May I ask what's your new gun?!

The initial cleaning process for a BB replica must be different from a HW97 right?!

And for some models, maybe you can do some extra jobs while you cleaning it which can save you lots of time and money in the future....

You don't want to use any gun solvents on an airgun. I use Goo Gone on a patch to clean the barrel well when new, and won't clean it with any frequency thereafter. RC

This is a really good one to keep!

I believe we have good owners here and be glad to share with their experience!

Why not open a topic about how to do it?

I got it from Amazon since nobody sells it around here. Been around for 100 years. BIG sewing places might sell it since it's used in sewing machine maintenance as well.
