Many airgunners realise the benefits of ‘lubing’ pellets as it not only helps them perform to their optimum level of efficiency when travelling up the barrel but also prevents them from oxidising should you irregularly leave the lid off your pellets or while they are in a pellet pouch. Power Pellet lube is available in a 25ml Pump Aerosol that helps you distribute the lube ‘evenly’ over ammo.

See-through scope mounts allow a scope to be fitted but with access to the iron sights giving the best of both worlds. Manufactured from aircraft grade aluminium the HST46C 2-Piece Mounts from Sportsmatch UK have an elongated section machined out of their bases so you can look under the scope and clearly sight in on the target using the rifle’s ‘irons.’ However they only cater for scopes with 40mm objective lens housings as anything larger obscures your view.

The Cylinder Carrying Strap uses two adjustable heavy-duty straps connected and coupled by a rubber carry handle. They wrap around the bottle and come back on themselves where you can draw them tight to the cylinder using buckle fasteners, to further add security the entire outer length has double sided Velcro. They are rubber-lined to aid grip and prevent slip - suitable for 3 – 15-litre bottles.

The top cradle on the front ring has a 30mm Weaver/ Picatinny rail for lights or lasers.
