Anybody have experience with this? My Googlefu only pulls up ads from the creator. Reasonable price if it does what it says it does.

I wonder how it works. I'd be interested to try one depending on the pricing...

ETA - Looked through their site a bit and saw it was $99.

The video at the bottom of the order page explained how it worked. I am still thinking about but the price is not too bad if it really works as advertised.

Curious if the trigger actually clicks and sych as a normal trigger

According to the video posted he would like connector and spring info when you order, I'm guessing he tunes it to match closely with your actual trigger. Interesting.

He needs to do a kickstarter like IO Covers did (Tangodown or Laserlyte or someone would probably buy it from him, like TD did with the IO). I'd much rather these get mass produced and sell for $45-50 apiece, since it's just a clicker build into a mag--for $99 I want a clicker AND a laser flash! ;o)

I may try one of these. I'll contact the maker when I get a chance to get some info on how they match the trigger spring and connector type. I'll post back when I get more info...

Keep us posted. Also ask about weight. I've been using my spare sirt mag in my g17 when dry firing while my sirt is getting some custom work to it, and I really like the feeling of the weighted mag when doing dry fire.

Also you by east central ohio? if so might bug ya to meet up and try it out if you get one.

Buy cheap Korean mag.
Remove spring and follower.
Fill bottom with plumbers putty.

= Weighted dry fire mag that will not lock the slide back for under $10.

Still racking the slide every time. Which is what this fella is trying to over come.

I sent an email to the company and have not heard back yet. I asked about how the trigger pull weight is configured and if it is user adjustable if one would like to make it lighter or heavier. I also asked about the weight and lead time and so far no answers.

I also tried to call them several times and the call would just fail. Seems like the number is no longer working.

Until I hear back from I will not be placing an order. As far as I can tell this company does not exist outside their web site.

Let us know if you hear back from your email.

I don't want to bombard the guy's inbox with "hey are you really in business" messages.

Clever device. Good news for the keepers of safe queens who don't like to dry fire because they fear it will break something. It doesn't actually reset the striker in the gun, just moves the trigger back into a firing position.

The advantage is in being able to repeatedly pull the trigger, vs. having to cycle the slide after each pull. Any idea what the trigger pull is? Comparable would be slick.

Great. That would be a great tool for practicing at home if the trigger pull was close to normal.

Close to normal for what though? A stock trigger? One where someone changed the connector and springs? With the millions of spring/connector combos that people have in Glocks, it just isn't possible to match all. If the break and reset do not exactly match that of your pistol, your dryfire practice will do more harm than good IMHO.

I disagree. I have more than one pistol. They all have different triggers. So long as I get some resistance and a reset I'm GTG. In the opening post it said something about him wanting to know about your trigger. Assume that's so he can tune his device?

See, if he didn't have such a bag of suck for a website we might have the answer to some of these questions.

Won't solve everything but if I can draw and run through a course of fire in my basement I would be happy.

The biggest danger that I see is if the reset is shorter than your pistol. With thousands of rounds of dry-fire practice, you will learn this reset point. When you go to fire your gun with live ammo, you will short stroke the trigger.

I do this with a USP LEM trigger. Since it has a longer reset than other pistols that I own, I short stroke it; makes you look like a real dumb-ass too.

Okay, here's a reply to my initial questions.

"Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, the DryFireMag is built with a Glock 17 length mag body. It works great in my Glock 19.

The trigger pull is about 5.5 pounds. When I make each DryFireMag, I design the reset spring to be as light as my pistol's trigger will reset. If you are mechanically inclined, I can provide another spring for you to cut for a lighter trigger pull for your custom settings.

The magazine is weighted to feel like a loaded magazine. "


I just fired back a another email asking if the trigger pull and reset are shorter when using the Dryfire Mag. I will post back again when I hear back...

I have one of the blue plastic inert mags for loading and racking the slide but then I can only pull the trigger once.

I'm curious to see if this guy answers.

Just pull your slide slightly out of battery. There is a sweet spot in there. Pretty cool.

I also use the zip tie method but I really want to feel the break and the reset.

BTW here is the reply on my questions about the trigger pull and reset length.

"The trigger pull is the same. The reset currently is a little longer. I have a design change that may shorten it. No one has noticed and objected to the current design.

Thanks for the questions,

I received my DryFire Mag today.

I'll be putting it through some testing and writing a review on it. I DID pay for it so there won't be any bias from me.

I had a bit of trouble getting it to seat correctly in the gun, the part that was supposed to go behind the trigger bar wasn't. I messed with it a bit and now it's functioning correctly. Initial impression is good. It has a "clicker" in it so every time you pull the trigger it clicks (almost like a dog training clicker, if not exactly. ). I'm not a big Glock guy but it's working so far. I'll bring it to work tomorrow and use a trigger pull gauge to see where it is at.
