There are dozens of options for an accessory rail on the AR-15 platform, but this one is substantially different from others. The Ballista Nautilus system has two different rail sections that are each capable of being rotated 360 degrees in 45 degree increments. So, what does that mean to you? Well, you can put even MORE accessories on your rifle! Although, you may have to get yourself a gym membership. If you wanted to have a bipod on your rifle for prone shooting AND a fore grip for closer situations, you can very well do it and just rotate that rail section to one option or the other.
Or how about running a back up red dot for your powered main optic? Well, you can do that to by rotating one of the rails to a 45 degree position and with an easy twist of your rifle go back and forth from long distance to close range. What other options can you add to this rail? There are more than there is time to post. Although there are other options on the market to solve some of these questions, the Nautilus gives you answers to questions you haven’t even thought of yet. I guess the last question is whether you really need to spend $795.00 on such a thing. Check out the movie after the stats:
“Nautilus Rotating Rail 7″
The NRR consists of 2 separate and adjustable rail systems. Both sections are comprised of 4 individual Picatinny 1913 rails, which can be rotated 360 degrees, in 45 degree increments, in either direction by depressing the actuating button. It is constructed of aircraft grade, 6061 T6 hard-anodized aluminum. It can be mounted to any AR style platform. This revolutionary design allows the user to have instant access to 8 different accessories without the use of tools or the removal of other devices. This shift on the fly technology provides a significant advantage to the user in any sport, tactical or combat situation.
