From the few people I have talked to that have a Les Baer, 2000 rounds was the number needed for break in. You might help the process along by lubing the frame rails and barrel lugs with oil, or a very light coating of gun grease, and shooting for a minimum of 500 rounds. If you use oil check the lube every 500 rounds and add a drop of two as necessary, with grease do not add any more. Also use ammo that has a higher level of powder residue, like Federal American Eagle or S&B. The powder residue will mix with the lube and act as a very mild polishing compound. After 500 rounds clean your pistol and see how things work. if it is still tight repeat the 500 round shooting cycle.

I hope this helps.
