    Sorry, not much info here. I just checked the manual for my Atchisson converter (NIB from 1973) and the manual says absolutely nothing about dry firing.

    I don't use it because I have a military m-261 converter that has been running great so no need for the Achisson.

    i'd have to look but i think there's a cutout in the chamber insert where the firing pin strikes so that it doesn't touch the chamber. i assume that means it's ok, but again, i'd have to look.

    I wouldn't dry fire a Ceiner unit. The firing pins break in those from time to time anyway.

    A standard Ciener bolt/magazine combo doesn't have LSHO, so you'd better be able to dry-fire it.

    I wouldn't dry-fire it for fun, but that's true of any gun IMO.

    If you really are worried about it, Black Dog magazines offer LSHO, but I find the Ciener mag to be more pleasant to load (there's a simple mod for the Black Dog using a string but I haven't done it to mine).
