New to Kahr--Dry firing?

7953 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  ron54
About to pick up a slightly used CM9 this weekend. I am a big believer in regular practice, including dry firing. Some manufacturers put a warning in their owner's manuals saying NOT to dry fire without snap caps, others are silent on the issue. Haven't seen the manual for the gun I'm buying, so I don't know what Kahr says.
I understand the purpose of snap caps, but if you are doing repeated dry firing with a DAO gun which requires racking the slide after each trigger pull, you will be constantly ejecting the snap caps.:mad:
I know some people will say to use the snap caps just for the extra margin of safety, but what does Kahr say about it, and is there any history of striker or other damage from dry firing CM9's?
Thanks in advance.

I dryfire mine some. I don't remember reading about any problems dryfiring kahrs.
Toney is right, Kahrs can be dry fired without problems. There is a section for Questions & Answers on the Kahr site that states it is ok to dry fire their guns............unloaded of course !!!!!
