Shadow 1 - removing firing pin for dryfire

I've done my share of dry fire but no issues on my pistols yet.

 

If you reload, make a dummy round and squeeze hot glue or silicone into the primer pocket.

 

if you don't reload, grab one of your spent cases,  use a small nail and tap out the old primer, clean out the old carbon from the pocket and fill with hot glue or silicone.

 

or order some Azooms from Amazon or your fav LGS.

The firing pin has to be in the slide to hold in the firing pin stop plate. Without either of those two parts the hammer will hit the frame.

This is a good point that i did not think of, if the slide were racked without the FP installed the FP plate may very well fall out.

 

Here is a reference pic for the O ring that was suggested by other forum members above.
