    Are there any problems that can occur due to dry firing? I just walked in on my brother dry firing my gun like a maniac and I'm worried something may be wrong with it, I put a few rounds through it and it seems fine, but are there any risks to it? And if so what could be problems cause by it so I can watch out for them. As always thanks in advance guys.

    Dry firing shouldn't cause any problems. I often dry fire my heavily upgraded AEG's, and it hasn't caused any issues, so I doubt a stock AEG will be damaged by it. Just make sure that there are no BB's in the hop-up chamber and/or barrel if you do it, and never aim at anyone when dry firing.
