    I am trying to get use to the heavy long trigger on my new M40-A1. I dry fire it about 50 times a day for about a week now. I want to "work" the firing pin spring to loosen the tension a bit and therefore reduces the weight of the trigger pull. Will I damage anything by dry firing this much?

    I've been told many times that dry firing won't damage anything on a semi-auto.

    But I always use snap-caps anyway... they're cheap, safe, and you can do drills with them without having to worry about a loaded weapon.

    Just my .02 worth

    To the best of my knowledge, it is SAFE to dry-fire Steyrs. I have done it thousands of times without any negative effect on all my 5 Steyrs. :) I believe the no-dry-fire rule applies to hammer equipped guns only.

    Most striker-fired pistols seem to be OK with dry firing.
