Default Picked up a new M&P 22 today , got a few questions for the experts PLEASE ...

Just got home with it about an hour go , started reading but I still can't figure out what the two little allen wrenches and one small regular wrench are for ? Also when you pull the slide back it cocks the gun and the manual says , Do not dry fire it. Question: is it bad to have tension on the firing pin for a long period of time ? Is there a way to release the tension without dry firing ? Also which spray degreaser is best to get all that factory grease out of the gun ? Do I need to be careful which cleaner I use with the plastic frame ? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

I'm no expert, but I read the manual.

The wrench is for the threaded barrel and the allen wrench is for the sight adjustment set screw.

To safely dry fire; male sure chamber is empty, insert empty magazine, hold the slide back about one eighth of an inch, or slightly less and pull the trigger. This will allow the hammer to drop without the firing pin hitting the breech face.
Use a plastic safe cleaner on any place you might get spray on it. For the bore, run the cleaning rod in vertically, bore facing downward. That way bore cleaner won't get on anything it shouldn't.

Tension on the spring won't hurt it at all. They wear out from constant use; working the spring from compressed to uncompressed. I have some old Mausers from the 1920's that have had their springs compressed for many years and they function fine. Get some 22lr snap caps if you want to dry fire which is a good way to get to know the trigger.

The allen wrenches are for the sight screws.
