South African Gun Warrior Gen5 Bolt Action Rifle Chassis

    During the Huntex 2018 exhibition, a South African company called Gun Warrior introduced the latest, Gen5 iteration of their Warrior aluminum bolt action rifle chassis. Although this chassis will be quite a capable platform for multiple applications (tactical, hunting etc.), it is primarily designed for the Precision Rifle Series (PRS) competition shooting.

    As the company notes the green color of the chassis seen in the images is for illustrative purposes only. To my knowledge, they use Cerakote and can apply any Cerakote color upon order.

    One of the features added to the Gen5 chassis is the extended magazine well which has a serrated front surface designed to work as a barricade stop providing a reliable purchase on a number of different barricades. The customers can also order a separate barricade stop mounted onto the forearm as shown in the image embedded below.

    Other features of the chassis include the QD sling swivel mounts on the front portion of the forearm, the Arca-Swiss accessory mounting platform on the bottom of the handguard and a Picatinny rail section extending over the forearm for mounting a bipod.
