**Cycling for Model 196

Recent field studies have concluded that cartridge-based projectors perform best when given adequate time to cycle. By definition: Cycling implies the ability for the gas chamber within a cartridge-fired projector to replenish itself with fresh oxygen. When achieved the projector yields a more consistent burn rate in each charge fired. Failure to do so results in less oxygen yielding lower combustion levels (e.g. reduced muzzle velocities) for subsequent RDD Devices fired at less than 30-second intervals.

All of our projectors have adjustable power controls that makes for effective shooting at close range or sizable distance even from the bird's eye view of a helicopter. This allows for quiet propulsion and less trauma to the animal when properly applied — a real plus when immobilizing penned animals.

The Model 196 Power Control:

5 position Power Control knob in conjunction with strength of charge (Brown Green and Yellow)

CAUTION: Do not use charges with wads or designed to use with starter pistols or nail guns!  Our Pneu-Dart projectors are designed to use Pneu-Dart CCI charges. Recommended CCI charges are Brown (level 2), Green (level 3) and Yellow (level 4). THE USE OF NON-APPROVED PNEU-DART POWER CHARGES MAY CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE PROJECTOR AND WILL AUTOMATICALLY VOID THE WARRANTY OF YOUR PROJECTOR.

The use of any RDD projector without the means of an adjustable power control can prove to be a detriment to the welfare of the animal. Please refer to the Power Control Chart for charge and power control setting recommendations.
