Breakin rounds needed
« on: February 10, 2019, 02:07:40 PM »
How many rounds need to shot thru pistol to get it good and broke in?
I fired 50 rds thru gun with a glitch before I ran out of ammo.  Will shoot another 50 to 100 to break in gun.  I hope that is enough.  I enjoy the gun but don't like the plastic trigger as soon as a replacement is available I will change it out.

I think they call for 200 rounds.  That is the number some makers use.

I'm right at 200 now, and she's smoothed out considerably.  Seems like Remington saud 500 though.

I'm only at 50 but will try to get another 100 in this weekend.  The slide open lock with just 7 rounds in the magazine works real well. So that is what I will use until I get to at least 200 rounds  before I try one in chamber and 7 in magazine.

I'm at 200, and mine still won't charge from a full mag and the slide closed.

Your follower legs need to be trimmed. I took about 1/16" off mine and that fixed the problem.
