Yesterday I purchased a new M&9C. Can't wait to get to the range. This is the first new gun I've ever bought. My question for you all is. I've read on different sites about " breaking in" a new gun. Is there a way that a new handgun should be broken in?

There is not really a "correct" break in for pistols.

When I buy a new pistol I usually:

-Bring it home and clean it thoroughly, including mags. Lube it per the manual.

-Take it to the range and shoot 200-300 target rounds through it.

-Bring it home and clean it again. Lube it per the manual.

-Go back the range and shoot 200-300 target rounds through it.



This will give the parts enough action to start to wear in; and it will give you an idea if the gun is reliable with the ammo you used. I usually run at least 1000 rounds of target ammo through a pistol to make sure it's reliable. If it's reliable, I will then run 100 rounds of my defensive load through the gun to make sure it is reliable. Actually, during the first 1000 I use all different ammo to ensure reliability.

Page 26 of the manual explains mag disassembly/reassembly.



I would only very, very lightly lube the mag body. Then wipe off/out any excess oil.

As soon as I get the new weapon home.....

1. I run a patch though the bore.

2. Load the magazine/cylinder.

3. Fire all the rounds in the magazine/cylinder.

4. Repeat step 2 and 3..........
