Just one week prior to the 2018 Shooting Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT Show) Magpul announced the release of their new Pro 700 Chassis for the Remington 700 rifle. The Pro 700 appears to have addressed all of my criticism of the Hunter 700, although that stock continues to be an excellent value for the entry level precision rifle shooter. The question is, how will the market accept the Pro 700 at this price point in a saturated chassis market.
The highlights include:
- Ambidextrous bedding block (left or right-handed actions)
- Push button folding stock (reversible for left or right folder)
- Tool-less Length of Pull, Buttpad Height/Tilt and Comb Height Adjustment
- Molded, Adjustable for Sweep and Trigger Pull Length
- Large Trigger Guard for Glove Use
- QD Sling Mounting Points
- M-Lok Accessory Slots
- AICS Compatible Magazine Well
- Low-Profile Magazine Release
- Ambidextrous Thumb Shelf
- Length – 32.7” – 34.6” (23.5” when folded)
- Weight – 5.4 lbs
Magpul has set the MSRP at $999.95 and estimated availability in April 2018. Hopefully, we will have more information after we get our hands on the Pro 700 at the SHOT Show.
Several months ago, JMS Tactical sent us one of their Remington 700 chassis to review. Dubbed the “JTAC-Thunder” this chassis offers a number of features that we have come to expect in a fully-adjustable precision rifle system along with some new tricks.

The Modular Driven Technologies HS3 Chassis review video is now up! Watch this space for the web review!
I have been a fan of the Whiskey 3 Chassis from Kinetic Research Group since I was given the opportunity to try the first generation. I used a Gen 3 Whiskey 3 Chassis on my 2014 Precision Rifle Series competition rifle. The Whiskey 3 is an excellent chassis, but the reality is that not every one is in the financial position to be able to afford one.
What if you could reap most of the benefits of the Whiskey 3 Chassis, but at a fraction of the price? This is exactly what KRG delivers with the X-Ray Chassis. Continue reading Kinetic Research Group X-Ray Chassis Review
The market is currently flooded with chassis systems for the Remington 700 rifle. This is for good reason. Chassis systems offer several advantages over a traditional stock. One significant disadvantage to chassis systems is cost. Most are much more expensive than traditional rifle stocks. For this reason I was extremely excited when Modular Driven Technologies sent us one of their $399 LSS Chassis. Continue reading Modular Driven Technologies LSS Chassis Review
Kinetic Research Group is preparing to release a new lightweight, lower cost chassis system in 2014. The new chassis, dubbed the X-Ray, will have similar ergonomics to the flagship Whiskey-3 Chassis (W3C). The new chassis will utilize many polymer components to reduce weight and manufacturing costs. The X-Ray will utilize the same “backbone” as the W3C possibly allowing the end user to upgrade the forend and buttstock over time. Both the W3C and X-Ray Chassis feature a V-bedding system for quick bolt-in installation of your barreled action. The chassis allows for most oversized recoil lugs and barrel diameters of up to 1.5″. The forend will have mounting holes at various positions for the addition of rails, barrier stops, and sling mounting points. Continue reading KRG X-Ray Chassis for Remington 700 and Tikka T3
Modular Driven Technologies recently sent us one of their new LSS Chassis Systems. The LSS is a very minimalist chassis that offers you the option to use your favorite AR15 pistol grip and adjustable buttstock. One of the most important features is that the LSS allows your Remington 700 short action rifle to accept Accuracy International AICS pattern magazines. Our initial impression is that the LSS is a very solid piece. Our factory Remington 700 Varmint rifle dropped right in.
