Video — Is it Safe to Dry Fire a Blaser Rifle?

Yes, it is safe to dry fire a Blaser Straight-pull rifle. With one caveat. You must do so with a barrel attached. Let me explain.

  • The most common area this becomes an issue when when the user is cleaning the rifle and has it disassembled. It is very tempting to work the action and pull the trigger when the barrel is off. It is at this point that most firing pins get damaged. They may not fail at this point, but the stage is set for an issue to develop later on.

    If you have done this to your Blaser, I suggest you take out a jeweler’s loop and look closely at the tip for signs of deformation or the beginning of hairline cracks. I am not saying this is happens with just one instance. I am saying this is how it happens.

    Side fact: the amazon show “the grand tour” had a blaser rifle in an episode. By the way it’s a car show.

    • Hmm…never heard of it. But I’m not a big TV person. I think Hollywood likes the TAC Blasers since they are so crazy looking.
