Gerber has a long-running relationship with the U.S. military, providing proven tactical equipment for soldiers deploying overseas. The Propel Downrange Auto knife is a direct result of Gerber’s relationship with military personnel, and there’s more to this automatic knife’s design than its desert tan color. Building on the field-proven performance and fast, one-handed blade deployment of the long-popular 06 Auto knife, the Propel Downrange packs the same level of full-size utility and durability in a slimmer, more pocket-friendly profile. The Propel Downrange is as easy to handle and store as it is to open under pressure.

Premium S30V Tanto Blade
Like a good friend, a tactical knife needs to rise to any occasion, even difficult or unforeseen ones. The Propel Downrange Auto’s proven quick, one-handed opening action is matched only by its premium-grade S30V steel construction. You can rely on the S30V steel blade for all its intended uses and even some unintended ones—like opening that crate, stat—without worrying about compromising blade integrity. The knife’s reliable plunge lock and safety switch keep the blade locked open while in use and safely locked closed when stowed in your pocket. The partially serrated tanto-style blade adds utility when cutting stubborn materials like nylon cord or webbing, but maintains the precise cuts of a fine edge when necessary. The black oxide blade coating minimizes reflectivity and adds corrosion resistance, while the tan G-10 composite handle matches desert camouflage fatigues.

Three-Position Clip
Like a finely crafted tool, the Propel Downrange Auto feels balanced in your hand and is comfortable to hold. The composite G-10 handle’s textured surface provides all-conditions security and can take the beating that comes with field deployment. You can even customize the belt clip to meet your carrying preference. The three-way adjustable clip can be set for left- or right-hand bias and tip-up or tip-down orientation when stowed in your pocket or on your belt.

Proudly Built in Portland, Oregon
A knife is only as useful as it is durable, easy to carry and easy to use. The Propel Downrange Auto knife is designed to be your daily driver. The full-size, automatic blade offers instant deployment in a slim design that fades into your pocket like a smaller knife. Proudly built in Portland, Oregon, the Propel Downrange is designed to last a lifetime.

Federal law

The Switchblade Act, (Pub.L. 85-623, 72 Stat. 562, enacted on August 12, 1958, and codified in 15 U.S.C. §§ 12411245), prohibits possession on Federal lands, Indian reservations, military bases, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and other protectorates. It prohibits manufacture and sale of switchblades in interstate commerce.The act was amended in 1986 to also restrict ballistic knives. Federal law controls Federal aspects only, and does not mandate prohibition within an individual state. It does say specified knives can not be mailed through the U.S.Postal Service, and provides penalty exceptions for other common carriers/shipping companies doing normal business.

18 U.S.C. § 1716(g)(2) provides this summary:

Federal law prohibits shipment of automatic knives across state lines, with the following exceptions: Switchblade knives can be shipped: (1) to civilian or Armed Forces supply or procurement officers and employees of the Federal Government ordering, procuring, or purchasing such knives in connection with the activities of the Federal Government; (2) to supply or procurement officers of the National Guard, the Air National guard, or militia of a state, territory or the District of Columbia ordering, procuring, or purchasing such knives in the connection with the activities of such organization; (3) to supply or procurement officers or employees of the municipal government of the District of Columbia or the government of any State or Territory, or any county, city or other political subdivision of a State or Territory; procuring or purchasing such knives in connection with the activities of such government. (4) to manufacturers of such knives or bona fide dealers therein in connection with any shipment made pursuant of an order from any person designated in paragraphs (1), (2), and (3).

15 U.S.C. § 1244 provides, in summary: Knives can be shipped by common carrier, that sale, transportation or distribution, possession or introduction into interstate commerce of switchblade knives is authorized if it is pursuant to a contract with the armed forces or any member or employee thereof acting in the performance of his or her duty may possess switchblade knives and may have them shipped to him and sold to him or her. The possession and transportation upon his or her person of a switchblade knife or a blade 3 inches or less is authorized to any handicap individual who has the use of only one arm.
