I don't dry fire any gun, assembled or unassembled. Krieghoff says you can, I still feel it is a bad practice. The firing pins have nothing to hit. I always use snap caps or fired shells. Have never had an issue with broken firing pins on Krieghoff, Perazzi, Browning etc. Just my opinion, Roy A. Morton
First step call Krieghoff they will tell what they feel is the best for your gun. Chokes are 5 is super full, 4 is full, 3 is I.M., 2 is mod, 1 is ic, ect. These guns are built like tanks. I am also in DE send me a pm if you want.

Pride Engineer has it right. I've been clearing the cocked receiver, once broken down for storage, that way for many years on a 1961 M. 32. It's what's taught by Krieghoff, repeated by Phillip of old P&P, and a gunsmith who worked for the factory in Ulm before retiring here in Orygun. If you apply too much pressure with the rag, the gun won't even uncock; too little isn't good, and you'll learn the right amount soon enough.....breakemall.....Bob Dodd
