The air rifle i have is a Gamo Hunter Sport .177 It's accuracy is absolutely terrible. I realized that i had put lubrication oil in the barrel and was wondering if that might be the reason, and wanted to know if there is anything else i might be able to do to make it more accurate. thank you

The first thing to do is clean the barrel, yes, oil in the barrel will cause accuracy to suffer. Next is get as good a pellet as you can and the flat tipped waisted, kind are the best for accuracy. See picture below --->>>> the air rifle i have - 216ef8c.jpg Next is to lube the pump or mechanism to get as consistent a pump as you can.

Once the oil burns off and leaves the barrel, try diff pellets as they do make a world of difference. i have a gamo shadow and use promatch. there are some better and more expensive ones but i have no issues hitting a 50c coin from 50m away. breathing, posture, your steadiness and your familarity to the trigger breakpoint all affect your accuracy.

What is the best lubricant for keeping the rifled barrel clean and how often should it be lubricated?


Oil in the barrel an air gun can lead to bad things, If you are worried about corrosion, lube with light oil then remove as much as possible with a dry swab. It doesn't take much to provide corrosion protection. I rarely clean or lube my air rifles, maybe 2 times/year or every 1,000 shots. It really is not necessary unless your accuracy deteriorates.

Here is an excellent article dealing with this issue:

The magnification adjustment ring on my Gamo Whisper worked fine at first, then was stuck between 3X and 5X. Now it is free again but the scope is not focused on the 3X and 9X settings, but is clear on 5X...


I'm not familiar with the scope, is it an air rifle scope? One stroke type? If not, the backwards recoil of the air rifle is tough on a normal scope, they aren't made for that type of abuse. They work fine with a normal recoil. That is why they started making air rifle scopes. I'm sure that the internals of your scope are damaged somewhat, you can take off the eyepiece no problem, you might find something in there, loose screw, missing screw, you never know, don't get too carried away with the dis-assembly, you'll never get it back together. It sounds like the magnification ring is messing with the focus of the eyepiece. Might just need some oil. Hope this helps.

Air rifle?


Most rifles will hit whithin at least one inch across a normal back yard. You're quality is going to come from the manufacturer. CO2 and Air Pump is a personal choice, I have noticed no difference in performance, though some say CO2 is more reliable. Daisy is a classic manufacturer and has some modern, good weighted rifles that will shoot dependably. Anything with a Walther barrel or the Walther name is a good investment when it comes to rifles (not so much for pistols). Break barrel actions are prone to jam, be difficult to open once lead shavings build up, and pinch nastilly, and if you have a child or are a novice shooter yourself, a traditional action will help you learn proper habits early on. You really shouldnt spend 300$ for an Air Rifle, or even 200...Maybe even 100.
