Monadnock PR-24 Rigid Side-Handle Black Aluminum Baton
Monadnock PR-24 Rigid Side-Handle Black Aluminum Baton:
The iconic PR-24 baton has long been known as essential police equipment. The PR-24 baton is most successfully used as a defensive weapon. The unique shape makes these good for protecting against both front and rear attacks. The side handle aids in retention, providing a secure handle to grip the baton. The side handle also can be used to apply control holds to a subject. This PR-24 baton has an all aluminum construction, making it both stronger & heavier than the polycarbonate versions.
I removed the handle and turned it into an old school aluminum straight baton. I also packed the swinging end with 4 oz of lead shot in an epoxy. A little weight puts some pepper on swinging strikes. Of course this can’t be used for duty purposes like this. It’s more of a home defense tool.
It is worth every penny to get this all-aluminum version. The weight and strength have to be felt in your hand. Excellent balance, and this one swings better and delivers more pop than the poly ones (as you would expect). Cannot recommend enough, and of course, I say every time, Baton Warehouse shipping and customer service is the best.
Only the the best tools are good enough for my team. The price is fair. Shipping was fast and efficient.
My coworkers and officers from other agencies commented " that's old school ". A friend of mine is an instructor and showed me all the uses it can perform. What I love best about it, is the ability to defend myself with it. Example, someone trying to strike me with an object. I can not defend myself equally with that expandable baton compared to the PR24 with its side handle.
Outstanding baton! Very solid and it balances better than the polycarbonate version. When using this for blocks, there is no vibration felt. I opted for the free engraving and it was very well done.
