Congrats and keep us posted on the new RIA 1911-22 (with required pics of course).
I'm not one of those "obsessed" individuals who sing the gospel of NEVER EVER EVER dry fire, but I will say it's not something I would do too frequently with your RIA (potential for firing pin damage etc.).
I personally have only known one guy that ever had to replace parts due to too much dry firing (one of those things I read about a lot but have only seen once in thirty years). That said and because I don't like to spend needlessly avoidable money (translation=I'm CHEAP
), I dry fire only my air-soft replicas.
