AR-15 type rifles are known for their ability to be accessorized. The Ballista Nautilus Rotating Rail allows you to change the position of any of your rail-mounted accessories in 45-degree increments. If you put an accessory on the bottom of a rail and you need it to be on the side, with the Ballista you can easily change that position. Made of high-grade aircraft aluminum, the Ballista NRR is well-made, durable and light. It can be a benefit in many different scenarios in both the competition/sporting world and the tactical/home defense environment.

    Rob, you should have worn light clothing when doing demo with a black AR. Hard to see detail.

    I have a rifle and not a carbine length barrel. I wish they made one longer

    Matt, it is heavier than many other rails, but shouldn't prevent the use of any specific accessory. Ballista also just released a second design which is lighter and only has ONE section that runs the full length of the fore-end.

    Interesting idea. Would this add much weight or prohibit many devices from being mounted that are longer?
