HOW IT WORKS

Dry Fire vs. Semi-Automatic DryFire

Each pull of the trigger will activate the CO2-powered mechanism to cycle your pistol’s slide.

We call this Semi-Automatic DryFire.

  • Your hands will feel a realistic “kick,” which will force you to grip the pistol properly. 
     
  • Your trigger will reset for the next shot. 
     
  • Your eyes will need to reacquire the sight picture for the next shot. 

 

 


Practical operating conditions include a combination of temperature and mechanical factors that allow you to get the best performance every time:

  • The amount and temperature of CO2 in your source tank. We recommend keeping your CO2 tank at room temperature or slightly warmer. 
  • The temperature of the mechanism itself will be influenced by the environmental temperature, but also by how much and how rapidly you shoot. 
  • The temperature of your environment impacts both, so keep your CO2 warm or at least temperate, and take short breaks to allow your CoolFire Trainer barrel to return to ambient temperature.
  • Striker tip condition will give you consistent shots. Click here for details about maintenance instructions (page 9 of the user manual). 
  • The mechanical condition of your pistol must be in a good serviceable condition, including lubrication of the slide rails, and the condition of the firing pin.

 


How the CoolFire Trainer Works

The CoolFire Trainer System converts your real pistol into a highly effective, safe training tool. It will replace two parts of your pistol:

The Conversion Barrel replaces your live fire barrel inside your real pistol. Each pull of the trigger will activate the CO2-powered mechanism to cycle your pistol’s slide – we call this Semi-Automatic Dry Fire.

Features:

  • Each barrel fits precisely inside your pistol’s slide and frame for over 130 models of pistols. 
    • FYI: WILL NOT be an exact replica of your OEM barrel.
    • Heavily modified firearms, i.e. extended or light-weight firing pins, tuned springs, and aftermarket triggers may hamper the ability to properly activate the                CoolFire Trainer system.
  • Standard round capacity under practical operating conditions is the same or greater as your live fire magazine capacity:
    • 20+ shots for typical long-slide pistols.
    • 18+ shots for typical full size pistols
    • 15+ shots for typical compact pistols,
    • 10+ shots for typical subcompact pistols
  • If you want even more firepower, see the optional Rapid Fill Adapter and Extend-a-Shot for additional capacity.
  • The barrel features a replaceable plastic tip to protect your firing pin against excessive wear 
  • Can be used as-is, or with optional muzzle attachments for additional functionality an training value:
    • Basic lasers
    • Expanded capacity with Rapid Fill Adapter or Extend-a-Shot mock suppressor, with optional lasers

The Recoil Assembly replaces your pistols factory spring.

Features:

  • Optimized for the best balance of highly realistic recoil, maximum shot capacity, and realistic manual manipulation of your slide.
  • Depending on the design of you pistol, our items will replace your pistol’s recoil spring, your recoil spring and rod, or the entire recoil spring assembly.

Fill Devices

Allow you to charge CO2 into the conversion barrel from your preferred type of CO2 tank.

FILL DEVICE: SODA MAKER (Product Code: CASMA1)

Use with Sodamaker CO2 bottles – popular brands include SodaStream®, DrinkMate®, or SodaSense® as they are the most convenient for most customers because of their availability in local retail stores. 

FILL DEVICE: PAINTBALL (Product Code: CAPBA1)

PAINTBALL CO2 bottles can be used with either of the following fill devices:

  • FILL DEVICE: PAINTBALL 1 (HAND HELD) (Product Code: CAPBA1)
  • FILL DEVICE: PAINTBALL 2 (BENCH-MOUNTABLE CHARGING STATION) (Product Code: CACS11) 

FILL DEVICE: 90 GRAM (Product Code: CAA902)

If you wish to use 90 gram / 88 gram / 3.2 oz CO2 cartridges, please use our FILL DEVICE: 90 GRAM (Product Code: CAA902)

 

NEWLY AVAILABLE is our CGA320 Fill Device (Product Code: CACGA320) for filling your CoolFire Trainer directly for a SIPHON TUBE type CO2 tank.


Optional Extras - Enhance your Package:
