What is a safe way to dry fire my Model 41??   Is an empty case in the chamber good enough or is there a dry fire gismo I can purchase, make?  Also where are places I can purchase 41 parts such as a firing or springs etc.   
Thanks in advance

Jim

Snap caps makes .22 plastic rounds for dry fire.  Wolff has all the springs and Clark Guns sells aftermarket barrels. Firing pin should be easy from Brownells.

The problem with "snap caps" is that I've never found any that would last very long and they're not particularly inexpensive.  You'd be better off with yellow wall anchors found at Lowe's, Home Depot, etc.  A search of this website for dry firing solutions will yield a lot of info.  Unfortunately, there's no solution that everyone here will agree on and it depends very much on personal experience with specific pistols.  Happy hunting!

Has anyone here used the Red Feather Outfitters .22 dry fire plugs?  Just wondering how well they work and last for $1+ apiece.

I use them in my 208. Seem to last long enough and easy to remove.

I have to say its "American engenuity at its best". when we use ear plugs, dry wall plugs and cut up waste baskets etc. etc., it just doesn't get any better.  LMAO!!!!!!!

I am going to add that list.  I found an old shock buffer made for a Model 41, trimmed it down, it fits perfectly in the slot. 

Thanks again for All your input.

I bought some a few months ago, and while I have not done a large bit of dry firing, I am still using the 1st one in my 41.  Looking at it I really do not see any wear. I suspect that the tab that doubles as a empty chamber indicator and is used to remove it will wear out first.

The items from redfeather work great in Hammerli 208 as well as a high standard. They last a long time in both guns. They get chewed up in a M41.  Do you have a buddy with a 3D printer?  A guy at my local range prints them for .30 each.

If you have access to a 3D printer, I can send you a STL file to print…..not a plug, but a hammer block. Mo betta!

Hi Tong,
If you wouldn't mind sending me the STL file I would like to print out the hammer block.
I am using the yellow anchor plug for now and would love to try the hammer block!
Thanks!

I don't know how much work there would be. I would like one. There are probably a few of us that still shoot the 41's.

I have had some success 3D printing these, it gets modified based on the inside of the slide where it blocks the hammer. Works well for dry fire. Pull slide back just enough for the hammer to reset.
