1. The Training Barrel provides the ability of realistic dry-fire weapon handling during practice and training but more importantly eliminates any chance for a tragic accident, such as a negligent accidental discharge. 2. The training barrel will allow full slide function which aids in tap rack manipulation drills and trigger function. 3. The training barrel allows the operator/instructor to use his/her OWN weapon by simply removing the factory barrel and inserting the high visibility yellow training barrel which is recognized as a safety color. 4. By using the training barrel one of the many key benefits is that you will be able to get good sight picture while presenting the pistol to a threat or target, this eliminates bad habits and promotes good training habits. 5. The training barrel is ideal for disarming, weapon retention, room clearing and CQB tactics. 6. While the solidly constructed training guns available today are 100% safe, they are not beneficial to teaching or demonstrating weapon manipulation along with trigger function. 7. The training barrel is lighter, smaller, and easier to transport than plastic training weapons and is made with strong impact resistant material which prevents flexing& bending; and is resistant to harsh chemicals. 8. The training barrel is less expensive and more economical than the average training weapon. 9. The training barrel has no complex parts to attach, lock/unlock, etc. It is one piece construction. No extra equipment is needed. 10. The Training Barrel works with all holsters! In the case of closed bottom holsters the barrel length can be modified to fit by just shortening the Training Barrel’s length (easily done with a hacksaw). The 19/23 barrel will also work in the 26/27, Just needs to be shortened to desired length. (Easily done with a hacksaw) 11. It makes weapons on display at trade Shows or in a gun stores 100% safe, allowing the potential client’s, student’s and customer’s to observe and handle the weapon. 12. Instructors can maintain possession of all real barrels until students have demonstrated proficiency with handling the weapon and “graduate” to the actual barrel. 13. Eliminates using annoying large steel dry fire plates at training schools. 14. The Training Barrel is backed by a 1 year warranty!

I purchased several of these items for my Glocks (17/19/26) for training (ie-slap, rack, go/magazine changing drills/weapons retention/trigger control/etc...).
I have had to send back 2 sets of all three models due to sheering of the barrel stud (I purchased them from Brownells who has been awesome about the returns and even paying for my postage).
While I believe that the concept is great (a yellow replacement barrel so no accidental discharges during training), I don't believe that Blade-Tech has perfected the polymer mixture to be tough enough to withstand the riggers of heavy training (with the recoil springs). They may want to look into re-enforcing the barrel stud more, changing the polymer mixture, or going with aluminum.
