ACCURACY INTERNATIONAL
Accuracy International was formed in 1978 to design and build tactical rifles.
The original design ethos combined two factors into a unique package. Namely the
incorporation of performance enhancing features learned in Olympic and international target
shooting onto a platform exhibiting full military ruggedness.
The current designs faithfully follow this original concept, but also benefit from over twenty
years of continuous improvement.
These improvements are not cosmetic, but are driven solely by the needs of the users,
highly trained military and police units in over 60 countries worldwide.
Such units are exposed to ‘live’ tactical situations on a daily basis and in the most
demanding environments where first shot accuracy is critical.
The rifles are produced in a purpose built 20,000sq. ft. facility in the UK, operating a
management system certified to BS EN ISO9001:2008.
All components are manufactured to Accuracy International’s designs to ensure that they
are optimised for the function they must perform, something that cannot be achieved with a
ruggedized-sporting weapon.
The AX308 sniper rifle is an evolution, which builds on Accuracy International’s established
family of highly successful AW rifles.
A bolt-action single shot rifle with free-floating barrel and a magazine capacity of ten rounds
fulfils the need for a highly accurate long range sniper rifle.
Like the AW series, all AX rifles utilise an aluminium chassis system, which ensures
insensitivity to temperature and humidity, thus ensuring a constant zero.
The forend tube design provides multiple mounting points for accessory rails, sling
attachments and bipod mounts.
The AX308 rifle is easily upgradeable with a number of accessories and upgrades which
can be purchased from Accuracy International distributors.

1.1 SAFETY FEATURES





The AX308 rifle bolt utilises six forward locking lugs.
When the bolt is in the closed position the bolt head is enclosed and supported within the
lock ring and action body.
The firing pin cannot protrude from the front of the bolt face unless the bolt lugs are
engaged within the lock ring.
Dangerous gas leakage from the rear of the action body is minimised by a tight fitting bolt
and a shroud assembly that assists the deflection of hot gases away from the operator.
3-position safety lever.
1.2 FIRING PIN COCKING INDICATOR
It is possible to determine if the Accuracy International AX308 rifle is ‘cocked’ and therefore ready
to fire by the position of the firing pin protruding through the rear of the shroud.

AX308 - USER MANUAL
1.4 SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
WARNING - Users and personnel responsible for the weapon must comply with the following
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS. For the purposes of health and safety, all warnings and cautions must
be adhered to.
Safety precautions should be carried out:

On initial receipt of the weapon.

Before use.

After use.

Before maintenance or cleaning procedures

Before any inspection procedure.

Before any non tactical movements.

Prior to the weapon being placed in a transit case or drag bag.

When the documentation recommends it.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS:
 Hold the weapon securely, do not place finger inside trigger guard.
 Point the weapon in a safe direction.
 Remove magazine (if fitted).
 Check that the safety is in the ‘fire’ position.
 Orientate the ejection port downwards and open the bolt and slide to rear.
 Watch for a live cartridge or empty case ejecting
 Inspect the chamber and bolt face for a live cartridge or empty case.
 Visual Check - Look through the ejection port.
 Physical Check - Use a finger to check the chamber and bolt face.
 Remove any cartridge or case from the weapon.
 With the bolt left ‘open’, the rifle is now safe to handle.
Where possible, the bolt should be left ‘open’ to identify to others that it is safe. However, should
the bolt be required in the ‘closed’ position:
 Pull and hold the trigger while closing the bolt.
 Fit an empty magazine, if required.
 The rifle is now safe to handle.
WARNING - DANGER TO LIFE AND LIMB: IF THE BOLT IS NOT FULLY CLOSED
WHEN THE RIFLE IS FIRED, THE COCKING PIECE COULD STRIKE THE BOLT
CAUSING POSSIBLE MISFIRES.


The extractor does not engage the cartridge rim unless the bolt is fully closed.
Failure to fully close the bolt every time it is manipulated may result in a live round being
left in the chamber.

Attempting to load a second round will result in a stoppage. This is known as “double
feeding”.

