THIS AIRGUN IS RECOMMENDED FOR ADULT USE ONLY. PRECISION
ADULTS AIRGUNS, BECAUSE OF THEIR DESIGN, ARE A SPECIAL CLASS
OF NON-POWDER GUNS. THEY MAY HAVE EXTREMELY SENSITIVE
TRIGGER MECHANISMS, VERY LIGHT TRIGGER PULLS, MAY FIRE IF
DROPPED OR JARRED ABRUPTLY, AND MAY NOT HAVE A TRIGGER
BLOCK OR “SAFETY”. THIS SPECIAL CLASS OF AIRGUNS IS INTENDED
FOR USE BY EXPERIENCED ADULT SHOOTERS WHO UNDERSTAND
THEIR PROPER & SAFE USE. AIRGUNS ARE NOT TOYS.
WARNING: NOT A TOY. THIS AIRGUN IS RECOMMENDED
FOR ADULT USE ONLY. MISUSE OR CARELESS USE MAY RESULT
IN SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH. DANGEROUS WITHIN 600 YARDS
(549 METERS).
WARNING: USE OF INCORRECT PROJECTILES MAY NOT BE
SAFE.
WARNING: PELLETS SHOULD NOT BE REUSED.
WARNING: MODIFICATION OF THE GUN MECHANISM MAY
CAUSE A GUN TO MALFUNCTION AND TAMPERING WITH
A GUN MAY MAKE IT UNSAFE TO USE.
WARNING: DO NOT BRANDISH OR DISPLAY THIS AIRGUN
IN PUBLIC – IT MAY CONFUSE PEOPLE AND MAY BE A CRIME.
POLICE AND OTHERS MAY THINK THIS AIRGUN IS A FIREARM. DO
NOT CHANGE THE COLOURATION AND MARKINGS TO MAKE IT
LOOK LIKE A FIREARM. THAT IS DANGEROUS AND MAY BE A CRIME.
WARNING: ANY CHANGE IN PERFORMANCE, SUCH AS
LOWERED TRIGGER FORCE AND SHORTENED TRIGGER
TRAVEL, INDICATES POSSIBLE WEAR; HAVE YOUR GUN INSPECTED
TO DETERMINE WHETHER IT SHOULD BE PROPERLY REPAIRED OR
REPLACED.
WARNING: REPAIRS SHOULD ONLY BE MADE BY
QUALIFIED PERSONNEL.
WARNING: CHECK ANY GUN THAT HAS BEEN DROPPED
TO ENSURE THAT ITS FUNCTION HAS NOT BEEN AFFECTED.
DANGER
Determine if your airgun has anything in its barrel.
The muzzle end of any airgun is dangerous. Never depend on any safety. All safeties are mechanical
devices and therefore subject to failure. Your airgun should be locked up when not in use. Always
keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction.
Be sure your airgun is unloaded when: crossing a fence, stream, or other barrier, letting go of it for
any reason, putting it away; or allowing another person to handle it; entering a house, vehicle. The
only way to be sure that your airgun is not loaded is to look through the bore or pass an object all the
way through the bore. A projectile or obstruction could be present anywhere in the bore. If your
airgun is a barrell-cocking airgun, simply open the barrel slightly and look down the bore from the
rear. YOU MUST BE ABLE TO SEE ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE BORE TO CONSIDER IT
CLEAR. If your airgun has a fixed breech block arrangement (other than tap loader) that makes it
difficult to look down the barrel directly from the rear, you should use a small mirror or pass a
cleaning rod, that will not harm the bore, all the way through to determine if it is clear.
You should have a proper cleaning rod for the above safety checks and to insure best accuracy. A
cleaning rod may also be used to clear a projectile or other obstruction out of the barrel. Never fire a
projectile to clear a barrel! Such an action will only make the problem worse and may be dangerous.
NOT RECOMMENDED
We do NOT recommend the use of steel darts in any rifle bore. Also not recommeded: plastic
sheathed steel or zinc pellets. Their hard cores can cause dangerous ricochet and peneration
through immedate effect. Their lightness and lack of air resistance may cause excessive piston
impact inside the airgun.
