Do You Need To Oil Your Air Rifle?

Do You Need To Oil Your Air Rifle?

The short answer is yes, to maintain your air rifle and prevent rust, it’s important to oil the exterior metal parts.

So before storing your rifle, apply a light coating of three-in-one oil to the metal surfaces to protect against moisture and corrosion.

It’s crucial, however, not to oil the barrel as this can damage your gun.

For moving parts, follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully. Oiling these components incorrectly can also lead to damage.
