    So I ordered a parts kit like 3 months ago and it's finally going to ship this week.:x: I've heard of people breaking in their ARs by running a rod through the barrel after every round for the first 30 rounds. But is that really necessary? Supposedly it improves accuracy over the life of the rifle but that sounds like BS to me. It would't be that big of a deal to do but I really want to drain a couple 30s right after I get it built. :naughty:

    What does WMD think?

    Unless it's a match grade rifle, cleaning it after every round isn't necessary.

    Just make sure its properly lubed, run a mag through it, clean it, then shoot the shit out of it.

    Nope it's just an M4gery.

    This is what I did. Ran some Federal value pack, and then went to shitty Wolf shit.

    I followed JP's instructions for their stainless barrel I have on my AR, but for my CMMG bargain bin that I had before it, I just shot the piss out of it.

    I have no opinion on break-in procedure, but Torchwood ftw.
