I searched the forums and only came up with a thread regarding new firearm break in procedures so I thought I’d ask…what say the Brotherhood on new barrel break-in, in particular if the barrel manufacturer stipulates one?
I’ve poked around the internet and the opinion of many would seem to be that breaking in a barrel is pointless and therefore a waste of time, regardless of whether the manufacturer has one or not. I realize that there is a wide range of quality levels in AR barrels, from cheap Parkerized carbine barrels to chrome lined to stainless steel match grades, so maybe this is an additional factor to consider.
I’m currently working on an upper build with what I don’t necessarily consider a cheap barrel and I’d really appreciate some honest opinions and personal experiences on this subject. I consider you lot to be a trusted source for solid info, you’ve not let me down yet.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
