- Air Pressure Changes: In higher temperatures, the pressure inside the air reservoir may increase. This could potentially lead to overpressurization, affecting the gun’s performance and safety.
- Seal Wear: Constant exposure to elevated temperatures can accelerate wear on seals and other components. Over time, this wear may result in decreased performance or potential leaks.
- Degradation of Materials: Prolonged exposure to high temperatures can cause degradation of materials used in the air gun, including seals and O-rings. This degradation can lead to a loss of air pressure or even damage to the gun.
To maintain the longevity and optimal performance of your PCP air gun, it’s generally advisable to store it in a cool, dry place and avoid exposing it to extreme temperatures. If you need to transport the gun, consider placing it in a protective case and storing it in the passenger compartment of your vehicle where temperatures are more controlled.
Always refer to the manufacturer’s guidelines and instructions for proper storage and maintenance of your specific PCP air gun model. If you have concerns about the impact of temperature on your air gun, contact the manufacturer for guidance.
