Is there any way to help break a glock in without shooting? Just hoping to need less rounds to get it done. Maybe just rack slide a bunch while watching tv?

All Day I Dream About Sigs
Getting a G36. Don't worry. I will be shooting it real quick. After getting some Ranger Talon ammo, I'm a little short on range ammo. Want to run a few boxes of federal first, before testing it the carry stuff out.
Looks like I have to chose but to shoot through my 4 boxes of federal on Wednesday. Oh well, could be worse.
Yeah I guess it would be a little more expensive then shooting my G26.
I put fifty rounds through it today........10 bucks.
I get a box for 15 at walmart. Not bad I think. Figured only route is to shoot it. Didn't know if working the slide helps loosen anything up at all. Doesn't hurt to ask.
I pick up a spare mag today. figured can use it as a range mag, and save the others for carry after i run them a bit to make sure they are cool.
At least that and the kholster I bought get a few purchases out of the way.
So far as I'm aware, there are not many choices for non-shooting "wear" steps that can be performed:
- Racking the slide up to 1000 times -- This weakens and smooths the recoil spring a bit, and wears the slide rails a bit.
- Dry firing -- This aids in training the trigger finger and hand to isolate the movements, and it wears the trigger springs and friction elements a bit (thereby reducing some of the grittiness and stiffness that might exist when new).
- Polishing of the feed path and chamber throat -- Can smooth up the cycling of rounds, but caution should be paid to avoid removing the wrong metal from the areas. Know what you're doing, here, if you're going to attempt this on a certain gun.
Other than that, I don't know what you can do outside of shooting the gun.
Look at the bright side. If you go find the dirtiest, ugliest, crappiest reload ammo from 30yrs ago, you'll be fairly sure that your gun will be more tolerant of bad ammo than you otherwise would have been. This might be something you could add to a regimen of dry-firing and slide cycling to avoid the higher prices of most ammo right now.
Just buy some cheap ammo and go to the range.

Take it to your favorite indoor range and tell them they can use it as a rental gun. Pick it up in about a week or so and it will be in "Fair Condition" ready for machine washing.

I would just do whatever the manual says to do for break in, that is, if there is a break in period for that one. Not too long ago I bought a Kimber Ultra CDP II and it just said to put 400-500 rounds of factory ball ammo through it, field strip and clean every 100 rounds and there you have it. Some people have had problems with Kimbers I've heard but following the manual, I've yet to have a single issue. Thing is, if you've done what the factory has said to do and something goes wrong, then you know that it's the product and not something that you've done or didn't do correctly.
