Hello future, we have arrived.
The new Tracking Point AR-15 rifles feature technology that was once the stuff of science fiction movies.
Imagine a rifle that can gather information about a target, determine the best shot and fire itself. Tracking Point’s new AR series can do that. They feature the state-of-the-art smart optics technology that put the company on the map.
The smart optics scope can measure, track and tag targets, and relay live feed to a smartphone, tablet or computer device. It uses a laser rangefinder and computer sensors to find and measure the most accurate firing path to the target.
Shooters can tag their target in the scope by pressing a red button near the trigger. Once the target is tagged, the optics will take some measurements and auto-correct itself by adjusting the position of the rifle’s reticle. The higher-end models will feature an “Advanced” mode, in which the rifle shoots the trigger when it finds the best firing path to the target.
Tracking Point is also developing a feature to make the rifle compatible with Google Glass, so that someone wearing the glasses can see a live feed of what the shooter is seeing through the scope.
As for the hardware, Tracking Point’s AR-15 rifles feature Daniel Defense furniture and Magpul accessories. The rifles are chambered in 5.56 NATO and 300 AAC Blackout.
This video has some more details about the rifles’ features.
As you can see in the video, Tracking Point is marketing these rifles primarily as military weapons. The US Army has already begun testing the company’s rifles. That being said, these rifles do have their place in hunting and sport shooting. Tracking Point’s 750 series is primarily geared towards hunters. We are interested to see how these rifles will be used in outdoor sports in the future.
The rifles start at $9,950 and are now available for pre-order. For more information, visit their website.
