PepperBall® unveils the new VKS PRO™ as a powerful non-lethal option for law enforcement
Lake Forest, Ill., — PepperBall®, a world leader in non-lethal solutions for law enforcement, has introduced the PepperBall VKS PRO™ carbine. The new VKS PRO is the ultimate multi-payload, long-range, semi-automatic launcher with adjustable kinetics and upgraded options. Mirroring the AR-15 platform, this effective non-lethal solution is exceptionally accurate, easy to handle and a solid option for both daily patrol and crowd control.
Effective at up to 150 feet, the VKS PRO offers many new features, driven by real-world input from law enforcement officers worldwide.
The VKS Pro offers:
- Dual Feed with Twist Lock Barrel Technology to easily switch from magazine to hopper fed on the fly
- Dual Air Source allowing users to choose either 88g disposable cartridges or an HPA bottle butt-stock 13ci tank or remote airline to tank of choice
- Adjustable Folding Foregrip; this new feature brings improved precision in high stress deployment situations
- 14-inch Micro-honed Barrel that is designed to accurately shoot both PepperBall Round and VXR Projectiles
“We’re excited to make these new upgrades to the classic VKS launcher,” said Scott Quarles, director of product development for PepperBall. “Working with our law enforcement partners to identify key upgrades, we are proud to offer an updated version of the VKS launcher that has been so widely adopted in the field,” concluded Quarles.
In addition, the VKS Pro has no recoil, a M-LOCK hand guard that is lightweight and robust enough to handle performance accessories and an ambidextrous quick disconnect, which allows for a wide range of motion, enabling true ambidextrous launcher handling for both left and right-handed users.
The VKS PRO is also available with enhanced accessory options. The PepperBall VKS PRO PLUS offers a 15 cubic inch 4500psi capacity Carbon Fiber Tank that is 15% lighter than the aluminum version and gives 33% more shots per fill, and a hard anodized removable Red Dot Sight that is shock, impact, fog, water, and vibration resistant.
The VKS Pro and VKS PRO PLUS will be featured at the PepperBall booth 72205 at the SHOT Show, January 17-20, 2023, Las Vegas, NV.
The PepperBall system is a non-lethal solution for law enforcement that has been used by over 10,000 agencies worldwide. The combination of powerful and accurate launchers such as the VKS, along with the patented PepperBall PAVA projectiles, offers law enforcement the time and range necessary to make critical decisions and accomplish the mission at hand.
