesn't require a special cleaning regime or is particularly pellet fussy, testing over time will tell.

    yes marks new barrel seems to be working exceptional well, but is it the barrel or marks talent as a shooter i would go for the latter.
