Magpul has published a press release announcing about the start of sales of their new Pro 700 bolt action rifle chassis. The Pro 700 chassis is designed for short action Remington 700 barreled actions both made by Remington and other manufacturers whose products have Remington 700 footprint.
As one can expect from a new Magpul product, the Pro 700 chassis has a bunch of well thought out and cool features that provide a wide range of adjustability and modularity. It may look to have a simple construction but when designing products like this, it is harder to come up with simpler solutions. In fact, it took the company’s engineers four years of research, development, prototyping, and testing to design this chassis. Below you can find the image of the chassis showing its various features.
Here is also the description of the key features of Pro 700 chassis (quoted from the manufacturer’s website).
FOLDING OR FIXED STOCK
Our folding stock comes with a push-button activated steel hinge with Melonite® finish that is reversible for left or right folding capability with the use of a 5/32” hex wrench. We offer a fixed stock adapter if you want to change with your situation.
Our ambidextrous bedding block can easily support changing back and forth from left and right-hand actions by swapping the QD sling swivel plate, cheek riser, and bolt retainer insert using a 1/8” hex wrench.
HEIGHT, LOP, AND CANT ADJUSTABLE BUTT-PAD
The butt-pad height can be adjusted up 1.33” and down .90” and is adjustable left or right for a total of 5 degrees. Overall LOP adjustment range is from 13.25” to 15.125”.
HORIZONTALLY AND VERTICALLY ADJUSTABLE CHEEK RISER
The cheek riser features a 3-position fore and aft adjustment of +.375”, 0” and -.375” which can also be changed for left or right side usage with a common hex wrench. Cheek riser adjusts in height by 1”.
ADJUSTABLE GRIP OPTIONS
The large trigger guard allows for use with gloves and accepts most factory and aftermarket curved or flat triggers. The polymer grip has a 5 degree forward edge sweep and enlarged palm swell with a 7 degree aft edge sweep for enhanced user comfort, combined with a .75” fore/aft adjustment range. An additional grip option is included in the box with a more aggressive sweep and enlarged palm swell for the shooter who is more inclined to a less vertical grip interface (8 degree forward / 20 degree aft edge sweep).
NIGHT VISION MOUNT
The Magpul Pro NVM (MAG1001, sold separately) is versatile MIL-STD 1913 thermal and image intensified clip-on optic mounting solution designed and optimized for the Magpul Pro 700 rifle chassis. Precision-machined from a solid piece of mil-spec 6061 T-6 hard anodized aluminum, the Pro NVM provides a rigid, seamlessly integrated, repeatable, and easily-installed mounting interface for a wide array of popular clip-on night vision devices.
INTEGRATED AICS MAGWELL
Our integrated AICS pattern magazine well is constructed of reinforced polymer and is optimized for PMAG 5 & PMAG 10 7.62 AC™ magazines as well as most other AICS pattern short action magazines. The low-profile, anti-snag ambidextrous magazine release is made of Melonite-treated steel for wear and corrosion resistance.
Features M-LOK® slots for accessory mounting on the forend (6 slots on the left and right; 7 slots on the bottom) and on the stock (2 on the bottom).
