The “Bang Saber” is better than just a legal flashbang for civilian use. While the Bang Saber civilian flashbang might not be quite as effective as a military or law enforcement Noise Flash Diversionary Device (NFDD), it has the distinct advantage of being 1) a reusable distraction device and 2) a civilian legal flashbang. Here is the release.

TS Bang Saber Civilian Flash Bang

If you’ve ever thrown an M-84 or CTS 9-Banger at your day job, you will like those. If you’ve ever banged somebody within an FPS game, you will like these. Fact is, whether you’re going FISHing (Fighting In Someone’s House) or trying to liven up a boring cotillion, you’re going to like these.

The TS Bang Saber 2.0 civilian legal reusable flashbang is manufactured for Tactical Sh!t by  Helius Engineering. It’s for training, “distracting,” or just for fun.

The 2.0 bangs just as hard as its predecessor but is now slimmer and much lighter. Ounces equal pounds and pounds equal pain…especially when you’re banging someone.

The Bang Saber is made in the USA. Operation is very simple: it utilizes a 12 gauge or 9mm blank or a 209 primer for ignition. Just load the blank or primer into the body, remove the pin, and toss the device where you want it. 

Note: this is not a “flashbang grenade,” or “stun grenade,” or other device you’re used to seeing in movies. it’s not an explosive device at all, though, as always, safety measures are prudent.  Although technically a blank firing device, it still has risk of injury or damage (maybe fire?).

You’ll get a flash of bright light, some smoke, and an approximate “bang” noise around the 120-160db level. The exact amount of candela and decibels produced by Bang Saber distraction devices will depend on the type of blank used.

We can think of several ways a legal flashbang might come in handy: training police officers, for instance, or adding some stress inoculation to a range or training day. It probably borders on the edge of excessive force for your typical paintball or airsoft match, but who knows – maybe your facility will allow it! 

Here are a few things to know about the Saber civilian flashbang:

  • No training or certification needed to purchase (yes, you can buy these flashbangs online).
  • Due to the manufacturer’s difficulty with obtaining necessary materials, limited numbers are available s: if they’re out when you try to buy one, sign up for notifications
  • Must sign a liability waiver to purchase.
  •  
The Bang Saber ignites using a blank cartridge like these 12 gauge blanks. It will also use 9mm blanks.

Flash/Sound Diversionary Devices

Capt. John Kolman, Ret. (LAPD  D Platoon SWAT) and Cmdr Sid Heal, Ret (LACSD Special Enforcement Bureau) defined an NFDD in a paper for the Justice Department, as you’ll read below. Contrary to the common vernacular, it is not a “flash bang grenade.” It could not be a grenade in the traditional sense and still be labeled a less lethal device. 

What is a flashbang? “A flash/bang diversionary device produces a loud bang with a brilliant light that is intended to cause confusion and distraction to provide a tactical team with a few seconds of advantage.”

And that is just the Bang Saber does. 

Get your bang on.

    Sounds like a better system than the CO2 cartridge Bangers.
    Wonder what the Per unit cost is?
