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.
Good quality and very well made, would recommend to anyone in the law enforcement or security industry who needs a baton. Customer service is awesome and shipping was fast!
Excellent Baton for law enforcement and security.
The only complaint that I have is that the black finish was already flaking off and had a half inch spot of bare metal showing on the shaft about a half inch from the joint closest to the tip on the Airweight that I received.
The clip works perfectly. I carry my 26" ASP baton in my pocket. The clip sees that it never slips out. It works so well that if I want to pull out the baton I generally need to open the clip first.
I ordered this for my son for Christmas and even though it was not guaranteed to arrive in time, it got here in plenty of time. I carry the same baton and have had mine for 25 years. This is a great tool. There are "better" impact weapons, but they are usually laying in floor of the patrol car when you need them. The sound of the ASP extending has an amazing psychological effect. I know this will serve my son for many years to come as he follows in Dad's footsteps.
