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.”
Great. So now that police sniper can hit you from 500 yards away every time.
Oh dear, something else for the one man band Obama Government to ban in the U.S.A. then provide free, but at our taxpayer's expense to the Taliban and Al Q'aeda to use against us.
GEE,and Ill bet it will cost an ARM AND A LEG…500 yards with a .223 is BS,too much wind drift…more likely 2 to 300 yards….
Bob, competitors in nra matches have been hitting the x ring with .223 ar 15s out to 600 yards for years and years, myself included.
Now DHS really can get the upper hand on the American public-Obama and Holder will jump on this like "flys on S—!"
I hope he is also equipped with a Barrett and can knock one down at a mile!!
Sorry, but it's easy to do at 600 yds with the right load and a bit of experience reading the wind!
