I’m sure by now most of you have seen the hype around the TrackingPoint Sniper Rifle.  No matter what some may say about the system, it is a cool piece of equipment and I can see the benefits of using one.  When the TrackingPoint Sniper Riflewas first introduced, it was exclusively for the long rifle, and I thought, “Why not have one on an AR platform for our nations warfighters?”

That question has now been answered.

Recently, TrackingPoint unveiled its AR-friendly system.  Unlike the”sniper system”, where the shooter tags, holds the trigger, and waits until the cross hairs meet the tag in the optic before the weapon discharges, the AR platform has a free-fire mode.  The shooter still has to tag the target in order to obtain a ballistic firing solution (DOPE), but once the information is gathered. the shooter can switch to a manually-operated trigger and not worry about the ballistic hold overs and unders.
