thanks for the awesome advice, i have a .22 rifle which fires at approx 850 fps and the guy at store said another customer said he used to soak his pellets overnight in diesel.i see now from what youve said that this cant be a safe practice
Air rifles that fire lead ammo are self lubricating, after the first 1500 shots or so, a thin layer of lead will coat the barrel, allowing pellets to slip through the barrel easier. Napier pellet lube is just engine flush for cars, packaged in tiny bottles and charged the same amount as for a whole bottle of engine flush. Do not use any products of any kind to.lube pellets, not even vegetable based oils, I'm sure you've seen what happens when a frying pan gets too hot. Plus, any kind of look on a pellet is going to get blown back through the transfer port, creating the conditions for detonation inside the cylinder, not a good idea. If you want your airgun to shoot faster, tune it, upgrade the spring and piston, and use light grain pellets. The only "lube" needed for air rifles is on moving mechanical.parts, for that you should use lithium or moly grease, but very sparingly. Although it won't detonate, it will catch dust, fluff etc, and gunk up the mechanicals. - RhysH10
The goal of this is not to lubricate the gun. It is to produce a detonation. This is a very easy (if damaging) way to increase pellet velocity as needed, while enabling you to keep sub-sonic velocity most of the time. As I'm sure you know, as you are evidently very smart, pellets travelling supersonic speeds are rather unstable. Thus supersonic airguns are quite inaccurate. The ability to raise speed to supersonic for a single shot (say, for vermin hunting) is useful. A full tuneup and spring replacement is a permanent change, and limits the range of capabilities.I would never do this on a several-hundred-dollar gun. That would be a terrible idea. It's a fun trick for a low-end rig like the Beeman RS2, though.It's also worth noting that 1) most powerful airguns get a fair fraction of their power from dieseling (this was tested by comparing when charged with nitrogen vs air). 2) Light pellets can be just as bad for the gun as dieseling, and even less stable and 3) A spring replacement or gun-tuning requires a fair bit of skill, time, money and commitment. This is often impractical, especially if you only want supersonic velocities for a short time. - AlexisL18

How to supercharge air gun with things in you can find in your local pantry
diesel fuel or if u want to get all crazy buy a little nitro fuel for gas rc cars. Stuff explodes under pressure like diesel
wow wow YOU R GENIUS LET ME SEE YES EXACTLY YES lets make real one
Awesome! love the spiked collar! have you made anything lately?
Hehe thanks. I've gotten better. The photo is a year old. Updating it now.
Awesome and youre hot af
does this work on a black ops (1,200fps)
But a firecracker can blow your hand off if you hold it in your hand right? That's probably what he means.
