I stopped by Kinetic Research Group’s boot today to see what was new with their chassis systems. New for 2016 is the Whiskey-3 Gen 5, and X-Ray Gen 2. The Whiskey-3 now features a polymer fore-end with M-Lok slots and a built-in barrier stop, and is a 1/2lb lighter than the previous iteration. The cheekpiece on all the chassis now has increased fore and aft travel, and the buttpad on the Whiskey-3 and X-Ray now has tool-less adjustment via a wheel. The Whiskey-3’s buttstock is adjustable for height and 15 degrees of cant in either direction. The triggerguard on the Whiskey-3 is now made of polymer rather than aluminum.
For CZ fans, the new 180-XRAY chassis fits the CZ-455. At $599 the 180-series is not only competitively priced, but is a very feature-rich option.
Justin of KRG was also nice enough to show me a firing prototype of his continuation of the true Massoud legacy. I am very excited to learn more about this rifle’s development in the future, and I know TFB’s own Nathaniel F. is much more well versed on its history than I.
Thanks to Justin Juarez and KRG for their time!
