Not only is T4E easier to maintain, it reduces your overall training cost significantly. You can Train More and Spend Less!
T4E Product Overview
The T4E system is a full unit not a conversion or modification to an existing firearm. The rifles are CO2 powered air guns using Rubber Balls (these can be reused if collected, cleaned and inspected after firing), Powder Dust Markers and Paintball Markers all in .43 caliber. The rifles have standard AR Platform Functions, using Mil Spec Design. External furniture and accessories can be changed and added to replicate custom individual setup requirements.
Cost: The most notable advantage of the T4E system is the cost and cost to operate. The T4E system will have a cost per round fired at approx 8 cents and a sim system is between .65 to .80 cents a round fired. For less than the cost of 3000 sim rounds (approx $2000+) an agency can purchase 2 TM-4 rifles, 4 extra magazines, 200 CO2 capsules and 8000 rounds of ammo.
Safety and Accuracy: The T4E system is ideal for force on force, close quarter and active shooter training. The speed of the projectile is rated at 330 FPS allowing for accuracy ideal at 100 Feet up to 150 feet for the rubber balls. The powder and paint marking balls have the best accuracy out to 30 feet which makes them ideal for close quarters training. The impact will be felt (it hurts) but not penetrate clothing, skin or protective gear allowing use in an extreme close range. When using sim systems you are required to wear heavy body protection as the smaller rounds can penetrate regular clothing and skin that can require surgical removal. Training with T4E only requires head and face protection like that used in air soft and paintball games. To signify that it is a training weapon the magazine and parts of the stocks on the gun are blue in color. The noise generated by the T4E system is quieter, the same noise as that of a standard CO2 powered air gun. T4E cannot be converted into a real firearm, making it even safer without the risk of loading live ammunition into a training gun.
Ease of Maintenance: The cleaning of the T4E rifles are that of a standard air gun using T4E Oil “synthetic based air gun oil.” The changing of the bolt assembly (when worn at approx 3000 rounds) is a simple procedure and can be accomplished with minimal tools. The replacement of the magazine when worn out is also a simple replacement.
Cleanup: The guns are easy to disassemble, clear and clean powder or paint debris ensuring proper performance. The main factor in marking guns is keeping them clean for best function. The T4E system also allows for easier cleanup of powder and rubber balls after training in borrowed facilities such as a school classroom used on weekend training sessions.
Realistic Feel and Durability: The T4E system is designed as a 1 to 1 replica of the actual firearms with full functionality, weight and damage resistance. All the standard features work the same as a real firearm. The forward assist button on the M4 and HK 416 is the only feature that is purely cosmetic but it gives the feel of normal function. The sights are adjustable for best accuracy. The magazine has the weight of a loaded firearm magazine and is made of reinforced polymer to prevent damage from dropping during use.
Pistols: Currently the Walther PPQ 6mm Airsoft is the pistol is made in LE Blue to compliment the rifles. A line of pistols will be available in 2016 using the same .43 caliber ammo and CO2.
