Merlin Recoilless Waterjet Disruptor

The Merlin Recoilless Waterjet Disruptor is ideal for target disruption where forensic evidence must be preserved and surgical accuracy is required. The Merlin disrupter is user-friendly and easy to assemble, with no breech or tools required for setup and preparation. The Merlin may be manually deployed, even from a camera tripod, causing no damage to either the disrupter or the stand. Maximum recommended standoff is 3 metres dependent on target.
