JACKSONVILLE, Florida – Monadnock® announced today the release of three additional length options for its AutoLock® X3™ Expandable Baton. With 16”, 18” and 26” lengths now available, in addition to the 21” and 22” lengths, this newest series offers a broad selection to meet individual officer needs. The AutoLock X3 series features an updated cam and stainless steel ball bearing, providing a reliably consistent locking action and a solid feel in the hand when deployed.
“We’re constantly looking for ways to improve our products and expand offerings to meet customer needs”, said Craig Starrett, Category Director, Monadnock. “With the most comprehensive offering of positive locking baton lengths in the industry, the AutoLock X3 has been well received by agencies throughout the country and many officers have complimented its feel and ease of draw.”
The patented AutoLock X3 baton is equipped with a new blackened electroless nickel finish that improves corrosion resistance on the inside and outside of the baton and features a new smooth plastic nose on the baton handle for more efficient holstering and transitioning from the holster to the hand. Available with a variety of options, these models can be purchased with either a firm foam or fluted Super Grip® handle, which offers excellent tear strength, and a choice of the Safety Tip®, 3XT Tactical Targeting Tip, or the Power Safety Tip®. Engineered to turn a subject’s pockets inside out while reducing the risk of the user getting stuck with sharp objects, the Power Safety Tip also offers a weight-forward balance.
These new offerings will be featured at the 2015 SHOT (Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade) Show, booth #12762 at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, NV this week.
The 21” and 22” lengths were introduced last fall. The 16”, 18” and 26” AutoLock X3 positive lock batons are now also available for purchase. For more information on the AutoLock X3 baton series, please click here.
