The most reliable gunsmith is the factory. I would contact them.

If I have not previously welcomed you to the forum, I do so now.

As for the subject of dry firing the R9, here are two links which may be of interest. Take your pick.  ;)

I personally prefer to use snap caps.

Good luck, and stay safe.
