“Innovation at Meggitt Training Systems is driven by our highly experienced staff of military veterans and retired law enforcement officers,” said Jeff Murphy, President, Meggitt Training Systems.
“The three new products we’ll display at SHOT Show 2017 continue a 90-year track record of American-made products, including those under the famous FATS® and Caswell brand names.”
Meggitt’s New Solutions on Display will Include:
SafeZoneTM Shooting Stalls
- SafeZone offers the customization to create clear or solid stalls, or a mixture of both.
- Completely reconfigurable and backward compatible, new shooting stalls can be set up in the same location as existing ones.
- SafeZone stalls are L3 pistol and/or L8 rifle rated and are available with a black frame, solid black dividing panel, and a brass shield to prevent spent casings from going into adjacent lanes.
- A swing down shooter’s shelf features a resilient surface, raised edges to prevent accidental drop off, and a recessed tray area containing all weapons, ammunition and other range equipment within the confines of the stall.
- The acoustical blast shield extends to further shelter adjacent shooters, while a site light illuminates the stall interior.

Aiphone® Communication Systems
- Aiphone‘s communication systems enables a range operator and shooters to communicate easily with each other, allowing the operator to monitor changing safety conditions in real time.
- The digital video remote system lets the range operator call, listen and converse with an individual shooter, a select group or all shooters in unison by simply pressing the selector button on the master station.
- Or the operator can view the shooter via a video feed, allowing real-time feedback and response time for calls to master control.
- Plastic or stainless-steel remote audio communication systems provide a similar level of functionality to the digital video remote, minus the video feed.
RangeMasterTM Control System

- The RangeMaster Control System (RMCS) is fully networked and wireless, allowing for easily customizable courses of fire, lighting and temperature, as well as shooter profile and ordering capabilities.
- The RMCS wirelessly controls the XWT GEN3 target retrieval system, placing the target down range at any distance.
- The system gives shooters the ability to move targets to any position between the firing line and the last target line without the use of signaling devices.
- Shooters can easily control commands with a one-touch operation and can also program static or looping courses of fire.
- With a fully networked system, range operators now have the ability to provide unique user logins and passwords.
- This accessibility allows trainers or individual users to pre-configure courses of fire and assign to a specific shooter.
