TrackingPoint Announces Extreme Long Range .338 Lapua Model

web_0

TrackingPoint is certainly trying to make the best of their turnaround. After accepting orders again in September of last year, the company has been on a tear working to expand their product offerings. After adding night-vision capability, the latest announcement is the introduction of the M1400 extreme long-range “precision guided firearm.”

Chambered in .338 Lapua Magnum, the new model is equipped to engage targets out to 1400 yards (hence the name). Capable of finding a target and hitting it within 2.5 seconds, the TrackingPoint system is continuing to evolve.

The new M1400 also includes their latest RapidLok technology which includes adjusting impact to center of mass (if targeted off-center) and automatic adjustment to account for target movement up to 20 mph.

Shipment is slotted for September 1st with a retail pegged at a hefty $16,995, not including matched ammunition. This does include compatibility with the “Zero Signature Lethality” ShotGlass system (video goggles) that can allow the shooter to fire without having to expose themselves back to incoming rounds, though I would suspect this feature is not required for a rifle shooting past 1000 yards.

Interestingly, the company specifically claims a model is shipping to the military and a curious wording of “other United States organizations that can legally fight out adversaries.” Sound like some three-letter agencies to me or just Private Military Contractors.

More details are in TrackingPoint’s announcement on their webpage.

    So have they given up on their 50k $ ultra long range 338/408 case rifle then ? By the time they get their technology to the customer it’s out of date , with todays sniper scopes with internal displays connected from multiple external devices for the professional users, being able to use on any sniper rifle/calibre !!!

    5 dollars shy of 17k… I can buy a new car with that kind of money or put a down payment on a luxury or high end sports car.

    the curious wording of other United States Organizations translates to:

    IRS, DOE, NHTSA, USPS, DOL (including Job Corps and OSHA), and FRA
    (the ever so militarized Federal Railroad Administration :p)

    • Jaedo Drax

      The railroads might get a bit cranky if the FRA tried to impinge on the territory of their own sworn federal officers.

    I came here to see a ridiculous price tag, and I was not disappointed.

  • LCON

    So basically They are revamping there line by making a “Civil” line with names based on a Animal theme and a Quote unquote Military line using a Model number divisible by 200, M600, M800 and now M1400 So I m guessing if they make .308 and .300 they will be models M1000 and M1200 and if they go for a 50 cal It would be M1600

    One very important thing missing on the new rifle. Self-alignment and auto-return to zero. Fired employees main complaint about getting those rifle right is gone. Hire back the fired employees, they were right.

  • Vanns40

    Tracking Point, the company that patented the remote firearm disable device for firearms, promoted it to police, had New Jersey Legislators foaming at the mouth to make it mandatory on all new guns sold. That Tracking Point.

    Not one cent to them, EVER!
