Use a small object to push the little button in the center of the base, then slide the base off.
The button holds the base in place

Does anyone know if we have to register our pistols with SCCY for warranty purposes? Thanks. MJ

SCCY warranties the pistol for it's life rather than the initial (or any) owner. No registration needed for warranty. If you contact SCCY for a warranty issue you just need the serial number. :kickback:

Depends on who you ask. Some say there are no problems, others say it causes the firing pin to slam the back side of the bolt as there is nothing there for it to hit. Also depends on the firearm. I have a Heritage .22 pistol. It is rim fire and should not be dry fired as the firing pin is slammed into the hard steel of the gun instead of the rim of the cartridge. If the safety is on the hammer never contacts the firing pin. On this pistol at least, the safety rotates the hammer back away from the pin.

For the most part it depends on the gun. Also there is a few threads on this subject that go into better detail.

Why doesn't SCCY answer this question? Most of my pistols are dry fire safe and states so in their manuals. The CPX-2 manual does not make any statement to this. Most people just want to know if damage will occur if someone dry fires. It happens!

If it bothers you to dry fire your pistol buy a package of snap caps.

Or make your own, google, how to make snap caps and you will have more ways to make them than you have time to absorb.

Yup! So true. But then they do make snap caps for a reason. :D

For myself I have no fear of dry firing a weapon, just do not believe it does the mechanism any good, and may harm it in time.

Other reasons for snap caps:

1. For safe (non-loaded w/live ammo) cycling of mags and actions.
2. For filling in drum mags in non-standard applications ;)

One more reason--malfunction drills. You have a friend randomly insert a snapcap in the magazine while loading it. It acts like a FTF/FTE/dud and allows you to practice what to do when that happens (Tap/Rack/Fire drill.)

I did contact SCCY about this and here's their response from Support@sccy.com: "I am a HUGE fan of dry firing and have thousands of clicks on my SCCY guns. If snap caps make you feel comfortable, then it will not harm the gun (don't use fired cases). They are also helpful in ball and dummy drills."
