New SIMUNITION® Drop-In/Replacement Kits for Glocks.

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This was my first stop at TREXPO East, since it was located inside
Tactical & Survival Specialties Inc.’s area, at the front of the
hall. SNC Technologies Inc. (SNC TEC), a Canadian company, is, of course, famous for their
line of specialty training ammunition and marking cartridges. In fact,
they’re currently the industry leader in this field. Lou Solis,
SIMUNITION®’s East Coast manager, showed me one of the company’s new
marker cartridge conversion kits for the Glock pistols. The new kit,
consisting of either a proprietary barrel and spring assembly and
replacement magazine for the G17, or replacement slide, barrel and
spring assembly, and replacement magazine for the G19 or G22, turns any
of these guns into a Glock 17T training pistol, without the need for
any tools.

For Glock 17’s, things are easiest, since all that is required is a
drop-in barrel and spring assembly. For Glock 19’s and Glock 22’s,
SIMUNITION® was forced to engineer a replacement slide and barrel
assembly (along with spring),because the barrel replacement alone was
not sufficient for proper functioning of the weapon. It should be noted
that there is currently no kit available for the G23. The engineering
of replacement slides is a recent development that has occured since
the TREXPO East exhibition.

One of the interesting feature of the replacement SIMUNITION® barrel is
the safety hole located on the right side of the chamber area. This
hole permits the escape of high pressure gases in the unlikely case
that someone is stupid enough to try to fire a real 9mm round through
the SIMUNITION® barrel. The hole will essentially keep the gun from
completely grenading in the shooters hand. The new drop in units are
less expensive than arming all the trainees with 17T’s. Once converted,
students can fire Simunition’s proprietary 9mm training round through
the gun. DefRev hopes to soon have a couple of these units for T&E.
