What is a PGF?
The Precision Guided Firearm (PGF) developed by TrackingPoint is the most accurate shooting system in the world. Called the Xact System™, it solves multiple problems that long-range shooters face. The XactSystem ensures repeatable performance and accuracy even at extended ranges.
The PGF also offers applications for smart devices. These apps interact with embedded wifi servers to share real-time or recorded images.
The Problems of Long-Range Shooting
Long-range shots have historically been challenging for big-game hunters. That’s because shot accuracy is diminished by multiple variables: wind speed and direction, curvature of the earth, recoil, and human error caused by range miscalculation and jitter.
For the same reasons, speed and first-shot accuracy have also been difficult for hunters attempting consecutive shots at multiple unknown distances.
The XactSystem PGF Delivers Accuracy
The PGF puts fighter-jet-style, lock-and-launch technology into a rifle system. Using the PGF, you can be an elite, long-range marksman in minutes. You can also more quickly and effectively take multiple shots at varying ranges.
The system virtually eliminates shooter error in...
- Trigger pull
- Environmental inputs
- Range miscalculation
It delivers 5 times the first-shot success rate of traditional systems, at targets up to 1,200 yards, regardless of shooter skill level.
Shots in less-supported positions—like kneeling, barrier-supported, and sitting—are also possible using the PGF.
What Does a PGF Do?
With the XactSystem, shooters can tag, track, and exactly hit an aim point. Using a shot process called Tag Track Xact (TTX), the PGF automatically adjusts for many factors, including:
- Barometric pressure
- Spin drift
- Wind input
What the Shooter Does
To operate the PGF, the shooter...
- Paints the target with the tag to lock on
- Watches as the tag persists, regardless of relative movement
- Aligns the reticle with the tag to produce the firing solution
- Squeezes and holds the trigger to arm the system
When the reticle and tag are optimally aligned, the Networked Tracking Scope releases the guided trigger. As long as you can tag it, you can hit it.
Apps Provide Image Recording and Sharing
Precision Guided Firearms feature smart device applications for sharing real-time shot video and photos with others. This allows for
- Hunters to cooperate with other hunters
- Guides to mentor clients
- Fathers to teach sons the pleasures of shooting or hunting
The ShotView™ App streams real-time video from the Heads Up Display in the Networked Tracking Scope to your smart phone or tablet.
