Indoor range training equipment for real-world survivability

Firearms training is about more than sending rounds down range. It’s also about perceiving realistic threats such as moving targets, friend/foe discrimination, decision-making skills, cover and concealment, and low-light situations. These types of live-fire training engagements are critical to survivability in the field, allowing you to train at any time, under any condition.

XWT GEN4 Wireless Target Carrier

Meggitt Training Systems offers the Next Generation Wireless Target System (XWT) GEN4 to meet the need for efficient, reliable and user-friendly training systems.

The XWT was the industry’s first wireless, 360º turning target retrieval system, and advancements to the carrier continue. The XWT GEN4 uses a Lithium Ion battery with a positive locking battery connection and ergonomic battery placement/ replacement, providing a 50% increase in battery capacity. The new charging/docking system improves contact design for faster and more reliable charging. That means more time using the XWT GEN4 on your range, and less time charging it.

Programmable distraction lighting now integrates red, blue and white LED target lighting with four times the brightness of previous models. The chassis features a new side cover design for wheel overhead protection and the prevention of brass drivetrain damage. The anti-static wheels eliminate the need for grounding hardware and reduces ESD challenges.

Meggitt’s XWT GEN4 provides a host of advantages over other carriers on the market:

  • Moves along a rail system, powered by an internal direct drive, dual motor system, with anti-static wheels for quieter, smoother operation
  • Unique closed track design provides smooth target transportation
  • Does not collect lead fragments, casings and other debris
  • No drive cables or pulleys to break or replace
  • No bulky and noisy drive motors above the shooters head
  • No track mounted power feed rails or wires to be impacted and damaged
  • Less susceptible to debris in tracks, and reduced need to clean or interfere with target operation
  • Speed control options provide “Advance / Retreat” training exercises
  • Easily programmable through a wireless controller, allowing uncomplicated intuitive screen operation
  • Targets are locally controlled using the Lane Controller (LC) or from a control room area using the Primary Master Control Computer
  • Programmable maneuvers and scenarios for skill set development and effective training
  • Basic and advanced user interfaces support the operator’s preferred courses of fire, whether basic qualifications or more advanced reactive and decision making shooting exercises
  • Includes 3/8” AR500 Front Armor Plate Prow

The XWT GEN4 is the next level of innovative range products available from Meggitt Training Systems. The quiet, smooth, low maintenance wireless carrier is easily operated and programmable, essential for successful training and usability.

XCT Target Retrieval System

Offering the ruggedness and stability of a track system with the simplicity of a non-turning target carrier, the XCT target carrier operates on an overhead monorail track, allowing smooth and rapid transport of the target up or down range in increments of feet, yards or meters. The XCT is operated via touch-screen controller at the firing line and provides a myriad of target commands at the touch of a button. The target carrier may be stopped at any distance from the firing line through the tablet.

Additional features include:

  • Formed steel monorail track (up to 50 meters) which provides a stable platform for target transport
  • Durable, low-profile target carrier with armored front plate made with 3/8” AR500 steel (armor prow) facing the shooter to limit damage from bullet impacts
  • Enclosed drive unit offers easy accessibility to motor components
  • Target holders attached to the target carrier for interchangeable offhand, kneeling and prone shooting, and differing types of targets

The XCT target retrieval system is suitable for handguns, submachine guns and shotguns, allowing a full spectrum of training and usage by customers. Target carriers are capable of holding everything from bull’s-eye to full-size police silhouette targets.

Classic gun target retrieval systems

The CEE and CEB target carriers offer the stability of a track system and the simplicity of a non-turning target carrier in an economical design. These fixed speed, electrically powered trolley wire target systems are operated manually via a forward-stop-return control switch located at the firing line.

Meggitt Training Systems offers a full array of target carriers for your shooting range. From the basic target retriever to a wireless target carrier, Meggitt can meet your requirements.
