The ARWEN 37 and its siblings are the first multi-purpose, multi-shot weapon system to combine light weight, high accuracy and the ability to fire up to 5 shots before reloading.
The ARWEN 37 weapon is light: 3.11kg (6lb, 14oz) unloaded or 3.83kg (8lb, 4oz) loaded with 5 AR-1 baton rounds; finished in matt black and, because of its design, is very safe. It is very easy to use, being suitable for right or left-handed operators of any height or build. Exposed parts are made of anodized aluminum alloy and plastics, which are unaffected by damp environments; where steel parts are necessary, they are in shielded positions where they can be kept lubricated and protected from rust. Routine stripping, cleaning, lubrication and reassembly are easily done with the simple tools, brushes and cloths; cleaning brushes and lubricants can be provided.
A carrying sling is provided as standard and an optional carrying case can be supplied with each weapon. ARWEN 37 is easily loaded from a cartridge belt carrying two detachable fasteners which are compatible with most military style webbing. The special style of ARWEN 37 ammunition makes an important contribution to its weight and space-saving design. The cartridge case safely contains the propellant gases without the support of a chamber: This feature contributes greatly to the simplicity of the system. When a round has been fired, the spent case is ejected to the right. Cartridge cases and batons used for training can be recovered and refurbished for re-use, keeping down training costs. 37mm ARWEN projectiles are spun by the rifled barrel, so that they are extremely accurate.
