Some of you may have heard of the DryFireMag or the Trigger Reset Magazine. This cool little aftermarket training aid product is quite unique when compared to things like snap caps or laser training devices. One of the biggest problems people run into when they are doing dry-fire practice is that when using a single action only or striker-fired handgun, the slide needs to be re-racked every time for the next shot. Not so with the DryFireMag. The DryFireMag automatically resets your trigger for you so that you can continue to practice your dry fire uninterrupted! Recently, at GAOS 2022, the company announced that they would be coming out with new DryFireMag models to encompass more handguns and even AR-15 rifles.

New DryFireMag Models Coming in 2022 – Glock, S&W, AR-15, and More!
The new DryFireMag models to be released throughout the year in 2022 include specially made mags for the Glock 43, 43X/48, Smith & Wesson M&P Shield, Shield Plus, SIG P365, Springfield Armory Hellcat, FN 509, H&K VP9 series, and the AR-15 platform. The addition of the AR-15 is by far the most surprising to me as this would most certainly require huge adjustments to the current design which allows you to continue to dry fire without replacing or removing any parts from your gun save for the magazine.
Each new DryFireMag that is produced is pre-set to match the factory trigger weight of its intended host gun and also simulate a “partially loaded magazine.” The DryFireMag will not damage your firing pin and the mags are also said to be compatible with a lot of aftermarket triggers meaning you can use these on your competition guns without issue. As a final feature, if you’re not satisfied with how the trigger weight feels from the factory, DryFireMag has included instructions with each of their old and new products that walk you through how to adjust your mag to your preferences.
Pricing and release dates on the new DryFireMags weren’t available at GAOS2022 but judging from their current pricing, my estimation is that new models of pistol magazine will be around the same $100 price mark for one unit. I would also expect the AR-15 magazine to cost slightly more due to the associated R&D and initial production costs. However, I’d like to hear what you guys think. What do you guys think about these new offerings from DryFireMag? If this is the first time you’ve heard of their products, how do you feel like this system compares to other existing dry fire training aids?
