Cleaning the lead or copper from barrel of TX22
I bought a TX22 the other day and went to the range to shoot it yesterday. I shot around 250 rounds of CCI .22LR ammo during the time I was there. I had to adjust the sights to get it dialed in and began to fire at metal targets. The more I shot it the more I started missing the metal discs I was shooting at and I finally had to lay it down to let it cool off. I wasn't rapid fire shooting it, just a normal rate of fire. I would lay it down and reload my magazines slowly and begin to fire again. Well I looked at the end of the barrel and there were pieces of what looked like lead in the end of the barrel. I packed up all my stuff and came home. I attempted to run .22 cal bore brush down the barrel to clean the barrel and it went in about an inch and wouldn't go any further. I had to tap the rod and brush through the barrel with a rubber hammer to get it out. I had to do this 3 times before I could finally do it by hand. I still don't know if I got all of the lead or copper out of the barrel. Anybody else have this problem?
