Searched for one for a Ruger m77 mk2 and found no left hand models. Gonna be awhile before it is complete due to keeping customers first but I may start making them for Remmy 700's as well. Anyone have any of these "tactical chassis" already and have any suggestions on what to add or take away?

CNC and Manual. Im using 6061 aluminum 2x3 sqaure bar. I cant decide if I should use and existing butt stock like an xcr or mill own adjustable... BTW my FIL is doing most the work as im full time elsewhere and a green machinist.

I picked up a MDT Chassis that weighs 1.6 pounds. Here is their site if you want to get ideas.

Thanks GLC. I like the minimalist style there. I was thinking on a bench style chassis but not so wide and bulky as some ive seen. Which AR Buttstock did you go with? Ive put AR's together and only upgraded to low level magpul and there still alot of play in them. Seems like that play would effect accuracy

I like that chassis and pair it with the LUTH-AR MBA stock I have on my AR10. It is the lightest modular AR rifle stock on the market, but you'd need the extra $50 adaptor to put a fixed stock on it.

Looking at 1.2 pounds for the stock and 1.6 pounds for the chassis system. that is only a 2.8 pound full chassis not bad.

Here is a pic of the MBA

Here is what it looked like before I sent in the barrel to get shortened and fluted. I am waiting for the first Skeletal butt stock that is coming out from MDT. You can see what it looks like on the MDT web site. Will ship first week in Feb. I also ordered a butt stock from the Mako Group that works pretty well not the one in the pic. I checked Mako Group site to show which one but their site is down. KRoyal is correct, in order to use a fixed buttstock you need one of their adapters. If you use a regular a3-a4 butt stock it attaches the same way as a regular AR without adapter. Also changed pistol grip out. At first I canabilized an AR just to see how it all worked together. This is a Savage action

This is interesting.

Magpul is soon to release a chassis system/stock for the R700 that is supposed to weigh around 2.5lbs. Hope they follow suit with one for the Savage 10/110.

They are also soon to release mags (Short action) that will work with AI bottom metal and be priced around $30 in lieu of the $100 or so that AI mags cost. The cost of AI mags is what has kept me from doing the conversion on my rifle...

Plans are to start making and selling these for alot more guns than what are offered right now. Getting the first one out of the way and improving upon the base will be awhile but I hope to pad my pockets with a lil more greenbacks with this venture. Keeping my hopes low but my goals high lol. Saves from disappointment ya know....

Any complaints on anything other than weight on the chassis you guys own and use already. All input will be greatly appreciated.
