I use snap caps in my P99.[b said:Quote[/b] ] Q. Will it damage the pistol to dry fire it 150 to 200 times per week?
A. We can not recommend to dry fire the P99 to this extent without snap caps.
Because the firing pin is designed to decelerate somewhat gradually on the primer, not to slam to a stop on an internal steel travel limiter. The firing pin can crack/break.[b said:Quote[/b] (Jammer @ Aug. 15 2003,11:38)]why is it prefereble to use snap caps?
