Hello. I just picked up a Ruger MKII. I got the SS model with the 5.5" bull barrel. I don'e see it mentioned in the manual anywhere and there is no place on Ruger's website to send them a question.

Does anyone know if it is ok to dry-fire it? I had a regular MKII 20 years ago in my former shooting life and seem to remember tht it wasn't reccomended.

Thanks,

Ed

Most rimfire handguns shouldn't be dryfired without a snap cap in place.

JMHO & YMMV

Ooops!

The first time I golssed thorugh the manual I didn't see anythng. Then I went to Ruger's website and brought the manual up as a pdf and did a search for "dry fire" and I found it. The answer is yes as long as the firing pin block is in place.

Thanks for your patience!