1.5 WARNINGS
THE USE OF MISMATCHING ‘FIRING TRAIN’ PARTS AND ASSEMBLIES POSES
A SERIOUS RISK TO LIFE AND LIMB. DO NOT FIRE THE RIFLE IF THE SERIAL
NUMBERS OF THE ACTION BODY, BOLT AND BOLT / FIRING PIN ASSEMBLY
DO NOT MATCH.
WEAPON STATUS.
When the users are not aware of the weapon status, i.e. loaded, unloaded, cocked or fired, the
user must assume the weapon is LOADED and carry out the SAFETY PRECAUTIONS set out in
section 1.4.
HANDING OVER WEAPONS.
A weapon which is to be handed over to another individual must be unloaded and presented with
the bolt in the ‘open’ or rearwards position.
TACTICAL MOVEMENTS.
Tactical movements with a loaded weapon are only to be performed with the safety lever on ‘2nd
safe’ position.
WARNING - DANGER TO LIFE AND LIMB: THE TRIGGER UNITS FITTED INTO
ACCURACY INTERNATIONAL RIFLES ARE DESIGNED AND FACTORY SET AS
TWO-STAGE TRIGGERS. THEY MUST NOT BE ADJUSTED UNDER ANY
CIRCUMSTANCES INTO A SINGLE STAGE TRIGGER. TRIGGER UNITS SHOULD
ONLY BE ADJUSTED IN ACCORDANCE WITH ‘APPROVED’ ACCURACY
INTERNATIONAL MAINTENANCE MANUALS.
FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THIS WARNING COULD RESULT IN SERIOUS
INJURY OR DEATH.
1.6 SAFETY LEVER - FIELD SAFETY CHECK
The following procedure should be carried out before each time the rifle is used to ensure the
safety lever is functioning correctly . This does not replace the need to have the safety
mechanism routinely tested in accordance with the Accuracy International Maintenance Manual.

Ensure the weapon is unloaded and safe to handle.

With the bolt assembly fitted into the action body, open then close the bolt leaving it in
the cocked position.

Move the safety lever into the ‘1st safe’ position. See section 1.3.

Pull then release the trigger six times, remove your finger from the trigger.

Push the safety lever forward into the ‘FIRE’ position.

The firing pin should not be released, but still be retained by the safety mechanism.

Pull the trigger to release the firing pin.

Repeat this process two or three times to confirm that the system is safe.

If the firing pin is released when the safety lever is moved to the fire position the rifle is
deemed unsafe and must be returned to an Accuracy International trained armourer or
gunsmith for maintenance in accordance with the Accuracy International maintenance
manual.

AX308 - USER MANUAL
1.7 CARTRIDGE HEADSPACE
Cartridge headspace defines the distance between the bolt face and the cartridge datum
reference within the chamber when the bolt is closed, as shown in the image below. This is a
critical safety feature on all rifles, regardless of manufacturer.
For the user’s safety and to maximise cartridge compatibility, the headspace measurement on
every Accuracy International rifle is inspected before leaving the factory.
However, during the working life of the rifle, wear to key components and new barrel fitting may
increase the cartridge headspace. If this becomes excessive, it can lead to misfires, a loss of
accuracy, and possible damage to the rifle due to a ruptured case.
It is therefore essential to check the cartridge headspace using Accuracy International
specification gauges throughout the life of the rifle, particularly after a new barrel is fitted.
EXCESSIVE HEADSPACE CAN BE HAZARDOUS AND MAY LEAD TO
MISFIRES AND CARTRIDGE CASE RUPTURES
Instructions for checking the headspace dimension:
Headspace gauges are used to specify a maximum headspace for safety purposes using ‘GO’
and ‘NO GO’ gauges.
1.
2.
3.
4.
Ensure the chamber is clean before inserting the gauge into the chamber through the
ejection port. Note: - To prevent damaging the chamber, ensure the gauge is fully inserted
into the chamber before attempting to close the bolt.
Gently close the bolt handle down to a stop, without using excessive force.
If the bolt closes fully on the ‘GO’ gauge the headspace is acceptable.
If the bolt closes fully on the ‘NO GO’ gauge using a minimum amount of force, the
headspace is out of tolerance and indicates that the rifle’s accuracy and safety is
compromised – the rifle must be inspected by a suitably qualified gunsmith/armourer
before further use.

