If this does not work then the VFG cleaning rods are designed for match air guns. They do a plastic rod with a brass end to attach the cleaning felt to.
But if the pistol has only ever been used with decent flat head pellets I suspect that is will not need cleaning. At 10m ranges it won't make the difference it can to the groups on say a 12ft/lb air rifle used at 55 yards.

Don't use the cheapest -rubbish- you can find - you don't want any bits of fibre detatching and getting into places they shouldn't. Buy decent cleaning pellets - they are cheap enough.
As a tip, you can fire the pellets into a soft towel so you can recover the pellet to see how dirty it is. If it is very soiled, put another one through. If not, then stop.
Also, I have heard some people put a normal pellet in backwards in the belief that the skirt will act as a scraper cleaning the barrel - no idea if it works or not.
Personally I'd avoid using a cleaning rod - you are pushing dirt down into the action area where the seals are. A pull through would be better if you don't want to use cleaning pellets.
