Primary extraction is an extremely underdeveloped but crucial stage of cycling your firearm. Primary extraction is one of the major causes of rifle malfunctions yet the design has not changed significantly in a century. In a conventional bolt action rifle, the primary extraction is conducted in approximately the last 5 degrees of bolt lift. This creates considerable shock loading on your extractor and brass to the point where the extractor can let go and drop the rifle cartridge.
The HYBRID uses an advanced primary extraction system wherein primary extraction is achieved throughout the entire 90 degrees of bolt lift. This spreads the load over a range 18x greater than conventional design in turn reducing the stress on the fired brass and your extractor while increasing reliability.
ADVANCED PRIMARY EXTRACTION
MULTI CALIBER CAPABLE
One of the most amazing features of The HYBRID is that it is completely modular while extremely user friendly. The barrels are easily removed and replaced - this is done with simple tools that are provided, and without the requirement to check head space with gauges.
The bolt heads are easily swapped out, again with basic tools. This gives you, the end user, the ability to use one rifle for all applications. You can choose to set the rifle up specifically for PRS with a heavy steel barrel and then do a complete caliber change with a carbon wrapped barrel for hunting the hills all in a matter of minutes and in the field or at home.
24" carbon wrapped barrel - 6.7lbs
24" stainless steel barrel - 9.6lbs
Includes bolt & magazine, excludes optic & bipod
User adjustable from 1-3.5lbs
A large range from .223 Rem to .338 Lapua
LIGHTWEIGHT OPTIMIZED DESIGN
The HYBRID is not only a blend of features but also of materials. We are able to optimize the weight of each component based on it's application with materials such as:
4140 alloy steel
H13 Hot work die metal
7075 T6 aluminum
Carbon fiber composites
This has given us the ability to optimize each portion of the action and as a result, we are able to construct the heart of your rifle considerably lighter, stronger, and with far greater optimized features.
QUALITY YOU CAN FEEL
A RIFLE YOU CAN TRUST
CARBON FIBER STOCK
New Zealand is at the forefront of carbon fiber innovation. The HYBRID utilizes this proven technology to bring you a stock that epitomizes our vision of bringing you the apex of revolutionary equipment.
Made from moulded carbon fiber so there is no compromise in strength & integrity. We also assure an ergonomic, lightweight and rigid stock that performs flawlessly on recoil no matter the caliber, no matter the application.
THE PERFECT INTERFACE BETWEEN MAN & MACHINE
YOU MAKE THE SHOT. IT'S OUR JOB TO MAKE IT COUNT
A combination of the finest materials & engineering expertise. Significant research, testing and evaluation has produced match grade barrels of world class quality. Hardy barrels are manufactured for the global market with stringent processes to meet and exceed SAAMI and CIP exacting standards. Discerning hunters and competition shooters are achieving results that can only be expected from the finest in world class barrel craftsmanship. All barrels are:
CNC gun drilled for ultimate precision
Spill bore reamed for extreme consistency
Precision rifled for the utmost control
Hand lead lap finished for that match winning detail.
CONSISTENT RETURN TO ZERO
The HYBRID will consistently return to zero after a barrel has been removed or installed into the action. This means the rifle can be stored broken down in the supplied compact robust carry case. The hard case is also considerably smaller than conventional hard rifle cases meaning it travels a lot better in the truck, on the ATV and in the plane.
ROOM FOR TWO
The barrel compartment within the case conveniently holds two barrels, separated by a foam wedge for stability. Ideal for both the carbon wrapped barrel or stainless steel barrel to complete your kit. Switch out at any time, anywhere.
The fully tunable directional muzzle brake is produced from 400 grade stainless steel. The Hardy muzzle brake is a world leader in recoil reduction and muzzle control. Then we take it to the next level by giving you the opportunity to tune the muzzle brakes position to best suit your load. Simple in concept, exacting in design, optimal in performance.
Comprehensive studies have highlighted the benefits surrounding the “triangle of stability” when applied to bipods within the shooting industry. This data has led to a number of new bipods on the market with wider stances, ensuring that your barrel sits inside the triangle created when fitting a bipod, rather than on the peak. The increased rigidity and stability of this style of bipod makes for a considerable advantage when making the long shots really count.
This being said, none do it better than the HYBRID BIPOD designed by Hardy Rifle. The HYBRID BIPOD takes full advantage of the “triangle of stability” and maximises the performance with features such as:
Carbon fiber legs for additional rigidity
Picatinny mounting to handle heavier recoil and pre-load
Large ball joint locking mechanism for versatility and stability
A mixture of brass and stainless-steel fittings for the ultimate in durability
Increased cant for flexibility no matter what the terrain.
