FHBrumb: Sir; using my mess as a guide. I do not get to involved with how a new firearm is doing until about 4-500rds.
New part rubbing scraping, draggin, my fingers not adapted. Yes it probably is less; but like a new car?
My shooting partner was about to give up on his Khar. I encouraged him to give it time. We shot the last time out and he had a blast. Khar cleaned itself up. approx. 400rds
