Monadnock AutoLock® X3™ 26" Baton w/ Power Safety Tip:
The Monadnock AutoLock® X3™ expandable baton is the latest innovation in impact devices. The AutoLock® X3 baton features many improvements in the already impressive AutoLock baton series. Notable improvements include an updated cam and stainless-steel ball bearing design which offers reliably consistent locking action and better stability with a solid feel when expanded. Monadnock added a plastic nose on the baton handle that ensures a smoother transition when holstering/unholstering. The Monadnock AutoLock® X3 baton has a blackened electroless nickel finish for a tactical and corrosion resistant look. These batons close flawlessly with the push of a button and are sturdy and stable at lockout.
Monadnock X3 batons have two grip types, two cap and two tip options.
Available grips are the standard foam grip and the super grip. The foam grip offers the highest tear strength and is also offered on most friction lock batons. The super grip is a textured rubber grip that offers better grip and retention in adverse conditions.
The safety tip is a standard baton tip encased in hard rubber to ensure a smooth striking surface. Both baton tips are very effective in striking. The power safety tip is a 2” weight encased in rubber designed to enhance striking effects by adding extra weight to the end of the baton.
The optional wedge end cap enhances baton retention and control.
Appears well made, and functions flawlessly. The proof of construction will be when item has to be used. Baton Warehouse is the place to order from. Item received was as ordered, which seems rare these days, and shipped quickly. Thanks for the no hassle order. Will certainly recommend to others.
Baton locked open the second time I opened it. I was eventually able to get it to close but then it would not open. I really had to pull to get it to open and then back to square one - it wouldn't close again. I disassembled it and found the end of the rod inside was damaged and could find nothing to explain why the two sections would not expand or contract without force. Complete waste of money. Would not buy another Monadnock product again.
I spent a weekend online, shopping around and buying all my gear for the second half of the academy (I'm self sponsored.) The baton was the last order I placed, but the first package that arrived. Very happy. Thank you!
Everything is exactly as it was described when ordered. Engraving looks good with the monodnock autolock baton. Very impressive with the feel, look of the baton. Will be a regular customer to Baton Warehouse fro now on.
Have a current Manadock which works well in particular situations....wanted to purchase the 26in version....love that it is not a friction lock and all we have to do is press the button to collapse....
