PepperBall unveils new PepperBall patrol carbine

Effective at up to 150 feet, the carbine can be used for daily patrol and tactical situations

LAKE FOREST, Ill. — PepperBall has announced the launch of its all-new PepperBall Patrol Carbine (PPC) for daily patrol and tactical situations.

Effective at up to 150 feet, the PPC is versatile and portable, according to the company. Field-tested by law enforcement agencies nationwide, the PPC incorporates the input and development notes from patrol officers.

“After compiling years of officer feedback, the PPC is our first launcher purpose-built for daily use, while ensuring the most compliant and inventive deployment tools to meet the active needs of federal, state and local agencies,” said Scott Quarles, director of product development for PepperBall.



The PPC is a semi-automatic launcher featuring a micro-honed barrel with fully adjustable aluminum sights mounted to a continuous Picatinny rail. The MIL-STD 1913 top rail accepts red dot sights and other laser options, while the Mlok AR-15 handguard allows users to customize to their daily needs. The fully adjustable air stock transfers the weight balance further back between the hands, which creates faster handling, sighting and reduced fatigue. Multiple quick disconnect location points allow for the sling mount to be used.

The PPC can be powered by either HPA or 88g disposable cartridges. A fully contained firing engine prevents contaminants and dirt from disrupting any deployment, allowing the non-lethal device to fire more than 2,000 projectiles before the unit’s first routine maintenance is required, according to the company.
