Flashback: New TASER Weapons Produced For Crowd Control

The Home office has confirmed it’s eyeing the Taser eXtended Range Electronic Projectile (XREP) for possible deployment with UK police forces, the Guardian reports.

Taser describes the XREP as “the most technologically advanced projectile ever deployed from a 12-gauge shotgun”.

The company elaborates: “It delivers a similar Neuro Muscular Incapacitation (NMI) bio-effect as our handheld TASER® X26™ ECD, but can be delivered to a maximum effective range of 100 feet (30.48 meters), combining blunt impact force. The battery supply is fully integrated into the chassis and provides the power to drive the XREP projectile engine.”

Taser co-founder Rick Smith told reporters last month at the US roll-out of the XREP: “It’s a bigger projectile to reach out to extended ranges. It’s moving faster; it’s going to, potentially, cause a much bigger bruise, contusions. It’s going to be a pretty bad thing.”
