No, it'll be fine.
Hi guys, newbie here. I've got a Glock 27 and to dissamble it for cleaning I must dry fire it first before I can remove the slide. I know it's by design but isn't this bad for the firing pin?
Jeff, thanks for your reply. Can you please elaborate? How is our Glocks different?
Be careful... you'll wear out that Glock firing pin after about 1,123,014 dry fires.
Yer finger will fall off first.
Most centerfire pistols, Glock included, can be dry fired without harm.
This was taken from the FAQ of another site:
DRY FIRING OF GLOCK HANDGUNS
Q. Is it true that dry firing is not damaging to a Glock?
Q. You will not hurt the pistol a bit. Reason is the spring cups are polymer and that is what strikes the rear of the breachface. Dry fire away!
Hope it gives you a little bit of peace of mind.
The best part about this take down procedure is reminding yourself to always check the chamber!!!
Is the proceedure the same for the 32?
I always stick a pencil, eraser first, down the barrel of mine and dry fire it to make sure it is working properly after reassembly. That won't hurt it either and you know it will fire.
By the way I sell these special glock pencils for a good price so pm me.
Basically, it just ensures you put everything back together properly after detail-stripping the gun.
