    Default Dry Firing

    As opposed to springer, does dry firing have any damaging effect on PCP's?

    I would like to play around with my trigger settings again and seeing as I take about 2 fills worth of playing to tweak it, I was worried if this would upset anything in the rifle (S400).
    Not worried about cost of pellets should it be deemed better - have about 1000 Chinese no name brand diablo's left over from my childhood adventures on the farm.

    wsu?

    Guess you the expert Moose - hehe - seeing as you dry fired more shots than targets at that last night shoot I was at. Did it not do anything to your rifle?

    i wouldnt see any problem with it. a springers plunger is directly affetcted by havin a pellet in the barrel or not to the amount of resistance it gets from the pellet in the barrel, the pcp however has the spring system totally seperate from the valve where it releases the air so no matter what, the pcp spring will always have the same resistance if there is a pellet in the barrel or not. whats left is just the air released from the valve opening from the impact of spring and regulator(not to sure what its called but on the s400, the piece of steel hitting the valve opener thingy, he he) and thats just air, same as if the pellet is in or out of the barrel.
