Ok so this will either be an easy answer or endlessly debatable but here it goes. What exactly is accomplished with the so called break-in process other than burning through some rounds. Now I am a novice when it comes to handguns but I am in manufacturing and it seems to me that breaking in would just test the gun to see if it was manufactured out of tolerance and if so is totally out or if you can beat it in with a few hundred rounds. The manufacturing technology exists that any gun manufacturer can meet whatever tolerances he sees fit. If the slide to frame fit it too tight then change the tolerance. If the springs are too stiff from the factory then have them leave the factory with different springs. Yes, precision does cost money and you typically get what you pay for but with the technology that exists today I don't find it unreasonable to expect a gun to shoot and shoot well right out of the box. Don't send me a gun that requires me to be a gunsmith. All thoughts on this will be appreciated. If I am poorly informed about something then please correct me. Thanks guys.
Part of this spawns from the face that my brand new CZ Rami 9mm still jams after 600 rounds, a ramp polish, and a chamber polish. This happens with all mags and all types of ammo. I am convinced that the slide is out of tolerance and from time to time it doesn't fully cycle causing a case to stovepipe right at the top of the ejection port. Either that of the ejector isn't contacting the bullet the same way every time which could still be frame I guess. Most of the time cases kick out hard to the right and eject properly but sometimes a case will be lobbed straight up with less force. I am going shooting today and if I have any more jams I am returning it and getting a Sig,H&K, or Kimber 1911. Sorry CZ. The Rami is pretty accurate, feels great, looks good, and seems to be built well but I think I may have just gotten a bad one. I know this happens from time to time in manufacturing but I need my CCW to be 100% reliable.
