ASP Baton Steel 16" Friction Lock Black Chrome.
This ASP Baton is the preferred choice for military and police personnel. Many Police Departments have switched from the old wooden police baton to the ASP baton and have seen their complaints drop significantly. Used by elite Federal teams, the ASP Baton has proven itself virtually indestructible. The ASP is easily carried and readily available.
4140 seamless steel tubing is not commercially available in the United States. As a result, ASP must have a special chemistry or “heat” of steel poured in Germany and then pierced into rounds. This raw stock is then drawn by an American company into tubing that is fabricated to ASP specifications. As a result, ASP is the sole source of 4140 steel tubing for expandable batons. ASP 4140 is 25% stronger than more commonly available 4130 tubing.
25% greater yield strength (bend strength)
25% greater tensile strength (break strength)
Higher carbon content allows more precise heat treating
Tubing stays straighter during processing
