American Tactical has introduced a new line of complete rifles built using the company’s reinforced polymer Omni Hybrid Lower Receiver and its brand-new counterpart, the Omni Hybrid Upper Receiver.
The Omni Hybrid receivers are lightweight molded polymer units reinforced with metal inserts at critical load-bearing areas to give the strength of forged aluminum construction. The receivers accept all Mil-Spec parts and can be used to build otherwise-standard AR style rifles and carbines. As such, the Omni Hybrid is multi-caliber and can be used for 5.56, 300 BLK, 22LR, and many others.
The Omni Hybrid Maxx series of guns are available in a variety of configurations in 5.56, 300 BLK, and combination 5.56/22LR kits. Pistol models in 5.56 and 300 BLK are also offered.
“The Omni Hybrid Maxx series is a ground breaking product line that we are all excited about,” says Tony Dichario, President of American Tactical. “This is the first-ever polymer-based upper and lower receiver combination that performs as it should and meets the same mil-spec qualifications as an AR-15 platform made from aluminum forgings. We tested the Omni Hybrid Upper in full-auto. We fired 2,000 consecutive rounds without any malfunctions or cleaning, an accomplishment most aluminum receivers couldn’t make.”
Both the Omni Hybrid lower and upper receivers are also available separately for use in AR building projects or customizations.
An Omni Hybrid Maxx Series rifle in basic 5.56 configuration has an MSRP of $569.
