They can require break in regardless of new or used slide depending on how much polishing and sanding you do on the rails. The rails are often slightly oversized or slightly angled which seems to be what causes most of the tightness when racking.

What surfaces are you polishing? Top? Or sides? Or both?

Thanks.

I said that I found that. Built several but always run the rails over sandpaper as part of the build process. Shown in several YouTube videos. I think most folks need to do a little more research before their first build IMHO

Thanks.
So on the G19, I just did the top section of the rails. Mothers aluminum polish and a Dremel.

On the G20, the rails were a bit too wide, I ground those back a little and polished the tops of that one also.
