Finally decided to spring for an extra frame.   And now am quite happy with a dedicated lower for each gun, 32ACP, and 22.   Only problem is, I neglected to order a second dry fire plug.    Just found out today, they are ten dollars a piece, and of course add another 14 for shipping.   

     So, my question.    Do I really need a dry fire plug for the 32?  And if I do, are there any others available that work?   Tried an old one I had for the Hammerli, but it didn’t last long.   Thanks,  Kate

Hey Schaumannk:

I have a pardini and have found some good alternatives:

If you get these from the CMP store, they will work as a dry fire plug.  

https://estore.thecmp.org/Catalog/Item/244

Sometimes you get some that have a square of yellow plastic at the elbow that can be easily removed with a box cutter knife.  

They last longer then the official pardini plug.  

The pardini plug will stay in the gun if you keep a empty magazine in and have a lifespan of about 500 dry fires.  

The cmp last probably thousands of dry fires.  

Here is a picture of the CMP style with the square at the elbow to see what I am talking about:

These also work but the one indicated as "rimfire" does not last as long:

https://www.bing.com/images/search?view=detailV2&ccid=g975JH2A&id=58C3DB6AC14F5E775A45984EF319E8BF39145DDE&thid=OIP.g975JH2Ab7LGUEor5hr28QHaId&mediaurl=https%3a%2f%2fwww.mfgservs.com%2fimage%2fcache%2fcatalog%2fmfgservs%2fp1-chamberflags-yellow-875x1000.jpg&exph=1000&expw=875&q=Empty+Chamber+Indicator+Flags&simid=607986263511140647&ck=9404AC9A07C999CD38CDF0346B3AF86F&selectedIndex=4&FORM=IRPRST&ajaxhist=0

The good news about all the above is that they stay inserted when you rack the bolt.  I would imagine a foam ear plug would work too if you could keep it inside when you rack it. 

Basically, you just need to hold the bolt open a quarter of a inch and it will work.

Kate,
I don't think you need a plug for 32ACP.  It is centerfire caliber, so there is no danger of damaging firing pin by having it consistently hitting barrel face as with 22LR.

Hi Alex.   I so enjoyed having you score me at Cardinal.   Hope to see you again soon at a match.  I actually broke a firing pin on a Beretta once from dry firing.   Maybe it was a bad one.   Don’t know, but I feel it doesn’t hurt to put one in.    Best,    Kate

The firing pin carries a shock wave that rings it like a tiny bell, when the tip has nothing to hit. Over time this can stretch, and crack the smaller pins in non-1911's etc. I agree a dryfire plug is best.

Well, if you insist.  I sometimes use modified case (cutting segment of the rim so case doesn't get extracted, - easy to do with sidecutters) with primer removed and its space filled with beewax wraps from babybel cheese (from Costco).  Beewax easily handles any harmonics of the firing pin tip even in 9/10mm calibers.  After few actuations, just add tiny bit of beewax. 

Look forward seeing you again, Kate.  But I also remember something coming up in exactly one month! Smile

Kate,

An ECI flag works fine in mine.

And yes (before TonyH chimes in) the gun does need cleaning!

The Pardini has gotta be one of the easiest guns to take apart and clean that there is.   You could probably almost do it, on the line.   I love the design. Very well thought out.

...But, but I very rarely clean guns! and I didn't even realize a Pardini could get dirty! Now I'm going to have make another bubble so you can bust it.

Kate, the big advantage of the dry fire plug for me is that you don’t have to fully cycle the hammer every time you cock the gun. Just a little pull on the slide and the sear engages, rather than having to do a full slide stroke.
