Dry-fire henry levers?



Log in to see fewer ads
Does anybody actually count down their shots to avoid a dry-fire. I have read around, and have not found anything related to dry-firing a Henry rimfire. I know in some cases it is a necessary evil... like on a 10/22. It seems that
the Henry would be engineered for dry-fire service due to its design. Am I going to damage my breech? I"think" its fine to dry-fire, but it would be nice to hear it from others. This may be a hair brained question.

Thanks,
Chris

Dry-fire henry levers?

Never dry fire any of our rimfire levers or our pumps. This will cause the chamber to become "peened". Our rifles are from an era in which this was common knowledge.
