Howdy !I was shooting in my 11-yard garage range today, sighting in my scope and firing into my steel bullet trap. (Of course, my hits will be way low in my backyard 50-yard range, requiring re-sighting.) I put about 20 rounds through my new Browning Leverage, alternating shots with turning the elevation and windage dials on my 3X9-40mm AO scope. I ended up with 1" groups at that distance, which satisfied me for the first time out with the new gun, and the first time I fired any airgun in 7 years!However, every time I cocked the rifle for a new shot, when the piston slid back from the breech, a very thin wisp of vapor came out from the barrel.Could this be from the residual oil the manufacturer left in the barrel? I don't think its "dieseling", but maybe just a thin film of oil vaporizing from the heat of the compressed air?What do you think?HAL (The old-timer who's getting back into this after 7 years)
thats a sweet lil scoot! I wish i could keep my bike, im having my first kid soon and my wife does NOT want me having my sportbike anymore. Shes deathly afraid of me riding out here in socal, and tearing up the canyons, palomar Mt, ortega hwy. *SIGH* Its a heavily modified kawasaki ZX9-R. The Muscle bike of the early 2000's, my first love. =( oh well. lol. PS, you can get a .22 cal bore snake from walmart for like $8 and just wash it when it gets dirty. heh, and if you have an internal barrel/bore oring, use a set of pliers to pluck out the brass brush bristles so it dont tear up the inside barrel oring. good luck man. and keep the greasy side down on your mutter-sick'L!
