LaserLyte has introduced a safe training aid for those looking to practice dry fire at home. A drop-in barrel-shaped laser replaces the factory barrel of your firearm, and not only prevents discharges but also acts as a snap cap for your firing pin:
Cottonwood, Ariz. – LaserLyte®, innovators in firearms laser technologies, proudly introduces the LT-GM, the Laser Trainer barrel for the GLOCK 19 and 23. The Laser Trainer Barrel shoots a laser dot simulating bullet impact and providing feedback to the shooter.
Now, LaserLyte® provides a no-excuse, safe training aid with a sound-activated training barrel that replaces the barrel in your GLOCK. The Laser Trainer Barrel does not and will not accept ammo making it a perfectly safe anytime/anywhere training tool. An additional benefit to the Laser Trainer Barrel is as a visual reminder to other persons within the area, that the GLOCK is unloaded and in a safe-mode. A built-in snap cap also protects the firing pin from repeated dry firing.
The LaserLyte® Laser Trainer Barrel produces a sound-activated laser when the user pulls the trigger. The Laser Trainer Barrel allows the user to gain confidence and trigger muscle memory in the privacy of their own home. LaserLyte® continues to get sport shooters and professionals on the target faster, increasing accuracy and overall hits with affordable and fun laser training tools.

Sound-activation means the laser doesn’t require any extra modifications to the gun. Since the sound of the firing pin dropping can reach over 100 decibels, this is probably a fairly reliable way to actuate the laser, though I don’t wonder if firing-pin activation wouldn’t be cheaper.
The concept is very good, I think; a drop-in item that allows you to train with your actual firearm’s trigger truly safely, as opposed to relying solely on your own diligence, is something I think there is a market for. However, I think LaserLyte will find their price is an obstacle; while I appreciate quality manufactured aluminum parts, I suspect that a cheaper model could be made, and would sell better.
