MERIDIAN, Idaho, April 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SRM Arms today announced an upcoming demonstration of their patented Ringfire™ less-lethal technology for the most popular 12 gauge shotguns used by law enforcement, corrections and military personnel. SRM's Ringfire™ technology also supports 37mm, 38mm and 40mm less-lethal launchers. SRM will be showcasing the new Ringfire™ technology at the annual Mock Prison Riot May 1st – 4th at the Decommissioned West Virginia Penitentiary. This event will attract law enforcement and corrections officers from all across the U.S. and 17 international countries.
Jeff Hajjar, President of SRM, developed the Ringfire™ less-lethal technology as an industry best practice for domestic and international less-lethal markets.
"Our Ringfire technology solves the largest problem associated with less-lethal firearms, which is the discharging of a lethal round that is accidentally placed in a less-lethal launcher," said Jeff Hajjar, President of SRM. "The message we constantly hear from agencies is that they need a less-lethal 12 gauge platform that will not fire lethal rounds. The Ringfire replacement bolt and ammunition does this, and by doing so, we eliminate a massive liability concern for agencies while ensuring greater public safety."
The Ringfire™ system operates in 12 gauge, 37mm, 38mm and 40mm platforms by replacing the existing bolt with a Ringfire™ less-lethal bolt and then using the Ringfire™ less-lethal ammunition. The Ringfire™ bolt is designed so that the firing pin cannot strike a traditional primer found in lethal ammunition which means that a lethal round can't be discharged when using the Ringfire™ system.
"We believe the Ringfire technology will quickly become the industry best practice when it comes to less-lethal solutions," Hajjar continued. "It will protect the public from the deadly mistake that can occur when a lethal round is accidentally placed in a designated less-lethal platform. We are proud to be on the leading edge of this solution."
