      Dry firing of Browning Buckmark pistols

      Is it O.K. to dry fire Browning Buckmark pistols with an empty chamber or should they only be dry fired with a rimfire snap cap in place ?

      Thanks.

      You should really use a snapcap on any 22 pistol that you dry fire.

      I purchased a pack for the .22 at Gander Mt. and on the pack it stated "not for dry firing". I read this after I got home. Now I have to find ones that I can dry fire with.

      You can't dry fire (without a snap cap etc) most if not all .22 autos without risk of battering the firing pin.

      Use snap caps at the very least or you risk damaging the firing pin.

      Couldn't you just use a used cartridge as a snap cap? I mean its already paid for and, well that's what its made for.

      Yep, that's what a lot of people do.

      I don't dry fire any of my guns. JMHO but I can't believe it is good for any gun even if the mfg says it is OK.

      A proper snap cap will load from the magazine. I have trouble loading a spent shell directly into the chamber on my 22A. I have a set for the .40 but not the .22. I don't dry fire the 22. I do exercise the trigger with an empty chamber looking for undesired movement.

      If there was any firearm that you would not dry fire it would be the 22 rimfire. "Snap Cap" for sure.

      My sig mosquito came with a small rubber plug with a tang that sticks outside the slide. I don't know if this was meant as a "empty chamber" indicator. I think it works well as a snap cap.
