    Steyr LP2 dry fire not working

    I was about to do some dry firing practice in my office and BANG!
    Full "wet fire" cycle.

    It just will not dry fire. I have followed the instructions in the manual to the letter.



    Any ideas folks?

    What is the procedure that you are following?
    I would imagine it went bang because the cocking lever was closed.

    What happens if you cock the gun and leave the lever about 10-15mm from home?

    I draw the lever back fully and return it to the point where T on the frame (training) is still visible.

    Dry fire position on the LP2 will work anywhere from just near the "F" up to the point where you can feel the resistance as you get close to the "T". Are you closing the action too much perhaps?

    You can also unscrew the cylinder slightly and use a rubber washer to prevent the cylinder from flapping about and if you do fully return the cocking arm and the striker hits the valve it won't go bang. I had some 3mm think EPDM rubber sheet spare to fashion something from.

    Be good. And if you can't be good, be good at being bad.
