Press release [via Ammoland.com]

TrackingPoint announces the special edition NightDragon Precision-Guided Firearm. The NightDragon semi-automatic 7.62 NATO includes TrackingPoint’s recently introduced Night Vision Kit (NVK). The NVK alone retails for $2,495. Offered at the exclusive price of $12,995 for the first 50 purchases (MSRP normally $15,490), it incorporates the same RapidLok technology found in TrackingPoint’s military Precision-Guided Firearms . . .

“NightDragon is purpose-built for predator domination, hog eradication and homestead defense. It allows for precision target elimination 24/7/365,” said John McHale TrackingPoint’s CEO. “NightDragon is also well suited for herd management and dynamic hunting.”

Key Features and Capabilities

  • Eliminates targets out to 500 yards
  • Tracks targets moving up to 15MPH
  • Night vision capabilities (with IR illuminator attachment)
  • Image Stabilization enables off-hand on-the-move stalking
  • Records voice and video of all engagements
  • RapidLok Target Acquisition and Control System with computerized guided trigger
  • Can be financed for up to 48 months (payments as low as $329/month)

Night Vision

NightDragon incorporates an infrared sensitive CMOS sensor that detects light not visible to the human eye. Depending on the strength of the IR illuminator, targets can be engaged and tracked out to 200 yards at night. As a shooter pulls the trigger, the target is automatically acquired and tracked. When trigger pull completes, the target is instantly eliminated. Total Time-To-Kill (TTK) is approximately 2.5 seconds. RapidLok Fire Control is image stabilized enabling off-hand shots and shots on the run.

Shared Dominance

NightDragon records voice and video. As the shooter engages a target he can voice annotate the recorded video in real-time, creating a rich media experience of his engagement to be shared with friends and family.

Zero-Signature Lethality

When deployed with ShotGlass the shooter is completely unexposed. In effect the shooter becomes the predator with skills well beyond the skills of the predator. Wearing the digital glasses the shooter can see exactly what NightDragon is seeing without exposing their body or head. The scope view is projected into the shooter’s ShotGlass so shooters can acquire predators with virtually no exposure making the shooter undetectable by the predator. Shooters can engage from virtually any hidden position – over berms, over walls, and around corners with extremely high eradication rates.

Pricing and Exclusive Offers

The NightDragon 7.62 retails for $15,490 but the first 50 purchases will be sold at the exclusive offer price of $12,995.

  1. Welcome to the future. When these sorts of armaments become cheep enough for the armed forces of the world to issue them to regular infantry, we will have a paradigm shift in tactical thinking. Combined with drone technology, war will eventually become a video game. When war is no longer seen as “hell,” we will never know peace again.

  2. The technology may be cool, but that press release is so over-the-top with hyperbole that it’s really difficult to separate fact from BS. TTK? What happens if, in all the excitement about using the whiz-bang tech, the shooter actually doesn’t place the pipper on a clean shot? Instead of instant eradication, you get a pissed off hog.

    For $15K+, I’d want to read copy that’s more appropriate for a rifle, instead of video game hype.

  3. I shot their rifle at last year’s Texas Firearms Festival. As a life-long shooter, I will tell you that firing that TP rifle was a singular and mind-blowing experience! I wish that company the best of luck because they are really on to something. Hopefully cost will creep down and availability creep up. No kidding–It was phenomenal!
