Hydra Weaponry is a veteran-owned company and ran. Hydra has a deep history in the firearms industry check out the history section on our website. The company is based in Bangor, Maine. At Hydra, we manufacture the rifle ourselves and very little is contracted out. This allows us to have control over production and not wait on other companies to get our product out the door. In the end Hydra will not sell you anything that is not on the shelf ready to ship. The sales team is always ready to take phone calls and answer any questions you may have.