“SLAM SHUT” DAMAGE NOT COVERED
NOTE: DO NOT snap a barrel cocking airgun’s barrel shut excessively hard or allow it to fly
up from an open position. This can cause an upward bent barrel, a cracked or broken stock
and a bent cocking lever. This combination of damage always represent abuse and is not
covered by any warranty, repair policy, or service contract! Snapping such airguns shut may
also cause a discharge. Always point every airgun in a safe direction!
STATEMENT OF NON-LIABILITY
Airguns can cause serious harm, and in some instances, even death and should be handled with great
care! This airgun is manufactured and sold by Remington with the express understanding that we
assume no liability for its resale, handling, use or possession under local laws or regulations.
Personal injury or property damage resulting from either intentional or accidental discharge or for
airgun functions subjected to influences beyond our control, are the sole responsibility of the airgun
owner. We will honor no claims that may result from careless handling, unauthorized adjustments,
defective or improper ammunition, corrosion or neglect.
By accepting the airgun, the buyer agrees to release the seller and Remington, and all associated
persons from liability for any damage to persons or property that may result, for any reason, by using
this airgun. Safety is your responsibility.
The Remington EXPRESS break barrel air rifle is very easy to operate, extremely consistent, and can
provide trouble free use if the following instructions are adhered to. A few minutes spent reading this
manual are essential to safe operation and will increase the many years of pleasure you will derive from
this fine airgun.
BASIC NOMENCLATURE: A typical “barrel-cocking” air rifle is shown here; other types are illustrated
on the next pages and basic internal parts are shown on page 9.
ALWAYS WEAR SHOOTING GLASSES
* WATCH FOR THIS “PINCH POINT”
Cocking your airgun
Your airgun is powered by a powerful spring in
the receiver. Grasp the airgun by the pistol grip or
middle of the forearm (point marked “X” above)
with your right hand (if you are right-handed).
Avoid trigger!
1. For barrel-cocking airguns: with the airgun
pointed upwards, smartly give a slap to the
barrel as far forward as convenient. This will
start the barrel downward to “break” open the
action. You will quickly learn how to do this
easily. It’s a simple “knack.”
2. Now, WITHOUT TOUCHING THE TRIGGER
OR SAFETY, pull the barrel fully down,
completing the cocking action. You will feel it
and when the piston clicks into the cocking
position.
If there is an automatic safety, be sure that it pops
into the “SAFE” position! Do not pull past this
point and never use excessive force or speed. Many
airguns have a built-in device that disconnects the
action of the trigger when the barrel is in this down
and cocked position, some do not.
PROPER USE OF SAFETY
After cocking the airgun, an automatic safety bar
will move out of the action. Push the safety button
firmly in all the way to disengage the safety.
You will immediately be in the firing mode. This
model carries a safety reset lever, see diagram.
WARNING! Pulling the trigger of an airgun when the barrel is not held back and is in the
downward cocked position will result in the barrel snapping up with great force, causing damage
to the airgun, (bent barrel, broken lever and broken or cracked stock) and injury to the shooter.
This is considered abuse and not covered by any warranty, repair policy, and/or service contract.
WARNING! the airguns described here are designated as Match Precision or Adult
Airguns and, as such, are exempt from having as “safety”, may have trigger pulls below 2 lbs.
(900 gms) and may fire when dropped.
These features reflect the more sophisticated
requirements of precision adult airgun shooting.
These special cases of non-powder guns are
intended for use by experienced adult shooters
who understand their proper and safe use.
WARNING: KEEP YOUR HANDS,
and other objects,
AWAY FROM THE TRIGGER
AND SAFETY during all cocking
and loading procedures!
PUSH BAR UP TO
RESET SAFETY
WATCH FOR
*THIS
“PINCH
POINT”
Loading the Airgun
With the barrel in down or open position, while
firmly restraining the barrel with your other hand,
push a pellet into the breech, closed end first, until
the skirt is flush with the face of the breech. If skirt
is not flush, it will be deformed when the airgun
is closed resulting in an inaccurate shot. Check
for this by opening the airgun a little after loading
and checking for pellet damage. Don’t push the
pellet in with the edge of your fingernail. Do not
use damaged pellets, pellets that have been fired
before, darts or unauthorized projectiles.
