Wireless TASER Round Ready to Fly

June 30, 2009  | 

TASER International, Inc. announced today that the long-awaited self-contained wireless TASER eXtended Range Electronic Projectile (XREP) shotgun rounds are now available. Together with O.F. Mossberg & Sons Inc. the company also announced the commercial launch of the TASER X12 Less-Lethal Shotgun (LLS) by Mossberg.

The XREP is a wireless electronic control device (ECD) capable of delivering the proven TASER Neuro Muscular Incapacitation effect to a maximum range of 100 feet, which is approximately twice the effective range of other 12-gauge less-lethal munitions options currently available on the market. There are two versions of the XREP: the XREP RL, a “rifled” round; and the XREP FL, a “finned” round. The XREP RL is specially designed for use with the TASER X12 LLS by Mossberg, utilizing a custom twist rifling optimized for low velocity rounds. The XREP FL is capable of being fired from any existing smooth bore 12-gauge pump-action shotgun.

The X12 LLS is the world’s first dedicated less-lethal 12-gauge pump-action shotgun that utilizes Radial Ammunition Key technology to only allow the firing of the TASER XREP R or other future less-lethal rounds. The radial ammunition key prevents the firing of a regular lethal shotgun round.

“This is an exciting day for TASER International as we launch the first wireless TASER capability while breaking the limitations of range and accuracy of traditional 12 gauge impact rounds,” said Rick Smith, CEO and founder of TASER International. “Our teaming with Mossberg, a world renowned leader in the firearms industry, allowed us to leverage almost a century of firearms expertise to develop an integrated system that provides truly breakthrough performance. The availability of the innovative XREP and X12 will change the way law enforcement, corrections and military personnel patrol and protect our lives.”

“We are proud to partner with TASER International for the TASER X12 system,” said A. Iver Mossberg, Jr., CEO for Mossberg. “We are certain our new shotgun platform will save and protect lives.”

The TASER X12 LLS or TASER XREP are available for purchase through TASER International.
