Smith & Wesson 21" 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 21” Smith & Wesson S.W.A.T. baton is just 8” in the collapsed position and weighs only 9oz. 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.
This was just want my husband needed for work but with out the crazy price. It works amazing. Easy to get it to come out and go back in. He has greased it up a little since I took all the oil off trying to figure it out.
Item came quickly was exactly as described, even had the optional engraving on it! I would definitely give this company my business again in the future and recommend them to my fellow co workers! Thanks Baton Warehouse!
This is my 2nd S&W baton. I purchased this as a gift for a female friend of mine. Quality is excellent, and the price is right. I did see someone mention difficulty in closing the baton, but S&W recommends a few drops of light oil on the sections to reduce friction. I have had no similar issue at all. I highly recommend this product.
Great Baton, delivered so quickly even with engraving completed!
Was working with new baton, extends quickly as designed but have had some difficulty retracting the smallest section (striking end) on several ocasions, taking forceful vertical hits to concrete floor to collapse. Does not appear bent and I have only struck a hand bag to practice.
