Dry Firing 27's

they say dry firing a 1911 is fine, just don't drop the slide on an empty chamber, but this isn't a 1911.

I have always hear that dryfiring any gun (to much) is not good for it.

The statement about dropping the slide on an empty chamber in a M1911 is very correct...real fast way to break the extractor.

Get a set of snap caps.
In my 27A1 with it's stock barrel they would stick in the chamber requiring a dowel and a few taps to drive them out.
A new barrel and rechambering fixed that.
The old style firing pins that AO used seem much sturdier. But I still wouldn't recommend long term dry firing of any firearm.
Just my .02 though.
