The irM4 laser rifle is powered by the SmartMag. This SmartMag is constructed of glass-filled nylon and has been engineered to ensure flawless function and the highest level of durability.
It shares the same form and weight as a real AR15 magazine.
The SmartMag’s electronics maintain the ammo count and can be pre-set for any realistic amount: 30 shots in the case of the irM4. Each shot an officer takes deducts a shot from the SmartMag. When at zero, the gun will no longer function. Ammo is restored when a new 12 gram CO2 cartridge is installed. The C02 cartridge is secured in the clip using the Quick release hatch which is engineered to be both quick and safe.
The valve design contains the CO2 even when the SmartMag is ejected from the laser rifle. This means an officer can toss their partner the remaining shots in their clip if he is out. The magnetic data coupling allows the SmartMag to communicate with the main gun, providing error free operation.
