ATFE Approved



IRAC replica and simulator weapons are a symbol of quality and craftsmanship. When you receive your IRAC weapon, you will have the confidence knowing it was constructed with the highest level of quality, safety and legal compliance.

Every IRAC replica and sim-fire weapon has been approved and certified by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATFE) as a “non-gun.” This unique certification allows IRAC gun owners to display and operate their weapons in complete compliance with the ATFE.

What ATFE Certification Means For You

Because our simulators are visually and audibly indistinguishable from live-fire weapons, those who are not familiar with an IRAC product may become alarmed. Because IRAC simulators are ATFE-Certified, owners and operators can feel comfortable in their ability to quickly dispel any misconceptions of the weapon’s legal status and design compliance.

What Does It Take To Be ATFE-Certified?

The ATFE certification process is a lengthy and rigorous process. For a replica weapon, simulated-fire or not, to be ATFE-Certified, it must be inspected by the ATFE and meet required design standards. For example, the receiver’s right-side plate on our .50 caliber and .30 caliber models reach a level of thickness that prevent actual machine gun parts from being integrated into the system. This makes our .50 caliber and .30 caliber models right side plate ATFE approved. It is impossible for a replica weapon to be in full compliance with the law, without adhering to ATFE-approved design standards.
