ASP Ships P12 and P16 Concealable Batons

March 14, 2012  | 

Armament Systems and Procedures (ASP) is now shipping its newest concealable batons, the P12 and the P16. The two expandable batons are the latest additions to ASP's Friction Loc Baton series and, because of their size and weight, are designed for administrators, plainclothes investigators and undercover officers, according to ASP.

These low-profile impact weapons are highly powerful, providing the striking force of a standard duty baton. Their striking surfaces are made with 4140 high carbon seamless steel tubing. The middle shafts are manufactured from 7075 T6 aluminum—the same metal used in an M16 receiver. This patented steel/aluminum design creates lightweight, durable and devastatingly effective weapons.

"Our batons are virtually indestructible no matter their size," said Kevin Parson, ASP chairman and CEO, in a release. "They provide public safety professionals with peace of mind in any situation."

The grip of the P12 and P16 is the same as the ASP Agent baton. It features a cross-hatch pattern with a continuous spiral overlay that results in a smooth grip without the abrasion.

When retracted, the P12 baton is only 5 inches and the P16 is 6.5 inches, and can be concealed in a pocket, purse, or waistband. Both batons feature ASP's exclusive Snap Loc Clip. The clip can be placed in a variety of positions along the handle to enhance concealment and the ease with which a user can draw the weapon.
