CTA Target Shooting Kit – Core Kit

    UTM has a stripped down kit, called the Core Kit, which is just the bolt carrier group, magazine and 50 rounds of ammo for $294.  Basically it just doesn’t have the targets, traps and cleaning kit.

    UTM RBT Target Conversions are designed for utmost safety, in-service reliability and maintainability. The UTM RBT AR-15 Bolt Carrier Group Conversion is expertly engineered with Fail-Safe measures to prevent the discharge of a standard ‘“live”’ round. UTM RBT Conversions are easy to install, just a simple exchange of the manufacturer’s Bolt/Carrier Assembly.

    Tom is a former Navy Corpsman that spent some time bumbling around the deserts of Iraq with a Marine Recon unit, kicking in tent flaps and harassing sheep. Prior to that he was a paramedic somewhere in DFW, also doing some Executive Protection work between shifts. Now that those exciting days are behind him, he teaches wilderness medicine and runs an on-demand medical staffing business. He hopes that his posts will help you find solid gear that will survive whatever you can throw at it–he is known (in certain circles) for his curse…ahem, ability…to find the breaking point of anything.
