FX 9mm/.38

FX 5.56 mm





These patented reduced-energy, non-lethal cartridges leave a detergent-based, water-soluble colour marking compound.

These visible impacts allow accurate assessment of simulated lethality. The cartridges are available in .38 and 9 mm calibres (for use in most weapons) and feature tactical accuracy up to 25 feet (7.6 meters). The 5.56 mm calibre is now available to military and police forces.

The 5.56 mm is tactically accurate and ballistically matched with ball cartridges to 100 feet (30 meters). No special ballistic facilities are required. They meet the need for a force-on-force and man-to-man training system that is realistic, effective, inexpensive, adaptable and fully portable.


        FX® Conversion Kits

Protective Equipment

    FX® Protective Equipment

The ''impact penalty'' delivered by its ammunition contributes to the realism of FX® interactive training.

The full line includes a head protector, a throat protector, a groin protector as well as a pants, a pair of gloves, a vest and a sleeves. These components are for use exclusively with FX® Marking Cartridges. They are comfortable and lightweight and allow participants to move as freely and naturally as possible.
