The Sg-82 was a short-range weapon—with a maximum range of only thirty-five meters—though with an optimum range of fifteen meters, it was ideal for crowd control. The Sg-82's stun setting ensured targets were incapacitated without suffering injury. Simple thumb controls were used to adjust blast frequency, intensity and vector. The power pack provided energy for both the sonic blaster and the stun club built in to the weapon's handle.
Behind the scenesEdit
