Simunition® believes that realism is the most important aspect of effective law-enforcement and military training. Based on the concept of realistic training, Simunition® has developed conversion kits which allow users to train safely with their own service weapons and duty equipment in single shot, burst or full-automatic mode. These innovative and high-quality kits produce realistic recoil and ensure the proper operation and cycling of converted weapons with FX®, SecuriBlank™ and CQT® training ammunition.



      Most Simunition® conversion kits are easy to install and require no special tools. Simple, yet reliable and safe, these kits require replacing the duty barrel on most pistols and the upper receiver for rifles and carbines, installing safety rings in revolvers and a safety adapter in shotguns. Weapons can be quickly converted back to operational status once training is over. The kits are made from the same type of high-strength materials as duty weapons and are designed with various safety features to help preclude the chambering and firing of lethal, live ammunition.

New Simunition® conversion kits are constantly being designed, tested and qualified. These new designs are patent protected.

No special ballistic infrastructure or sophisticated bullet trap devices are required.
