Madbull to produce the ‘RIPR’ (Rifle Integrated Power Rail)
Madbull Airsoft has posted some ominous 3D rendered pictures on their Facebook account of what some are describing as the LEGO missing link, but is in fact the RIPR or Rifle Integrated Power Rail by RESET. This product in its real steel form was introduced to the world at ShotShow 2011 by a company called RESET Inc. and effectively eliminates the need for multiple power cells to drive your AR-15 accessories.
With the integrated replaceable AA battery pack, power is feed to small gold plated contacts in the grooves of the picatinny rails where existing accessories can use an adapter to take advantage of the power source. The ultimate goal is that manufacturers can create much smaller and more powerful accessories without being restricted by its own power source.
Madbull hasn’t released any specifications at this time so it’s unsure if the Madbull RIPR will completely replicate the real steel counterpart, but it’s very interesting to say the least.
