Can I dry fire my 22 rimfire?

Table of contents


We do not recommend dry firing the rimfire firearms as this may cause damage to the firing pin and to the chamber. The firing pin on rimfires strikes the rim of the cartridge (thus the "rimfire" designation), so dry firing would allow the firing pin to strike the edge of the chamber area causing possible damage.
