P938 break in?




Ok, I have new P938, but haven't had a chance to get to the range for the last week now. Been carrying it around just to get used to it. It cycles perfectly by hand, and smooth as butter with my Starfire's, but am almost out of ammo. I have only about 100rds to put through it for now.

What would you guys recommend from experience with this model to work in the components for reliable carry?

I ask this because my friend says he ran 200+ through his before carrying it, but some others say they run perfect out of the box, and don't really need hundreds of rounds to run them in. Just a few mags to check function, and you're good to go.

My 938 was not fussy at all with ammo and ran well from the start with 115/124gr. ball, 125gr. Hornady XTP's and LSWC. I find the 938 has some of the toughest magazine and recoil springs I've run across and leaving your mags. loaded for a couple of days might help. If you just want to smooth out any burrs, etc., then standard ball ammo will work as well as anything.

Only you can decide when you're comfortable enough with it's function to EDC, but I'd suggest running NLT at least 1 box of what-ever you plan to use before you carry.

Well, I just got back, put over 100rds of various ammo through it. 100rd of old PMP 115gr ball ammo, and about another 50rds of old Starfires that I've been meaning to get rid of, and replace with some fresh 135gr Hydra-Shoks. They all fired flawlessy, the gun operated without a hitch. I am more than confident enough that the 135gr Hyda-Shoks are a great match up to use as a defensive round with this particular pistol. I'm sure the Hornady 135gr Critical Duty rounds will also work pretty much the same.

The pistol shot 4" groups at 7ds with the old PMP ammo while standing, and I was able to get down to 2" with the Hydra-Shoks, especially while resting.

I would say for a small 3" pocket pistol, this thing is the cats meow!!!
