RAP47 is the first "enemy” fire arm in the Real Action Paintball product line. Designed with 1-to-1 scale to accurately replicate the Kalashnikov AK-47, the most widely used assault rifle in the world, this RAP marker satisfies the many requests received from military and police agencies for an “opposing force” weapon to enhance their training combat training simulations.
The RAP4 AK47 is designed with the new Military Enhance Training System (METS). The new METS technology provides outstanding power and accuracy, propelling a paintball marking round over 70 yards with the muzzle velocity of 350 feet per second. The METS technology also provides two additional features that makes the weapon perform with much more realism. First, the marker needs to be cocked after each magazine reload, mimicking the standard operation of real-word firearms, and second, the marker ceases to operate when the magazine is emptied.
These features make for ideal training as they are tools to enhance an operator’s muscle memory in high-stress environments. The METS design is far superior to all previous releases with more reliability, more accuracy, and more power, and makes training as real as possible.
Other key features include:
- Adjustable for semi- or fully-automatic fire
- Ambidextrous rate-of-fire selector switch
- Shell casings are ejected after each shot
- Clip-fed 25 round magazine
- Can be fully submerged in water
- Velocity of 350 fps to 400 fps (adjustable)
- All metal construction
- Air power source hidden inside the butt stock
- Simple to operate and easy to maintain
With all of these things to off, the new RAP47 takes its place among the RAP4 product line as the final ingredient for a complete training solution.Since the RAP47 has more power, it works best with the new made in U.S.A. .43 caliber paintball. The new paintball yield the best performance with its new gelatin formula. These paintballs are formulated to work with the increased power of the RAP47
The Real Action Paintball AK47 is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
I have use the Tippman 98 custom and the A5. This gun is a totally different style of playing, but in a good way.
I have the RAP47 AK47 paintball gun. Nothing needed to add to this gun.
It has no hopper and the air is hidden in the Stock.
Not every paintball field will allow it because it only adjust to 350fps.
I believe that the markers from RAP4.com is the best way to train and with cheaper cost over Simunition (real guns that shoot paintball too). It cost about 2 dollars a bullet for simunitions and only about .08 per shot for the RAP4. I believe this style of marker is going to change the way we play woods-ball. I love this gun and will stand the pain for the more real life gaming. If you like SOCOM them you will love playing with this marker. I will have this gun as a upgrade option at my indoor Kabul theme field for the terroirest players to use and the M4 for the ones playing the good guys. Thanks to Jim @ RAP4.com my order was placed fast and I had great customer service.
In my conclusion I believe this is the best marker for training and real life paintball gaming
