AIR MATCH 600
<Back to ‘shooting stuff’
· No CO2 or compressed air needed (Yippee!).
· Dry-fire mode available.
· That flimsy front sight is easily broken
· Blood blisters – usually not a problem after your second session with an Air Match 500/600: you learn to keep the fleshy part of the left hand out of the way when closing the action.
· No longer in production: if you need any parts…
AIR MATCH 600 MAINTENANCE
Could not be simpler:
1. Fire a felt cleaning wad through the barrel after each shooting session.
2. Wipe outside of pistol with an oily rag, then wipe with a dry cloth.
Cleaning the breech/loading area:
Fluff and crud builds up in this area and its awkward to clean under the barrel protrusion:
1. isopropyl alcohol, cotton tips
2. pistol to dry-fire mode
3. open action fully
4. liberally apply isopropyl alcohol and clean/scrub area using cotton tips.
5. Blow dry with compressed air.
TROUBLESHOOTING THE AIR MATCH 600
1. SECURE storage for the loaded pistol, chronograph
2. Load and chronograph a shot
3. Load and place loaded pistol in SECURE storage for 10-12 hours
4. After 10 to 12 hours, chronograph shot
5. If ‘stored’ shot is within 10% of the ‘fresh’ shot, you will have no problem with pressure loss during a competition. If the difference is more than 20%, the pistol needs servicing.
