BreachBangClear has posted an excellent trieste and introduction to new 7.62mm marking munitions from UTM. Man-Marking Rounds are deployed by the US Military, Federal agencies, and LE customers to better simulate real-world firearms combat.
Simplified, UTM’s man-marker rounds are a cross between very powerful airsoft and paintball projectiles that can be used with appropriate adapters in fielded weapon systems. Typically, customers will need a special bolt (for rifles) or barrel system (for pistols) and will have to replace their real counterparts for the MMR rounds to work.
Since their inception, UTM has produced only 5.56 and 9mm MMRs. Now they have released 7.62 projectiles that increase their compatible array or weapon systems to include Medium Machine Guns and the iconic AK platform.
7.62 systems are available to Government, LE, and appropriate customers now. UTM’s compatibility list is growing, so you may see it at a military or training range near you soon.
Perhaps they will end up at specialized civilian ranges too?
