We are an Authorized ASP Baton Dealer. You can shop with confidence!
Police will choose the ASP above any other Baton. It is made in the US and is the best impact weapon available. Although there are cheaper batons available that are produced in Taiwan, Korea, Japan and India. None of these meet the specifications established by major Federal Law Enforcement and military organizations.
Before purchasing a baton you need to make sure it is legal in your state. An internet search regarding baton laws or a call to your local Police Department can save you the trouble of sending it back.
ASP is continually adding more products to their line. Some of the more recent additions are designed to be more low profile than the standard police versions, and better suited for civilians. You can refer to our synopsis to help you distinguish between the different styles and grips available.
Batons are a very effective psychological deterrent. The friction loc batons require a sharp snapping motion of the wrist to expand, and to retract you bring the tip straight down on a hard surface such as asphalt or concrete.
1. Friction Loc– This is the standard baton produced by ASP. It has the fewest moving parts and expands with a sharp snap of your wrist and closes by bringing the tip straight down on a hard surface such as concrete or asphalt. It is available in 4 different models and 3 grip styles.
2. Disc Loc- Push button to close functionality. To close the talon baton you depress the button at the base of the handle and push the tip against any surface. Closing the baton is easily done with only one hand!
4. Agent– The compact version of the Talon Disc loc baton. Smaller in diameter and lightweight makes them compact and concealable.
5. Sentry– A friction loc baton that uses 4030 steel instead of 4140. This makes it a moderately priced alternative to the standard friction locs. The Sentry has the Santoprene grip with a Strike Force design molded into it.
Foam Vinyl– This is the softest and most comfortable of the grips. It may require replacement after a few years of Law Enforcement use.
Santoprene Duratec– Harder rubber type grip that is extremely durable.
Wavemaster– This is simply the Santoprene grip with a Wavemaster design molded in for extra retention.
