In all seriousness, they should start putting these on police patrol rifles. Maybe they'll hit what they're aiming for in 70 shots or less.

loonatic112358: Didn't something like this come out early last year?


In a sniper-rifle form, yes.

It's a stupid system, imo. The gun doesn't actually pull the trigger if the shot isn't lined up. The primary usage of assault rifles is to suppress. But then if you turn off the auto-target feature, you wasted a metric assload of money.

Not at all. It will become fashionable -- actually, it never became 'unfashionable' -- for marksmen to compete with iron sights and no shooter's aids. We'll just leave most of the precision killing to machines.

black__hippie: Can't wait til the cartel gets their hands on these


Such a problem is easily prevented. Simply prohibit the sale of such firearms to civilians. Then, have the United States government sell these rifles to the Mexican military and police forces. This will guarantee that such firearms are never obtained by Mexican criminal cartels.

Ego edo infantia cattus: So... a fancy scope that tags targets is supposed to make it "impossible" to miss up to 500 yards. Yeah, ok.


It's a little more advanced than that.  The scope tags the target, a computer crunches range and wind info to figure out the hold-over.  You pull the trigger, and the computer blocks the hammer from releasing until the gun's aimed just right.  Once you're holding the trigger and the guns lined up, the hammer falls and the shot breaks.

I worked for a time on something like this. Instead of waiting until the random movements of the shooter lined the target up perfectly, the barrel had an eccentric weight that was spun around it in order to move the aim in a defined pattern. It made for a fairly predictable wait time until it fired, and the rifle was extremely accurate, even with moving targets. Never heard what became of it after I was off the project, but some of the technology that's coming out on these newer weapons sure sounds familiar. Wouldn't be surprised to find that it was licensed from the people I was working with.

And I just spent $500 to put an EOTech G33.STS magnifier on my rifle, to complement the EOTech XPS2-0 I mounted last month.

I love how his rear sight is up to compensate for the fact that his backwards EOTech is basically a fancy, expensive glass window when mounted that way.

It would be cheaper to train animals to walk up to you and blow their own brains out. This IS for hunting right? Right?

ReverendJynxed: It would be cheaper to train animals to walk up to you and blow their own brains out. This IS for hunting right? Right?



Why does a rifle have to be for hunting? I never have and never will hunt, my rifle is for fun at the range only, and my shotguns have killed thousands of clay pigeons. Not everyone who owns a rifle hunts, or even wants to hunt. For this rifle though, I have to assume it will end up in the hands of elite special forces teams and police departments with huge budgets.

Just poking fun. But in a practical sense, it isn't great for home defense because you don't have time to futz with it. At the range, for stationary targets, whoopy! The novelty is likely to wear off fast. The cost...

It's really intended to kill people from a distance but at least you CAN hunt things besides people with it.

Like I said, I am thinking more for elite special forces teams, given the cost and makeup of the weapon.

The hell with hunting...that's just window dressing. The military is going to be all over this technology like flies on stink.

Since the auto-hit hardware only works on targets moving 10mph or slower, it's obviously not for hunting any kind of wild game except perhaps armadillos. Hmm, what else rarely moves faster than 10mph that gets shot at regularly?

So put cross hairs on target, press and hold red button, pull trigger and move barrel around until the gun fires?

We want the police to be inaccurate.  It will make gunning the gestapo down much easier if they still shoot like stormtroopers


FFS... the storm troopers were excellent, precision marksmen.. that was shown in the extermination of the Jawas.. that they seem to not be able to hit a target is because they were routing out the rebel scum so they could be followed back to their hide out..They let luke and the gang escape

In the picture posted, the cop has his $500 EOTech mounted backwards, so he wouldn't be able to use it at all. The holographic reticle would not be visible. He does have a rear iron sight flipped up, so his EOTech is just a fancy glass window between his two iron sights.

Probably $0.50 a round or so, like any 5.56.
