SIMULATED WEIGHT AND CENTER OF GRAVITY OF A LIVE FIRE PISTOL
The SIRT Training Pistol 110 Pro is designed to have a dry weight of 24 ounces with the center of gravity positioned slightly vertical of the trigger pin. (When engaging at full speed transitions and draws, a simulated weight and center of gravity is imperative for training to accelerate and decelerate the pistol while engaging in precise fine motor movements).
BODY MOVEMENT Maximize deceleration while maintaining control of the pistol to teach yourself to present the pistol and prep the trigger to minimize time to placing shots on the target.
LOW IMPACT – SHOCK ABSORBING MAGAZINE Magazine can be dropped on many types of flooring surfaces without damage.
TRAIN GUN HANDLING: DRAWS AND RELOADS The integrated lasers allow for proper training of draws of various pistolcraft skill sets. The SIRT Training Pistol comes with a weighted magazine to simulate the weight and center of gravity of 10 rounds of 124 grain 9mm ammunition, a fully loaded 15 round .40 caliber magazine with 180 grain bullets.
Built tough with sturdy steel construction, the SIRT Laser Training Pistol looks and feels like the real thing by matching the size, weight, and center of gravity of the live fire pistol. In addition, the SIRT Laser Training Pistol even offers a host of features including weighted training magazine and replaceable sights.
