We’re pretty sure (based on the video) that “Venture X” is going to be a combination of Remington’s 783 rifle and TrackingPoint’s “precision guided” scope technology. And yet, this (pictured) is all we get to see of it here at NRA. With the announcement coming in such close proximity to the show you’d expect them to at least talk about it, but none of the Remington reps I’ve found have been “authorized” to speak about it. We also know that they are holding focus group meetings during the show about this rifle, at which press are persona non grata and the participants have been sworn to avoid all media members. And yet, still no pictures and still not a single sample on the floor. There’s a difference between being purposefully cagey about details to induce hype, and just being annoyingly stubborn about saying anything about a product. This is definitely the latter. At least, for those of us trying to cover the thing.
