Tracking Point, a company in Texas, has begun selling a new “smart rifle” that allows an inexperienced shooter to hit a target 1,000 yards away. With a price tag of $27,500, the rifle has a scope allows the shooter to tag the target by marking a red dot on it within the crosshairs. The rifle will only fire when the crosshairs on locked on the red dot, even when the safety is off and the trigger is pulled.
While experienced snipers are often able to hit a target of 1,000 or more yards, this rifle is unique because the scope automatically accounts for distance, gravity, wind speed, humidity and other variables that can affect a shot. This makes it an extremely accurate weapon.
The rifle has a magazine capacity of five rounds and uses .300 or .338 caliber ammunition.
The company, which is run by military veterans, hopes to land a contract with the military to produce the technology for service men and women. The rifle has Wi-Fi capabilities, making it desirable in a combat situation.
