To me, when a new gun comes home, I look forward to a complete break-down and through cleaning. It's actually somewhat of a thrill to clean out all the factory gunk, metal shavings, and other crap you don't want in your new firearm, and by doing so, it makes one very familiar with the weapon and its workings. When done, it's really clean and ready for its first outing, and the chore gives a real sense of satisfaction too.So, out of the box, a good cleaning is required. Not a show-stopper but it does take the initial thrill out of receiving a new shooter.
I also like to know for sure the weapon was indeed test fired, and evidence of that is reassuring to me that it really has been done at the factory prior to landing in my hot little hands. No "first shot surprises"!
