The ASP Friction Loc Black Chrome Baton is made from 4140 high carbon steel. The handle part of the baton is coated with zinc and covered with your choice of 3 grip styles. The final finish is of true Black Chrome plating which makes this baton highly corrosion resistant.
Exclusive 4140 Steel
ASP uses 4140 Steel tubing in most of their batons. This type of of tubing is not available in the U.S. As a result, ASP has the steel produced in Germany. A special chemistry of steel is poured and then pierced into rounds. It is then transported to America where the raw stock is then drawn into tubing according to strict ASP specifications. This makes ASP the only source of 4140 tubing for Tactical Batons.
Tests by major law enforcement agencies found ASP Tactical Batons to be “virtually indestructible”
-Is 25% stronger than the more common 4130 tubing.
-Has 25% greater yield or bend strength
-Has 25% greater tensile or break strength
-Tubing remains straighter during processing
-The high carbon content allows for more preceise heat treatment
The Black Chrome coating on this baton is a state of the art black finish for steel surfaces. It is a a true black plating and not just a paint. The final result is an extremely hard surface that will not scratch or rust. It is exceptionally durable and does not flake or peel. The Black Chrome Finish is smooth to the touch while being deep and rich in appearance.
3 Effective Grips to choose from:
Foam Grip for a more comfortable, cushioned hold. This grip is replaceable with our replacement grip kit.
Duratec Grip-These Grips are injection molded directly onto the handle of the baton. The comfortable cushioned grip is easily retained in the hand and has the feel of a custom knife or handgun grip. Internal rings lock the handle into position to prevent shifting.
The DuraTec has a clean, smooth appearance, improved grip durability, rubberized gun grip feel, and a soft textured surface.
Wavemaster Grip for increased retention in hot, wet and humid environments.The geometric arcs on the Wavemaster Grip provide raised ribs that secure the grip of the baton to the users hand. The geometrically opposed wave pattern ensures both linear and lateral retention during the most intense encounters.
The Wavemaster Grip has a soft feel and is tear resistant. The internal positioning rings make sure the grip does not become dislodged.
