The RAP17 paintball marker is made of metal alloy and hard plastic. The slide and internal mechanism are made of hardened metal alloy and steel that can withstand drops, rough use and abuse. The RAP17 functions like a real handgun with blowback action and strong kickback. It's powered by a refillable internal built-in CO2 reservoir inside the handgrip which can shoot 30 rounds of .43 cal paintballs per each fill. Filling up CO2 is easy, the RAP17 package comes with a fill adapter that can be connected to any regular CO2 tank (45g, 200g, 9oz, 12oz, etc.) to fill up the RAP17.

A 12g disposable CO2 cylinder version of the RAP17 is also available. This version is called RAP17 EX, EX stands for external. This is having the 12g disposable CO2 cylinder locate inside the pistol grip that capable of firing more than 30 rounds.

Unlike other RAP Series, the RAP17 doesn't eject shell casings. The paintballs are loaded into a magazine which can hold 10 rounds and the magazine is inserted into the handgrip. Just like a real handgun, the RAP17 stops shooting when the magazine is emptied. The muzzle velocity is adjustable from 180 - 300 fps.

For a moment, I thought someone had hacked my LJ setting to only see posts from you...

Then I realized that you just post..........A LOT.


Someone paying you?

Not much. But I'd like to do more. And kitiara's recent posts on her LEO training have convinced me of the importance of realistic training.

Two of my assistants are gun enthusiast. One has built his own guns from scratch, including a rather impressive scale model of a canon in brass, the other used to be S.W.A.T. before joining our team. He has won several long range championships. We are thinking of doing some company sponsored gun range event, since between just a handful of us we have several hundred guns and rifles. Odd given we are a tech company…

I will have to check those out - I wonder if the smaller paintballs are more accurate? The price is comparable to the good quality replica airsoft guns I've seen (same things - mags, blowback, CO2 powered).

Although one issue we ended up having in sims training was that after the first scenario or two, it became pretty hard to tell where your new hits were on the person even though you were using paint marking rounds. I suppose if you had them wear a "paper suit" and traded it out throughout the day that might work. But mostly the way we played it was that they'd tell you when they got hit and where based on feel. However, the instructors were pretty darn beat up by the time it was over and done with.
