How do you recommend the gun is broke in?
Answer: We and H-S Precision recommend that for the first 50 rounds that the guns is cleaned after every shot.

Step 1.
Saturate bore brush with Hoppe's No. 9 (or the like) and slowly push through the bore from the chamber and out the muzzle, two or three times. This will get the bulk of the powder fouling out of the barrel.

Step 2.
Remove the brush from the rod, attach jag with patch and push through the bore. Repeat several times, using a new patch each time.

Step 3.
Remove jag from rod and attach the brush. Saturate the brush with Sweets and slowly push through the bore two or three times. Let the Sweets sit in the barrel for a few minutes. Follow with two or three patches.

Step 4.
Inspect barrel and if any copper fouling remains repeat step 3.

Step 5.
Use Hopes No 9 to remove any Sweets. Follow this with two or three patches or until one comes out clean.

Step 6.
Wipe end of muzzle to remove any excess oil and solvent that came out the end of the barrel.
