The Army’s Special Operations Command has been looking at a new non-lethal, non-weapon to be the exact copy of the Army’s M4 carbine. This will serve as a valuable training tool that can be used anywhere and anytime. 

Unit Solutions Inc. has produced the Unit4 which looks exactly like and functions the same as the Army’s M4 carbine. According to the company’s website, the UNIT4 Training System is a mil-spec, standalone, M4 training system that uses CO2 to fire 8mm non-lethal projectiles. Classified as a non-weapon by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF), the UNIT4 has been specifically engineered to allow police and military users to train safely, affordably, and more frequently

Former Green Beret Joe Fitterer, who is now a field service representative of Unit Solutions, spoke with Military.com. He stated that the training weapons used in the past, which fired submunitions, required designated ranges and training areas because they utilized primer-fired ammunition.
