Remington is coming out with their 20/20 line of rifles at the show, which includes an AR-15 or two as well as the usual bolt action rifles. Not to be out-done, TrackingPoint has just announced that they’ll be rolling out three AR-15 rifles in 5.56, 7.62 (x39 presumably, but they didn’t say) and my favorite 300 BLK. The rifles will run about $9,500, which is nearly half the price of an original TrackingPoint rifle. The original plan was to introduce a way to track and shoot at multiple targets when the AR-15 was introduced, but that seems to have been canned as the video only shows one tag and one firing. We’ll see more at SHOT Show, but make the jump for the bumf.
Three new precision guided firearms allow the novice shooter to engage long range targets with semi-automatic rifle speed.
TrackingPoint™, creator of the world’s first Precision Guided Firearm (PGF) system, today announced the debut of the TrackingPoint 500 Series ARs for the modern sporting rifle market at ShowStoppers @ CES 2014 in Las Vegas. The three PGF rifles, offered in 7.62, .300 BLK and 5.56 calibers, incorporate the company’s ground breaking Tag Track Xact technology, accurately locking onto and hitting moving targets at distances up to 500 yards.
With stabilized target selection, target tracking and guided firing the 500 Series semi-automatic AR products enable anyone to be an expert marksman out to the 500 yard effective range of the firearm, even from difficult firing positions, such as kneeling, standing or even lying beneath an automobile.
“TrackingPoint is excited to be able to expand and adapt its TTX technology for the AR semi-automatic market. For the first time, AR enthusiasts will be able to make fast and accurate shots on moving targets out to five football fields away,” said John Lupher, TrackingPoint CEO. “We expect not only strong demand for the 500 Series AR products, but also a growing demand for our technology across the industry.”
Introductory pricing of the 500 Series models begin at $9,950. Orders are currently being taken for TrackingPoint AR products, with delivery starting in October, 2014. You can apply to purchase the new product at tracking-point.com/apply-now
