Newbie here and just picked up my first AR - a RRA Entry Tac. My question is..... is there a break-in step or steps used for the barrel that must be done?

congrats on the new AR!

i'll guess its a C-L bbl, so the only "break-in" procedure i can recommend:

--field strip, clean and CLP, verify its all in order
--take it to the range w/ a few hundred rnds
--shoot and sight in til you run outta ammo
--repeat step 1

good luck!

Shoot 'till either satiated or out of ammo.
I ALWAYS run out of ammo first!

Welcome! Just shoot 100 rounds and clean. The bore should be nice and shiny from the Chrome lining. Now if it had a Match Barrel... whole nother story.

If you'll read your warranty card, RRA states there is no break-in needed. I just fired my Pro-Series Government for the first time this past weekend & did just as others have said -- lubed 'er up good with CLP & took it to the range!

Have fun!
