I know this has already been beat to death :deadhorse: but I'm really having a hard time grasping this is really that bad a problem. As far as I can tell it is not possible to take a MkIII apart for cleaning without dry firing the gun. Unless you leave a snap cap in the chamber there is no way to clear the gun and take it apart without dry firing. I also noticed that my new 10/22 doesn't have a last round hold open so unless you are paying close attention to how many rounds you've sent down range aren't you more than likely going to dry fire the rifle at the end of every magazine? Finally, why is it when you go to buy a .22 the people behind the counter don't have a snap cap for you to try the trigger out with? No returns on firarm purchases but you can't try the trigger until it's yours :huh: Is this a bigger issue with older firearms? Have the manufacturers caught up with the idea that the gun is going to be dry fired?
