dry firing


Recommended Posts

I know there are some centerfire designs where the firing pin can be damaged during dry fire, but as far as I can tell the Tanfoglio design does not have that problem.

only rimfires you need to be avoid it in.

I have also heard this advice, but I have tens of thousands of rounds through my competition .22 with at least that many dry strikes and I have observed no ill effects. On all the rimfires I've looked at, the firing pin cannot actually reach the breech face. Maybe this piece of advice has outlived a previous design paradigm wherein the FPs of rimfires would hit the hard steel of the breech face without a soft brass rim to stop them???
