CTS 40mm Sponge Spin Stabilized Foam Baton, Smokeless – Model 4556

CTS manufactures a wide range of single and multiple projectile munitions with payload capabilities exceeding those of any other less-lethal manufacturer. Single projectile offerings are extremely accurate for selective engagement in a variety of situations. Multiple projectile munitions come in a wide range of payloads permitting escalation of force when dispersing large and unruly crowds.

*The frangible Impact+ munitions are spin-stabilized projectile and deliver multi-effects of blunt trauma and dispersal of irritant powder on and around target. Although it is extremely accurate and consistent, accuracy is dependent on the launcher, using open sights vs. an improved sight, environmental conditions, and the operator. Effectiveness depends on many variable, such as distance, clothing, stature, and the point where the projectile impacts.

CAUTION: Shots to the head, neck, thorax, heart, or spine can result in fatal or serious injury.
