HW57 barrel cleaning
I have a new HW57 with the pop up breech. I would like to clean the barrel prior to shooting. I'm looking for ideas regarding the the best method as the breech end is in effect permanently closed. Any ideas are appreciated
If i owned one of these, i would remove the pop up breech and either pull fish line and a patch thru the barrel or push cleaning pellets with a wooden dowel down the barrel.
I looked at the illustrated parts breakdown. All i see holding the pop up breech is a o ring at the base.
1) Without removing tge stock you have to Remove the rubber o-ring from the loading tap, Easy to do with a finger or Dental Pick.
2) When the o-ring is removed, you can now push the tap out of the action, this will allow you to use a pull-through Crown Saver, insert it from the muzzle out through breech. It's a little tight, but it's easy to do.
