    Just came across this while browsing some Glock accessories, the Magic Bullet Laser Ammo training device, along with the Trigger Reset Kit. :wow: I'm wondering if any of you here at glocktalk have experience with this device.

    I don't have first-hand experience with that particular product, but I've used the LaserLyte Laser Training System (LTS) Cartridge and Target which is a similar device. It's another alternative to investigate. See this LaserLyte video: [plain]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PTwK_9pIhG4[/plain]

    The GlockStore.com offering is actually the SureStrike™ Dry Fire Training System by Laser Ammo Ltd. The features of the SureStrike system I like are; 1) the adapters for different pistol calibers and even a 12 gauge shotgun, 2) just the end cap alone can be replaced when the integrated snap cap switch wears out (warrantied for 5000 strikes), 3) the standard end cap can be replaced with a constant-on bore sight adapter, and 4) the safety pipe provides visual proof at the muzzle that the pistol is unloaded and configured with the training gear.

    The GlockStore.com Trigger Reset Kit is the first I've seen that includes a kit firing pin and spring that replaces the stock firing pin and actually engages the firing pin and fp spring in the practice trigger pull. The earlier trigger reset kits that have been available for years don't engage the firing pin at all, thus the feel of the practice trigger pull is less realistic. Kudos to GlockStore for their unique new design.

    It should be noted that it's only necessary to pull the slide back about 1/4 inch and release to reset the stock trigger for dry-fire practice. Maybe not as convenient between dry-fire shots, but that's much less expensive than the reset trigger kit, no installation required and 100% realistic. :) The laser training cartridges (SureStrike or LaserLyte) don't have a rim so they aren't extracted when the slide is pulled back. The "old school" trigger reset technique also leaves the pistol ready for live fire without a trigger swap required which is a consideration if your pistol serves for home defense.

    I've thought about getting the GlockStore Trigger Reset Kit just as an experiment to evaluate it with the LaserLyte Laser Training Cartridge. It will work with either the SureStrike or LaserLyte cartridge since both are activated by impact of the firing pin.
