    There seems to be a lot of cleaning products out there for air guns

    After a stint of shooting at the gun club I noticed the stock and barrol need cleaning. (A lot of sticky fingers from other shooters wanting a go)

    Although I have a basic cleaning kit to remove these marks I would love to know what other people use such as your good selves, what experiences and recommendations you have with different products would be interesting

    For example, some people recommend using pellet lube, I find that pellet lube leaves a white powdery residue around the seals when the gun hasnt been fired for a small period of time

    Thankyou

    Well not knowing much about cleaning air guns I tend to wipe mine down with a thin coating of gun oil after use - just on the metal work, not the wood.

    As for the insides and internals of guns, I wouldn't know where to start really.

    Just for the record I use Bisley gun oil and I find this to work well enough.

    a quick wipe of the metalwork with a oily rag
    everytime you touch the gun as salt deposits from your
    fingers will lead to rust;)

    it all depends if the stock is varnished or oiled,
    if its varnished just clean with a damp cloth, if oiled
    then a nice walnut oil rubbed in now and then will
    keep it looking good.

    The metalwork I lighty oil with Tetra gun oil for the surface and tetra firearm lubricant for cleaning and conditioning the rifleing

    It is what other people use to clean the stock, it might be just a simple wipe over with a rag, a bit of spit-n-polish or you might use something that makes your stock smell nice, you tell me
