Live to Laser
No Permanent Modification
VirTra’s simulated firearm recoil kits are designed to convert a live firearm into a simulation-ready weapon without permanent modification. The drop-in laser recoil kit is installed in the trainee’s duty weapon without permanent modification, while the CO2 magazine supplies realistic recoil for an immersive training experience.
Drop-in Laser Recoil Kits
Real firearms are tetherless and so are VirTra’s drop-in laser recoil systems. These kits produce powerful recoil action, operate at the correct cyclical rate and are easily installed in the trainee’s own weapon—without causing permanent modification.
By simulating the most realistic recoil without the obstruction of pressure supply tubes or wires, trainees are allowed a full range of movement. With no harmful gasses, blank cartridges or lead deposits, trainees can easily and safely improve shooting skills at a fraction of the cost and under any weather condition. This translates into a highly functional recoil kit with the best performance in the industry.

VirTra Refill Station
Proprietary System That Pumps It Up
VirTra utilizes liquid CO2 because of its density and volatility at 900+ psi, which provides the most intense weapon recoil in the industry. Combined with a proprietary refill station, this becomes the winning combination VirTra’s recoil kits are known for. Pistol and rifle magazines are quickly and efficiently refilled through the Refill Station—a tabletop device—that keeps training sessions running smoothly. CO2 magazines are cost-effective ( as low as .03 cents per shot), safe and environmentally-friendly, as the magazine’s ability to refill cuts down the cost and disposal of spent CO2 cylinders.
CO2 Tank and Nozzle
More Pounds Per Pressure
The CO2 Tank provides CO2 to the Refill Station, which then refills the empty magazines. Extra CO2 tanks may be purchased during heavy training sessions. This item ships empty and the customer is responsible for filling the tank. It is important that proper caution is exercised when handling pressurized devices.
Training Specialist and Use of Force Expert
What made us choose VirTra was the options it had that would enhance what we were currently doing. We saw there was a lot more application, more realism and opportunity to integrate some of the stuff we saw coming related to the force option from verbal de-escalation all the way through lethal force.
