Your barrel is now broken in. Prior to firing your weapon make sure it is properly lubricated and you have performed step 1 once. If you do choose to accelerate the process this does not void your warranty. Failing to properly lubricate your rifle prior to firing may void your warranty. We do not recommend lapping of the barrel.

 

Please ensure to properly lubricate your rifle, the bolt carrier group, hammer and trigger springs, charging handle, barrel extension, gas key, and bolt all require lubrication. The military specification calls for a Teflon based lubricant CLP is recommended.

 

Your rifle is not RF85 treated and must be lubricated just like any machine.
