Some people think the break in period is bs, but I assure you it is not.
The break in period issue got my attention. I know some think if it doesn't work out of the box, it's broke. Then others believe in the break in period.
Some say there's the official break in periods with some 1911 manufacturers so a person will be disinclined to send the gun back. One esteemed person noted most 1911's are not shot much, which the manufacturers take into account.
The issue that says to me break in is valid is that today's 1911's are tighter than the ones of decades past.
