Seems I also heard of issues with early strikers breaking, but, not sure if it was due to dry fire or not...

If you have one, could always use it, just in case...

I have a M&P 9MM and a 9MM Pro not a M&P 45 but I have to dry fire it all the time. I shoot USPSA and IDPA with them and:
"Drop your mag and show me clear"
"Slide, striker"
So I'm dry firing it after every stage of every shoot. I do know people with M&P 45's and they also have to show clean yada, yada.

I've got an M&P 45 with 3500 rounds thru it and a lot of dry firing and haven't haven't experienced a broke striker or any othe component as of yet. I don't recall seeing anything in the S&W manual discouraging dry firing for purely mechanical reasons.

I'd recommend taking a look at your striker just to be sure which model you have.

If you have the Rev 1 (first gen), I'd recommend not dryfiring. If you have the Rev B, you should have no trouble dry firing it.

If your striker is black colored, you have the old one and I'd use snap caps if you're gonna dryfire it. If the metal is shiny or at least metallic looking, you have Rev B and should have no trouble with dry fire.

Dry fire it. If (which I doubt) it does break, send it back to S&W and they will fix it and your gun will be updated to the newest striker.
