Field proven with 10+ years of use by global law enforcement, the M26c is a full form personal protection device delivering 5 seconds of effect, putting control of the situation back in your hands. The size and design is preferred by those desiring a feel closer to a small firearm, but the effect is TASER's patented incapacitating pulse.

TASER personal protection devices use replaceable cartridges containing inert, compressed nitrogen to fire two small probes that are attached to 15 foot (4.5 meter) insulated conductive wires. Energy is sent over the wires into the probes, which can penetrate up to approximately two cumulative inches of clothing. The charge is transmitted between the two probes and is designed to jam the sensory and motor functions to inhibit muscular control. This NMI effect continues in 5 second cycles each time you press the trigger. The M26C personal protection device can also be used in direct contact stun mode.

TASER CEWs are the only personal protection products that allow you to take control of your personal safety by consistently incapacitating aggressive, dangerous people.



Safer and more effective than other personal protection options, such as sprays or direct contact stuns, which require potentially dangerous chemicals or close range to an attacker and often prove to be ineffective on individuals under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol.


Keeps You Safe at a Distance

Unlike other personal protection devices which require you to be close to the target, TASER CEWs are effective at a range of up to 15 feet, which keeps you out of harm's way.


Easy To Use

The ADVANCED TASER M26C has been designed to withstand rugged use and features a quick action safety and trigger mechanism for easy use.


Full Sized Design

Based on the same design used by law enforcement worldwide, the M26c is a full sized CEW with a handle similar to a firearm, providing similar handling and use.