These can be unsafe and damage your airgun.
Closing the Airgun
Close the airgun by moving the barrel up until it
“clicks” into position. Do this smoothly but not
violently (slamming it shut may cause a discharge
or damage to the airgun). Your airgun is now
ready to shoot. (The safety will have to be released
on models with automatic safeties).
BE SURE THE AIRGUN IS ALWAYS
POINTING AWAY FROM ANY PERSON
OR ANY PART OF YOU!
SPECIAL CAUTIONS!
THE GOLDEN RULE OF AIRGUN HANDLING:
See that the muzzle is ALWAYS pointed in a safe direction!
SPECIAL CAUTIONS!
Precision adult airguns, because of their design, are a special class of non-powder guns and may have
a trigger pull below 2 lbs., may fire if dropped, and may not have a trigger block or “safety”. These
features reflect the more sophisticated needs of precision adult airgun shooting. Such airguns are often
carefully designated to have sensitive trigger mechanisms and trigger pulls which are much lighter
than regular airguns. This special class of airguns is intended for use by experienced adult shooters
who understand their proper and safe use. All shooters and bystanders should always wear protective
glasses during firing.
COCK CAREFULLY
The cocking mechanism of many spring piston airguns may close suddenly if released accidently;
this may injure the shooter, bystanders, and damage the airgun. Avoid excessive cocking force. Cock
smoothly and go easy near the end of the cocking stroke. DO NOT snap the airgun shut!
AVOID TRIGGER WHEN BREECH IS OPEN
Breech may close suddenly if trigger is tripped!
TREAT ALL AIRGUNS AS IF LOADED
Follow safe airgun handling practices. Remember that airguns can be dangerous if mishandled.
NEVER DEPEND ON ANY “SAFETY”
A safety is just a mechanical device and, therefore, could be subject to failure. There is no substitute for
safe airgun handling.
DO NOT LEAVE AIRGUN COCKED OR LOADED
Avoid leaving the mainspring or spring-piston airguns under full compression for extended periods. It
is best to cock just before firing. Always check every airgun to see if it is loaded every time you handle
it. Always assume your airgun is loaded.
USE PROPER PELLETS
Use only high-quality pellets to avoid harmful oils, abrasive material, and air blow-by. Precision adult
airguns are intended for use only with lead pellets; steel shot or darts damage air rifle bores and may
cause dangerous ricochet or rebound. Properly seated pellets should not show rub marks on rear of
skirt if breech is reopened prior to firing. Damaged, used or unauthorized projectiles may be unsafe.
USE ONLY SPECIFIC LUBRICANTS
Mineral oils should be used for the external metal surfaces. Not internally (barrel/action) as this may
cause excessive dieseling. Internally, silicone oil is recommened. DO NOT OVER LUBRICATE!
STORE YOUR AIRGUN IN A SAFE AND PROPER MANNER, SECURE FROM UNAUTHORIZED USE!
WARNING
Airguns are not toys. Misuse or careless use may cause serious injury or death.
THIS AIRGUN IS DESIGNATED FOR USE BY EXPERIENCED ADULT SHOOTERS AND IS
INTENDED FOR MATCH COMPETITION OR TARGET RANGE USE. CARELESS USE MAY
RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.
SPECIAL NOTE: On all cocking types avoid excessive force in opening or
shutting airgun!
ALWAYS keep all airguns pointed in a SAFE DIRECTION AT ALL TIMES
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO UNCOCK YOUR AIRGUN! If you have cocked your air rifle, loaded a pellet
and decided not to take the shot in a reasonable amount of time, do not leave your airgun cocked.
A. If already loaded: Removing the pellet is inadvisable and doing this with a sharp object could
seriously damage the delicate rifling. The best course of action is to shoot the airgun into soft ground,
a pellet trap or thick pile of newspapers or magazines.
