Don't polish or over-clean the brass on this gun. It's a brass plating and has a clear coat on it. Once it's "worn through" it will tarnish quickly. No need to shoot heavy loads out of the gun. I shoot 400g bullets at around 1300-1450fps and still haven't recovered a single bullet from a deer. You can shoot 300g at the same speeds and not beat yourself up.
Thanks for that.

Looking at the receiver--looks like solid machined brass to me--but I'm not sure.
I screw things up--so you don't have to.
I am NOT an expert--I do not have any formal experience or certification in firearms use or testing; use any information I post at your own risk!
