Smith & Wesson 26" Aluminum Baton & Holder:
The Smith & Wesson S.W.A.T. lightweight baton is as effective as it is light. Lightweight construction makes deployment faster without sacrificing strength. High strength steel and aluminum construction ensures this baton is sturdy in the most demanding situations. The rounded steel baton tip is designed to apply pressure, but not break the skin of any attacker. Batons are an effective defense tool. The 26” Smith & Wesson baton is just 9.5” in the collapsed position and weighs only 11oz. This baton utilizes the friction lock mechanism, to close the baton simply hit the tip on a hard surface in a straight downward motion. This baton has a foam grip and includes a nylon Smith & Wesson baton holder. The included baton holder is designed to fit 2.25" police duty belts.
I own a number of batons - S&W, ASP, Bonowi, and NEX...this is one of the best I have. The balance point is dead center of the length, the foam handle makes for an easy draw from the holster, and I can swing it at 67 MPH (per a bat swing radar, average of 3 swings). The lock-up is stronger than my S&W steel batons, which can unlock under strong blows on a heavy climbing rope suspended from the ceiling. The lighter weight per the length makes for faster follow-up swings. Highly recommended, especially at this price.
Very light weight and sturdy.
Excellent piece of equipment!
This lightweight baton will really move! It is super quick and hard-hitting.
The price is great and the delivery was less than a week.
It's super difficult to close if opened with any type of force, over priced..
Thank you for your business. We believe Smith & Wesson batons are an excellent value. They are purposefully hard to retract so they stay deployed if they are being used in a defensive situation. With a little practice/training most officers are able to expand and retract their batons with ease .
Thank you again!
