Airsoft Sniper Rifle Maintenance

"Airsoft sniper rifle needs good care", I guess we can all agree on this. Opposite to AEG combat rifles, which often used with wider inner barrels to prevent bb stuck as they shoot around 800 rounds per minute, sniper rifles come along with tight bore barrels, going down to even 6.01 mm calibre. Such a barrel can help with power output and accuracy, but is much more sensitive to any kind of over greasing or dirt and dust on the inside layer.

Many guns come from the manufacturer in bad shape in terms of internal over greasing and dirt. Nothing that could not be solved with silk cloth and cleaning rod. Problems start when the gun does not work properly after overall cleaning process. Many manufacturers declare in their terms of warranty, that any interference with the guns original state can lead to the actual warranty annulment. Being responsible and doing some research on disassembly process (manufacturers info should be the first step) is priority, as any incompetent handling with the gun can lead to permanent damage and cancelled warranty means no refund, right? If you aren't sure of how to handle the disassembly and cleaning process, always use specialized services.

My own Well L96 airsoft sniper rifle came in pretty rough state. Lube was everywhere, but most importantly the hop up unit was dead. As I bought the gun in an eshop, I did not really want to send the package back and wait for new shipment. And I did not even know what was causing the bad accuracy problem at first. At the end of the day, duct tape can fix anything :D So my hop works properly now, but I have to check it time by time if everything works fine.

Here we get to the part where the actual maintenance thing begins. I personally prefer complete disassembly and cleaning after every fight. The gun often gets through insane conditions and there is also dust and dirt. As I own the spring version, the disassembly is pretty simple. I would definetly not recommend digging into mechabox in AEG sniper rifles as those are pretty complex mechanisms and the internals are not exposed to the outside influences. Somehow the internals of the cylinder get always dirty and the lube turns black not even on the outside. Also most of the greasing leaks down through the cocking pin and gets into the trigger mechanism. So to sum it up, I would recommend do those steps after each action:

1. cleaning the inner barrel with silk cloth, cleaning rod and silicon grease

2. cleaning the guns externals and internals from dirty greasing and dust to prevent loading mechanism and bolt action mechanism malfunction

3. fixating all the screws with any kind of silicon or glue

If you maintain your airsoft sniper rifle regulary, It won't ever let you down!

Yeah but the problem with some airsoft sniper rifles like the WELL l96 AWP is that some people say that after around 4000 rounds the gun breaks and I really want to get this gun and I've seen many reviews and I love it but I want to know if that can be fixed... Or do you have to buy a whole new gun all over? And if it can be fixed what are the parts most likely to have to get replaced? And will it be worth fixing?

Oh well, there are several things that can break. First thing to die will most likely be the stock piston, the piston catch in the trigger mechanism or something similar. 4000 rounds sounds like forever to me :D as I rarely shoot more than 3 magazines per one all day action... But any stock parts cost almost nothing and you will most likely upgrade all those parts 3x before anything actually breaks :D If you worry about costs of new parts, all I can say is that upgrading all the internals + some extra stuff like silencer etc does not cost more than the gun itself, so if you just want to keep it running in stock performance, occasional repairs cost almost nothing. If you dont mess around too much with the spring power, you won't have to repair anything in a loong time. I would definitely go for Well L96, because Ive seen other guns from this price level and nothing looks so solid...
