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.
2. Trigger position
3. Trigger weight
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.
