The RAP4 Less Lethal Live Rounds are hard wax spheres built to burst on impact. They contain a very fine Capsaicin II (chili pepper based) dust-like powder.Less Lethal Live Agent Rounds (Wax Shell) are filled with enough Capsaicin II powder to irritate a suspect's eyes, nose and throat.
The Less Lethal Live Agent Rounds (Wax Shell) are delivered on-target by a high pressure system with enough kinetic force to get the suspect's attention, unleashing a cloud of Capsaicin II powder into the face (eyes, nose and throat) of the aggressor. The irritant incapacitates them by powerfully stinging their eyes, causing non-fatal breathing difficulties, and creating other extreme but temporary discomfort.
The RAP4 Less Lethal System offers effective tools for achieving suspect compliance. Because the projectiles break upon impact, they do not penetrate skin or pose ricochet hazards, making the RAP4 Less Lethal System ideal for defense even at contact range. As they burst on impact and fill the vicinity with the irritant powder, officers using the RAP4 Less Lethal System often don't have to hit their target to subdue the suspect. Rather, by shooting a hard surface in the suspect's vicinity, the suspect will be overwhelmed by a cloud of irritation powder.
Even when the suspect is running away, the officer can shoot into a wall or object in front of the suspect, leaving the suspect running into a barely visible cloud of irritation powder. RAP4 Less Lethal Live Rounds can be delivered effectively up to 150 feet away. RAP4 Less Lethal Launchers are the recommended delivery system for these and other RAP4 Less Lethal Projectiles, as our launchers replicate M4 duty-issue carbines while being designed specifically to shoot our wide range of .68 caliber less lethal projectiles.
