ASP Sentry Baton

(17 customer reviews)


SKU: asp-sentry-baton Category:

The ASP Sentry baton is the moderately priced alternative to the 4140 steel batons. Built of 4130 steel the Sentry baton is designed to give security professionals a superior product at an economical price point.

The Sentry Baton is designed by ASP and made of 4130 Japanese steel. It has a unique corrosion resistant black nickel finish and a carbon steel tip. The endcap and base retaining clip are made of Aluminum.

The carefully designed handle is of 60 durometer Santoprene and features the ASP Strike Force Grip that will provide you with firm retention in the most adverse conditions.

The Sentry operates the same so the traditional ASP friction Loc batons. To expand the baton you must snap your wrist out sharply to lock the tubes in place. To retract you must bring the tip straight down on a hard surface such as asphalt of concrete.

The Sentry is the same size as the traditional Friction Locs and is compatible with all ASP accessories including ASP Grip Caps, Leverage Cap, Grip Cap and BreakAway glass breaking cap.

You can choose from Duty, Federal or SideBreak Scabbards.

    This is a great piece of equipment I had one of the higher priced models when I was in the military and they definitely get the job done. This one my wife carries in her purse because of the world we live in today

    Initially concerned about the standard 4130 steel, the doubts were laid to rest when this baton was put to the test.

    Lighter than the 4140 steel Friction Loc Batons and with an aluminum end-cap. The balance is tip-heavy but can be offset by replacing end-cap with a Grip Cap or Accessory of choice placing balance point near distal end of grip. Though lighter this baton still strikes hard, especially with proper training of body mechanics.

    I feel very comfortable placing this in the hands of our Security personnel.

    If you need a quality made heavy duty baton WithOut shelling out $100+, this is the one to get. No issues wrapping forcefully against a dense punching bag as hard as one can. It might be a tad heavy in the pocket, if thats the case get an airweight. But for a budget this is more than enough. Grip is like a motorcycle tire and feels super tough. Only use this for self defense and definitely avoid critical areas because it has the potential to inflict severe damage as it is basically like a solid steel pipe.

    These ASP Sentry batons are very good quality, comparable to the US-made ASP batons. They are much better than all the other imported batons that I have seen. Some of those are junk. The Sentry baton locks up securely. The grip is hard rubber with curved grooves. For me these grips are not as comfortable as the smooth Santoprene ASP grips or the ASP foam grips (various grip options on the more expensive ASP batons). But for occasional self defense use and practice the grips are fine. However, for a peace officer or security guard that is going to be handling the baton a lot, you may prefer the other grips available on the more expennsive ASP batons since they are softer on the hand.

    As with all ASP baton products, I would highly recommend this Sentry baton to anyone. I own several of their products and can’t say enough about the quality.

    In comparing the 21 inch ASP Sentry to the 21 inch 4140 variant I found it held up to it’s more expensive 4140 sibling. In testing we used a weighted and more dense punching bag, the Sentry showed no signs of bending or flex. Nor did the baton collapse when counter striked (such as from a strike from left than from right). However, in taking measurements There mortise tapers are different. The more expensive series (4140) has a more aggressive flare which provides more surface area for the handle to hold the shaft. Measurement location was ensured by securing both batons on a flat surface and measured with a digital caliper. A laser level was used as a reference measuring point for both shafts.
