ASP - Foam Baton - Black Chrome

Exclusive 4140 Steel
ASP uses 4140 Steel tubing in most of their batons. This type of of tubing is not available in the U.S. As a result, ASP has the steel produced in Germany. A special chemistry of steel is poured and then pierced into rounds. It is then transported to America where the raw stock is then drawn into tubing according to strict ASP specifications. This makes ASP the only source of 4140 tubing for Tactical Batons.