B. If unloaded: BE SURE AIRGUN IS UNLOADED. * Then put muzzle tightly against firm, soft pad
(such as padded rug - but NEVER against part of your body), to provide air resistance, and discharge
airgun. Try not to do this often. A better way is to load a pellet and discharge the airgun safely in the
regular way.
*Always check an airgun to see if it is loaded when removed from storage or received from another person. The
ONLY ways to be sure that your barrel is unloaded is too look through the bore from the rear or pass a cleaning rod
through the bore from the rear.
Shooting your airgun safely
First, a word of warning:
NEVER SHOOT A SPRING PISTON AIRGUN
WITHOUT A PELLET!
To do so permits the piston to slam hard aginst
the front of the compression chamber. Repeated
“dry firing” can definitely damage your airgin.
It needs the cushioning action of the air
compressing behind a properly fitting pellet to
work correctly. Also, for this reason, you should
not shoot damaged or previously fired pellets.
Steel BB’s and darts, low quality or irregular
pellets can damage your airgun and should not
be used. Any other unauthorized projectiles are
definitely not recommended.
Shoot your airgun shortly after cocking and
loading. It is not advisable to leave the airgun
cocked for extended periods of time.
Always be sure of your back stop. Be sure that
the entire path of your pellet, even beyond the
target, is safe! Do not shoot at glass or hard
surfaces. Avoid ricochets. It is impossible to
predict where a glancing shot will fall. Remember
a pellet may travel up to about 600 yards (549
meters).
Shooting glasses are a must for all
airgun shooters and spectators.
CAUTION: Inspect back stop for wear before and after each use. Discontinue if surface show signs of
failure of if projectiles rebound or ricochet severely. Since many backstop surfaces eventually fail, always
place a backstop in a location that will be safe.
Sight Picture
What you see when you are aiming at a target is
called the “Sight Picture.” For accurate shooting
this relationship of sights and target must be
correct and above all consistent from shot to shot.
The open sight: The front sight is usually either a
post or a post with a “bead”. The open rear sight
is usually attached just in front of the breech. It
has a “U” or “V” notch. Some airguns give you an
assortment of rear notches. There are three correct
sight pictures.
1 the “6 o’ clock” hold is best for target shooting
since it gives a clear cut reference point. The
post is centered in the rear notch with the top of
the posts level with the top of the notch.
Aperture Sight
Some air rifles are equipped with an aperture
sight (also known as receiver, peep, or diopter
sight). It may be purchased as an option for some
air rifles. This is a very easy sight to use and it
is far more accurate and faster than a open sight
because there is less guess work in its use and
the distance between front and rear sight (“sight
span”) is much greater. To use an aperture sight,
just look through the aperture or “peep”, find the
front sight, and put the front sight on the target.
When looking through the receiver sight try to
Telescopic Sight
This is the simplest and fastest to use of all since
it has magnification and only one plane of focus.
Also many scopes actually gather light or allow
shooting when it would be too dark for iron
sights. Put the crosshairs on your target and
shoot. Adjust as per scope instructions. NOTE: Be
sure that the scope that you put on your airgun is
designed specifically for airgun use.
Maintaining this relationship, place the post
just under the “bullseye” so that the bullseye
appears to be sitting right on top of, or above
the post. The sights are adjusted so the pellets
strike above this point in the center of the
target.
2 The “point of aim” hold is considered the best
for field use. The relationship of front and rear
sights are set so pellets strike exactly where
the sights point at the distance the airgun is
“sighted in.”
3 If your air rifle has a “bead” front sight, this is
the correct sight picture. With a bead front, the
“Point of Aim” hold is best.
ignore the aperture, do not try to “center” the
front sight. The human eye cannot focus on three
objects so far apart. The eye will automatically
seek the strongest source of light coming through
the aperture and this automatically centers the
front sight. If you should install an aperture sight
on an air rifle that has an open sight already on it,
remove the rear sight after lining up the receiver
sight with it (Aperture sights are not suitable for
air pistols ). NOTE: Most air rifles will require
a barrel angle correction before installing an
aperture sight.
