I have a few Benji guns, EB22 and recently acquired HB22 & 392. All seem to have the famous over spray paint in the barrel. Would accuracy improve by removing it?
and what would be the cleanest and safest way to remove it, (paint remover or brass cleaning brush) without damaging the outside paint or the inside of the barrel?

Sand blast is the most thorough way to get into all the pits you might have!

Don't think accuracy would be affected. You could try carefully dabbing some rubbing alcohol on a q-tip and scrubbing that area. Let the alcohol soak for a bit. Be careful not to get it on the outside paint.

Thanks for all the responses, I think I'm going to leave it for know, they seem to shoot accurate and I'm picky with my guns and don't want to ruin the outside paint.
It's funny, I'm more of a springer guy but my friend has a 397 and the .20cal version rifle and he convinced me to get the 392 and do you what I actually really like it. When I shot his I didn't like all the hard pumping, but for some reason my 392 maybe because it was used didn't seem as hard to pump. The main thing I really like is that it's light!!! and hits hard.
I never like to leave guns stock so maybe some Steroid parts my be needed. LOL

Soda blasting!!
I made a soda blaster (using sodium bicarbonate) to strip paint and varathane from wood. This is the shizzle, will remove virtually any finish without damaging the coated material. Simple to build and the sodium is dirt cheap (pick up from sandblasting suppliers).

Do it outdoors or a well ventilated area! Acetone really messes with my brain! :oops:
