How to Clean the Barrel of an AEG Airsoft Gun | Tech Talk | Fox Airsoft



Since the game of airsoft (at it’s most basic level) is just shooting plastic bbs, you want to do all that you can to preserve seal that is made between your BBs and your barrel. Keeping a clean barrel is a great way to do just that.

Kent goes over a how to clean your barrel to keep those BBs moving smoothly and at the most efficient distance to keep the wear and tear on the rest of your gun at the absolute minimum.

Here’s a few steps to clean your barrel:

Before you do any work on any airsoft gun it is important to

1. Turn the hop-up off. This is to pull your bucking rod out of the barrel and allow your cleaning rod to get all the way down the barrel and prevent your cleaning rod from getting jammed in the hop up unit.

2. Use 100% silicone oil to wet your barrel patches or a swatch of paper towel. You must use 100% PURE SILICONE because anything with petroleum distillates will damage the plastic parts in your hop-up.

3. You will also need an airsoft barrel cleaning rod which normally comes with your gun in the box. If not, we sell them here at Fox Airsoft: http://www.foxairsoft.com/accessories/cleaning-and-maintenance/aeg-inner-barrel-cleaning-rod/

4. Thread the barrel patch or Paper towel and thread it through the eye end of the cleaning rod.

5. Apply 2-4 drops of 100% silicone oil onto the cleaning cloth. We cannot stress the importance of 100% PURE SILICONE because anything with petroleum distillates will damage the plastic parts in your hop-up.

6. Insert it down the muzzle and slowly twist to clean and to help the cloth compress into the barrel. Do this in directions.

7. Repeat this process with a new barrel patch until the cloth comes out completely clean.

8. Run 2 dry patches down the barrel once your barrel is clean.

That’s all there is to keeping your barrel in top running condition.
