The department I work for issues the m-26 taser but we are allowed to purcase out of pocket the x-26. I've seen the x-26 and the x-26c, which look identical to me, so whats the difference between the two, and where can i buy an LE model x-26

the x26c is the civilian model. it runs a 30 sec cycle compared to a 5 sec cycle for LE.

Call TASER and ask who your local LE distributor is.

A related question: What is the difference between the X26 and the X26E?

There is no difference. Training manuals use the general term "X26" while owner manuals use "X26C" for civilian models and "X26E" for LE.

For clarification, the X26C is 10 seconds per trigger pull, but the trigger pulls can be "stacked", i.e. 3 trigger pulls will give a total ride of 30 seconds. The X26E is 5 seconds per trigger pull, but you cannot "stack" cycles. The trigger must be pulled again after 5 seconds to initiate additional cycles.

The only exception to both devices is when you hold the trigger down. The device will push electricity through the probes until the trigger is released or power is drained from the DPM.

Thanks. I was confused by seeing both "X26" and "X26E". Taser's site did not clear things up for me.
