Stock 2 dry fire question

Recommended Posts

I see people dry firing CZs using rubber o-rings on the back of the firing pin to reduce the impact of repeated hammer hitting the firing pin.

CZs firing pin protrudes out quite a bit, allowing the o-ring to stay in place. The Stock 2 firing pin does not protrudes out of the back though.

For folks dry firing their Stock 2s a lot (1 hour/day, 5 days/week minimal), do you take any protective measure to reduce the wear and impacts? If so, could you please share some ideas?

Thanks.

After seeing the wear on the firing pin block, I took it out. I've been dry fire with a laser module A LOT this winter. 5-6000 da triggerings a week. Only issue I've seen is with the FPB. But the module has an elastomeric end like a snap cap.

What is this laser module you speak of?

Laserlyte or laserammo. They make a laser dot on the target, there is software that picks it up. "LASR" is the one I use. There is also invisible IR laser module and camera for more $$. But they keep you from getting target centric.

Hi guys, new to Tanfoglio so this might be a silly question, but I'm not sure I can see why dry firing on a snap cap (one of those with a spring to dampen the firing pin strike) would put any more wear on the gun than regular use. Am I missing something?

I don't fry fire with snap caps... When practicing and doing reloaded etc, I end up with snap caps under the desk, the computer, the stack of porn, the dead hooker in the corner... It's inconvenient imho... My revolver is different... It's got moon clips, so there aren't little plastic bullets rolling around waiting to trip you.

I use snap caps. Like ryridesmotox, there are some under tables etc...but even though inconvenient I still feel cushioning the firing pin is more gooder than not.

The caution is to ensure the chamber is empty before heading to a match!

Took a buddy last weekend to his first match... He and I work together on the same department... He rolls up loaded for duty carry... ROFL. I forgot to tell him to download and wait for the orders to make ready. Ooooops

Haha. Good. I showed up to my first match, gun on hip with an empty mag in it.

He did one worse than me. But my IDPA vest was also inside out... soooo. It's a wash.

Just use the  Patriot Defense  firing pin return spring. It will protevt from any possibility of dsnage. Leave the firing pin in place!

Dry firing is first shot da, then short stroke the trigger to mimic SA.  don't over think things. Use snap caps if you are worried, but they aren't needed. (Even though i do)

If I take out my FP and FPB do I still need to cushion the frame to dry fire ? Doesn't seem like the hammer is actually touching the frame with the FP removed.
