ASP Batons - 26" Friction Loc Expandable Baton:
ASP has defined expandable batons for 30 years. The classic Friction Loc ASP baton is the most widely used police baton. ASP Friction Loc batons are constructed of 4140 steel that is significantly stronger than 4130 steel used by other manufacturers. In most cases, the sound of an ASP baton being deployed is enough of a deterrent.
ASP batons have many options for handles, shafts & accessories.
The DuraTec grip is an injected molded mostly firm textured grip. DuraTec grips are permanently bonded to the baton. Foamed vinyl grips are softer, extremely reliable and also replaceable.
ASP Friction Loc batons are available with an Airweight, Chrome or Black Chrome shaft. Each having its own set of advantages. The Airweight shaft makes deployment faster, resulting in quick response times to any threat. The chrome finish provides a nice look and corrosion resistance. Black Chrome provides a tactical, non-reflective finish.
ASP Friction Loc Batons are impact released, easily retracted by knocking a hard surface. The Friction Loc baton is an Elite Impact weapon, utilized globally by the most advanced Law Enforcement Agencies. With a simple, compact design produced with duty grade materials, this ASP Baton outperforms and outlasts all competitors.
it's a baton, we all know what to expect. No surprises, nothing out of the ordinary, great baton. Works really well if you need something to whack somebody with but you also want it to be collapsible.
When lethal defense is discouraged these lengths are both appropriate for negotiating a threat. The 26" is better for legs or when longer distancing is preferred while the shorter 21" is best for closer encounters, reduced weight and concealment. (BTW they are also considered lethal if used inconsistent with proper training...the tips are able to shatter a brick when deployed and applied correctly.) Overall, these batons are of the highest quality...and for those first timers the tension of the telescoping mechanism is somewhat adjustable in the cap and can be used predictably for applications under normal wear and tear. In a time of product shortages and shipping delays...this company accurately and quickly shipped my order and with fast and friendly correspondence!
Excellent product and service
The batons I ordered are high quality products. I appreciated the quick shipping. I would order from this company again.
I received it very fast. I have owned a ASP Baton before. And as always it is reliable and very durable piece of equipment. For busting a window out to get a infant left locked in a vehicle in the heat. For a defensive means of not having to use deadly force. I put this baton right along with, my pepper spray. It is a great tool for your protect. Watch training videos, it will help you get a greater understanding on how they can be used.
