Although in all fairness I have only fired 3-400 rds.
I wouldn't worry about a break in period though. Many new guns need a break in before reliability is up to snuff. Just gives you more excuse to shoot them!!
Oh yeah, trigger on mine is also pretty blah. Probably going to upgrade to a RRA match trigger.
the only down side to it seems to be the kick and trigger
trigger can be changed and a MB should help with kick/recoil
