    Nothing wrong with a good or worn in GI trigger.
    Anybody who has shot my service rifle builds will testify to my nice triggers.

    Too much can take off the case hardening so be careful.

    As above, nope. I don't touch them. Only dry fire the lower build a few hundred times to wear it in while watching TV etc.

    Sure way to piss the wife off!

    Isn't that an easy way to eventually crack the lower

    Crack the lower? How?

    Dry firing is part of the AR-15 drills. I have heard of damaging firing pins from excessive dry firing on some rifles (unless you use a snap cap) but not AR-15's.

    I think he must be thinking with the upper and lower separated, the hammer would slam into the back of the mag well..big no no

    That's what I saw on a midway usa video. Seemed fairly convincing as it always sounds like a fairly decent whack when I dry fire.

    Correct, that's why you shouldn't allow the hammer to hit the back of the mag well.

    Yes 100% agree with this, also can damage/snap the bolt catch.
