“JoeWayneRhea”Yeah the only thing I could think of that dry firing a springer would do is possibly form the piston buffer to the cylinder faster …Whether that’s good or bad is hard to say . A piston firing under spring pressure , I can’t see how a TINY piece of lead could be cushioning the fall …I don’t do it to other guns but I dry fire my personal gun without a thought This will help if you feel like a very informative read.

It takes something between fifty and a couple of hundred PSI to push the pellet into the forcing cone and engrave the rifling.  That pressure has to exist *before* the pellet starts moving down the barrel. This sim is also interesting.
