Tracking Point Night Eagle

blackhawk20web202_0

TrackingPoint, known for their “precision guided firearms” (and corporate / financial issues) has released their latest version of their AR-15-based precision guided firearm, the NightEagle. The NightEagle is fundementally the same general rifle as their M600 Squad Level Precision Guided 5.56 Service Rifle, now adding in night-vision capability through an infrared sensitive CMOS sensor.

Features touted by Tracking Point include:

  • Eliminates targets out to 400 yards
  • Tracks targets moving up to 10 MPH
  • Night vision capabilities (with IR illuminator attachment)
  • Image Stabilization enables off-hand on-the-move stalking
  • Records voice and video of all engagements
  • RapidLok™ Target Acquisition and Control System with computerized guided trigger

Unfortunately, while the weapon can reach out to 400 yards, the night-vision function of the weapon is limited to about 200 yards, depending on the strengh of one’s deployed IR illuminator.

The NightEagle also features “Zero Signature Lethality” which allows the user to shoot the weapon system without having to be deployed behind the weapon. Using their “ShotGlass”, one can stay hidden and fire the weapon.

Pricing is coming down on the weapons. The first 100 customers are offered an introductory price of $7,995 with retail formally pegged at $10,490 (just above the M600).

Financing plans are also available for up to 48 months, which puts payments at about $180/month, but the rifle only comes with a 30-day guarantee.

    Good lord, a 30 day warranty for a rifle that costs as much as a car? For that price I better be getting a 3 year/30,000 round with rangeside assistance.

    • Thomas Weißhuhn

      Someone should do a meltdown video on one and then return it (within the 30 days).

    Didn’t these guys have to stop taking orders due to financial issues a few months ago?

    • JD

      They are back on track.

    I take it despite the implied military features such as being able to fire the weapon with your head down and such, the need for an illuminator means it is not suitable for the military. In other words, this package is basically for mall ninjas with lots of money.

    • Tritro29

      Since when the .mil in the US doesn’t employ IR illiminators? What’s the AN/PEQ family? Calzones?

      • Bob

        … I’m thinking of floodlights type thing… You know, so that anybody with nightvision can see you six miles away… OK, I’m not a SEAL here….

        • Tritro29

          I’m going to acknowledge that I’m coming from the principle this is largely on par with our IWT systems. Only with a “neater” package and on this one half the capabilities of “equivalent systems”. Although I believe same class of systems at TP and IWT are largely similar. The IWT systems have all been “accepted” as military items. The smoking gun was even captured by ISIS in march when they managed to kill at least one Russian operative and displayed a Charon/Charon light atop a modified AKS-74N. So if our squirrels use them, this falls right into that category. Which off course means nothing as far as the US is concerned, although, again, I jumped the gun when you said IR illuminators.

          So there maybe I misunderstood you or assumed too much. Anyway just to clear the misunderstanding.

            Apparently I should do some Googling and find out what I’m talking about.

  • that front sight post looks off

    • Vhyrus

      Unanswered question: why the hell does a gun like this have a front sight post?

      • Paladin

        IIRC it’s not actually an FSP, but part of the calibration system for the optic.

  • HH

    what a crappy product intro video. Too dark. Choppy. Nonsense. Learn nothing about the product from that

  • john huscio

    Is this gonna show up in an episode of NCIS too?

  • iksnilol

    How many Makarovs for one?

    • Tritro29

      COMECON is dead bre, we do however accept, blow, organs as well as full human beings as collateral. Also more seriously, it’s expensive upwards 2K in USD for the Charon Nano.

      • iksnilol

        2k for the Nano?

        That actually seems reasonable. That’s a thing I’ve always liked about Russian technology.

        • Tritro29

          The nano is VERY limited when compared to either 640M or even Charon. Also Rouble has gone down a lot. Two years ago this was at almost 4K.

          • iksnilol

            How much is the Charon and what can the Nano do?

  • Uniform223

    Owning a complete Tracking Point System… its your economic status symbol.

    Who wants to buy this for me? Donations will be greatly appreciated…This poor disabled veteran cannot afford it on my pension….
