The Colt 6920 has a chrome lined bore and therefore does not need to be broken in.

You should use the well proven FALARAK method of a chrome lined bore break-in:

DEFENSE!

on the 6920, clean then shoot it as if you were issued it and not paying for the ammo.

Barrel break in is a myth.

Just shoot it.

actually chrome has to be broken in and according to bushmaster all that needs to be done is shoot it and avoid cleaning too much in the begining
