RifleBlok™ was engineered to bring the same level of simplicity and training realism to rifles and carbines. Training with a rifle presents its own unique challenges and RifleBlok™ is designed to realistically duplicate each function of a rifle in a safe, realistic manner. There are several features that have been built into the RifleBlok™ 556 that make it the safest, most realistic training tool on the market for rifles chambered in .223 Remington/5.56 NATO.
1. Safe and Simple- Starting with safety, RifleBlok™ inserts through the open ejection port and into the barrel and chamber, effectively "blocking the barrel" and preventing a live cartridge from being chambered. You DO NOT have to disassemble your rifle to use RifleBlok™. NOTE- Depending on the rifling in the bore, if you meet any resistance when inserting RifleBlok™ 556, twist it in the same direction as the rifling to insert.
2.) Visual Indicator- The easy-to-see tip protrudes from the muzzle allowing everyone to see that the rifle is safe. This tip can be trimmed to the desired length. BarrelBlok™ recommends trimming the RifleBlok™ to about 4 inches. RifleBlok™ fits barrels lengths up to 21".
3.) Strike Face- The The back of the RifleBlok™ features a Strike Face for the firing pin to contact when conducting dry-fire training drills. The firing pin in an AR-platform is free floating and the Strike face prevents excessive movement of the firing pin during exercises without harming it.
4.) Out-of-Battery Indicator- The back of the RifleBlok™ features an Extractor Ramp that will safely engage the extractor and prevent the firearm from going into battery if the rifle is not fully charged. This helps the user to fully pull the charging handle all the way back and release it. It also helps the use to set up scenarios where they can train by using the Forward Assist on the rifle.
5.) Curved Neck- The curved neck aids in the easy insertion and removal of RifleBlok™ from your rifle.
6.) MagBlok™ 556- The MagBlok™ 556 will be released in mid-December 2016, at which time it will become a standard part of the RifleBlok™ 556 product line! All RifleBlok™ 556 products will come with three (3) MagBlok™ 556 devices that trick the rifle into thinking it has a loaded magazine. This prevents the bolt from locking to the rear when training with an empty magazine in the rifle. Now any type of training scenario or malfunction drill can set up and duplicated exactly like they would happen in the real world.
BARRELBLOK™ USER INSTRUCTIONS:
BarrelBlok™ was designed from the beginning to be simple and fast, otherwise students and instructors would not use it. In the simplest of terms, insert BarrelBlok™ to use it, and remove it to return your firearm to its operational state. No disassembly. No tools. No fuss! The following instructions are for inserting a BarrelBlok™ into a pistol, regardless of make, model or caliber. NOTE- PLEASE SEE WARNING AND CAUTION STATEMENTS BELOW. Use extreme caution and always practice the Four Cardinal Rules of Firearms Safety ANYTIME you are handling a firearm in ANY manner!
HOW TO USE BARRELBLOK™:
Step 1: Your firearm MUST be UNLOADED. With your firearm pointed in a safe direction and your finger(s) off the trigger, release the magazine and clear the chamber. Visually and physically inspect your firearm to ensure that it is safe.
Step 2: With the slide locked to the rear, insert BarrelBlok™ through the open ejection port and into the chamber as shown to the left. If the insertion angle causes the BarrelBlok™ tip to catch on the inside edge of the chamber, remove it and bend the tip upwards a little and reinsert.
Step 3: Carefully push the BarrelBlok™ as far into the chamber as possible with your finger. The tip will protrude from the muzzle. Make sure the back of the BarrelBlok™ in resting inside the chamber as shown to the left.
Step 4: Release the slide as you would when charging the firearm with full spring compression. The slide should be allowed to slam forward and into battery. After being released, pull the slide back to make sure the BarrelBlok™ is seated in the chamber as shown to the left.
Step 5: Count the number of desired increments you want to trim the BarrelBlok™ to. We recommend having at least 1/2" to 1" extending from the muzzle. Each marked increment on the tip is 1/2". Remove BarrelBlok™ and trim to size with a knife or snips. (See CAUTION below).
Step 6: Reinsert the BarrelBlok™ into your firearm using the above instructions. Confirm the tip is trimmed to the desired length. Insert an empty magazine and begin training.
REMOVAL INSTRUCTIONS: Remove magazine and lock the slide to the rear. With muzzle pointed up, sharply tap BarrelBlok™ so that it pops out into the ejection port. Grasp BarrelBlok™ and remove from the firearm.

BarrelBlok™ was originally developed for use exclusively with the D.R.A.W. School Firearms Training program for law enforcement and military. Elite tactical teams and officers wanted a training tool that would allow them to train with the full operational weight of their firearm with absolute confidence that it was safe. While this request was in contrast to traditional firearms training rules, these teams and individuals wanted the ability to replicate every aspect of real-world situations in training, including the full weight of an operational firearm. With "out-of-the-box" forward-thinking, several key development criteria were established that had to be met in the final product.
These criteria included:
- The device MUST prevent a round from being chambered when inserted.
- The device MUST visually confirm that the firearm is safe.
- The device MUST maintain mechanical functionality.
- The device MUST maintain operational weight and balance of firearm.
- The device MUST serve a clearance indicator for holsters and tactical training.
- The device MUST be universal and adaptable to most firearm platforms.
- The device MUST not require dis-assembly of the firearm to use.
When training is completed, the firearm can be returned to duty-ready state in just a few seconds. This allows training to take place anytime, anywhere.
BarrelBlok™ has changed the way firearms training is conducted. Instructors are able to see that the firearm is safe, providing the ability to observe their students from a "first person" perspective and other forward angles. This allows instructors to help students make minute changes that can have a tremendous impact on the proper execution of tactics. For students, the ability to train without inadvertent training scars being unconsciously learned means that performance in critical situations will mirror peak performance learned during training.
