Airsoft guns can be subject to build ups of dust, dirt, mud and other contaminants which have detrimental effects to their power and performance and, in some cases, can cause them to misfire.
They also require cleaning not only after extended periods of use, but also upon initial purchase too.
Removing dirt and moisture from your gun is vital to perform at your best. Regular cleaning ensures the BBs can move freely along the barrel with minimal friction which allows for optimised accuracy and power, therefore leading to more shots hitting the target.
To solve this issue, Abbey Supply has developed a new, easy to use product: Airsoft Cleaning Wipes.
These are paper wipes, with a silicone formula which can easily be inserted deep into the barrel of your gun to provide a thorough clean.
The design of the wipes makes them extremely compact, lightweight and portable, meaning they can be used during a game with minimal effort.
Silicone is an ideal compound for gun cleaning applications due to its hydrophobic, inert and self-healing properties and is used in many Abbey products.
Advantages of Silicone Wipes
Being water repellent, silicone has very distinct advantages over typical mineral oil solutions:
- Quick and easy removal of moisture and other contaminants
- No sticky residue being left behind
- Prevents future build ups from occurring
- Maintains the performance of your weapon for longer
How to Use the Wipes
Place one of the wipes into your cleaning rod and then insert into the barrel of the gun whilst using a twisting motion.
Twisting the rod will ensure the wipes are able to apply silicone to the entire inside of the barrel.
Stop once you have reached the hop-up mechanism at the end of your barrel as touching this may cause damage if too much pressure is applied.
Once you reach the hop-up, remove the cleaning rod slowly and dispose of the wipe.
