The Type 3 Malfunction Round is a nylon dummy round that simulates the Type 3 Malfunction, exactly as we would experience it in reality, under live fire training conditions.
The Device Itself
The Type3MalfunctionRound® is made of a nylon plastic resin which is designed to protect the internal steel parts of the firearm from being damaged.
The Type3MalfunctionRound® takes the beating of the slide instead of the gun.
It is shaped much like an actual round but the “bullet” end of the round has 2 protruding “fins” that prevent the round from seating in the chamber of the firearm, causing the simulated type 3 double-feed malfunction.
Each Type3MalfunctionRound® will last roughly 500 shots before needing to be replaced. With too much wear, the Type3MalfunctionRound™ can stay stuck in the barrel when stripping the magazine from the firearm.
A One Of A Kind, Critical Training Tool
Malfunctions, while not very common in modern semi-automatic handguns, have the potential to stop your response in a critical incident and leave you vulnerable in a gunfight.
For generations, firearm trainers and training academies have been teaching shooters how to clear and resolve common malfunctions. The challenge comes when trying to practice the clearance technique for the Type 3 malfunction, also known as a double feed or failure to extract.
Now, this one-of-a-kind tool allows the user to simulate a double feed in the middle of a course of live fire allowing one the opportunity to FEEL the failure and practice the proper clearance technique.
How to Utilize
The Type 3 Malfunction Round is fed into the magazine along with live or dummy ammo (for live or dry fire respectively). For extra value have a friend or loved one “bury” the training round amongst your live ammo in your magazines.
When the training round feeds to the top of the magazine and your firearm attempts to feed it into the chamber it will cause a failure that feels and acts just like a real type 3 malfunction.
Performing your standard clearance technique will clear the Type 3 Malfunction round from the chamber and magazine effectively ensuring proper training and preventing any training scars.
