Even some rimfires may be dry-fired. I have shot and dry-fired a Colt Cadet, and the striker is a big, solid chunk of Stainless steel, with a hefty stop collar on it. The firing pin itself is integral with the striker and is cone-shaped from about 1/4" diameter at the base. The tip is machined for line contact with the cartridge rim. You could hammer it into a wall and it would not hurt it. It's beefy and reliable as it can be. Don't know why Colt stopped making them.