Most scope for firearms are parallax adjusted to
50 meters, where as airgun scopes are parallax
adjusted to 10 meters. The scope must be
factory adjusted for correct airgun range or have
a properly set adjustable “Range Focus” dial at
the front end of the scope tube or you will shoot
inaccurately, as much as half-inch off at 25 yards
(12mm at 23m).
The Trigger
The majority of adult spring
piston airguns have what is
known as a “two stage”
trigger. The first “stage” is merely a predetermined
amount of take-up or slack preparatory to the last
or “second stage” which is the let-off or actual
firing stage. This is a European custom and is
designed to aid the shooter to embrace and steady
for the discharge of the rifle.
The trigger pull setting as it comes from the
manufacturer is usually the best for the airgun in
question and should not be lightened. A good
trigger pull for an adult airgun is about 3-6
pounds (1300-2700 gms).
For a match grade adult target airgun about 1.5 oz.
(500 gms) to 2 lbs. (900 gms) is generally
recommended. Most match airguns have the
pull set at the manufacturer for the minimum
International Shooting Union weight (500 gms).
Trigger technique: Assume a normal standing or
rest position, take a correct sight picture.
Now take a normal breath, hold it, and than
squeeze the trigger. Do not jerk or slap the
trigger. There is no substitute for practice.
Happily, with an adult airgun practice is easy and
inexpensive. For details, consult a recommended
book on match shooting techniques.
WARNING! Modifications and/or
tampering with a trigger mechanism
may cause an airgun to malfunction
and become unsafe to use. Any change in the
performance such as lowered trigger force
and shortened trigger travel indicates possible
wear and such airguns should be inspected,
replaced or properly repaired. The trigger may
be adjustable below 2 lbs., (900 gms) and if
adjusted below 2lbs., the airgun could fire even
more easily when dropped. Check any airgun
that has been dropped to make sure its function has not been affected. Repairs should only
be made by technicians. Such special qualified
persons are the ONLY ones who should make
any adjustments which are not externally
available on the fully assembled airgun.
CAUTION: do not use oils or solvents intended for firearms or other devices in the compression
chamber of any spring piston airgun! to do so can cause severe detonation or “dieseling effect,”
resulting in possible damage to airgun and injury to the shooter and/or bystanders.
Only special lubricants specifically designed for spring piston airgun compression chambers should
be used. These are sophisticated silicone oils specially formulated for the purpose. Of the hundreds of
silicone oils available, only a few have the proper flash point, viscosity, lubricity, lack of acids, etc., for
use in the fine quality spring piston airguns. Incorrect lubes can be dangerous. The reason for this is
that during the firing cycle of a spring piston airgun compressed to quite high pressures, resulting in
high temperatures for a fraction of a second. This heat can actually explode any vaporized flammable
oils in the chamber. Very light dieseling is often experienced with a new airgun that has not been
“broken-in”. The manufacturer oils and lubricants can cause minor dieseling. The airgun may make
a loud “crack” and give off some smoke. Usually this stops after a few dozen shots and the airgun
settles down to its normal pressures. Sometimes it may take a tin or two of pellets before the excess
lubricants are cleared. A wisp of mist or smoke after shooting is not cause for alarm and is a sign that
your airgun is getting some vapor lubrication into the barrel, a good thing.
Typical Spring Piston Mechanism
Note: This diagram has been simplified for clarity, the airgun is shown in the cocked position.
In a Gas spring airgun the “mainspring” consists of a sealed unit of compressed gas.
Troubleshooting
NOTE: Spring piston adult airguns have charateristics which are unique. Most “problems” encountered
by new owners are often really not problems at all or are easily corrected. In any case, most experts agree
that the spring piston system is the most trouble free of all airguns power mechanisms.
PROBLEM: POOR ACCURACY/Possible Causes:
1. Dirty bore. Most accuracy complaints are traced to
an unclean bore. Even a barrel which appears to be
clean may be shooting well below its potential. Look
up the bore from the breech (directly or with a small
mirror). If you don’t see shiny clean rifling the bore is
dirty. SOLUTION: Felt cleaning pellets are ideal for
this purpose - and are easy and fast to use. (See bore
cleaning in the basic points section overleaf.)
