If it didn't set off the primer then the firing pin didn't stop on the firing pin retaining pin #57, so the o-ring did its job. What's cool is if you use a laser cartridge for practice at home the firing pin will still set off the laser, with the o-ring in place.

O Rings, Schmoe Rings!  LOL  Get your good snap caps and dry fire away!  You'll be a better shooter in the long run.  Learn how to jerk the trigger without moving the firearm.  You'll be good to go :-)
If you find yourself in a fair gunfight, your tactics stink!

Hello,
Well  Ihave been dry firing CZ TS 40 for 3 years on 5 days per a week.
it was about 200 clicks that I did during that training.
That is 1000 clicks for a week.
5 years and 52 weeks each is 260000 clicks in 5 years- I have ruined hammer+ sear
It worth it.

I bought snap caps, then dummy rounds with rubber/plastic-like inserts (I have this feeling that the primers on snapcaps get dented and lose their buffering ability whereas the polymer material used in dummy rounds seems to hold up better).
Maybe ideally it would be to use dummy rounds with polymer primers 'and' the oring.
This way you get the weight of real bullets, can practice tap-rack-bangs with seemingly more realistic feedback, and the o-ring gives additional 'protection'.

Don't overlook the TRS as discussed earlier in this thread.  It is an often overlooked hazard of dry firing I've come to learn;  the hard way! At least on the 75 platform.

depends on the model. CZ states that a P0 7 can be dry fired for practice. However an older model CZ 52 would eventually brake. Look up the model and manufactures model. Or ask some of the great minds here.
