      Dry firing a bolt action of the type with a spring around the firing pin will not hurt the firing pin or damage the firing pin hole In the bolt. This was proven by the 2112's in the Marine Corps. We dry fired the crap out of our M40A1's when I was in.

      With that said, I prefer to use snap caps or action proving dummies so that I also get practice running the bolt, staying on target while I do so. I've seen guys dry fire on the Rem700 and only lift the bolt up and back down.......on a "cock on opening" action that's all you need to do to recock it. I feel this is building bad habits and should be avoided.

      Shortly before World War I, the German Kaiser was the guest of the Swiss government to observe military maneuvers. The Kaiser asked a Swiss militiaman: "You are 500,000 and you shoot well, but if we attack with 1,000,000 men what will you do?" The soldier replied: "We will shoot twice and go home."

        I always smile when this thread circles back around. Having spent numerous hours training with Flea like many others on this site I know the value of dry practice.

        That being said I saw CR's comment on A-Zoom, has anyone tried these. http://www.harbourarms.com/index.php?main_...dex&cPath=1

        I have not at this point, just looking for feedback.

          Jweb,
          Might worry about something like that if I was going to be doing a lot of dry fire on my M1A. There have been many types of them over the years, I guess I just never really saw the purpose.

              I've got some of those. They do what they're meant too.

                These are the ones I use. They are well made and I like them.

                  Good to hear they are worth it. In the past I have used snap caps from Tipton. They work, but the plastic will always crack after time.

                    You may want to check this one out. It is made by Fulton Armory specifically for M1 Garand, M14 and M1A. I have used a similar device in my AR platforms and they work very well.
