> Hi Prabhath,

> Very interesting - thanks.
> However this "DRY FIRING" Pertains & Confines only to PCP air guns (match weapons) particularly.
> Dry Firing should not be done / practiced on Spring Piston Air Rifles / Guns.
> The reason being the impact of the piston on the transfer port area (without the resistance of a pellet in front of it) will cause excessive vibration & can damage the spring.
> Also this excessive vibration will loosen the screws holding the action to the stock, besides it will also damage the seal.
> Take care - Do Not Dry Fire a Spring Piston Air Rifle / Gun.
Cheers
Briha
