    Cleaning the Barrel

  1. 1

    Attach a small cotton cleaning patch to the tip of an air gun cleaning rod.

  2. 2

    Place a few drops of air gun oil onto the patch.

  3. 3

    Insert the patch into the top of the barrel and run the patch down the length of the barrel several times.

  4. 4

    Run a second patch with no oil down the barrel several times to remove oil residue.

    Oiling the Air Chamber

  1. 1

    Hold the pistol in an upright and uncocked position.

  2. 2

    Place a few drops of air gun oil directly into the top of the barrel.

  3. 3

    Leave the pistol in an upright position for at least one hour to allow the oil to reach the internal parts at the base of the barrel.

Tips and warnings

  • The user's manual warns that extensive use of the Marksman pistol will result in loss of power, and the unit should be returned to the manufacturer for professional service.
  • Always check that the pistol is unloaded prior to cleaning.
  • Use only synthetic oil, as conventional oil can burn components when fired.
