Quick Review: Glock E-Trainer Cheap Dry-Fire Practice Tool

Dry-fire practice is one of the most important parts of becoming a better shooter. The Glock E-Trainer makes dry-fire practice even more beneficial by allowing you to continue to squeeze the trigger without racking the slide to reset it.

There are a host of dry-fire tools out there, from inexpensive snap caps, to advanced laser-training systems that act as indoor reactive targets.

We did a whole rundown of all the dry fire options out there, and went over why this simple form of practice is one of the most important things you can do to get better.

Today, we’re going to talk specifically about Glocks. Now, my personal favorite method is the always-reliable snapcap, which let’s you dry fire over and over again without worrying about damaging your firearm, though they aren’t strictly necessary in most modern centerfire guns.  You should always use snap caps with rimfire guns though.

Of course, snapcaps come with an inherent problem: no way to reset the trigger.

Every time you squeeze the trigger, you have to rack the slide to reset it, unless you have an expensive reset trigger or slide, or one of those fancy shmancy blueguns or laser trainers that automatically resets.

What does it do?

The Glock E-Trainer ($29.99) gives you a reset-free trigger without having to pay through the nose for it.  It’s a simple device that attaches to the underside of your slide by means of carefully gripping the serrations on the gun.

Once it’s on, your trigger will move back and forth freely and without damaging the gun.  Installation takes about five seconds, maybe ten if you drop the thing on the floor first.

The rubber coating on the ends that contact the slide prevent it from marring your finish.

This allows you to practice your trigger squeeze and get your mechanics down without resetting the slide each time.

Now, unfortunately the E-Trainer doesn’t allow the trigger to “break” so you don’t get the practice there, so be sure to practice without it some.  And at less than the cost of a box of decent ammo, what’s not to love?

Where the trigger truly shines (pun intended) is with a laser sight, bore sight, or laser trainer with an “always on” setting.  This allows you to see the movement of the muzzle more clearly when you squeeze the trigger, which can help you diagnose problems with your trigger pull that will cause you to pull a shot wide.

You can see more applications for the E-Trainer below.

What do you think of the Glock E-Trainer?  It’s entered into my regular dry-fire practice.  Let me know what you think in the comments!

      I don't think this will help. I f I remember correctly the LaserLyte need to be struck by the striker to be activated. The E-Trainer does not use the strikerat all, but just allows the movement of the trigger and trigger assembly.
