Response to Why does Crosman use brass barrel on 39x?

mirror bores after decades of use. Many times the stock is rotted, the pivots shot, and the seals toast after decades as a heavily used barn gun, but a rebuild and new wood will yield a gun more accurate than a brand new one.

Lead on brass is a low friction combination, and brass is easier to rifle than steel, so the slight difference in cost is more than compensated for, even without considering the corrosion resistance advantage.

Short of abuse, a brass bore will last as long as a steel one under airgun conditions.
