The Ballista AR15 Nautilus Rotating Rail is without a doubt a radical approach to accessorizing the AR15 platform. Many people (myself included) scoffed at the idea of this rotating design when it first hit the market. I will be honest with you… To me it initially came across as a gimmicky novelty. I chalked it up as something aimed at the “mall-ninja” crowd and pretty much dismissed it out of hand. However, in reality nothing could be further from the truth. This is indeed a serious tool for serious AR15 applications. , Gunmart Blog - Click here to read full review

The rotational adjustment is a great tool. It allows adjustment for a more comfortable shooting position as well as accommodating shooting around cover/concealment. The rotational adjustment also helps the shooter utilize modified shooting positions to stabilize the weapon that would be otherwise impossible with a fixed vertical foregrip (such as those previously employed on Weapons A&B)
