I won't dry fire my MKII whether it is ok or not. I tend to use snap caps for just about all or my guns. One thing Ruger told after a repair is to NEVER use the slide lock as a bolt release
"I believe that people have a right to decide their own destinies; people own themselves. I also believe that, in a democracy, government exists because (and only so long as) individual citizens give it a 'temporary license to exist'—in exchange for a promise that it will behave itself. In a democracy, you own the government—it doesn't own you."- Frank Zappa

Bought a Mark II with the 10 inch barrel for $200 around 2000.

Breech was peened due to no firing pin stop.

Five minutes with a fine file and a couple "plunk" tests, it was good to go.

No failures to feed, fire, or extract.

No catastrophic failures.

TK shows them as InStock.
To be vintage it's gotta be older than me!

Five minutes with a fine file ...
It's your gun, but you really don't want to fix it that way. Use a chamber iron/swage (see my earlier post) to push the metal back in place rather than remove the metal with a file.
Do you know about the TEXAS State Rifle Association?