2. Not Using Special Shooting Techniques. Because
of the relatively long time that pellets remain in the
airgun after the trigger is pulled, as compared to
bullets in a firearm, airguns are much more sensitive
to shooter motion. This is one of the reasons why
airguns are so good for teaching technique to firearm
shooters. Many excellent firearm marksman do NOT
do well with airguns until they have improved
techniques that were not so critical with firearms.
Published accuracy figures were obtained by
AIRGUN experts under ideal conditions. Imperfect
techniques, especially some techniques which are
excellent for firearms, may cause oversize groups.
SOLUTION: Give yourself time to become
accustomed to each airgun. Do not rest barrel on
anything while shooting. Using sandbags or firearms
bench rest methods often will give you very poor
accuracy with airguns. Use loose consistent pressure
and replace airgun to same, position for each shot.
3. Minor dieseling often occurs in new airguns. This
is the burning off of manufacturing oils and greases.
The airgun “cracks” and shots go high or wild due to
higher velocity. SOLUTION: This problem usually
solves itself after a few shots. Some airguns may
require 500 to 1,000 pellets or even internal “super
tune-up”, to be completely “cured”. Over lubrication,
or improper lubrication, is a very common cause of
this and several other airguns problems.
4. Loose stock screws. This is a major cause of
inaccuracy in airguns new or old. One quarter of a
turn may affect accuracy by 2 inches (50mm).
SOLUTION: Tighten front and rear screws very
firmly. If problem recurs, remove screws, degrease
screws and screw holes thoroughly and apply
Loc-Tite 242 sealant.
5. Incorrect or defective pellets: Keep in mind that
each air rifle is unique and it requires some
experimentation on your part to find just exactly the
types of pellets that will work best for each of your
particular airguns. Damaged pellets will not shoot
well and may damage the airgun.
6. Breech seal leak. The breech seal my be defective,
worn from use or damaged due to dieseling. TEST:
Cock and load the airgun. Hold the palm of your
hand about 1/2” (15mm) above the joint between
the breech and receiver. Be very careful not to let this
hand touch the airgun. If there is a seal leak you will
fell a strong blast of air, a slight leak is normal blowoff
of excess pressure in many models. SOLUTION:
Replace seal. A severe leak can cause a piston to slam
into the end of the chamber with eventual piston,
spring and chamber damage. (Don’t disturb even an
ugly, blemished seal if it works well!)
7. Improper pellet seating. Correctly seated pellets
have the pellet skirt flush with, or below, the face of
the breech. In top loading airguns, the pellets often
drop a short distance into the barrel or top – this is
correct. Improper pellet seating may cause the pellet
skirt to become smashed when breech is closed.
SOLUTION: Seat pellets deep enough, carefully
and consistently. Using a Pellet Seat will provide
consistency and increase potential accuracy and
power by smoothing the skirt.
8. Bent or weakened mainspring. Mainsprings can
assume a “set”, become bent, or even break. Metal
fatigue can cause a spring to lose some of it’s
elasticity. Years of use or leaving your airgun cocked
overnight can cause low velocities. If an airgun
becomes hard to cock or velocity decreases this is
a good indication of a broken and/or weakened
mainspring. SOLUTION: Have mainspring replaced
by a technician.
WARNING!
ONLY TECHNICIANS SHOULD
REPAIR THESE GUNS. AIRGUN
SPRINGS ARE UNDER TENSION EVEN
WHEN UNCOCKED AND CAN CAUSE
PERSONAL INJURY WHEN IMPROPERLY
HANDLED.
9. Loose sight. Front and/or rear sight screws or
scope mount screws can work loose. SOLUTION:
Tighten all sight and scope mount screws firmly
with correctly fitting gunsmith screwdrivers. If
problem continues, remove sights or scope mount
and degrease all mating surfaces thoroughly three
times, apply film of Loc-Tite 242 (Use standard,
not industrial Loc-Tite 242) to sight/airgun contact
points and reinstall, tightening screws well.
