Dry fire a Benelli?


Recommended Posts

The firing mechanism in many shotguns is very similar to that of a centerfire rifle.

Limited dry firing has never seemed to harm any weapon I've owned, but if I were going to make a habit out of repeatedly dry firing a weapon, I'd use snap caps.

try to keep in mind that the axis or a rimfire's firing pin falls in relation to the edge of the barrel's bore at the breach. if you are not using snap caps or FN_FAL's nice idea, you are dropping the hardened pin on the breach's steel. not good for either part over the long haul.


brownnells.com had a nice selection of snap caps, dummy rounds and action provers if you are interested in trying your guns without live rounds.