8. STOPPAGE AND TROUBLESHOOTING DRILLS
If the rifle, magazines and ammunition are kept clean and maintained correctly, few stoppages
should occur. However, if the rifle does fail to fire or operate as expected, the following drills must
be carried out.
FAILURE TO FIRE: IF THE RIFLE FAILS TO FIRE, MAINTAIN AIM IN A SAFE DIRECTION
FOR AT LEAST 30 SECONDS BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO OPEN THE BOLT. THE
CARTRIDGE’S PRIMER MAY BE BURNING SLOWLY AND MAY CAUSE WEAPON TO FIRE
UNEXPECTEDLY. FAILURE TO FIRE CAN BE CAUSED BY A SLOW BURNING PRIMER, A
LIGHT STRIKE FROM THE FIRING PIN OR A ROUND NOT BEING LOADED INTO THE
CHAMBER
IN ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, CARE MUST BE TAKEN WHEN THE BOLT IS OPENED - A
FAULTY ROUND MAY STILL FIRE.
Master Stoppage Drill
The Master Stoppage drill should be carried out to determine the nature of the stoppage.
 Follow the 30 second rule above.
 Open the bolt and slowly pull it to the rear; a live round may be ejected. Inspect the
inside of the action body and chamber.
 Inspect inside the action body as the next action will depend on what has been seen
inside the action body.
Rounds in the Magazine
If there are rounds in the magazine but no round in the chamber, the magazine could be
incorrectly fitted or the bolt may not have been cycled correctly.
 Check that the magazine is correctly fitted, if necessary remove and refit.
 Pull the bolt fully rearwards, then push forwards and close.
 Continue firing.
No rounds in the magazine
Remove the empty magazine.
Fit a loaded magazine onto the rifle.
Pull the bolt fully rearwards then push forwards and close.
Continue firing.




IF ANY RESISTANCE IS FELT WHILE ATTEMPTING TO CLOSE THE BOLT - STOP. DRAW
THE BOLT REARWARDS AND CHECK THE ACTION BODY AND CHAMBER FOR
OBSTRUCTIONS:
Obstruction in the action body—failure to eject
If there is a live round or empty case present, this must be removed.
 Remove the magazine.
 Carefully remove the obstruction.
 Do not reload the removed live round until it has been inspected and deemed safe.
 Check the chamber is clear.
 Refit the magazine.
 Pull the bolt fully rearwards then push forwards and close.
 Continue firing.
The operator should check for component damage or obstructions that may impede the ejection
of the weapon. Consistent failures to eject should be investigated by an Accuracy International
qualified gunsmith or armourer.
29
AX308 - USER MANUAL
STOPPAGE AND TROUBLESHOOTING DRILLS (CONTINUED)
Obstruction in the chamber—failure to extract
If a live round or empty case is present in the chamber, this must be removed.

Remove the magazine.

Close the bolt fully.

Set the safety to the ‘1st safe’ position.

Open the bolt to clear the obstruction.

Check chamber is clear.

Refit the magazine.

Pull the bolt fully rearwards, then push forwards and close.

Set the safety to the ‘Fire’ position.

Continue firing.
Should the above drill not clear the obstruction, check the bolt and extractor for damage.
Consistent failures to extract should be investigated by an Accuracy International qualified
gunsmith or armourer. A cleaning rod may be used to remove an EMPTY case only by carefully
inserting it into the bore from the muzzle end of the barrel.
ALWAYS ENSURE THE CLEANING ROD IS REMOVED FROM THE BARREL
BEFORE CONTINUING TO FIRE.
Slow burning primer/hang fire
If a round does not fire after 30 seconds eject the round and inspect it. If the primer strike looks
positive, the round must not be used and be disposed of safely. Persistent problems must be
investigated and the ammunition batch should not be used until examined further.
Light Strike
This can indicate that the bolt was not fully closed. Ensure that the bolt is closed fully each time a
cartridge is chambered. The bolt may also require cleaning and light lubrication. If the problem
continues, stop using the rifle and have it examined by an Accuracy International qualified
gunsmith or armourer.
‘Pierced’ or ’Blanked’ Primer
Should the ejected empty case have a ‘pierced’ or ’blanked’ primer, the user should inspect the
firing pin tip for damage. If the firing pin is damaged or if the problem persists, have the rifle
examined by an Accuracy International qualified gunsmith or armourer.
Hard Extraction
Hard extractions can be caused by a number of factors. A heavily ‘fouled’ barrel and chamber is a
common cause. The rifle should therefore be cleaned regularly, as set out in the maintenance
section of this manual. The user should also inspect the bolt head and extractor for cleanliness
and or damage. Prolonged ’rapid’ firing may also cause hard extractions. If this is the case,
allowing the rifle to cool more frequently, if practical, may ease the problem.
Any other problems must be investigated by an Accuracy International qualified gunsmith or
armourer

