Our H6 in its final version is nearing completion. We are looking forward to starting deliveries of our H6 bolt action rifle in December of this year. We would like to thank you for the incredible support and feedback we have received from end customers, dealers and practitioners since the beginning of 2023. We then adjusted the production plans for the H6, took requests and suggestions into account and are pleased to be able to inform you of all the innovations and changes that have been incorporated since then. We thank you for your support and patience and apologize for the long delivery time.

PRODUCTION
Due to increased demand, we have decided to manufacture all components in Germany at the HERA location in Lower Franconia/Bavaria, with the exception of the trigger. In the future, we will be able to implement short production times, consistent in-house quality management and cross-departmental cooperation. As with our other products, we rely on uncompromising quality made in Germany.

SYSTEM
The H6 system has an all-steel action, a one-piece bolt and a laser-welded bolt handle. The bolthead has a force-controlled T-extractor which enables both, safe extraction and maximum contact surfaces for the locking lugs. The security concept of a mini system was implemented without compromise in all points. Despite the steel construction, the additional weight was limited to approx. 200 grams. In addition, the final version of the H6 has a screwed barrel, which ensures both, an extremely rigid connection and enables repeatable adjustment of the head space. Due to the form- and force-fitted mounted picatinny rail, this results in a maximum level of rigidity which is reflected in the high level of precision that corresponds to the weapon.

TRIGGER
We are pleased to be able to win over the company RECKNAGEL, one of the most renowned companies in the weapons industry on the German market, to produce one of the core components of our H6 – the trigger. The RECKNAGEL company can look back on many years of experience in the development and production of high-precision triggers for various systems. The optimized H6 trigger has a safety that can be operated with the trigger finger and is probably one of the best standard triggers that can be installed, both technically and qualitatively. All triggers for our H6 system are manufactured by RECKNAGEL at their location in Lower Franconia/Bavaria.

The H6 system also has a Picatinny rail mounted on the system housing and an A2 compensator. Available in black, sand and olive green.

I honestly don't know if I hate it or not, but I'm just trying to figure out why? What is the benefit of the side-load mag? Anyone?

To be different. Some people will buy it for that reason alone.

Side mount magazine also allows shooting prone with longer mags that would otherwise be in the way; This is one reason why the Bren Gun (and a bunch of other light machine guns from ww1/2) is a top-loader.

Also, having the mag at the side allows you to have the mag and trigger group at the same place along the gun, so it can be effectively a few inches shorter (or a longer barrel and same OAL).

Side loading is common on little known guns like the M60 (or most things chain fed) its a very effective system.

Also cool that they use typical ar mags. Overall looks like they put some pretty extensive thoughts into it.

The stock looks pretty weird, but each to their own. Price wise, theres no reason a bolt should be cheaper than a semi-auto, so if people are willing to pay the cash for a wcr or m10, I bet it will sell ok. Overall not a huge market for it in canada, but the range monkeys in their tacomas will like it (and their boyfriends too).
 
Damn, I'll be honest. This thing looks slick. For some reason the lines and the side mag just do it for me. Dope looking gun.

^Ditto. I think it looks cool. I heard that one of the dealers noted has indicated a $1599 sell price, guess we'll see.

Weird to see such negative comments about it's appearance, you detractors ought to go look at a Hi Point Carbine then reconsider. :)

If I was in the market for a .223 this would get my purchase for sure. It's unique and it stands out from the rest of the tactical looking bolt actions. This is the first "Modern" bolt action I've seen that I think I'd want in my safe. $1599 seems more then reasonable considering this is a completely new design. Damn maybe I do need a .223

Mags sticking out the bottom of a bolt gun kinda blows for hunting. Just gets in the way when you're prone, or sitting Indian style.

.223 is a good cartridge for high volume field shooting (ie: varminting) so having detachable box mags is handy, so a pretty good use case on the prairies here. Some places in Europe, they drop feral pigs and boars like we drop gophers here.

Pretty different philosophy of use between the Sten and whatever this abomination is.
I’d also be concerned about magwell blow out in case of a failure. At least with a standard mag configuration, the blowout is directed down and away from the shooter, not directly across their visage, as is the case with this rifle.
And lastly, good luck tracking a target that’s running from left to right with a magazine blocking half your FOV.

Unsurprisingly, this was developed by Germans. I guess they decided to take their incredibly overcomplicated automobile design philosophies and apply them to firearms as well.
