SKU: ASPBC Category:

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”

4140 Advantage

-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

Durable Finish

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.

    I’m extremely pleased with my ASP 21 inch Black Chrome Wavemaster Grip Baton. So much so, that I also ordered a ASP 21 inch Electroless Wavemaster Grip Baton. Both appear to be superior to another brand baton that I’ve used previously. Time and usage will ultimately confirm value for the cost.

    Ordering to delivery was less than 7days….outstanding..!!

    The batons were received as advertised and they’re great. My expectations were high since I know the ASP brand and those expectations were met. Shipping was fast and I would buy from you again.

    Thanks

    I purchased an ASP Black Chrome Baton and am extremely pleased with the purchase. The quality is top notch. I put this thing to the test and really tried to break it, but hardly put a scratch on it while smashing some bricks with it.

    Received my baton withing 2 days of the time I placed the order. Am very happy with the purchase. I is a little heavier and larger than I anticipated, but a friend in law enforcement said this was the one to get. Is there a holster for my baton that is easy to use and would not be too bulky?

    This is a review and comparison of three 26″ products, all of which I rate as five star depending on the application: the “default” steel black chrome friction-loc, the steel Talon disc-loc, and the aluminum Airweight Talon disc-loc. All are incredible quality. I do not work in law enforcement; we just moved next door to a farm and often see coyotes in our yard and on jogging trails nearby so I purchased these for general home defense use.

    The steel friction-loc is the model issued to police departments worldwide. It means business and it works exactly as advertised. If you are not trying to be discreet and just need maximum power, this is it. Because of the weight, this model is really designed to be kept in a scabbard on a duty belt. It is too heavy to comfortably carry in a pocket. The major drawback of this model is that it really takes practice and a concrete or asphalt surface to retract. I’ve been practicing for weeks and I only manage to successfully retract it about half of the time. You really need to slam it into the ground HARD. I tried to show my wife how to retract it but she laughed and said “yeah right”. She will never use this.

    The steel Talon disc-loc weighs about the same as the friction-loc and probably has 99% of the striking force, but it is MUCH more convenient. The button works great. You have to hold the button down really hard and ASP knows what they’re doing, I doubt anyone would ever accidentally retract this while in use. This model is actually 24″ long and it is a bit wider than the friction-loc. Again, because of the weight, this is not optimal to carry in a pocket. My guess is the reason police use the friction-loc is because the disc-loc is more expensive.

    I initially purchased the aluminum Airweight Talon disc-loc for my wife thinking I would prefer the steel, but after several weeks I have decided the aluminum is my personal favorite. According to ASP it maintains 98% of the striking force of the steel yet it is far lighter. The weight seems to be concentrated in the tip which I suppose is what gives it the striking force. It is black and looks exactly like the steel model. When rapidly extended, it makes the same authoritative “clack-CLACK” sound as the steel ones. It can be carried in a pocket without issue. Also, because of the lighter weight, I can swing this many times without feeling any fatigue whereas with the steel ones my arm gets tired after 3-4 swings. Given that my intended target is aggressive wild animals that tend to be quick, I like having the ability to swing repeatedly.

    Overall you can’t go wrong with any full-size ASP baton, but for civilian use my overall recommendation is the Airweight Talon. Sure, it’s not as heavy as the steel, but it is still an incredibly potent defensive tool.

    I bought the 16 inch black chrome baton and love it. It suits my needs perfectly. I will also be buying the 21 inch and possibly the 26 inch at a later date.

    The 21″ baton lives up to the hype. The construction is outstanding and durable for the shaft and handle. The Duratec Grip provides outstanding grip retention. The only weak-link is the retention clip which broke after the first week; easy enough to replace just ensure you have spares on hand for the baton you train with.

    I would purchase this again and recommend this product to all.

    once the baton is at full extension hard to retract even when pounding on a concrete surface (only surface that seems to work). it is as if it needs some sort of fine dust type lubricant to unlock it like graphite. i have to strike it very hard several times on the concrete and it take the black paint off the end to retract. it does extend well consistently as advertised. that is why it only rates a 4 star rating.

The review of Baton Defense/Miles Tactical is given a 5 star experience rating. This is my first purchase from them, and every aspect of the purchase and delivery were exceptional.

    This item I have been using for years already as it is issued to me for work .
    I purchased a spare to use in training as I have to be re-certified in its use every three years .
    It’s just simpler to own one rather than carry the one from work . Thanks again for the five star service *****

    Not only can I tell a big difference between the quality of the ASP product versus other batons (which is fantastic with the ASP brand), but the customer service given by Miles Tactical was wonderful. Immediate responses and a personal touch. Love the product and will happily buy from you again!

    You can tell this product is made with high quality steel, just lock it out and tap it on the floor and it will create a distinct harmonic noise, that is how you know that this is made out of some very high strength steel!

    As a martial artist I will use the baton for self defence only.

    No matter who you are law enforcement, militant, or just layman, if you want a retractable baton and any products to go with it; look no further. This baton is amazing. You can just tell that a great amount of love went into each and everyone of these babies.

    Great service, fast delivery. The baton is spectacular, the only problem is getting the baton back to its initial position, only beating hard against the floor.

    NOTE; The tip must be brought straight down on a hard surface such as pavement.

    I purchased the 26 inch federal baton with a leverage cap. First, this weapon feels solid and well manufactured. This is definately a big step up from any cheap knock-off batons. Only a fool would trust his life to a piece of stainless steel crap knock-off baton from Hong Kong. ONLY BUY ASP. EVERYTHING ELSE IS GARBAGE. This baton is just slightly too long with the lev cap attached to conseal easily. If you want effective range and good consealment size, get the 21-inch with the Lev cap or the 26-inch without the Lev cap. If consealing it is not a priority. I suggest getting this baton; the 26-inch with leverage cap. The leverage cap is double-functioning. Even a closed baton with a leverage cap is an extremely effective weapon. Of course, the cap also adds a tremendous amount of power to the swing of the expanded baton. My final verdict? 21-inch with lev cap for conseal and carry. 26-inch with leverage cap for service use. Everything else aside, this is an excellent weapon. I’m sure that a well trained warrior could easily beat his way from one end of a rioting crowd to another. This is also both a lethal and a non-lethal weapon depending on your use and training. Sometimes extreme actions are necessary to stop extreme people. This baton will do the job, period.
