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
