SIRT GLOCK-like Trainer

Here's the Next Level Training gun we'll be using in TBD next season for our demos. I've been working with it for the last couple of months as my Office Dry-firing Utility and I'll be using it extensively to get ready for the upcoming IDPA Worlds in Florida, which we'll be filming for SG 2012. I believe this is a great leap forward for non-range training for several reasons...you can see your "hit"...you've got a couple of different options for training your trigger finger...you can work reloads into your dry training...and best of all from my position as a television producer, it's NOT a live gun! You can't make it go BANG.

This is important to me because it allows us to demonstrate and even show "hits" without violating any of the four safety rules. As you know, we do our TBD scenarios with Airsoft guns, then CGI in muzzle blasts. When we're working with LEOs, we're always obsessively making sure that the faux GLOCK is in the holster and the live GLOCK is locked in separate room. We've demo'ed a lot with blue/red solid plastic guns, some fitted with lasers to show trajectory, and I'm always looking for a better solution.

We'll no doubt add the upcoming Next Level AR trainer to our TBD arsenal as soon as they become available.

How does the trigger feel? Like a Glock I would hope.

Great concept, if somewhat pricey. It would only take about 2000 trigger pulls to pay for itself and that is cheap, considering the convenience. Too bad they don’t offer it in a “real” gun, like a 1911. LOL Glocks point about a foot high for me. Guess I will have to stick to my CT lasers as a marker along with some old Daisy Quick Skill targets and cartridges. I managed to acquire a set in 38, 9mm, 40, 44 and 45 along with a few targets and they work well for practicing 1st shot placement, or multiple shot in non single action firearms. It is interesting to note one of the laser bore sight cartridge manufacturers now offer a target system and cartridges. The wheel keeps coming around, with old ideas showing back up.

Great for someone who can write off the expense - like a TV producer or paid trainer - but if I'm going to drop that kind of money, I might as well just buy another Glock that goes bang!

Maybe if we're lucky the ATF will reclassify that as a firearm.

are you using the ar bolt carrier replacement? sounds like the trigger resets in both the glock and ar versions... is it a two stage trigger?

More importantly, will it show hits on yer own foot?

Glock's catalog states that all their versions of training(fake) Glocks are only available to police and military, not for civilian sale.
