The Axe is a great gun right out the box. Put some
cases through it to break in the bolt like any other gun.

The first page of the Axe owner's manual reads: "*READ OWNERS MANUAL BEFORE USING*" There's a start.

You mean reg, why would you need to break in the bolt ?

All of the dynamic o-rings on the bolt guide need to be broken in as well before they "settle in", if you catch my drift.

All of the o-rings will break in thru use. But the main o-rings that need to break in first are the reg o-rings as they are the ones that control consistency and overall operation of the gun.

I'd agree with that the reg seems to be the major thing needing a break in on the Axe. I'd go with the drops of oil right away if I was doing it again, that really helped to settle mine down.
