The TrackingPoint NightDragon – .30 Caliber Precision Shooting in the Darkness


    TrackingPoint is now selling a 7.62 NATO chambered rifle with a night vision optic that will drop a running hog at 500 yards. Called the NightDragon, this rifle system is the latest AR and optic mashup from the innovative Texas company.

    This latest system matches a Lewis Machine & Tool Company 7.62 rifle with the TrackingPoint Night Vision Kit. According to the company, the system is able to achieve precision shots:

    • out to 500 yards
    • on targets moving at up to 15 miles per hour
    • in the dark
    • using the company’s RapidLok fire control system

    The optic records the video it displays, and it also records sound. This allows you to narrate a hunt or otherwise add audio notes to the video.

    The NightDragon follows the introduction of the NightEagle and the long range model in .338 Lapua earlier this year.

    The manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $15,490 for the entire system. That includes a single 20 round magazine, a pivoting 6″-9″ bipod with rail adapter, batteries and charger and other assorted goodies. A 10 round magazine will be provided to anyone in an oppressed state that does not allow its citizens to own standard capacity ammunition feeders. A rifle case does not appear to be included.

    Right now, the company is offering an introductory price of $12,995 for the first 50 they sell. The company is also offering financing, with terms of up to four years.
