Now I can clean after every tin and usually only takes 4 patches.
As stated previously I think it has something to do with the internal plating which comes off, until this has been removed, the regime is painfully boring.
I agree this is almost exactly my finding, I am still on 8-12 pull throughs after 2,500 pellets, but it is worth doing.
F1 needs care and attention, I see this gun in that light.
Conor I hope it does improve after 5,000 that would be a bonus
