Shoot the crap out of it.

Seriously,
I like to crack the pup open and give her a clean and lube
before the first run at the range.
It's not really mandatory, but that's all you need to do.

The G21 is a fine weapon.
Enjoy your new Glock!

Oh and Merry Xmas!

No break in required. Some will say leave the factory copper lube on for 200 rounds.

Just shoot it

I usually run a patch through the barrel and make sure the slide rails have some lube on them. Then enjoy!

I am not a big striker fired pistol fan. I served 30 years on the Chicago Poilce Dept carrying a revolver. This 21 will be my night stand pistol. I am just a little shaky with the glock. I am a Sig guy and prefer DA/SA but like the idea of 13 rd mags for house pistol. Merry Christmas to all.

Glocks don't need breaking in, which is different than you getting used to it. They will function reliably right out of the box. The trigger will smooth out some with use though.

I prefer not to remove the copper colored lube from new glocks, but let it "wear in" for several hundred rounds.

Glocks sort of are DA/SA once you are used to the trigger reset.

Clean, Lube, Shoot.

The FNX45 is a "hammer" DA/SA and has a 15 round mag. I have several FNP45s and a new FNX45Tac. I prefer them over all of my many 45s incl the G21Gen4

Wow, 30 years with a revolver? I feel for you, ugh
I was a SIG guy too, but the SA striker fired Glock is the way to go! Don't put finger on the trigger unless you are going to shoot. Same trigger pull every time!

I "broke" mine in with about 150-200 rounds of 230gn ball

Somewhere towards the back of the manual I believe it suggests cleaning the pistol but leaving the copper colored anti-sieze lubricant in place, and lubricating the gun before shooting it. Otherwise the people that make them do not seem offer or suggest a need for any breaking in procedure.

Enjoy your new G21.

The clean and lube are optional with a GLOCK...

What they said
 
I usually with a new Glock just leave the copper colored stuff that came on it there for the first couple of boxes of ammo I shoot. Then I clean as normal and lightly lube and put back together and she is good to go. I am a LEO so the ones I have are for business and I hardly ever leave home without one.

Pat, you're going to love it. I got a blue label G21 gen4 with NS for my 50th and it's a great gun, wish I could carry it (or the G30 gen4) at work. Shoots nice and soft! Grab some CPD duty ammo and you have a great home defense weapon!

Do you happen to know what the CPD currently use as their duty ammo?

HKLovingIT 02-11-2013 20:27

Clean it, lube it and shoot the snot out of it. :wavey:
