Hi everyone.
I have a brand new K-Mini14-5
How many shots is the breakin period?
I bought a recoil buffer should I put it in now when it is brand new or should I wait until it is broken in?
Thank you!
I installed a hogue oversized stock.

Welcome to the forum Joey. There are many different ideas on barrel break in. So here is the way I broke mine in. I got 100 rds of ammo. Cleaned the bore, fired 3, then cleaned. Did this 3 times. Fired 5, then cleaned. Did this 3 times. Fired 10, then cleaned. Did this for the remainder of the 100 rds. Used Hoppi's BenchRest copper solvent. BTW I kept my barrel cool enough so I could touch the barrel with out discomfort.

Afterward field striped, and cleaned everything. Used a thin coat of gun grease in bolt slots, to cut down on wear. Light coat of Rem oil in bore, and exterrior metal, then wiped it down.
