Several days ago I was ready in the range then realized that I forgot to bring any magazine with me. The gentleman at next bench suggested me just manually drop each round in the chamber and shoot.

I remembered a Youtuber reasoned that dropping a round in the chamber could potentially wear and damage the extractor for a pistol. Is this also true for the 995TS? I played with a dummy round in the chamber, and it looks like the 995TS uses a controlled feed. The extractor is fixed. So it is similar to a pistol.

Please share your opinion.

Yes, it can wear the extractor.

You can do this, but it's generally not recommended. I usually won't hurt if you don't do it much.

Good news is that HP will probably send you a new extractor and spring if you break it.

Peace favor your sword,
Kirk