9. TELESCOPIC SIGHT ADJUSTMENTS
The AX308 Sniper Rifle can be used with any telescopic sight that is fitted to a mount or scope
rings suitable for use with a MIL-STD 1913 rail. The operation of the sight can vary between
manufacturers, but are similar in operation. These notes are based on the use of a Schmidt and
Bender PM II 5-25x56 (0.1mrad) telescopic sight.
Elevation Drum
shooting at
- This drum is used to apply vertical aiming corrections necessary for
different distances and firing angles.
- The 5-25 x 56 scope is fitted with a double turn turret.
- When using the lower scale (0-14mrad) , the scale indicator is black.
- When using the upper scale (14-26mrad), the scale indicator is yellow.
Windage Drum
- This drum is used to make horizontal aiming corrections necessary to
compensate for varying wind conditions. The drum scale is graduated
from 0 to 6 MRAD to the left and from 0 to 6 MRAD to the right.
Parallax Drum
- The parallax adjustment allows the firer to correct any parallax error
between the scope and the eye. It can also be used for basic range
finding. The adjustment on the parallax varies on the scope model.
Reticle Illumination
- The Reticle illumination brightness is adjustable. It is powered by a
single CR2032 (3v) battery, providing a minimum of 100 hours life.
Illumination is switched off automatically after six hours to conserve
battery life.
Magnification Ring
- This ring adjusts the image magnification on the scope. Accuracy
International generally specify sights with reticles in the 1st focal plane to
ensure the graduations remain the same size relative the target
throughout the magnification range. This is particularly useful for
consistent range estimation.
Eyepiece Dioptre
- The eyepiece adjustment allows the firer to achieve a sharp focus with
the sight. To adjust the image focus, set the scope to the highest
magnification then rotate the eyepiece counter-clockwise to its stop.
Rotate the eyepiece clockwise until you see a sharp image of the reticle.
31
AX308 - USER MANUAL
9.1 ZEROING THE TELESCOPIC SIGHT
The following procedure is provided as an example only. The same process can be used on
short distance zeroing ranges as well at 100m+. Always refer to the your sight manufacturer’s
instructions to ensure adjustments are carried out correctly.
SHOOTING AT ANY DISTANCE WITH AN INCORRECTLY ADJUSTED SIGHT
MAY RESULT IN DAMAGE TO PROPERTY, INJURY OR DEATH.

Before zeroing the rifle at an extended distance (100m+), the sight must be initially
adjusted to ensure the point of impact will fall within a safe area of the range backstop /
stop butt at the longer distance. This can be achieved by using a bore sighting device or
by carrying out the procedure described below on a purpose built 25m zeroing range (or
similar) using an appropriate zeroing target. Once these adjustments have been made,
set the elevation and windage drums to zero, again using the method described below.

Once satisfied that the point of impact is predictable enough to fire safely at greater
distances, choose a suitably short range of a known distance to reduce the wind effects
to a minimum, ideally 100m or 200m. Get into a comfortable and stable shooting
position. With the rifle resting in this position, adjust the bipod to get the rifle at the
correct height to point naturally at the target.

Check the sights are reading zero on the windage and elevation sight knobs.

Insert a loaded magazine, close the bolt, place the aiming point of the reticle on the
aiming mark of the target and fire one shot. If this shot falls within the target area, fire
two more shots. If the initial shot falls outside the target area, sandbag or hold the rifle
carefully on the original point of aim and gently rotate the windage drum, without moving
the rifle, until the reticle is vertically in line with the shot hole. Using the elevation drum,
move the reticle up or down until it is positioned over the shot hole (See the Notes
section below)

Aim at the original aiming mark and ideally fire three more shots to form a small group.

Again, sandbag or hold the rifle carefully on the original point of aim and use the sight
knobs to finely adjust the reticle to the centre of the group.

Fire a five shot group and make any final adjustments.

