This might be an odd confusing question but what can I do to make sure my M9 PTP which is recently just purchased is in great condition? What parts are prone to breaking? Being out of alignment? Falling out? Ive dried fired it a couple hundred times so I want to see if internally everything is good. Is dry firing a GBB fine? I know AEGs obviously not but I can't see what can damage a GBB by dry firing.

I've dry fired my M9 PTP more times than I can count. When dry firing, be sure to have an empty (both gas and bbs) magazine in the gun so that the valve knocker doesn't strike thin air, so that it has got some resistance ease when striking the valve. A few places to expect breakage after much wear and tear:
- Trigger return spring,
- Part 320, the two thin bars of the breach that align the gas nozzle on track, these will break off one at a time,
- Cylinder return springs

All of these parts are easily replaceable and cheap to replace. If you ever need help, you can always reference my teardown guide:

Hope you love your M9!