PROBLEM: AIRGUN DOES NOT SHOOT/
Possible Causes:
1. Shooter Error. Shooter may not be cocking airgun
to full cock. SOLUTION: Bring barrel (or cocking
lever) all the way back until it stops and gradually
increase pressure until a final “click” is felt. DO NOT
force.
2. Broken mainspring. CAUTION: Repairing airguns
should only be attempted by a technician.
Personal injury and/or airgun damage is possible if
this is incorrectly done. NOTE: Repairs and /or
enhancements performed by a non-technician will
void your warranty, service contract and /or repair
policy!
3. Safety in “on” position. Always check safety
before firing trigger. Some airguns have an
automatic safety, in others the safety may have been
manually engaged. SOLUTION: Put safety in “fire”
position manually. Always point airgun in safe
direction before releasing energy.
PROBLEM: ACCIDENTAL DISCHARGE/
Possible Causes:
1. Airgun not fully cocked. Due to hasty cocking.
SOLUTION: Be sure to cock deliberately. Excessive
force is never necessary.
2. Trigger setting too light. This a dangerous
situation. Most commonly due to owner over
“improving” trigger pull. SOLUTION: Increase
trigger pull weight setting.
PROBLEM: PELLET FIT VERY TIGHT/
Possible Causes:
Some airguns are engineered with a tight breech for
maximum performance. Such airguns depend on the
pellet holding still, like a cork, until the air pressure
reaches a critical peak.
PROBLEM: STOCK BREAKS OR CRACKS/
Possible Causes:
This is always caused by dropping the airgun or
allowing the barrel to snap shut to itself (This also
causes cocking levers and barrels to bend!) This is
not covered by repair policy, warranty or service
contract.
Due to variations, between the country of origin and
final area where stock is used, minor drying cracks
(called checks) may appear. They are superficial
blemishes and almost never enlarge. All new airguns
have some small blemishes; those selected for stock
condition have fewer such blemishes, but no stock is
perfect.
WARNING! the airguns described here are designated as Match Precision or Adult
Airguns and, as such, are exempt from having a “safety” may have trigger pulls below 2 lbs. (900
gms) and may fire when dropped.
Important Safety Tips In addition to the instructions and cautions on the preceding pages, we would like to
include a few basic tips for your safe shooting practices. Some points are important enough to repeat!
– Normal operating temperature of piston airguns is approximately 20O to 110OF (-6O to 42OC).
– Always check to see if the airgun is loaded when removed from storage or received from another person!
A pellet may be in the bore without being easily visible! See clearing bore instructions. Never fire, even
unloaded, airguns against any part of your body.
– Never allow anyone, especially youth, to use an airgun loaded or unloaded until they are fully trained in
airgun safety and proper use!
– Treat all airguns as if loaded. Follow safe airgun handling practices. Remember that airguns can be dangerous if mishandled. Precision adult airguns are not toys; they can cause serious injury or even death. For
proper training and information contact your local airgun clubs and/or the National Rifle Association.
– Adjustments and repairs should be made only by technicians. Never use a malfunctioning airgun!
– Store the airgun in safe and proper place, secure from unauthorized use. Locking it up is best.
– Shoot safely: Airgun pellets may travel up to 600 yards (549 meters). Be sure of your backstop. Avoid
ricochets. Do not shoot at hard surfaces. Shooters and bystanders should always wear shooting glasses during
firing. NEVER depend on a “safety”.
Which Pellets To Use?
The all important ingredient to airgun
shooting success:
You need several different kinds.
Airgun pellets, just like firearm ammunition, are
available in a great variety of weights and shapes to
suit particular shooting needs. The following will
help you select the type of pellets that will work best
for you. Keep in mind that each air rifle and air pistol
is an individual and it requires some experimentation
on your part to find just exactly the types of pellets
that will work best for each of your particular airguns.
