Our next topic of discussion about Less Lethal Arms is a self-defense unit produced by Jiun An Technology Co, LTD in Taiwan. You may remember an earlier posting about the Raysun X1 ECD type device, well this is it’s little brother the Raysun M1. The unit has an angled curve much like the Taser C2 and Kelin Remote Needle Gun, but unlike these units and it’s big brother, the M1 doesn’t rely on stun technology. This diverse Less Lethal Alternative platform has a variety of defensive options to offer it’s handler. The double barrel, over/under configuration fires a pepper bullet cartridge, a pepper powder cartridge, or SOS signal flare. The signal flare has a reach of 100 meters, the pepper ball can strike out at 12-15 meters, and the pepper powder cartridge is useful for disabling multiple targets at a close ranges of 3-5 meters. An optional high beam light cartridge can also be deployed for 60 minutes of continues use at 30 meters and can be used as a disorientation strobe device. The Raysun M1 has a laser sight for aiming as well as a small LED light for darker areas. It’s safety features include a red light indicator and a safety buzzer to let the user know the system is activated and armed. It’s dimensions measure 125x55x30 mm, for a fairly compact self-defense unit. The standard package includes the M1 unit, 3 mode LED cartridge x1, Pepper bullet cartridge x 1, Pepper powder cartridge x 3, one soft carrying case, and one belt holster. A rechargeable battery is optional, other optional ammo types include paintball and rubber bullets. The unit comes in a red/black or gray/white color scheme. I have attempted to find a U.S. dealer of this product but have been unable to do so yet. I will keep you posted on further details.
