Is it ok to dry fire HP's without a snap cap in it?
yes it is ok
edit: mas that was annoying. i just put "yes" first but its said message is too short so i add "yes it is" and that was still too short so i added "yes it is ok" and it finally worked haha
Center fire firearms can be dry fired. Rim fire firearms are a dry fire no no.
I usually use a pencil down the barrel to check for function and it shows where the firing pin hits the eraser.
Rim fire snap caps.
Not always. CZ52 pistols have an issue with dry fire due to brittle firing pins, and almost every modern rim fire can be dry fired with no problem. There are exceptions, but that's true both ways.
Just going on what I have read about rim fire firearms. Have not found a Mfg yet that does not warn against dry firing. I have 3 rim fires all different brands and they all say the same thing.
have you tested/used these?
my rimfire kit has trouble w/plastic & many times make them nearly impossible to cycle properly.
Use them all the time in my .22 1911. You load one in the chamber. You don't cram them in your mag.
I have 31 rimfires, and Ruger, Heritage, CZ, Mossberg, Marlin, and a few others all are ok with dry fire, and some even include it in the manual as part of the function check.
Remington 597, though...not a word from the company, unless you go to their FAQ on the website, where they do not recommend it. But they have a LRHO.
From my Ruger Mark II manuals reassembly instructions:
"5. With the muzzle pointed in a safe direction, push the safety to the “off” (F)
position and pull the trigger to decock the pistol. The pistol can be dry fired as
long as the firing pin stop is in place."
Yep, the Ruger and Mossberg manuals both say that.
Not to hi-jack the thread but a second follow up question. How do you dry fire a hi point? I have a c9 and a 4095ts and without a round in the chamber neither one "cock".
C-9 should cock just fine. Have to remove the empty mag to get the slide to go forward. Then reinsert the mag to dry fire it. Or cock it without a mag and insert one to dry fire. I'll let you figure out your third option on your own less I be accused of being a child killer or something.
Thanks! Never put the mag back in. Just worked the action.
Not a bad idea to get some snap caps for function checks and practice failure drills.
Worth the money.
Its on my list for the gun show this weekend
I laughed but I thought about this at first as well.
Damn, Nhiker, those grips on your C9 look FINE!
Phoenix Arms HP-22A's can be dry-fired safely too since they have the firing pin safety, S&W does not recommend dry-firing their M&P 22 rifles though....
