Can the Ounce™ pistol be dry
As a safety precaution dry
firing is not recommended, however, it is possible to dry fire Ounce™
pistol. This is a unique feature vs
most rim fire guns. Use caution
that the chamber, transporter and
magazine do not have active rounds
in them. Cycle the handle to reset
the hammer between dry firings and
re-check that the chamber indicator
shows empty (red high and not low
in indicator, refer to manual) before dry firing. The
handle does not need to go all the
way closed to reset the hammer. At
the point the handle fully occludes
the trigger guard, the hammer
should be reset. Always point in
a safe direction when dry firing -
treat as loaded! You’ll notice more
resistance closing the handle after
dry firing as the motion is acting to
reset the hammer. Do not dry fire
without the barrel and bolt installed. The chamber indicator may change state to indicate chambered after dry firing and is reset when cocking the hammer.
