TrackingPoint Announces Extreme Long Range .338 Lapua Model

    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.