The quality of the pellets that you shoot in your
airguns will determine the success you have on the
target range or in the field. It is essential to shoot only
high quality pellets in spring-piston airguns. Low
quality or deformed pellets not only result in poor
accuracy but can actually damage these airguns by
allowing compressed air to blow by the pellet and
cause the piston to slam harshly against the forward
end of the compression chamber.
Always use proper pellets. Use only high quality
pellets to avoid harmful oils, abrasive material and
airgun wrenching air blow-by. Precision adult airguns
are intended for use only with precision airgun
pellets; steel shot or darts are not recommended and
generally damage rifled bores and may cause
dangerous ricochet or rebound. Properly seated
pellets should not show rub marks on rear of skirt
when breech is reopened prior to firing. Damaged,
used, or unauthorized projectiles may be unsafe.
BASIC POINTS:
The COMPRESSION CHAMBER is that portion of the receiver where the actual air compression takes place
when the piston moves forward in shooting, since the air is heated to as high as 2,000°F for a fraction of a
second upon firing, excessive lubrication will cause dieseling (detonation) that can possible damage the airgun
and injure the shooter. Lubrication should be performed by technicians during regular service intervals.
MAINSPRINGS are the storehouses of the energy the shooter provides by cocking the airgun, and need to
expand smoothly with as little friction and vibration as possible. The mainspring is housed in the spring
cylinder, which is a polished cylinder containing the piston, the mainspring, and the spring guide shaft. All
metal mainsprings eventually have some cant; therefore, the polish and lubrication of all surfaces here is critical
for maximum performance. Recoilless airguns receiving extensive use in competition should be serviced once a
year by technicians.
COCKING LEVER LINKAGES receive considerable pressure; proper lubrication insures smooth operation
and minimum wear. Moly is also useful in such areas as the sliding parts.
BARREL PIVOT POINTS and detents benefit from lubrication. Remember, do not over lube, and keep low
flash point oils away from air vent and breech seal.
TRIGGER MECHANISMS in spring-piston airguns vary from the simple two moving parts of economy
models to the beautifully engineered complexity of Feinwerkbau. Do not attempt to lubricate triggers on the
sophisticated recoilless airguns. Triggers and sears on less expensive rifles and pistols benefit from very sparing
application of Metal-2-Metal paste.
Front and rear STOCK SCREWS must be firmly tightened and checked before each use of your air rifle. If
loosening occurs, remove stock screws, degrease stock screws and stock screw holes thoroughly; then sparingly
apply Loc-Tite 242 (blue) sealant, and tighten firmly.
BORE CLEANING. Since airguns do not use powder or primers, cleaning is not necessary to prevent most
rust; however, it is essential to good accuracy. Use MP-5 oil. Accuracy suffers badly due to caked grease residues
blown into the bore from the compression chamber and from leading. Most accuracy complaints are the result
of dirty bores-even though they may look clean! For storage, clean the bore and leave it with a light coating of
MP-5 polarizing oil 9205. After cleaning with MP-5 oil ( do NOT use regular firearm bored cleaners as they will
damage seals and cause dieseling), follow with dry patches until no trace of oil is seen. A few regular pellets
will have to be shot through a cleaned barrel before it can be expected to return to its “zero”.
EXTERIOR SURFACE should be regularly wiped with a silicone cloth 9400 to maintain the quality of the
finish. Before airguns are stored, they should be given a good wiping with a very high-grade polarizing oil such
as MP-5.
USE PROPER PELLETS! Use only high quality pellets to avoid harmful oils, abrasive material and airgun
barrel damage. Precision adult airguns are intended for use only with lead pellets. Steel shot or darts damage
air rifle bores. Properly seated pellets should not show rub marks on rear of skirt if breech is reopened prior to
firing. Damaged, used or unauthorized projectiles may cause dangerous ricochet, excessive piston impact and
excessive penetration.
ACCURACY TESTING. The accuracy of the airgun will only become consistant once barrel and cylinder are
fully bedded in. This usually takes approximately 1000 - 1500 shots, this applies to open sights or being used
with telescopic sights. High consistant accuracy can only be achieved if the rifle is correctly zeroed in with an
appropriate scope and mount system and shot from a bench rested position.
