S&W Model 617

Just purchased a new Model 617 in .22LR:D I keep reading about
how it is important to break in a new .22 properly. I understand how a centerfire can use some shooting to smooth up the barrel, but how do I break in a .22?
P.S. I love this forum, am learning A LOT:cool: :cool: :cool:

Never heard of that one before. To me, breaking in means using.
I would load, aim, and pull the trigger. Do it often.
I had a new 617 whose action was smoother than any handgun I've had out of the box. I sold it in a fit of stupidity. r
