Hello all, just wanted to relay a positive experience. I ordered and received an RGUNS 20" super bull upper with excellent service and the quality is great. It sits on a plum crazy lower with hundreds of rounds expended with it. If you would please let me have your opinions on breakin' it in. there are many schools of thought on this, I am prior military and always had cobbled together weapons so I am really excited about doing this barrel right. the rifle has a 4x16x50 mildot scope.

Thanks,

First off, Welcome to the Armory!

 

Second, we will be expecting pics of your build. (it is sort of a tradition here). :thumb:

 

I highly recommend a BoreSnake. I have one for every caliber of my guns, both rifles and pistols. Now, as you said, there are several schools of thought here, so expect a few different methods and theories. For mine, I fired a round then ran the snake through it. ( a bit of solvent just before the brush, and then oil about an inch after the brush). Then I run about 5 rounds through and snake it again. Then 10 and snake it. 10 more and snake again. Then 20 and snake. Then I am done, and give the whole weapon a thorough cleaning after I am done shooting. That's my method, but I am sure you'll get different suggestions.

First post on the forums... Thumper, just curious about your method, is that the way you break in barrels and can a barrel be "over fired" out of the box?
