    Default barrel cleaning

    What do you guys clean your barrels with? I've read a variety of things when I was trying to find what to clean my barrel with. Some people say silicone oil but some people say to never use it since it can collect dust. Other people say using just water is good enough. So I'm curious which is the best thing to use to clean your barrel.

    You shouldn't use silicone because when it gets on the hop up rubber, the rubber looses grip on the bb. Since the spin of the bb by and large dictates range and accuracy, and the slick rubber doesn't grip as well, your range and accuracy can be affected.

    I use strips of cotton rifle cleaning swatches, and rubbing alcohol. The alcohol does a good job of cleaning the barrel and breaking dirt, etc off, and if it gets on the hop up bucking, it isn't a big deal since it evaporates. .

    Never use oil.

    And with that...anything with alcohol is fine. Windex is fine, isopropyl is fine.

    Even soap and water, but you must dry it afterwards.
