Monadnock 16 inch Expandable Baton

Classic Friction Lock – Detective Series Baton 

Made from cold drawn 4130 aircraft seamless alloy steel tubing, the Classic Friction Lock Baton is engineered using Computer Aided Design (CAD) and state-of-the-art machinery. Thanks to the precision Morse tapers, the tight locking joints make the baton feel solid in your hand. When the baton tip strikes a hard surface, the weight in the tip helps it close by providing additional shock to unlock the shafts.
