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.
