when i do maintenance on my paintball gun i dry fire it like 200-300 times while oiling it...iv been doing it for years now and i havent busted a single seal or anything...so it really dont bother a paintball gun at all

ions are like mustangs...alot of people have them but not many know how to use them...

Tell that guy it isnt a real gun. Dry firing is bad for a real gun not a paintball marker.

Dry-firing really doesn't affect a paintball gun. This holds true especially after it has recently been oiled, so long as you dont have the barrel on. However dry-firing does affect a real gun and could ruin it. So make sure when you do dry fire your paintball gun, not to fire it too much. Any more than 30-40 shots isn't a good thing.

i cant see any technical way it could hurt it. its not like a gun where you could break the firing pin. i take mine apart and oil it after every day of playing and dry-fire it to spread around the oil. a tippmann is like an ak-47. it can be rusted inside and keep on going.

Is it true that dry-firing is not good for your gun? when i bought my gun the guy said dry-firing could ruin it. i dont see any way it could hurt it. but could it?
