Drop-in firearms conversion kits
The Dvorak weapon insert system is a drop-in, air-activated recoil system for semi-automatic and automatic firearms. The system allows you to temporarily modify your personal live firearm to function as a laser pulse simulator (note that Dvorak kits do not provide training feedback as with BlueFire or tethered weapon simulators). It utilizes compressed gas or training CO2 to simulate recoil by acting on the gun's bolt or slide to "cycle" the gun. An integrated laser device is incorporated and is used with the simulator. Each "shot" is initiated by the strike of the unmodified hammer, producing both recoil and a laser pulse.
Dvorak kits are available in two models, the Air Recoil System (ARS) and the Tetherless Recoil System (TRS).
- The TRS uses a self-contained gas supply (shown in the photo above). The system uses standard disposable 12g CO2 cartridges.
- The ARS kits use an external gas supply, typically worn on the belt. The weapon is connected to the gas bottle using a small, thin hose.
Dvorak kits differ from standard simulator weapons in that they provide recoil, but are not electronically connected to the system. Dvorak weapons will recoil as long as the gas supply lasts. They will not lock back the bolt/slide when the weapon would normally be out of ammo. Dvorak weapons cannot be jammed and do not have sensors to allow the instructor to determine the current status of the weapon. Dvorak kits are not recommended for high-usage training environments. Using these kits results in wear and tear on a live weapon whereas standard simulator weapons have been specifically designed and engineered for a long life as a training weapon.
