TRACKINGPOINT UNVEILS 750 SERIES HUNTING RIFLES

Posted by on Jan 18, 2014 in Labs |

750_SideProfile

TrackingPoint™, creator of the world’s first Precision Guided Firearm (PGF) system, announced the debut of its 750 Series of smart hunting rifles at the 2014 NSSF SHOT Show in Las Vegas. Delivering TrackingPoint’s TTX (Tag Track Xact) technology on popular lightweight rifles allows for dynamic hunting at effective ranges up to 750 yards. The 750 Series smart rifles are offered in three calibers: 308 Winchester, 300 Winchester Magnum, and 7mm Remington Magnum.

“TrackingPoint continues to broaden its line of Smart Rifles with the launch of the 750 Series of Precision-Guided Firearms,” said John Lupher, TrackingPoint CEO. “The new 750 Line will appeal to the classic game hunter who is also excited by the groundbreaking possibilities of TrackingPoint TTX: hitting big game on the move, across valleys, up steep mountains, down into steep valleys, off-hand, unsupported with digital tagging stabilization. A TrackingPoint hunter can be as good as the greatest marksmen who ever lived.”

TrackingPoint’s PGF system is changing real-world marksmanship by enabling a shooter to track and hit moving targets at extreme ranges, and enabling mastery within minutes. The 750 Series PGF automatically records video of every shot for the entire hunt while also streaming live video to a smartphone or tablet.

The new TrackingPoint 750 rifles are priced at $9,995 and pre-orders are being taken at the SHOT Show as well as at www.tracking-point.com, with deliveries expected to begin in the second quarter of 2014.

TrackingPoint is showcasing the 750 Series during the SHOT Show, January 14-17 from its exhibit at Booth 12451 on Level 2 of the Sands Expo Center. To learn more, visit the company booth or go to www.tracking-point.com.

Posted by on Dec 12, 2013 in Labs |

The TrackingPoint XS4 has a range of 1,200 yards. It features a 27″ Krieger barrel, Magnum Surgeon action and McMillan A5 adjustable stock.

The rifle’s 27-inch, Krieger™ cut-barrel is fitted in a traditional-style, adjustable McMillan A5 chassis. It also features TrackingPoint’s longest parallax-free zoom: 6 to 35X.

“Our customers have been asking for the power of our 338 Lapua Magnum smart rifles in the form factor of our popular XS3 hunting model,” said John Lupher, Chief Technology Officer for TrackingPoint. “One of the best parts of working with our community of TrackingPoint PGF owners is that we can learn from their feedback and develop products to suit customer needs as our company grows.”

Popular Science Best of What’s New 2013

Posted by on Nov 22, 2013 in Labs |

TrackingPoint™, creator of the world’s first Precision Guided Firearm (PGF) system, today announced it is the recipient of a Best of What’s New Award from Popular Science Magazine for its 1,200 yard range Xact System™ PGF. The product and other award winners will be featured in the December 2013 issue.

The Xact System PGF allows hunters and target shooting enthusiasts to accurately hit targets at ranges up to 1,200 yards through the system’s Networked Tracking Scope. The scope provides the user with a live picture of the target in a fighter jet-style heads up display (HUD) along with variables and conditions such as range in yards, wind direction and speed, temperature, pressure, and degree of inclination. Users tag a target by pressing a single button, which prompts a blue X to appear in the HUD. Once the X changes to red, the Xact System has finished its calculations and the user can fire at the target with an incredibly high degree of accuracy.

“For more than a quarter century, Popular Science has devoted its December issue to the year’s most remarkable innovations. The Best of What’s New Awards is our magazine’s top honor, and the 100 awardees are selected from a pool of thousands. Each winner is handpicked and revolutionary in its own way.
