Today’s guns come off the assembly line theoretically ready to fire. In reality most guns require a break-in period to allow parts to mesh together and result in a gun that functions reliably. PDN Contributor Grant Cunningham shares his gun break-in procedure so you can learn how to break in a handgun, which is quick, easy to do, and allows the parts to burnish themselves before the gun is taken to the range and tested for functioning.

      Yes, the gun used in the video is a Steyr M-A1 pistol and one of the steps in the field stripping process is to pull the trigger.
