I'm not sure how must I clean the barrel (AIR RIFLE)
I think is very important for accuracy, but I don't want to damage the compensator or regulator with clean pellets.
What's your experience? Any Advice?
Thx

Does your air rifle barrel require cleaning? There is some debate on this
issue. There are those who say it should be cleaned every time, and those
who say never to clean an airgun barrel. Airguns don’t generate any real
heat, nor do they have burned powder residue to dirty a bore like firearms.
As long as you are using good quality match pellets from RWS, H&N, Vogel
or JSB then cleaning is of little benefit. If you do decide to clean your airgun
barrel, I recommend pushing some doubled-up monofilament fishing line
up through the barrel and pulling a cleaning batch through the barrel. A
barrel that has been cleaned should have 15-20 fouling shots put through it
before the start of a match, as a totally clean barrel will shoot to a different
point of impact than one with a normal amount of pellet wax on the lands
and grooves.
