What is the best way to dry fire practice with a Sig MPX?

I own a Sig Sauer MPX and in light of the ammo scarcity and my need to practice I started to investigate options of dry fire practice with my MPX. Since an MPX is different from handguns, those nice SIRT practice guns don’t help me and a SIRT bold is only available for an AR-15. Then there are a number of laser systems available but I have a hard time telling which ones are good. I was also hoping to find a solution where I do not have to pull the charge handle every time after I pulled the trigger.

Do any of you guys own a MPX? How do you dry fire you gun? What system are you using? I would really appreciate your help.

PS: Does dry firing your MPX damage your gun?

Dry firing a quality gun will never hurt it. BEST TRAINING IS THE snap caps

Dry firing? Oh that’s easy. Just crank up the thermostat to 90, open the bolt, jam some sand up in there and wait about 20 minutes. Then try to shoot it :relieved:

… what?

Lol, okay but seriously. You can buy snap caps. They’re fake bullets ment for dry firing and whatever other use you can find for them. That said, it might be okay to dry fire it as is? Read the manual for it, or ask Sig Sauer. Unfortunately to my knowledge you’re going to have to rack the gun every time to reset the trigger. There’s no other way to do it at the moment.

Good luck!

I wonder the same thing for my Sig 226! How many times can I dry fire without causing damage to the pistol? I’m under the impression that dry fire will do no damage due to design but truly unsure. Any Pros on here!? Going up for my CCL renewal and need to practice some but don’t want to use all my ammo since it’s hard to find and is so costly!! I’m not a range rat but would like to be one. Wish I had access to a private outdoor range. Tempted to set up a bullet trap in my basement but that may have some legal ramifications within the city limits!!

First, I’m jealous. The MPX is a great firearm. You won’t hurt it by dry firing or wear it excessively. I don’t know of any system available for it that you won’t have to rack it every time you press the trigger. I’ve been using a laser bullet (cheap from eBay or amazon). And downloaded the free itarget app. It works really well for helping trigger prep and follow through. I have an ISPC race gun with thousands of dry fire cycles with and without the laser and it is still tight accurate and dead reliable. That said, dry fire sessions start by being certain the gun is safe, safe, safe.