Whilst holding the drums, firmly between the fingers loosen the grub screws (2 ea. per
drum) using a suitable Hex (Allen) key.

Rotate the Elevation and Windage drums to zero. Re-tighten the lock screws. The rifle
is now zeroed at that range.

Ballistic data can now be collected for each ammunition type at set distances. These
records will enable correct elevation settings to be quickly recalled at a later date.
NOTES
If the shot is low, rotate the elevation knob clockwise, (into the “UP” position). If the shot is high,
rotate the elevation knob counter-clockwise. (into the ‘L’ direction).
If the shot is to the left, rotate the windage knob clockwise, (into the “R” direction). If the shot is to
the right, rotate the windage knob counter-clockwise.

12.5 CLEANING & LUBRICATING AFTER FIRING
It is recommended that the barrel be cleaned upon completion of shooting, using the “Cleaning
The Barrel & Chamber” procedure described in the next section.
We recommend, as a minimum, that the barrel should be cleaned at the following intervals:
7.62 x 51mm/.308win
Military Ball Ammunition
Clean after every 100 rounds
Armour Piercing Ammunition
Clean after every 50 rounds
It is also recommend that the bolt body is cleaned and lubricated on a regular basis, i.e. daily
when operational or when 100 rounds have been fired.
37
AX308 - USER MANUAL
12.6 CLEANING THE BARREL & CHAMBER
CAUTION: The suppressor MUST be removed before cleaning
the barrel.
To avoid damaging the muzzle, the cleaning rod or pull-through
must always be inserted from the chamber end.
When cleaning the bore with patches, always work in one direction,
chamber to muzzle.
DO NOT pull used patches back through the bore.
Refer to the Bore Solvent Manufacturer’s instructions for relevant
Health and Safety precautions.
Solvents must be used sparingly; any excess spillage outside of the
barrel must be removed immediately.
Only use the correct size Jag and Phosphor Bronze Brush for the
barrel, for example:
J30 & PB30 for .308
Never use a bore brush in a dry barrel. Always wet the bore with a
patch moistened with bore solvent before using a brush.
Note: The bore and chamber are easier to clean after firing, whilst the barrel is still warm.
Where possible, it is recommended that a cleaning rod and a rod guide should always be used
when cleaning the barrel. Using a rod guide ensures that the cleaning rod is held in the centre of
the bore, which reduces the possibility of damage being caused to the chamber and bore during
cleaning. However, care must still be exercised when using the cleaning rod.
The use of a Pull-Through or Bore Snake is not recommended for routine cleaning. If a pullthrough is to be used, it must be pulled from the chamber to the muzzle and care must be taken
to ensure that the cord is pulled centrally out of the front of the barrel to avoid damaging the
crown. The pull-through or bore snake MUST be cleaned regularly to remove grit and debris that
could damage the bore of the barrel.
If a Pull-Through or Bore Snake has been used, the Barrel should be cleaned using the method
defined in this manual, when possible.

12.7 CLEANING THE BARREL & CHAMBER
Barrel Cleaning Procedure:

Unload the rifle and carry out safety precautions.

Remove the magazine, if fitted.

Securely hold the rifle horizontally by a suitable means, ideally between the protected
jaws of a bench vice, where available.

Fold the stock.

Remove the Bolt.

Remove the Suppressor (if fitted).

Insert the rod guide into the action body ensuring it has engaged with the bolt catch.

Ensure the rod is clean before affixing a clean patch to a jag or the patch holder.

Moisten a patch with Bore Solvent and push it once through the bore (via the rod guide)
and the muzzle to wet the bore.

Remove the soiled patch from the cleaning rod. DO NOT attempt to pull the patch back
through the bore.

Remove the jag or the patch holder from the cleaning rod and refit with a correct sized
phosphor bronze brush.

Whilst the bore is still wet, wet the brush with solvent and pass it completely through the
bore in each direction several times. Repeat with fresh solvent if necessary. Resistance
should be felt when pushing the brush through the barrel. If little resistance is felt the
brush may need to be replaced.
Note: A conservative recommendation for the necessary number of passes is one pass for
every three to four rounds shot.

Refit the jag or patch holder to the cleaning rod and pass through a clean patch to dry
the bore and chamber.

Remove the patch at the muzzle: DO NOT pull it back through the bore.

