American Tactical's Omni Hybrid Maxx Series features a Patent Pending metal-reinforced polymer upper receiver along with a fully-patented metal reinforced polymer lower receiver. 

Adding on the popular Omni Hybrid lower, comes the Omni Hybrid Upper Receiver. This upper receiver is a metal-reinforced polymer upper receiver that accepts all Mil-Spec parts. Weighing in at only 7 ounces, the Omni Hybrid Upper Receiver is super-lightweight, but has the durability of an aluminum forged receiver. With the addition of a metal insert to reinforce the critical load-baring area of the upper, the Omni Hybrid Upper receiver is multi-caliber and can be used as a 5.56 NATO, .300 AAC Blackout, .22 LR, 6.8 Rem. SPC and many other calibers.

"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."

Consumers can purchase the Omni Hybrid Maxx series in several various configurations. Uppers and lowers can be sold separately as well as packaged. American Tactical also offers the Omni Hybrid Maxx Series complete rifle line in 5.56 NATO, .300 AAC Blackout, .22 LR/5.56 NATO Combination Kits. In addition, both the 5.56 NATO and the .300 BLK are manufactured as pistol models.

A complete Omni Hybrid Maxx Series 5.56 NATO rifle basic model has an MSRP of $569.95.
