Technology and practicality fused to create the ultimate in lightweight firearm systems.

The Concept

PROOF Research is redefining the future of firearms by employing next-generation materials and novel manufacturing processes to create state-of-the-art carbon fibre barrels that are changing the industry standard for accuracy, durability and barrel longevity. Their patented manufacturing process utilizes aircraft-grade carbon fibre in conjunction with high-temperature aerospace resins to produce a truly game-changing product.

No longer does longrange need to mean heavyweight. For those extended hunts, or walks up the mountain - choose a system with pinpoint accuracy, that isn't going to slow you down and burn you out.


No compromise. No shortcuts.

Get a complete system. Ready to shoot, setup just for you.

The Purpose

With such a wide range of custom rifle builds available to you, it makes sense to first define the systems primary purpose. While Proof Research's rifle all centre around their unique and class-leading barrels, they have several options, depending on where the system is most likely to be deployed.

Additional consideration like wanting to utilise factory ammo come into play here. Regardless, we will work with you to find the perfect match between rifle and ammo and ensure you have everything you need to get out and shoot.


The Summit is Proof's lightest precision hunting platform. Designed to meet the challenges of hunting big game in high country, it’s a precisely engineered trophy-harvesting machine that couples reduced weight with durability and long-range accuracy to impress even the most veteran shooter. This is the pack-friendly rifle designed for the extreme hunter who likes to go farther and hit harder without compromising performance.


Designed to meet the challenges of the long-range hunter the Terminus possesses the core qualities of a professional sniper’s rifle—extreme accuracy, consistency, rigidity, and durability—but with significantly reduced weight and ergonomics optimized for hunting. Easy to carry, terminally accurate at extreme ranges, and more than rugged enough for the rigours of high-country hunting, the Terminus is the ultimate long-range hunting platform.


The ultimate long-range precision tactical system for combat or competition. Features include an adjustable cheek piece, a nearly vertical grip and a low-profile forearm. By combining Proof's patented carbon fibre barrel with our hand-laid carbon fibre/Kevlar® composite stock and superior action they have created an incredible shooting system that weighs a fraction of traditional tactical rifles while compromising nothing. There is simply no better solution for those who actually have to carry their rifle before they shoot it.


From varmints to big-game to long-range precision, SWITCH has you covered. Barrel changes in a few minutes with hand tools. Light enough for all day carry. Engineered for consistent long-range accuracy. Offered in five cartridges with additional barrels available in most short-action calibres. It’s like a safe full of custom rifles rolled into one.