Repeat this operation until a new solvent-moistened patch can be passed through the
barrel clean (a light grey smudge is acceptable). Once this is achieved, remove any
solvent residue with a clean dry patch.
Note: Where the rifle is to be stored for a lengthy period or when in a corrosive atmosphere,
a thin smear of oil should be left in the bore.

Moisten a patch with CLP 16 oil and pass it once through the bore. (this must be
removed before shooting).
The chamber is to be cleaned using a chamber cleaning brush or a screw-on chamber brush and
one of the cleaning rod sections. Always pass a dry patch through the bore after cleaning the
chamber to remove any debris or cleaning product residue.
Wipe away all surplus solvent from inside the Action Body and from the Muzzle Brake.

AX308 - USER MANUAL
12.8 REMOVING HEAVY COPPER FOULING

Whilst it is not necessary to carry out the following procedure each time the barrel is
cleaned, it should be followed when a high number of rounds has been shot.

Heavy copper fouling may be seen from the muzzle as a copper coloured residue,
carbon fouling will be seen as a black residue between the lands. The heaviest fouling
tends to occur within 12” (300mm) of the chamber.

It is important to remove fouling deposits as it increases the pressure within the barrel
resulting in hard extractions, loss of accuracy and potentially making the rifle unsafe to
use.

For optimal results, it is recommended that a copper solvent and a carbon remover be
used alternately to clean a heavily fouled barrel, (see “Recognized Lubricants & Bore
Solvents” table).

Refer to the Copper/Carbon Solvent Manufacturer’s instructions to determine how the
solvent should be applied to the bore and how long it should be left to penetrate the
fouling.

After the Copper/Carbon Solvent has been left to penetrate the fouling for the
recommended time, insert the rod guide into the action body ensuring it has engaged
with the bolt catch.

Fit the correct sized phosphor bronze brush to the rod and pass through the barrel
several times in each direction. Resistance should be felt when pushing the brush
through the barrel. If little resistance is felt the brush may need to be replaced.

Fit the jag or patch holder to the cleaning rod and pass through a clean patch to dry the
bore and chamber.

Remove the patch at the muzzle: DO NOT pull it back through the bore.

If alternating between carbon and copper solvents, repeat the cleaning procedure again
with the alternative product, leaving it to penetrate the fouling for the recommended
time.

Repeat this operation until a new solvent-moistened patch can be passed through the
barrel clean (a light grey smudge is acceptable). Once this is achieved, remove any
solvent residue with a clean, dry, patch.

Wipe away all surplus solvents from inside the Action Body and from the Muzzle Brake.
Note:
The presence of carbon and copper fouling in the barrel often shows as a coloured
residue on cleaning patches. This colour varies from one cleaning product to the next
e.g. heavy copper fouling may show as blue on the patch, heavy carbon fouling may
show as grey on the patch. Check your specific cleaning product for guidance and
repeat the cleaning procedure above, as necessary, until the patches come out clean.
Note:
It may be necessary to reapply the solvent and repeat this process to completely
remove stubborn deposits.

12.9 GENERAL RIFLE CLEANING
The action body should be brushed clean to remove any brass particles or dirt.
The rest of the rifle should be wiped or brushed down until clean.
Ancillary items such as magazines and bipods should be brushed clean and lightly oiled if
required.
If working in a wet environment or the weapon is to be put into storage, parts should be lightly
oiled using CLP 16 or similar.
12.10 CLEANING THE TACTICAL SUPPRESSOR
It is important that deposits of carbon are removed through the suppressor and muzzle break, as
a build up can make it more difficult to fit and remove the suppressor.

13. BARREL BREAK-IN PROCEDURE
Before a new rifle reaches a customer it has been already shot several rounds. The rifle is first
‘proof’ tested and then tested for function and accuracy by firing at least two five-round groups.
The rifle and barrel are cleaned thoroughly after each of these processes.
If user wishes to continue a barrel break in procedure on the receipt of the new rifle, we would
suggest the following, using standard ball ammunition. The barrel cleaning procedure described
in section 12 of this manual should be followed while carrying out any barrel breaking in
procedure.
Shoot 3 shots and clean
Shoot 5 shots and clean
Shoot 5 shots and clean
Shoot 10 shots and clean
It is important to maintain a good cleaning regime for the life of the rifle.
