New Glock 23 - Do I need to "break-in" the barrel

  1. I heard a guy talking the other day about breaking in a new glock barrel. He said something about CLP in the bore after every shot for the first ten shots. Has anyone else ever heard of this?

  2. No, no, no, no, no. Just run a clean patch through the barrel and fire away. It needs no breaking in.
  3. What he is talking about is a method used to break in rifle barrels.

    Here's a method from the Savage web site:


    There is a lot of disagreement if rifles even need such a break in procedure. Several custom barrel makers say it is not necessary.

    I really don't think it is needed for pistol barrels.
  4. Yes it needs breaking in. Swab the new barrel with a patch and then shoot the **** out of it.
  5. I don't know much about anything but imo whether it's a long gun or handgun, if it's a quality barrel and after initial cleaning, it needs no break in.
  6. i break in pistol barrels by shooting 500 rds

    this is more to wear in the rest of the pistol so that it fits together better lol
