Has anything ever been discussed about letting the Bolt fly foward on an empty M14 Chamber. I know that it is considered a No No to let the slide fly foward without a loaded Mag on the 1911 Pistol but what about the M14. I seem to remember from my Service days that after our Rifles were inspected and the Officer would return the Weapon, we would pull back on the Op Rod, and snap the bolt closed and dry fire. It did not seem to cause any damage, but what did they know back then. Just Curious. BTW I always hold the OP Rod and lower the bolt slowly on an empty Chamber.
