Yes, dry firing too much can be bad... maybe the marker's detents wear out or the bolt gets scuffed up, but they shouldn't be breaking under any normal circumstances. In other words, if a pillow or blanket were used to quietly dry fire almost any other marker, no one would expect the bolt to snap. It is a bad design and/or material, and by the number of posts here I'm thinking it's more than the 1/10000 number someone quoted a Dye rep saying.
