Armatix, a German gun manufacturer, just released their plans to bring a 9mm, Armatix iP9 Smart Handgun to the U.S. We can expect it to hit the markets in 2017.

This will be the second Armatix gun to be released into the U.S. The NRA does make an effort to thwart the company’s mandate to put their technology into the firearms.

In 2014, Armatix made headlines when it released the , a .22-caliber “smart” handgun that requires the firearm to be within a certain proximity of an accompanying wristwatch in order to operate.

The makers are working hard on final adjustments in order to have it ready to hit the markets as soon as possible. According to Computerworld, “Several large U.S. retail stores have already met with Armatix,” along with police departments as well.

The iP9 is expected to retail for $1,365, and will require a fingerprint to operate.

        would not risk my life with it…but might be interesting as a collectible/curiosity piece

      Just a part of the plan. Make it too expensive for the average Joe, out law non-smart guns, move on to remove gun ownership from all except select insiders and their protected group. criminals.

    as long as the cop’s family gets at least $10M if/when it does not fire when needed and he/she is killed…

  • frankenbiker

    Yeah, I’m not going to rely on unproven technology to keep my family safe. This is a dangerous idea. Just think, in NJ once this hits the market, thats the only weapon that will be allowed to the public, as per NJ law. http://www.cnn.com/2013/11/23/us/new-jersey-smart-gun-law/index.html

    For years I worked with a lot of dilute acids, and resulted in the loss of almost all of my finger prints. Last time I had to renew my Air Force ID card they worked for 45 min. trying to read my 10 fingers to get one useable print. I had to return next day to a different dept. to use their machine to get a readable print. What happens if I do not hold the gun exactly as I did to educate it to me or as now I have to use my other hand as my index, trigger, finger is in a splint? Join NRA and support them. Remember progressive is code for communism.

      and as you get older they diminish…and some cancer chemo treatments do it as well
      too many what-ifs to trust it with your life…

      • Graywolf12

        True. I did not mention I am 81.
