DIY fun

Air Gunner - - Your Letters -

Hello Gary Like your other con­tacts, I worry about us­ing a me­tal brush in an air­gun bar­rel. The steel al­loy that bar­rels are made from is sur­pris­ingly soft, and con­tin­ued abra­sion from a cop­per brush could cause pre­ma­ture wear. I have found that felt wads, such as those made by VFG, are ideal. I rod sev­eral through with some light gun oil on them and then run dry ones through un­til they come out clean. This takes just a few min­utes and I have com­plete con­fi­dence that no dam­age can be­fall my pre­cious bar­rel. Ed. This is a fun tar­get that dances about when hit. It takes no time to make, and only costs a £1. You screw the springs to a piece of wood and then tape the door wedges to the springs and off you go. John Whitelaw Glas­gow

Hello John, It con­stantly fas­ci­nates me just how in­no­va­tive our read­ers are. I’ve seen tar­gets made from any num­ber of ev­ery­day things and this just proves how easy it can be. Well done! Ed.
