    At some point you are going to start wearing out parts, and needing to replace them (like recoil springs), and then you need to test that for reliability too.

    It is important to test your gun and your magazines. If your gun comes with 1 magazine, and you do all the break in with that one magazine, then go buy a few spares to carry without testing them, you are doing a dis-service to yourself.
