ACME earned a new patent for the all-electric Gun Active Recoil (GAR) system, used by the U.S. Army, Air Force, Navy and Marines; Canadian Ministry of Defense and the U.K. Royal Navy. The new patent highlights ACME’s realistic, full-force recoil at any rate of fire for actual or fully-weighted replica machine guns.

Training in the simulator with realistic recoil ensures gunners learn to respond to, but not fear, recoil forces, helping gunners re-engage with each burst when the weapon is driven off target by recoil or environmental factors.
