PCP needs cleaning

i have a Benjamin Discovery PCP airgun that has been a ton of fun to shoot but the accuracy has gone downhill. i need to give the barrel a good scrubbing. does anyone have experience with this? I cant find the manual that tells how to disassemble the thing for cleaning the barrel. Any help would be greatly appreciated. AJ

Check out Ted's HoldOver this guy is great on Pcp's. Otherwise check out airgun acadmy on youtube I think they show you how to clean a pcp. The benjamin maruder makes me drool. For the price I'll stick with my old benjamin 22 pump. Youtube has to have a dismantle video on a benjamin disco.

I have a maurader and when I clean it I remove bbl shroud. Then use trout line and a jag to pull through the brech. Rember most air rifle bbl are softer than powder burner bbls.

How do you guys fill? Hand pumps or scub tank? I hear alot about hand pumps going to crap after a couple of fills.

I have only got the hand pump, but it has worked great for me. Not very hard to pump up to full power. It has been a blast to shoot, and deadly accurate. Great value for the price. AJ

Check out "Gateway To Airguns" for all of your air gun questions. Lots of helpful and knowledgeable air gunners over there.
