JPX4

JPX4

From the Switzerland based company Piexon comes their latest solution in less lethal OC firepower called the JPX4. Piexon revolutionized the consumer defense market several years ago when they first unveiled their JPX Jet Protector; a two-shot semi automatic pistol that fired blasts of OC gel at distances previously unseen from compact platforms. Their system uses a pyrotechnic charge, just like a traditional firearm to deliver a payload down range, but instead of a lethal round the device fires a hot blast of OC. The JPX systems use their own proprietary OC called Piexol which is rated a 400kS, which will cause extreme burning to the eyes, skin, and difficulty breathing to any exposed target. The JPX4 is the newer four-shot variant of the original system, but the newer platform uses an open breach reload for the cartridges rather than a replaceable barrel system found on the original JPX platform. The firing mechanism is mechanical and delivers the OC down...

Tiberius Arms T8

Tiberius Arms T8

Tiberius Arms is a company that specializes in serious paintball gear. One of their items is the Tiberius Arms T8 paintball pistol. This platform has been used by many other "less lethal" companies as a primary defensive pistol for less lethal application. Some of these include the Pepper Ball TMP pistol, SWAT C8 pistol, and the FN 303P. This pistol platform has been proven more reliable than it's counterpart produced by Tippman (TiPX) which has also been used in a variety of  "less lethal" applications such as the SALT Pepper Spray Gun. The issue is that most of the variations of the Tiberius Arms T8 marketed by FN and Pepperball aren't sold to the general public. However, as a civilian one can buy the original platform from a variety of online retailers such as Amazon.

JPX Jet Projector

JPX Jet Projector

The JPX Jet Projector is a relatively new device which is available to both the consumer market and law enforcement agencies. It was a compact weapon system that has the ability to deploy two highly concentrated OC (oleoresin capsicum) shots with a range of approximately twenty five feet towards a target at 405 mph. This provides enough force for the OC to wrap around sunglasses and penetrate ski masks. The cartridge is inserted on top of the pistol frame and meant to be replaced after deployment. The system comes in two different varieties; a fixed blade sight version and a laser sighted version. The laser sighted version has a switch under the trigger guard that activates the laser sight. The weapon system is setup in a side by side configuration much like a double barrel shotgun. The cartridge can be quickly replaced by depressing an ambidextrous lever located close to the pistol grip. The JPX Jet Projector is available in...

Taser M26C

Taser M26C

Taser was the brain child of Jack Cover a NASA researcher who originally began developing the weapon concept back in 1969. In it's early stages Taser was introduced as a firearm as it utilized a pyrotechnic discharge to fire it's electric darts. In the late 1990's the Taser M26 was introduced and was the second model next to the Air Taser that did not use a pyrotechnic charge but instead used compressed air to fire it's projectile dart cartridge. It was first deployed by law enforcement agencies around 1997 and was in use for approximately eight years prior to the introduction of the Taser X26. The Taser M26 has proven to be one of the most reliable and robust Tasers ever constructed, but it's size and technology may render it a dated weapon by some opinions. The Taser M26C (consumer model) is the size of a standard firearm and offers one shot to the user. The cartridges sold by Taser to consumers...
