Ballista Tactical Nautilus Rotating Rail

posted on September 6, 2012


Ballista Tactical Systems has released its Nautilus Rotating Rail for AR-platform carbine rifles, which allows shooters to reconfigure firearm accessories without removing them from the rails.

The Nautilus Rotating Rail is 7 inches in length, and is a single unit containing eight individual 1913 Picatinny rails, in two sections comprised of four rails each. Each section can be rotated 360 degrees in either direction, via two buttons that allow rotation in 45-degree increments.

Constructed of aircraft grade, 6061 T6 hard-anodized aluminum, the Nautilus Rotating Rail is built to withstand wear and tear. Stainless-steel ball bearings ensure a tight fit, and are designed to perform in the worst conditions, even during exposure to water, sand and mud, while maintaining zero on optical systems.

Ballista Tactical offers the Nautilus Rotating Rail in four different color variations such as dark earth, matte black, coyote tan and olive drab for $549.
