Company Chairman David Luxton, founder of Simunition, commented, “The growing demand for PepperBall® with its proven record of safe deployment in thousands of incidents is driving requirements for new and versatile delivery platforms. We’re bringing to market more innovations in 2017 than have been seen in the company’s 20-year history.”

  • A new Tactical Carbine launcher – featuring select-fire capability and a high-capacity air system for extended mission time, all in a compact configuration.
  • A new variant of the popular VKS M4 pattern launcher – now in a select-fire version with a high-capacity magazine that fires both round and shaped PepperBall® projectiles, for more versatility.
  • A first-ever 12-gauge PepperBall® shotgun cartridge – developed in response to customer requests for an alternative to deliver both a kinetic punch and an effective disabling irritant in a single projectile using a standard pump-action shotgun like the Remington 870.
  • A new 40MM PepperBall® fused projectile – fired from either a stand-alone pneumatic launcher or from an under-mount on the familiar M4, delivering a 3-second time-delayed high-volume overhead payload of PepperBall® for crowd control.
  • And, a first-ever PepperBall® drone - for expanded mission capability, combining on-board camera surveillance and evidence collection with precision deployment of PepperBall® irritant powder utilizing a unique targeting and release technology.
