SAFETY

SAFETY & TECHNOLOGY

#fancy-title-59253de28af08 a{ color: #393836; }

With lower velocities and projectile weight, the UTM Target Shooting Round is designed for complete safety and reliability, bringing target practice with your weapon to a whole new level – without the need for a range and free from live fire restrictions. The UTM Target Shooting Round utilizes the same core technology the U.S. Military, Special Forces and Law Enforcement Agencies have been using in their operational weapons during training for nearly a decade.

SPECIFICATIONS
  • Fail-Safe is achieved by utilizing a 3mm offset firing pin design, which will only work with the rim fire primer used in the CTA
  • Realistic cyclic rates in semi-automatic firearms which match that of “live” fire.
  • Muzzle energy with an average of less than 3ft/lbs.
  • Consistent safe shot to shot muzzle velocities (Average of 375fps) are essential for safe indoor/outdoor target training.
  • Minimal noise and emissions, train virtually anywhere!

The UTM Target Shooting Conversion is uniquely designed to prevent the discharge of traditional 5.56mm/.223 “live” ammunition (5.56 NATO, 5.56 x 45mm, and .223 Remington). Fail-Safe is achieved by utilizing a 3mm offset firing pin design, which will only work with the rim fire powerload used in the UTM Target Ammunition, but not with a “live” center fire cartridge. In the event a 5.56mm “live” cartridge is chambered and the trigger is pulled, the Conversions offset firing pin will strike outside the primer pocket of the 5.56mm “live” round. This makes it impossible to detonate the “live” ammunition in the UTM converted weapon.

UTM Conversion Firing Pin will strike outside of the primer pocket of traditional 5.56 NATO & .223 Remington “live” ammunition

The UTM Target Shooting Round is the first technology specifically designed, engineered, and expertly manufactured for reality-based practice at home!  UTM’s Patented Two Primer Cartridge System is the first to isolate the large amount of operational energy needed to cycle the firearm from the small amount of energy required for propelling the UTM Target Ammunition projectile. The isolated primers allow for total control of the cartridge energies providing consistent velocities necessary for improved accuracy and controlled impact.

The expanding cartridge combined with the UTM Conversion creates a blow-back system that realistically and reliably cycles the firearm.

The UTM Target System conversion is designed so the weapon’s dust cover will not close so the blue indicator of a safe converted weapon is always visible.

  • Plastic projectile weighs less than 1 gram
  • Average velocity of 375 fps at the muzzle
  • Outstanding Short Range Accuracy, .223/5.56mm ammunition = 30mm (1.18in) at 30m/32 yes (mean radius)
  • No Need for Hearing Protection – 113db
  • No Gunpowder – primer actuated systems
  • UNIQUE patented, proprietary and exclusive dual primer system and projectile driving band system.
  • The UTM Target Shooting Round Conversion WILL NOT fire standard .223/5.56mm live rounds because of its offset firing pin design
  • Cartridge technology has over a 99% reliability as certified by the U.S. Army’s Picatinny Arsenal

#divider-59253de2ac054 .divider-inner{ border-width:1px; height:1px; margin: 0 auto; }
  • UTM MMR converted weapons must be fired “clean and dry” in the weapon bore and barrel. NO LUBRICATION IN THE BARREL.
  • Appropriate eye protection (safety glasses or goggles) is mandatory.
  • UTM assumes no responsibility for injuries, loss or damage resulting from misuse of this or any of its products.
WARNINGS
When converting back to ‘Live’ use, ensure that the chamber and bore have been cleaned, cleared of all debris, objects or projectiles and inspected before firing a live round. Failure to ensure that the barrel of the host weapon is free form obstruction could result in damage to the barrel and/or injury to the operator. *You must read and understand the Owner’s Manuals for both the UTM Conversion Kit and your firearm. * The UTM Target Shooting Round should only be used in a well maintained, properly functioning firearm, which has been converted using a UTM Conversion Kit. *The DRY BORE and the CHAMBER of the host firearm MUST BE CLEANED AND INSPECTED, WITH NO OIL IN THE BARREL, prior to firing UTM Target Shooting Round. *With the firearm unloaded, ALWAYS clean the barrel after using UTM Target Shooting Round, in order to remove any possible obstructions. Failure to do so prior to returning to conventional ammunition could result in SERIOUS INJURY/DEATH, and/or damage to the firearm. *All firearms that have been converted using the UTM Conversion Kit must be treated as a live firearm.  Follow all standard firearm safety rules. All users and bystanders must wear eye protection. *If the firearm fails to fire, point the muzzle in a safe direction, wait 30 seconds and unload it carefully, avoiding the muzzle. *Discharging firearms in poorly ventilated areas, cleaning firearms, or handling ammunition may result in exposure to lead, a substance known to cause cancer, birth defects, reproductive harm and illness or injury.  Use in properly ventilated areas only.  Wash hands thoroughly after any exposure. *The buyer and/or user assume any and all risk resulting from any usage of this product other than as intended or instructed by UTM. *You must be 18 or older to purchase rifle ammunition. *Check local ordinances regulating firearms discharge.
