These systems, as we understand it, were used for military / police training for only a very short time, having been taken over by the Simunition and UTM systems, probably due to the expense of the system.
In the pistols a non-standard chambered barrel was used to prevent standard ammunition use. The barrel was threaded at the mouth to take a laser, which also provided blow-back to cycle the pistol. We are unsure what was used in the rifle systems, so please share if you do know.
