RTE has announced a further six new training guns for its RTE Precision and Service (PS) line, which will see them being tested at the Farnborough Airshow from April.
In a statement, RTE said the guns were the “latest generation” of the current range of RTVs, which it had previously described as “a series of precision guns”.RTE said that the new guns were being tested by the UK Government’s Technical Advisory Board (TAB) in a bid to provide “full insight into the performance of the guns”.
These tests, which have been conducted with the full support of the UK government, will see the guns in use at a range of government facilities.
A TAB spokesman said: “These new guns will help us to ensure that we are delivering the most effective weapons for the UK workforce and the country.”RTE has said that while it was aware of the concerns expressed by some members of the public about the reliability of some of the RTV pistols and rifles, the pistols are still “very reliable”.
He added: “We are continually testing the performance and reliability of the new RTE pistols and are confident that the guns will meet the high standards set by the TAB.”
