    best way to clean a barrel?

    Post  Q-bald on 20.07.09 10:31

    Is it better to remove the inner barrel to clean it or can it be done just as well with it inside the gun?
    I broke my cleaning rod so I bought some 14" 6mm pipe cleaners.

    Yep. Take the hopup unit and bucking off. Also, polish the barrel with car polish.

    You could its a theory that it gives you tighter groupings but just cleaning it would be fine.

    Yea I remember reading a post a while back about polish. Do you let the polish dry a bit before buffing it off?
    Or just wax on wax off immediately?

    I am not sure but go for it, and if it doesn't work out, your barrel will just be nice and shiny!

    yes anything with a light cut will work. it's just to polish out the imperfections of the inside of the barrel

    you can also use any metal polish. I use brasso and it works great.

    Ok so i polished the barrel and I have about 2 inch groupings at 50 feet using iron sights. Is that pretty good for a 285mm stock barrel?

    Yeah, for a stock clone, that's great. Did you upgrade the hopup bucking?
