Pflugerville, TX -(AmmoLand.com)- TrackingPoint announced today its first night vision product for the company’s Precision-Guided Firearms (PGFs).

The Night Vision Kit (NVK) is available for most fielded and future PGFs. The NVK provides Gen2 –like night vision performance. The NVK is comprised of a software upgrade on a Thumb Drive and high intensity Infrared (IR) Illuminator, which enables the scope's embedded infrared sensitive CMOS sensor to detect light not visible to the human eye.

Depending on the strength of the IR Illuminator, targets can be engaged and tracked out to 200 yards at night. With the NVK, a shooter can tag-and-track at night, pulling the trigger to automatically acquire and track targets. When trigger pull completes, the target is instantly eliminated. Total Time-To-Kill (TTK) is approximately 2.5 seconds. RapidLok Fire Control is image stabilized, enabling you to make off-hand shots and shots on the run.

Additionally, the IR Illuminator comes with a rail mount kit. The NVK retails for $2495 and will begin shipping on April 1st. TrackingPoint is accepting orders now.

“Our customers have patiently waited for night vision capabilities,” said John McHale, TrackingPoint CEO. “Now they can make extraordinary shots in total darkness.” Later this year the company will announce additional night vision and thermal products for their Precision-Guided Firearms.”
