Yeah, that's probably very true. I could see doing this with a very high quality Moly barrel. But for a short chrome-lined...it probably isn't going to improve things much. But it won't hurt, either.

I break in my new firearms just like I break in a new car; Shoot/drive them the way you intend to Shoot/drive them.

The engineer in me says why bother doing something you intend to change in the future? I'm just sayin'.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I fire 1 then clean x5
fire 2 then clean x5
fire 5 then clean. Done.
20 rds total. Doesn't take long.(except my rem7600- it was rough as hell!!)

It really does seem to smooth out the bore and make future cleanings quicker and easier. Doesnt copper foul as fast so stays accurate longer. IMO

Nice M4's guys. I've got a DPMS. They are alot of fun to shoot!

The point of the break-in cleaning is to remove the burrs left by machining the rifling. Yes, it's true if you have a high quality match grade bbl, it won't be as bad, but with a mass produce barrel, I would definitely recomend doing it. It doesn't take long, maybe an hour or so, and as Gatekeeper said, it increases accuracy in between cleanings and makes cleaning easier. Well worth the effort in my book.

As far as breaking in the barrel, do what BKT said, you won't regret it. And as far and posting pictures, read this thread.

Doh! you're right, math was never my strong suit, tell ya the truth I never heard of breakin in the barrel, I wouldn't even think it would require breakin in being that it is chrome lined. Is that in the instruction manual?No I didn't mess with sighting it any closer, I'm going to put a Barska Tactical Red Dot electro sight on her once I get enough cash together.

Can you take a few pics of those rails or tell me where I can get them. I really want to add at least a single rail to the bottom of my existing handguard. I looked on Bushmasters page but they just offer the whole handguard setup

The rails were already mounted on the forearm stock. The ones at 11 and 2 o'clock position are located as forward as possible. The one at 6 o'clock is actually able to be mounted in many locations for use with a pistol grip.

[QUOTE=rjgnwdc;176739]this is my first Blackgun Bushmaster XM15 E2S M4 Carbine. I have shot my brother n Laws several times anyway I got it Saturday evening read the owners manual it said to clean my new gun before I shot it so I did and it was really easy but it hardly needed cleaning it wasn't over oiled or greased but it help me get to know it a little better. Next morning I take it to the range it's the NRA's range here in Fairfax and they just have an indoor and it's only 150 ft or 75 yard so I set up my target they have shooting rests and table and chair anywho I use the iron sights take 3 shots and they're slightly low of dead center but all 3 shot would fit in a 50 cent piece Sa-wheet! this is an excellent weapon should be a lot of fun.
