impact of dry-firing in a Rim fire

Recommended Posts


I have been using center fire designs for months. But I don’t have any idea about rimfires Recently I came to know that when we do dry fire in a rimfire rifles it ill affect the gun’s performance because of its brittle firing pins. If we do so how many rounds of dryfire will it take to affect the gun. Or is there any Gun Customization tricks to make it more reliable

I don't know what specific rimfire you're referring to, but if you're talking about a Ruger (of any type, as far as I know), it is safe to dry-fire them. Says so in the manual.

Other manufacturers, though? You'd have to ask them.
