The Best Damn Gun company announced that it was now offering a new chassis for the Remington Model 700 action. The new chassis is designed for the short action and follows on the heels of the long action version that was introduced at the 2017 SHOT Show in Las Vegas.
The chassis, like the original, is a basic chassis that the gunsmith or home builder can use as a base to build a bolt gun. It is not designed to be a nearly complete chassis that is commonly found. Rather, it is a basic platform that the builder can then add a stock, pistol grip and other parts to.
The nice thing about this chassis is that it is designed to be compatible with mil-spec sized AR parts. This allows you to bolt any AR type pistol grip to it. To add a stock, simply screw in a buffer tube and slide on your preferred stock. Up front, you can attach any AR handguard that has an internal diameter that is wide enough to clear the barrel you select.
The chassis is designed to work with any Model 700 triggers. For ammunition feeding, the short action chassis is compatible with AICS .223 and AICS .308 magazines. The chassis is made of 6061 aluminum and is unfinished. The suggested retail price is $545.
