So some of you are saying all Rugers can be dry fired without damage. What provision do they have to prevent the firing pin from peening the chamber face of a rimfire?
We don't say it. Ruger does. From the Ruger FAQ's on their web-site. As well as their owners manuals.

Can I dry fire my Ruger revolver?
Yes. All Ruger revolvers can be dry fired without damage, and dry firing can be useful to familiarize the owner with the firearm. However, be sure any firearm is completely unloaded before dry firing!

Can I dry fire my Ruger P-Series and .22 pistols?
Yes. All Ruger pistols can be dry fired without damage, and dry firing can be useful to familiarize the owner with the firearm. However, be sure any firearm is completely unloaded before dry firing!
Now, how do they prevent it? The firing pins travel far enough to hit the rim of the cartridge, but not far enough to hit the chamber face.
