I have been using centerfire designs for months. But I don’t have any idea about rimfires Recently I came to know that when we do dry fire in a rimfire rifles it ill affect the gun’s performance because of its brittle firing pins. If we do so how many rounds of dryfire will it take to affect the gun. Or is there any Gun Customization tricks to make it more reliable
Every one of them is different. The problem comes from the fact that if there is not a cartridge rim for the pin to hit, it can hit the (usually) much harder metal of the barrel where the rim should be. I've seen the firing pin peened and/or worn down by this more often than actually breaking - that tends to happen (IME & all that) in older weapons and can be just as common in centerfire weapons as well.
Using an expended case as an expedient snap cap helps. There are actual snapcaps for rimfires made as well.
Really though, I'd simply suggest not doing dry fire and instead do all practice live at the range with an instructor available.
As wlewisiii pointed out it depends. When I was into competition using Winchester, Remington, and Anshutz match grade rifles I dried fired routinely with no ill effects. However with my Marlin 39A I broke the pin. I’d recommend contacting the manufacturer, otherwise refrain from doing so.
I’ve had an old Rimfire rifle break it’s firing pin as well, unfortunately sometimes it’s impossible to avoid. When I was pistol shooting, part of the routine for clearing a pistol was to ‘Unload and show clear’ by dry firing the handgun down range.
Even with snap caps, that leaves one in the chamber as the simple action of clearing it out will cock the striker again.

It depends on the weapon itself. My 10/22's manual stated dry fire was fine and would not cause damage. With my old P22, dry fire was fine only if the safety was engaged (double action trigger still operated while on safe).
I used to dry fire my 10/22 when I was young and stupid, but I never had any issues. Conversely, my dad has a .22 Luger and dry firing it can definitely damage it. Has nothing to do with the firing pin, though: On a rimfire, there's increased odds of the firing pin striking the face of the chamber and breaking off that way, whereas in a centerfire it just strikes empty air. Dry fire all you want with your centerfires; I'd avoid doing it with rimfires if you can. As has been said, a snap cap is cheap insurance.
I have to agree with the "it depends" consensus. Some firearms are designed to be dry fired with no ill effects (the M16.AR15 is a good example of a centerfire that is safe to dry fire). I know that Marlin 60 should not be dry fired, nor should NAA mini-revolvers. As for the rest of them, if you want to know, all you have to do is call the manufacturer on the phone and they will gladly give you the proper advice.
Regardless, using a snap cap is the sure way to be sure in all cases.

lebleuchevalier: I just got a new Windlass sword and was surprised some of these are coming pre-sharpened from Museum Replicas. There's a big secondary bevel, but it came nice and sharp.

LoE: Lemme guess... wants a private check, no refunds. Shares stock photos. Doesn't want accountability. But has exactly whatever it is you're looking for.

LoE: Never selling it himself of course. Just a zero post guy that "knows" of someone who has one, if you'll reach out to him privately. I get tired of the scam artists. Wish they'd get arrested.
