New Handgun Break-In Periods ????
On this forum, and others, I often read of the supposed need for 200 round + break-in periods for new handguns. I find that outrageous, and disappointing.
In my opinion, a new handgun should be 100% reliable right out of the box.
If well machined, well designed, and properly lubricated, it should work from the GIT-GO! One should be able to fire one or two magazines through a new handgun, WITH NO FTF's or FTE's, and then be very confident in its ability to protect oneself and one's family.
I suggest that gun publications, and the posters here, always report ANY FTF's with a brand new handgun.
If I ever purchased a new handgun that had a FTF or FTE in the first 20 rounds, I would immediately ship it back to the manufacturer. (I"ve never had to do so....)
