MANTIS SHOOTING TRAINERS
With ammo pricing skyrocketing these days, you might not want to go out and practice your shot due to wanting to conserve the goods. But don’t worry… Mantis has you covered for you to practice your favorite shooting sport without having to shell out megabucks on ammo!
LASER ACADEMY TRAINING KIT
With the Laser Academy Training Kit that features guided drills and real-time feedback, it’s easy to keep your skills sharp. You can set up the system anywhere you’d like and get in quality reps with your own equipment to see results you can see and feel. There are a variety of drill options to keep things interesting and fun, making practice even more enjoyable instead of feeling like a chore.
It works by utilizing a laser training cartridge that drops in the chamber of your weapon, delivering a light beam down the barrel every time the firing pin strikes the round. With physical targets that you shoot, the laser “shots” of the system are then read by your phone or tablet and scored accordingly, per shooting mode.
Training modes offered in the free app include: Open Shooting – Single Target, Shot From Guard/Low Ready, Duel-Single Shot and Bullseye-Five-Shot. Both The Standard and Portable Laser Academy Kits include access to their entire library of PRO modes and any new ones, too. No more having to waste ammo or pay to go to a range given the flexibility and convenience of the system.
BLACKBEARD AUTO-RESETTING TRIGGER FOR AR15
With the Blackbeard Auto-Resetting Trigger for the AR15 platform from Mantis, you’ll get the most realistic training with your AR possible, using your trigger, grip and sights. You won’t need to run the recharge handle between every shot either, so no training scars or development of improper muscle memory. And the optional laser indicator also enhances your training with a visual representation of where your “shots” are without ever having to waste precious ammo.
The system is easy to install yourself as it simply replaces the AR’s bolt carrier and magazine. The magazine battery pack is good for up to 100,000 shots per charge. It’s also rated to reset as quick as 10 shots per second. Blackbeard’s variety of laser options also provides even more feedback for your shooting training since it allows you to see where your shots land on your own. It can also be paired with the Laser Academy Training System for even better performance assessment.
